  1. Does this trump the field?

    Trump would make a great nominee for the Republics. He ran a casino into bankruptcy, even though the house never loses.

    How could anyone support a republican? They have put us in a near depression, gave us huge debt, shipped jobs overseas, attacked: the middle class, seniors, veterans, policemen, firemen, teachers, muslims, hispanics, union workers, government workers, college students, women's rights, education, consumer safety programs, unemployed, and those who have no health care. In Boner's 3 months, there has been no jobs bill, only anti abortion, anti NPR, anti union, and 'In God We Trust' legislation.

    Amusing also. The very best candidate so far......only has 3% of his party vote.

    Just goes to show, Americans have no sense when it comes to politics......precisely why we ObamaDisaster, now.

    Go get jobs, you suckers of the government teat. Republicans didn't wreck the economy. Obama has done more to destroy it in 2 years than any republican has ever done. Wake up and smell the coffee. He's an, uh, indecisive, uh, inexperienced, uh, clown.

    So Republicans are slightly more enthusiastic about voting, but they are unimpressed with the current crop of potential hypothetical candidates. Their best, Mike Huckabee - a man who only appeals to social conservatives, barely leads the field with a meager 19%. President Obama's approval numbers have been pretty good these past few months, and should continue to improve as the economy improves.

    Of course the insane Democrats will renominate this abysmal President. What choice do they have? But if you used a secret ballot and included Hillary Clinton, I guarantee you that Hillary would win.

    Actually, I look forward to Obama being the candidate and getting tossed out in humiliation. Have you seen the poll numbers on Obamacare??? Come November, 2012, REMEMBER OBAMACARE and how your personal freedom has been violated by this abysmal President and his lackey Democrats in Congress.

    House Speaker/Designated Crybaby Boner continues to sit on his hands about a Jobs bill !! The whining
    CREEPublicans continue to whine about abortion despite Obama's Executive Order which is crystal clear.
    Does anybody have the backbone to initiate assertively the necessary budget cuts to avoid default ??
    Why is Congress stealing their paychecks without a giant step towards a more balanced budget for FY '12 ??

    "How could anyone support a republican?"

    And I suppose Democrats are just perfect little angels that act only in the best intrest of our country and it's citizens, right? As far as I can see, both sides are abysmal at best. I feel sorry for those that post their comments on here, supporting either Democrats or Republicans. They all sound like brainwashed cheerleaders.

    I would vote for Donald Trump. I bet he wouldn't go on a vacation during a libian crisis.

    I believe that President Obama has been highly disrespected by his opponents, much like Mandela was even when he became president of South Africa. When you take a look at the Republican Party, they have attacked the middle class including teachers, veterans, police and firemen, as well as the health care system. While that Boner has been Speaker of The House, he has done nothing with the jobs, only anti-abortion and anti-NPR. Republicans are like dictators. They only want to boost up their supporters while trying to hush up their critics. President Obama has greatly improved the economy and I believe if he is given another 4 years, he will be able to greatly reduce the deficits in America and be able to bring us back the Clinton days. I am a college student, and I can't afford tuition even at a Community College level, and the Republican Party offer no credits of any economic significance.

    people just do not want to believe and or admit they were DOPED by the GOP after voting for them...so concerned about color, birth certificate, Muslium, and guns, they voted against their own BEST INTEREST....guns and a birth certifacte is not going to put food on your table or keep a roof over your head. When Republicans talk about any non critical issues ...BEWARE
