    Palin and Romney are the top republican candidates for the 2012 election.

    That would be Michael Brown. Or "Brownie" as Bush famously referred to him. This conspiracy hatching nut job was the man in charge of FEMA (the department in charge of disaster response in America) when Katrina hit New Orleans. Yup, we should all listen to his theories for sure.

    Im no fan of Romney and, as some on here will know, Im an atheist but I think that last sentance sounds very bad. If it had read "a christian/muslim/jew etc and a born again, imagine this crew having the codes to nukes" then Im sure people would have paid more attention. It sounds pretty bad.

    I know a number of Mormons. I think their religion is pretty wacky (but to me they all are) but so far all have been good, honest people. Im not sure what that statement is supposed to mean.

    Havent checked the opinion polls myself, but at least one is saying that if an election were held tomorrow, Obama would get the arse
    Good thing that they elect Presidents for 4 years. While I am not very happy with the current situation, I don't see how anyone could have done better than what Obama has done.

    Speaking of Mormons I find it funny that mormons vote for Republicans in such huge numbers when a vast majority of the Republican southern evangelical base strongly dislikes if not actively hates them.

    True but they are traditional with the family playing a very important role, very patriotic and like a degree of independence from a strong federal government. Conservative with a small 'c' and these are all core Republican values.

    Question, SS - if the Democrats started a crackdown on gun control, would you cross the aisle?

    Rick Perry. OH. MY. GOD. He had a catastrophic moment in tonight's GOP debate. It's already being called the worst debate moment of all time. I can't think of a worst political moment myself. I can't stand the guy and I actually felt bad for him.
