Not sure if he would be a liability, but I find it difficult to see how the two of them could suddenly make up and be partners.

Still, while I think that Newt Gingrich is a non-factor these days, Ron Paul still needs be be heard from re his group of supporters.

(CNN) - Rep. Ron Paul will not step aside even if Mitt Romney soon clinches the 1,144 delegates needed to secure the Republican presidential nomination, the candidate said Monday.

"If tomorrow, Romney had the absolute number, I would probably continue in a modified way to maximize the number of delegates to go to the convention," Paul said on CNBC's "Squawk Box," adding that his supporters insist he stay in the running.

I thought that Pres. Obama was this year's "socialist of the year"???


(CNN) Former GOP White House contender Jon Huntsman on Monday explained the comparison he made between the Republican Party and Communist Party of China the night before as "waxing philosophical" on the state of politics.

On Sunday night Huntsman equated being disinvited by the Republican Party from a Florida fundraiser in March after he floated the idea of a third party to "what they do in China on party matters if you talk off script," according to political blog BuzzFeed.

I found this bit from the link Macfury posted quite funny:



Um... excuse me... "correctly described the GOP"? Didn't the size of the federal government grow enormously under Bush II?

Unless the question had to do with empty rhetoric...
A valid point re stats, CM. This is why certain studies need to be taken with a grain of salt.

I rather like Jon Huntsman. He seems like a very intelligent person.

It's a shame that he did not do better in the Republican leadership race, although he was a longshot to begin with. (And unlike Obama in the Democratic race, he didn't have the power of Oprah to help boost his chances.)

I too liked Huntsman, and felt that he would have made a good candidate, Sonal. He, like Ron Paul, stated their views and stood by them, even in the onslaught of conservative Tea Party criticism. While I disagree with more of Ron Paul's views than those held by Huntsman, it is Ron Paul who has been consistent in his views, and expressing them in an honest manner, regardless of what many Republicans feel should be representative of their party platform.

Paix, mon amie.

Good to know, Macfury. I only wish he could have been more progressive, in the style of FDR and LBJ. Such is Life.

Of course, if Pres. Obama wins again, I shall be overjoyed ...................
