I had a chance to attend a Romney rally in DC recently and didn't really like what I saw.

No matter what kind of conservative you are, the guy can't stick with one position on any big issue no matter how hard he tries. :lol:

Last time I checked, he was the money leader and led the straw poll at CPAC. He is also leading in the polls for the New Hampshire primary.

Is this really the guy to beat for the GOP nom?

I would expect Romney to be the money leader. He has the moneyed interests in New England all tied up. Romney wont win, but I expect whoever does win may select him for a running mate precisely because he's got the mullah mullah.

Yeah, I think a Giuliani / Romney ticket would be likely for that reason. My preferred outcome would be Thompson / Giuliani, if everything I've read about Fred Thompson is true (and if he gets around to actually announcing his candidacy).

I'd prefer a Thompson/Romney ticket. Thompson because he's got the balls to run on a conservative platform. Romney because he's got the $$$.

I despise Rudy. He's not a conservative. He's pro-death, pro-homosexual, anti-guns. There isn't a thing in that list I can support. In reality he's probably further left than Hillary. And to top it off, he's a serial-adulterer and a terrible father.

Have you read Hugh Hewitt's book "A mormon in the white house?"

I like Rom but i think he should just stick to his decison instead of jumping back and forth.

I absolutely detest Romney. The man has no principles, other than doing whatever it takes to win. That makes him no different than Hillary, which no GOPer should be like.

If there is one Conservative it would be Fred Thompson. Reason why this Crop of Candiates is a failure is due in part of Moveon.org's sucessful Fear and Smear scare Tactics that knocked off other true Conservatives.

Just who would those true conservatives be?/ Allen?? Sorry but he went & macaca-ed himself outta contention. Santorum could even hang on to his own seat & Frist was part of the GOP Congressional leadership that allow so much shit to go on that he discredited himself.

As for me, Thompson is now my #1 preference

Ron Paul is more of a strict constitutionalist rather than a libertarian.

When asked about abortion during one Republican debate he said that that sort of thing should be in the municipal jurisdiction.

I've heard of dry (liquor free) counties... but municipal abortion laws?

Further, when polled, he did not think that gays should be able to serve openly in the military. Hardly a position that enhances individual liberty.

While he believes in less government, he also thinks that the US should withdraw from NATO and the WTO. His argument is that doing so would enhance the sovereignty of the United States but that sort of talk puts him into the realm of John Edwards. However, unlike Edwards, he argues that the US should negotiate bilateral trade agreements but thinks that the trilateral NAFTA is too loose. Of course, Edwards' position is strict protectionism.

Ron Paul is the dark horse in this race. He has a massive grassroots following, and he is the ONLY Conservative of any stripe in the GOP bid. America has been waiting for him a long time. We can start fixing everything that went wrong starting with the war of northern aggression.

I wonder if there's any possibility of a Thompson & Paul ticket?

A buddy of mine in NH met Paul and was impressed but was concerned Paul didn't have the name recognition to make it. I wouldn't want to see someone like the ex-Mayor go all the way since he's so far left.
