I think Santorum is actually richer than Romney isn't he? He said something to that effect in one of the debates. He said whatever Romney's taxes
were, his were probably worse.
Huntsman was a solid candidate, and he should have had more support, but I highly expect to see him in someone's cabinet as Secretary of State. He
is perfect for that job, and he will be great at it, and it will set him up for 2016 as the nominee. (Unless Jeb runs.)
I was ok with McCain for a little while, and then he showed his lack of leadership by accepting Palin without even talking to her first. That showed
me he was only interested in winning, and not interested in running the country. He has since turned me off even more by supporting more Patriot Acts
and NDAA, and the debt ceiling raise, etc.
I agree Obama is not the evil devil the GOP thinks he is, and I think there are some that simply don't like his race. BUT, more importantly to me,
he is very weak. He caved in to Pelosi, he caved in to the racist demands for Beer Gate, he caved in to the Republicans on the tax breaks during the
Debt Ceiling, he apologized all over the world for America's successes.
My problem with Obama is when I compare him to guys like
Check out that
link, and imagine Obama in a room with that guy negotiating for the sake of the world. Putin will rip him a new one physically, mentally,
intellectually, and tenaciously! The same goes for most of the other candidates as well. Our President should be well-respected in all arenas and
extremely steadfast and capable, and we just don't have one of those to choose from. I suffer from Putin-envy, and it makes it hard to pic any of
our panty-waisted nominees to lead this once-great country back to greatness.
