    Strange, indeed; if he aligns with the Limbaugh ultra-conservatives, failure is eminent. If the Limbaugh followers really thought he was onto something, they would persuade him to run for president himself. Granted, he would have to take a huge pay cut, but there are perks.

    I cannot agree that Romney is a comic book villain. He is ultra-wealthy, out-of-touch with John Q. Public, and is perceived as insincere, non-caring and one dimensional.

    IMHO, Hillary Clinton is a logical successor; Biden is even less likeable than Romney. I enjoy comic-relief at least as much as the other guy, but Biden hasn't got what it takes (popularity) to get elected. At least with Hillary, we would have Bill as part of the package. That comes with some good and some bad.

    Before or after she grew to the size of a Buick? Something more along the lines of Halle Berry or Jennifer Garner would be a prize worth winning LOL.

    I actually liked the BBW Anna Nicole as well as the regular one.

    There, our perception is different. I think Romney has surrounded him with so many nutjobs, he is at least half a nutjob himself. Not to mention his own communicative breakdowns, which frankly in other countries would have made him unelectable to begin with.

    IMHO, Hillary Clinton is a logical successor; Biden is even less likeable than Romney.

    Well, Clinton is old, and there's a, what, 12.000 page book on her sexual life. I think it's possible that she runs. But I think it's not possible that she wins.

    What did I tell you people? Nazis riding dinosaurs.

    Police: Arizona woman runs down husband with car for not voting

    An Arizona woman, in despair at the re-election of Democratic President Barack Obama, ran down her husband with the family car in suburban Phoenix on Saturday because he failed to vote in the election, police said on Monday.

    Police said Daniel Solomon told them his wife became angry over his "lack of voter participation" in last Tuesday's presidential election and believed her family would face hardship as a result of Obama winning another term.

    I am relatively sure you haven't even heard a 10th of Obama's rather hilarious communication breakdowns. He & especially Biden have had some amazingly Dubbya-esque moments.

    Probably. But would they weigh in against the cartoon villain comments the Romney camp became famous for? Like, I can't remember anything that really made the news. - And I am not saying "liberul mudia", I am saying, to here over the pond.

    Romney has an air about him; you know the 'I can't figure out why everyone else doesn't get it' look. His body language and look seems to say things that contradict the things his mouth is saying. Since non-verbal is 85% if communication, that is what the people tend to believe.

    Obama communicates more like Ronald Reagan (sorry, but it is what it is), he makes people (except the extreme right) feel good. Reagan wasn't so much a great leader, but he gave people a warm, fuzzy feeling about being Americans. Romney gave me a WTF feeling, and Obama flies by the seat of his pants, but it is o.k.

    President Obama will go down as one of the greats. Detroit lived, Bin Laden died, fought the great recession, ended the Iraq debacle, same goes for the other
    Bush war (if all goes to plan), ended Don't ask don't tell (a disgrace). Spoke in favor of proper marriage equality. Now make PR a state, appoint more moderate rational people to the SCOTUS, we need a renewable energy initiative, and fiscal things, but it's already a good record.
