    Obama doesn't even have a strategy to combat terrorism or to deal with Iran, other than his staff saying jihadists need a better job and to warn against backlash. He might not be "at war with Islam" but Islam is at war with everybody else.

    I did not vote for Obama either time, but a few observations are in order. No one seems to admit voting for him, yet he won a substantial victory not once but twice. If you in fact did not vote for Obama, you voted for a liberal Republican in 2008 and voted for a cult member that is liberal in 2012. Obama got 36% of the vote in the state I vote in, what about yours? What did you do to effect the nomination of a conservative Republican in 2008 and 2012?

    Another point, everyone of you are going to harp on Obama until the day he is out of office. He has less than two years left. You are going to harp on him so long you will do nothing to ensure a true Republican is nominated in 2016 and will wake up November 2016 one morning and wonder why another Democrat was elected. And the beat goes on. For those of you that think there is an ounce of difference between the present state of the Democrats and Republicans, get your heads out of the sand.

    If you want an accurate measure, read the Constitution and compare the two parties. You will see a gap. Better yet, compare the two parties to a Holy God and you will see a very wide gap.

    I'm starting to wonder if all the harping on President Obama is racially motivated. Of course we will hear excuses of that not being the case.

    As usual, the Democrat response to conservative criticism of Obama is to call all of us racists. We harp about Obama because he is systematically destroying the country we love. Our criticism would be the same if he were white, Hispanic, or green with purple stripes. You have no answer for our arguments, so you play the race card. This is known, to be relatively polite, as intellectually vacant. Much like the President's foreign and domestic policies.

    Well this is full of a bunch of assumptions here...which doesn't surprise me. This is proving my point. You're making judgement calls without information...which is intellectually vacant.

    Hmmmm. I'm starting to wonder if we have a sock puppet.

    Zaac from Atlanta, Ga disappears, along with his constant barrage of accusations of racism of the BB members.

    Now another Atlanta Ga poster comes along and is here a very short time before HE calls everyone a racist.

    I don't think your idea has any merit. What were we supposed to do --vote for Obama? There wern't many options. By the way, Romney was and is, a much better candidate than McCain.

    I bet the great majority of conservative voters voted for John and Mitt --even those associated with the Tea Party.

    So what did you do to ensure a conservative nominee those years? Answer, probably nothing but post on the internet. Mitt by the way was a terrible candidate. Look at his record while governor of MA on abortion, gay rights, gun control, and government run health care. You will see they are exactly like Obama's now. If he was that good of a candidate, he would have won, wouldn't he?

    Well I will be glad to answer your questions, but don't know who Tad is. In 2008 I voted for Chuck Baldwin of the Constitution Party. In 2012 I was a delegate to their Presidential nominating convention and voted for Virgil Goode.

    Hank when I said harp on Obama, it was not in relation to race. It was the idea that the time harping on Obama could be better spent getting a decent candidate for 2016.

    Totally agree with this thought, but don't count on the Rs fulfilling your dream.

    IMHO there are a few that could fill the bill, but the closer one comes to being a "TRUE CONSERVATIVE", the more the establishment Rs are gonna ambush him. The last two POTUS elections speak to this fact.

    I am almost to the point that I feel the Rs are so confident that conservatives will vote "R" that they have no incentive to offer up anybody other than a RINO. (Seems sometimes that they (Rs) want to guarantee that a D will win, based on their choice of candidate.)

    Again, IMHO, to continue to vote R after we've seen their idea of a "conservative" candidate in '08 & '12 is just proving them right.
