    Inexperience and incompetence coupled with multiple lies and charisma trump being right in today's political landscape.

    Good move for Romney. The voting public will most likely buy another pig in a poke. So why bother?

    And all of God's people said...Amen.

    Guess he finally looked at polling data, something he clearly wasn't able to do in 2012.

    I wasn't embarrassed one bit to vote for him in 2012. I'm extremely proud that I voted for him.

    Most here have already told you that we didn't want him running again because he has already had his chance. Former losers don't win - generally speaking. It's going to take someone who can lead the GOP AND get the votes of some of the left. Romney can't do it.

    I have no idea - (for people who believe that America is a theocracy and that we HAVE to vote in a Christian as POTUS) - which person they voted for last time or will the next time.

    You are only screaming hallelujah because it's you're last hurrah - pun intended - on Romney.

    I can't wait to see who you scream about in 2016.

    Is that why so many in the GOP are so fond of Ben Carson?

    They'll choose somebody who is not from the GOP. Let's face it. The GOP comes across as uncaring, unloving, selfish, greedy and just doesn't listen. The GOP political positions often run contrary to the Biblical spiritual position.


    People have recognized that the folks who profess to be conservatives are political conservatives. Most aren't spiritual conservatives.

    Folks in the GOP are too about those who are just like them and nobody else for them to claim to be spiritual conservatives.

    The world sees through the facade and there won't be another GOP President for a while.

    So who is worthy of your support?

    Rand Paul? Presbyterian with skeletons in his closet from college.

    Marco Rubio? Catholic, then Mormon, then Baptist, back to Catholic

    Chris Christie? Mainstream Roman Catholic

    Rick Perry? Non-denominational evangelical

    Jeb Bush? Episcopalian, now Catholic

    Rick Santorum? Conservative Catholic

    Scott Walker? Evangelical non-denominational. Father was Baptist preacher.

    Mike Huckabee? Baptist

    Just as a reminder, I don't vote republican or democrat. Both parties are irreparably broken. We need to start over.

    This is why I've never understood this GOP seeming approach of "it's just his turn". McCain lost to Bush in 2000 so it was his turn in 2008. Romney was soundly beaten by McCain in 2008 so it became his turn in 2012.

    If things go as they have in the past, the GOP nominee will be either Rick Santorum or Rick Perry because it's their turn. :rolleyes:

    Then the lot of you need to be quiet about any of the candidates moral stances on anything.

    If Christians throw their collective support behind another Mormon, it should be clear for ya.:smilewinkgrin:

    I've never claimed anyone to be worthy of the Christian's support. But I can certainly tell you who is NOT.

    If the candidate is against Christ, we shouldn't be for him. I don't care if the United States unravels and disappears off the face of the earth as a result of who is elected instead. The stance of the Christian should always be in opposition to a candidate who is against Christ.

    I don't think it's in the best interest of the country to elect as President any person who is receiving their wisdom from satan.

    Well, you're going to have to make a choice. Is a Catholic for or against Christ? What about a Presbyterian?

    This is where I do my homework. Like with Barack Obama. If everything I see of you runs contrary to who you say you are in Christ, then NOPE. You won't get my vote.

    Don't tell me you're pro-choice but anti-capital punishment.
    Don't tell me you're pro-life but pro-capital punishment.

    All that tells me is that you're speaking politics to me and not in the Spirit of Christ as there is NO contradiction or confusion in Christ.

    If you want me to support you because you are a fellow Brother or Sister in Christ, then I'm gonna investigate and see for myself whether you are trying to sell me political conservative morality or if you're speaking from a position of Christ that's filled with His love .

    I think Mike Huckabee is such a person where he appears to be a follower of Christ, but he's allowing politics to shape his positions more than seemingly the Holy Spirit.

    Just out of curiosity - how about anti-abortion and pro-capital punishment?

    I can respect a person who is against abortion and the death penalty


    Why not! I am!!!!
    And there is a difference in the two actions.

    With abortion - the baby has no choice (actually -he is the only one who should be allowed to choose)
    With the death penalty - the individual chose to break a law that demands the punishment of his life.

    My guess is, and of course it cannot be proven nor disproved that the Koch brothers took him aside and said, "None of our money is going to you".

    Salty the problem is we know there are innocent people on death row. By that fact alone you should oppose the death penalty.

    I do feel it is inconstant for a person to say they are pro-life but are against helping the child or mother after the child is born. Also, to me, it is inconsistent for a person to say they are pro-life but are opposed to helping the mother during her pregnancy through nutrition and educations programs. That only means the person holding these view are pro-birth but not really pro-life. All IMHO.

    Here have a MD.

    Spreading your disinformation again. Not ethical of anyone, especially of a preacher.
