    Politicians have been faking that they are human for some time.

    “I do miss Reagan. He was a real leader.”

    Republicans say that, but they don’t mean it. The party has shifted so far to the right, Reagan would be derided as too moderate today. Republican leadership wouldn’t let him anywhere near the presidency.

    The Columbus Dispatch Capitol Insider mentioned the GOP poll. Next to it was an item about an Ohio Republican ranting about churches backing Governor Kasich’s plan to expand Medicaid. His quote: “If government is the solution, why should I take the time to go to church and donate money to the poor, when all I have to do is have the government take money out of my paycheck and redistribute it to the poor.” I guess he"s never heard or read the passages where Jesus said “The poor you will always have with you.”, or “Go. Take all you have and sell it, give it to the poor, then come, follow me.” Some Christian he is! Sounds like a rich white guy to me! And the tea partiers (who keep INSISTING they are not Republicans, just Conservatives) wonder why their nominal party and ideology is being marginalized.

    Our embassy in Kuwait was attacked during Reagan’s term. He refused to call it a terrorist attack. Obviously, there was a COVER UP!

    I wouldn’t consider it a bad thing, Mechanic. Imagine if we had 2 or 3 GOOD candidates to choose from. Those willing to buck a party platform and say “This is how we can do it – I don’t care if some of the ideas came from the other side!” If we could get candidates who cared less about their party and more about America, we might actually get somewhere.
    Unfortunately, the furthest an honest candidate can get is the House. After that, you need too much donation money to run for Senate or President, which means you have to sell your soul and your vote at some point.

    “Come off as”? It seems to me that that’s what they are! The GOP sales spiel strikes me as being “put us in power so that we can punish you for not living up to our standards- but don’t dare call us out when we don’t!”

    Here’s a interesting opinion on the matter:

    Do conservatives even want to win?

    Or just promise everything to the low information voters. “I will cut the deficit in half” and “unemployment will be at 7%” and my election is " the moment that the oceans rising slowed and the planet began to heal".

    Then once you get in and do nothing you promised, just blame somebody else.

    This seems like today’s winning strategy and the GOP should follow suit. Forget the hard truth and reality talk, just BS your way into power.

    Reagan was led by Nancy who was led by her astrologer which led us to the disaster of the Bush admins.

    They didn’t have a better candidate, they had better marketing. More effective scare tactics (right to choose ads? seriously?) and a media unwilling to challenge the dishonesty and campaign for them as if God himself was on the ticket.
    The Romney campaign was just inept.

    radicalrootplant, there are Volumes of printed evidence to prove that Ronald Reagon was not led around by Nancy or anyone! He had a lifetime of independent thinking and had experience in leading wherever he was working, Hollywood Union, or Governor of California or the earlier decade of being TV Spokesperson for a successful corporation. His presidential 2 terms show he listened to all sides on issues but made his own decisions, such as his policy on the USSR, that went against “accepted D.C. wisdom” since WW2….and the result was that the USSR collapsed because of the Reagan Policy….not a gun fired, just time for the plan to work.
    Bush 1 was a poor imitation, spineless…“read my lips, no tax hike”….
    Bush 2 did not even claim to be a Reagan Conservative.
    GW incorporated liberal policies under the term “Compassionate Conservative” with the stress on the compassion of amnesty for illegal aliens and federal largesse to the “poor”….his failure to Veto overspending proves it.
    American Liberalism caused the American Disasters.

    ’“If we could get candidates who cared less about their party and more about America”

    The Republicans had Huntsman, but they sure got rid of that “Rino” in a hurry didn’t they?’

    Actually, there was another Republican candidate that virtually no one heard of beyond the early primaries.
    Buddy Roemer (sp?), ex-gov of Louisiana, ran for president and did well enough in early primaries to qualify to get on the debate stage according to the Republicans’ stated rules at the time.
    Republican ‘leadership’, whoever that is, would not let him anywhere near the stage and he never took part in any debate.
    Buddy’s platform was that there was too much money in politics/government and there should be strict limits on bribes campaign contributions.
    His campaign was effectively quashed by Republican hidden leadership.

    George W. Bush was a liberal?
    You’re trying to blame liberals for allowing 9/11, an unnecessary war of invasion, tax cuts for the wealthy, elimination of a budget surplus, Medicare Part D, earmarks as far as the eye can see, ALL unfunded?
    Next, your gonna claim that Newt is a great candidate because of all his family values.
