Frustrates the living hell out of me. In "vetting" the candidates the "purists" generally have made them voice positions that virtually guarantees that they can't win a national election. Just stupid. We keep getting killed by "friendly fire".
    When??

    Remember this from Jan 7 2012 R. Debate. Stephanopoulas askinging Romney about Republicans banning (gasp!) contraceptives?

    From Wiki:
    Romney got into a long discussion with moderator George Stephanopoulos over whether states have the right to ban contraception or whether that was trumped by a constitutional right to privacy. Romney said, "So you're asking, given the fact that there's no state that wants to do so and I don't know of any candidate that wants to do so, you're asking could it constitutionally be done? We can ask our constitutionalist here," gesturing to Ron Paul, which drew laughter and applause from the audience.[58] The discussion continued until Romney grew frustrated at the repeated questioning and asserted, "States don't want to ban contraception. So why would we try and put it in the Constitution?... Contraception, it's working just fine, just leave it alone."[58] Stephanopoulos later joked on The Colbert Report that he had a bet with fellow moderator Diane Sawyer that he could get Romney to say "contraceptions are working just fine".[58] Jon Huntsman, in response to a question on civil unions, joked, "I'm a married man. I've been married for 28 years. I have seven kids. Glad we're off the contraception discussion."


    You are drinking the kool aid if you think it's friendly fire. It's a media and Lib setup from the start and gullible folks fall for it.

    Surely you jest! There are folks on this very forum who refer to any republican who won't commit on civil unions, immigration, or abortion as a rino (and call me one too). The liberal media may revel in those issues, but if the candidates weren't taking heat from the "faithful" they would simply dodge those questions from the media.

    Sadly speaking the truth about personal responsibility will fall on many deaf ears for the vocal manipulative self serving Jessie Jackson-Al Sharpton types in the black community. Bill Cosby can attest to that

    Did anyone see the movie, Lincoln? It was after that, that I recalled what the Republican party had done for the black community. It was a very good movie. Not an action movie, but a refresher on history and government. I came out of that wondering how the Democratic party seemed to be the party of choice for the black community in recent years. Anyone know why the switch.

    Thanks Rich. Good video. I applaud the man.

    I suspect that it began with FDR's social programs, got a boost by JFK, and then really took off with LBJ's "Great Society" that pushed a very liberal social agenda.
