Why not Ron Paul?
 
I'm convinced Ron Paul is the only guy who can beat Obama. He gives it to you straight and he definately knows his shit. Hell, he predicted a lot of the problems we are going through right now. Yet, I feel like some people aren't sold on him for whatever reason...too libertarian I guess?

I will say that Ron Paul is the best thing the Republicans have.

He is not, however, the one with the best chance to beat Obama. Not by a long shot, because Ron Paul has very little chance of beating Obama.

Romney has the best, only chance of this crop, and he is the certain nominee.

See here's how I see it:

Cain: That Muslim hating question is gonna kill him
Bachmann: Just seems like she's insane
Romney: Flip floppy and a closet liberal
Gingrich: No chance

The other guys, no one knows who they are, they're boring and have no shot.

You nailed it.

Although...his popularity now is far, far higher than it was in '08.

I think that extreme recession are making people look at candidates different from the same old, same old.

We will see.

P.S. Stop playing that vastly overrated game, FF VII.

Play Rift.

Ron Paul was wildly popular in straw polls in 2008. He won pretty much all of them. Then, when actual voting started, nobody was voting for him.

Romney had this thing wrapped up the minute Huckabee decided not to run.

All he has to do now is to not look crazy, and that's what he did last night.

Don't under-estimate Bachman.

This isn't 2008.

Republicans and independants don;t want another RHINO. Such a candidate won't make it.

Romney won't make it in 2012.

You can quote me on that.

Some of my work buddies were playing Rift. I've heard only good things about it. My next MMO is going to be SW: The Old Republic. I wanna get my hands on Witcher 2, Skyrim and Mass Effect 3...seems to be a good year for RPGs.

...and I will gladly quote you on that.

The only way to kill the tea party is a turnaround in the economy.

Ain't happenin'.

Next 2 years are good.

GW2 interests me because there is no subscription fee, and it looks to be very PVP driven....which is pretty much the only reason I play these games.

And yes, Rift is very good...graphics are outstanding, class system is the best I have ever seen.

It is also well supported, the Devs work their butts off.

I actually played the first GW and really enjoyed it. Maybe I'll give it a try when it comes out.
