Anybody home? by Occams

This site has become too homogenious. We can’t even disagree about the least worst Republican…..

Where are the Trolls?

RE: Anybody home? by VnutZ

Well, I’d say the only thing “wrong” with Romney as far as voters are concerned compared to the others is his religion and ability to relate with the common man. He doesn’t seem marred by scandal [Gingrich] or whack-job societal opinions [Santorum].

Life caught up with me … haven’t been able to post anything for awhile.

Agreed for them, but for me he has a total lack of charisma and leadership style. He voices all the standard conservative guff so as to harness his unsophisticated voter base, but without giving any sense that he has opinions of his own, or that he really understands what he is talking about.

He is a totally uninspiring, boring, vanilla candidate. A hint of scandal or societal opinion from him would make him more interesting. Perhaps they are the characteristics required to make him a respected Mormon and successful in his field of investment business – seriously.

Some might assume that this makes him an ideal conservative prospect, totally predictable and unlikely to introduce radical change, but I fear that such a blank canvas would be written upon by the extremists of the far right.

The USA does not need a preacher or a merchant wanker, but a statesman leader who has a vision we want, and the drive to take us there. If this guy has any vision at all it seems to be up his ass.

Nevertheless, he is still the least worst Republican candidate. He helps me to understand why those voters think that Reagan was a good president.

At this point, the race between those three is pointless. Not a one of them stands a snowball’s chance of winning against Obama. Hell, at this point I’ll probably end up voting for Obama because he’s guaranteed only 4 more years. I can’t accept being stuck with one of them for a possible eight.

Oddly enough, Ron Paul (who could never win the Republican ticket unless these three all died in freak shaving accidents) did better against Obama than any of these guys. If I had to guess, I’d say he appeals better to the middle 60% of us.

middle 60 is based off of the rough (instantaneously rectally extracted) model

  • 5% insane right
  • 15% right
  • 60% middle (from moderate right to moderate left)
  • 15% left
  • 5% insane left
