Generally liberal on social issues. I also don't HATE Obama care, although I think there are some things in there that may be irresponsible. The healthcare system was broken and needed to be fixed. I can see arguments both ways on Obama care, but its not like the republicans have a reasonable solution. They would just go back to the way it was, leaving 72 million people uninsured. Romney's "Emergency Room" plan is far more unreasonable than Obama care, and immoral I might add.
But yeah, go ahead and disregard the moderate candidates in your party as having "no chance." You know, the ones that believe in science, or are religious but not willing to push their beliefs on others. Honestly, the whole "this candidate couldn't beat Obama" thing is quite funny, when looking at the candidates that the GOP nominates.
The people you guys take seriously as possible candidates is damn scary. Gingrich, Bachman, Palin, Santorum, Rick Perry. Seriously?
But when Ron Paul or Huntsman want to get their names in there, they are "loony" and "can't defeat Obama?"
Or maybe you mean Huntsman isn't qualified because he can't buy his way to the presidency? If Huntsman got nominated by the GOP he would pull far more women and independents than Romney will. Assuming the GOP stood behind him, I really don't understand how he couldn't beat Obama. But he's just not extreme enough for the GOP. He probably doesn't have enough hate flowing for Obama, and might be too bipartisan for your party.
But yeah, I'm totally pretending that I would vote for Huntsman over Obama. Because everything is a conspiracy theory these days am I right? Obama is a Muslim, the last jobs report was rigged, the media is liberal, evolution and global warming are evil schemes by the government etc.
