George Romney

In 1964 George Romney refused to endorse Barry Goldwater for president.  He stated:

“dogmatic ideological parties tend to splinter the political and social fabric of a nation, lead to governmental crises and deadlocks, and stymie the compromises so often necessary to preserve freedom and achieve progress.”

If Romney were alive today, he might make a good candidate for president; for the Democrats.

    Hopefully, the final debate will be held this week in Mesa, AZ. PLEASE!!!!!!

  2. Talk about other people who aren’t as good as the old man:

    Is Franklin Graham one d.u.m.b. SOB or what?

    This is about the third time he’s tripped over his tongue. One nation under Jesus, indeed.

      Sra Dog,
      According to the Bible, Franklin Graham is the anti-Christ.

        Today is Ash Wednesday. Devout, and some not so devout, Catholics go to Mass in the morning. The priest will put ashes in the form of a cross on parishioners foreheads, which they wear all day.

        It’ll be interesting to see if the two Catholics in tonight’s Republican debate are so inclined.

          Some say that the weak Republican field will result in President Obama’s reelection. Other’s, like myself, say this is why he’ll win reelection:

  3. Anyone else going to watch the repugs argue about who’s the best Christian tonight?

  4. No stomach for it. Studiously avoided.

    How is everyone out there today?

    It’s likely to hit 70 degrees in Virginia today.

    Great weather for protesting at the state capitol, if women (and other sentient folk) are still doing that …

    I watched it because it was local. I liked Ron Paul because he is entertaining and honest. It’s hard to imagine that these grown men don’t seem to be aware that video clips are available to many TV anchors that show how hypocritical they are. GOP should change their name to Flip-Floppers Inc. I’m glad I left the C. church if Rick is a shining example. Mitt tried too hard to utter a sentence. Newt is just a general pain in the ass.

    It’s beautiful in AZ – as well as other parts of the country. Winter never quite made it this year. Must have something to do with that thing they call “Climate Change.” Good week for spring training to begin. Sorry all of you will have to undergo Day Light Savings time change in a couple of weeks. That’s one of the only sane things that AZ tried and decided wasn’t worth it.

    Dog – “sentient” good word for something that some of the male species lack.
