    I think there is one person on the right who is very thankful Obama was elected. That person would be GW Bush.

    GW looks like a great leader and skillful politician in comparison and now will be judged with respect and admiration when compared to Mr Disaster Obama.

    Mr. Houdack, spoken like a true liberal. Pooh pooh anything and everything that doesn't fit neatly in your little liberal box. Take a look at the current White House Occupant before you accuse anybody of being laughable and a misfit.

    Unfortunately for both political pundits Heath and Kinderman, there is no good choice available to voters on the Republican ticket. They did manage to jettison another laughable misfit today in the person of Michele Bachmann (after happily dodging the Cain bullet a few weeks ago), but sadly they are left with the Hobson's choices of Santorum, Perry, Romney, Paul and whatever human train wrecks remain in the Great Conservative Race to the Bottom.

    There is no one in the race worth voting for - it is almost as if it was poorly scripted for a crummy movie. Are Conservatives even serious with this line up?

    Mr. Heath, I'm not quite sure who you're trying to impress here; or what you might have up your sleeve for your next installment. Out of one side of your pen (or keyboard) you claim that Mr. Obama is a "pretty cool guy," while in the very next paragraph you admit that you don't trust him and have lost faith in him because of his failure to come through on his campaign promises. There’s nothing “cool” about Barack Obama.

    A real conservative can't have it both ways, Mr. Heath. I hope you're not trying to ward off the barrage of negative comments here by placating those who actually think Obama is a good and decent man. Well, he's not. As far as those promises are concerned, I wonder just which one of them you're sorry he didn't follow through on. If my memory serves me well at all, there was very little in the way of substance during the 2008 election that had Obama winning the hearts and souls of just enough to give him residence at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The only thing I do remember him promising was that he would "change" the United States of America. On Inauguration Day 2009 I got my first real glimpse as to what that meant, and it sure wasn't pretty to me at all. From there it went downhill at near light speed.

    You claim that Obama has failed “with almost everything he has tried to do.” Oh how I wish that were only true, Mr. Heath. Sadly, he’s right on target with his dream of a transformed America through the eyes and words of his hero Saul Alinsky. And with that “list of embarrassing GOP presidential contenders” he’s more than likely going to have an additional four years to carry out that nightmare.

    Like it or not Mr. Heath, we’re a nation of two political parties. A third-party attempt only serves the ideological left as we should remember from past campaigns where the result may have been more to our liking if it hadn’t been for Ross Perot. And if this bad-mouthing of the Republican contenders doesn’t stop before the election has barely begun, and we get someone like Ron Paul to divert precious votes from whoever is nominated in the Republican convention, we’re going to be in very big trouble – much worse than where we are today.

    Unfortunately, the election of 2012 must be waged more against the incumbent rather than for whoever wins the Republican nomination. Sad as that is, it’s the truth. So please try to not worry so much about those who are going to criticize you anyway and get behind whoever it might be that will have the best chance of sending Mr. Obama back to Illinois or wherever he might do the least amount of damage for the rest of his life. We cannot risk another four years on this “pretty cool guy.”
