Please, GOP, give me a choice. Last time I wanted to vote for McCain but could not stand Palin. With all the infighting things don't look promising. I will probably again have to vote for O. Bummer!

bizsmith: "Please, GOP, give me a choice." Your choice is simple, no matter who the nominee. The intransigence of the GOP or pro-middle class, pro-equality positions of the Democratic Party.

"But Gingrich backer Shirley Dick of Urbandale said that should not be the litmus test for evangelical Christians. "Part of what we believe is forgiveness,'' she said." - Well then, miss prissy pants, please forgive Obama who HAS NO SEXUAL SKELETONS in the closet and vote for him.

This is a false endorsement of course. The Des Moines Register's editorial board is an extremely Liberal and activist entity. They also endorse gay marriage and a whole host of other reprehensible issues. By endorsing Gingrich they've telegraphed who the Liberals want Obama to go up against.

"The Des Moines Register's editorial board is an extremely Liberal and activist entity....By endorsing Gingrich they've telegraphed who the Liberals want Obama to go up against." .... they endorsed Romney.

Moderates are considered liberal by right wingers, so, in 2012 the people will have their choice between a Massachusetts liberal or a Chicago liberal. Not a bad place to be if your a moderate liberal. No doubt Romney will be the nominee, just follow the money and Romney has it. Sorry conservatives, you have no horse in the upcoming race.

If the GOP had a more charismatic candidate who actually believed in smaller government, he would be the star people are looking for. The current crop are all either fundamentalists or conservative-lite. The only candidate to espouse smaller government is not charismatic enough the catch the eye of the media -- Ron Paul.

Ha ha, this debate should be Bachmann's last. She did attract a lot of attention in this last debate -- for her fake long fingernails that clicked and clacked against her podium. Even the Washington Post commented on those, shudder, fingernails. I've written a few comments about these talons in the past but the Strib always censored these comments. Apparently they thought it wasn't appropriate for me to comment on these distasteful nails. Maybe now that the talons are drawing nasty comments from even the largest and most respected news outlets, the Strib will finally ask, "Should a president have talons and pencil eyebrows?" Ugh. I still can't understand how Bachmann gets elected to Congress.
