    Doomsday Poll – Who would cause you to stay home or vote for Obama?

    Doomsday Poll – Who would cause you to stay home or vote for Obama?

    Following up on my post this morning regarding whether conservatives and libertarians would stay home or support Obama if Newt were the Republican nominee, I wonder which if any of the other candidates generates such feelings.

    So, here is the Doomsday Poll, in two parts.  First, which of the candidates, if nominated, definitely/likely would cause you to stay home or vote for Obama.  Second, which of the candidates, if nominated, possibly would cause you to stay home or vote for Obama.

    The polls will be open until noon (Eastern) on Wednesday.

    Anyone who is prepared to vote Obama if one of their acceptable Republican candidates is not nominated needs a wake up call. Who do you want selecting the next 2 or 3 Supreme Court justices? Who do you want appointing regulators to EPA and HHS? Who do you want receiving the Obamacare repeal bill? Who do you want negotiating with Congress on whether to balance the budget, reform entitlements, and revamp the tax code? Santorum, Paul, Bachmann, Perry, Huntsman, Romney, Gingrich, any of them will move us in the right direction. Obama will continue to lead us off the cliff. So your worst case is Iran gets a nuclear weapon and President Paul doesn’t immediately attack them? Are you so sure President Obama would? (or any sane president?) We can survive 4 years of scaling back as world policeman. Can we survive a new multi-decade liberal Supreme Court majority, Obamacare becoming entrenched, a huge permanent tax hike, ballooning spending, and continuing trillion-dollar annual deficits?

      Valleyforge:

      You summed it up nicely.

      “Can we survive a new multi-decade liberal Supreme Court majority, Obamacare becoming entrenched, a huge permanent tax hike, ballooning spending, and continuing trillion-dollar annual deficits?”

      the answer is a resounding NO!

      Not sure we haven’t already passed the point of no return, but we can’t give up. In 1777, The Continental Army camped at Valley Forge did not give up and went on to Victory.

        so what youre saying is that what we really need is fewer Ron Paul supporters, least he get this foolish idea he has enough support to win and run as a third party (again) risking our chance to get rid of the worst President we have seen since the last time he did just that…

        I find it ironic that Paul tried to split Republican Votes in the Regan/Carter election and is now a real threat to do it again against Obama. (I guess History really does repeat itself…)

          Maybe, that’s what I’m saying.

          But, primarily, I’m hoping Ron Paul has the good sense not to run third party. I’m being repetitive, but:

          1992 election
          Bush the Elder – 37% of the votes cast
          Ross Perot – 19% of the votes cast
          Bill Clinton – 43% of votes cast

          And look what that got us.

          If he runs, he will take the vote of his loyal Ron Paul supporters and Obama will win another term – if there is an election, at all.

          All the issues cited below will be the least of our worries if we allow hostile governments to run amok, because, ultimately, we are the target of all the nuclear wannabes.

          “…multi-decade liberal Supreme Court majority, Obamacare becoming entrenched, a huge permanent tax hike, ballooning spending, and continuing trillion-dollar annual deficits.”

    It’s soooo predictable — the Paul-ine Kaels reach back decades to lash at Newt, Romney, Bush, and others, but when it comes to what Paul was doing when The Ron Paul Political Report was speaking to its subscribers in terms barely tolerable even in that era, that’s “old hat.”

    Whatta crock! Even taking him at face value, aren’t you even interested in knowing who wrote that stuff if Paul did not? Don’t you want to know how the man who wants to be the Commander-in-Chief literally lost control of his own message? Apparently you don’t, because he answered none of those questions in the Blitzer interview!

    Ron Paul is a right-of-center version of Dennis Kucinich; a fascinating zealot who is harmless as long as he is powerless, but that well-informed people agree shouldn’t be allowed access to the long knives.
