In comments below name the republican candidate that you would be willing to vote for in the 2012 election instead of Barack Obama.

If you can’t name one then you are wasting your time complaining about him, he will do what he wants when and if he is ready to do it.

Update: No comments yet? Prepare the Kevin Bacon Position!

Update 2: Tengrain answers

Since Rich has finished his last story and hasn’t started his next story yet and we need a change of pace to get my mind off of all of the stupid stuff we’ve had to deal with today.

So lets have a fun poll that has (almost) nothing political about it:

The Ron Paul thing BTW is a running gag and the only thing from Charles worth emulating these days

There are many times when Professor Darren Hutchenson drives me nuts. We are on polar opposites of the political spectrum and many times when I think he is dead wrong, but even so I wish more members of the progressive left were like him for reasons such as this:

Fifth, I am a proud member of the Internet Left Fringe (if that means “progressive critic of Obama”), but I never put much stock in the sweeping liberal rhetoric that surrounded Obama’s election. I agreed with Hillary Clinton who said that “you campaign in poetry but govern in prose.” I said a long time ago that the liberal euphoria surrounding Obama’s candidacy was misguided and that Obama was going to govern from the center because the country was politically divided and that he was a moderate — at best.

Read the whole post, his previous two are solid as well.

I would take issue that he is a moderate, I think he is more of an opportunist. I think Obama likely agrees with Professor Hutchenson on the issues but his primary belief system is the political and economic advancement of Barack Obama. Of course it is possible that he has never believed in any of this progressive stuff and has simply used it to get ahead. That would explain 20 years in the Wright pew without hearing anything.

There are not a lot of left blogs that I have on my blogroll. Hutchenson is one of them and I’m pleased and proud to link him here.

A: Both shut down those who question them.

Oh well.

Al Gore the same month:

At a conference of environmental journalists, however, he briefly deigned to answer questions. The journalist who directed Not Evil, Just Wrong, a documentary that criticizes Gore’s alarmism, took advantage of the opportunity to ask Gore about the British judge who found that there were at least nine scientific errors in Gore’s film. The exchange is pretty entertaining; it ends with the journalist’s microphone being cut off:

When your opinions can stand up on their own, you aren’t obsessed with criticism. That would also explain this.
