Someone elighten me

is the GOP's strategy really just to find someone that can beat Obama, or just to find the best candidate for the presidency? Because right now, from what I'm seeing, they're only looking for someone that can beat Obama in the election. And that bothers me greatly.

If the person can't beat Obama.....then the rest is meaningless.

Why would they want to nominate someone who could not beat Obama?

They want to beat Obama so bad they will elect a left leaning Massachusetts governor who invented the American version of government health care to do it!

The GOP strategy appears to be split 3 ways right now: social conservative, libertarian, and electable.

If the GOP's strategy was to find someone that could beat Obama, they would be hailing Ron Paul, especially being he's the only candidate (on either side of the aisle) whose views differ from Obama. However, the GOP and the establishment political system in general are most concerned with continuing the status quo, which would be fulfilled by anyone not named Paul. Obama, Romney, Santorum, Perry, Gingrich, etc, all represent the same corporate and geopolitical interests.

Yeah he was really an entitled kid growing up, unlike Romney. Apartment living, constant moving, a missing father...that really was a sweet deal unlike Romney, who had to endure being the son of a rich businessman and successful politician all his life.

Obama worked as a teenager at Baskin Robbins, but they probably only paid him in ice cream to make sure he had no clue what earning a dollar felt like.

The best CWG can do as far as Obama having a real job is a summer gig he took as a teenager working at Baskin Robbins.

If thats the case thats extremely unfortunate, being his view on foreign policy is the correct one to have. Guess it just goes to show how accepted war mongering and a barbarian frame of mind has become. In all reality though, Paul's foreign policy view is up there as one of the strongest views he has, along with ending the Fed and the war on Drugs.
