Being an independent voter, I can honestly say I have never voted a straight ticket. It's hard for diehards of either party not to vote a straight ticket. People like George Wills or Cal Thomas and many others who beat the drums for a bunch of losers.
Mitt Romney: reminds me of a failed used car salesman.
Rick Santorum: never got any discipline when he was a kid, and it shows. That's why he got stomped out when he was in office before.
Newt Gingrich: he is a dinsosaur. He had his day. Now he's waiting for a miracle.
Ron Paul: he's a nice ole guy with lots of time on his hands and some good sense. But he's a little too old.
Other than that, they are all making Prez. Obama look good.
Thanks and "Semper Fi"
