    Ughhh...I cannot wait 'til 2012 is OVER and DONE !! I am SO SICK and TIRED of the "Ringling Bro.'s Barnum and Bailey Circus" that the news media refers to as the "race to the Republican presidential nomination." Who really cares? These damned politicians are all good-for-nothing anyway, and nothing ever gets accomplished in favor of middle-class America. All I hear is a heckuva lot of bickering between the Dem.'s and GOP, while the rest of us are left hanging on a clothes line.

    The Republican field of candidates have one thing in common.They have all flip-flopped on our major issues concerning our country.Obama has never flip-flopped on our national agenda.We will vote for him in 2012.
