As I type these words I’m watching the Republican debate on CNN. It is taking place in New Hampshire and there are some big names explaining their values and intentions tonight. There are seven podiums on the stage occupied by Michele Bachmann, Herman Cain, Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Tim Pawlenty, Mitt Romney, and Rick Santorum.

There are few words any of these seven individuals could possibly utter that would make less sense than the ideas Barack Obama has been contradicting American progress with for close to three years now. Any of these seven individuals have my vote for the simple fact that they all represent “Someone Else” as a single candidate. Regardless of their differences, they all collectively oppose Obama’s direction and many of the legislation he has enacted. In fact, it is quite possible that most of the actions Obama has made and will make for a sum of four entire years might, should one of these candidates defeat Obama, negate the next four years simply trying to reverse the damage that has been done. Eight lost years. Tack on four more years of Bush leaving an economical mess for Obama and we are up to maybe twelve years of elected presidents undoing each other’s actions over and over like a hamster in a very pricey wheel. They spend incomprehensible amounts of time and money contradicting every four years with four more years.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 13.9 million Americans were unemployed last month, 2.3 million more than when Barack Obama took office.

That fact is more stunning and more definitive than any of the intelligent alternatives the Republican candidates had to offer tonight. It is succinct and it speaks for itself when contrasted to how many tax dollars have been wasted since January of 2009, resulting in even more unemployment and an overwhelming amount of deficit.

Here's another one. "Shovel-ready was not as shovel-ready as we expected." All of these promises and expectations, all of the money we have invested into failure, when Barack Obama writes off his failures with a joke like that regarding jobs he had promised, which do not and never did exist, where is the progess in Progressivism?

Who is Someone Else going to be in 2012 and where do I get in line to vote?

1,227.8 miles to go.
