Speaking to the boat sales side of this topic, as someone who has been seriously shopping for a gofast the last 5 or so months, I'd say boat sales (at least for gofasts) are NOT up by any means. I've seen the same boats listed for sale for quite some time now. I understand it's hard for people to sell their boat for much less than what they think its worth, especially when a lot of them paid top dollar when the market was much stronger. But if they think they'll just wait out the market until it recovers, well I think they're going to be waiting for a very long, long time.

"...I have been in an Obama holding pattern since 2008 and have no thoughts of changing my plans until he is replaced with a true conservative..." baywatch


Who on the Republican Ship of Fools do you think can defeat Obama? I see him winning by 15 points against any of them.

For what its worth ( Not much because they ALL are crooks} Obama had the house and the Senate for 2 years
Didnr even get a budget out of that crew, much less any jobs
The Republicans filibustered every jobs bill from the time he took office in 2008 till now. When they took over the House last year they all ran on the "where are the jobs" rant.

Since then until now the Republicans have not passed ONE jobs bill out of the House, but they HAVE concentrated on abortion and cutting the taxes of the 1%, neither of which creates jobs.

Jobs are created in the Private sector not Government !!!!! between that Blue lipped Saul Alinski, money wasting conman and his affirmative action priestess at the unconstitutional EPA that well has been poisoned, with this latest batch of 4000+ pages of regulation, Jobs will be created the DAY they are out of a JOB

15 points is pretty strong but the crop of nim-witts out there now don't have a chance to beat him. I think the average person see's that the republicans are more worried about making Obama look bad than doing the right thing.

Next thing you know, Trump will enter the fray. If that happens, I'd bet he'll lose by more than 15. Is there a bigger puke on this earth?

I'm a Republican, and I don't think any of them have a chance. Honestly, these guys are the best our whole ****ing country could do? It's a joke really.

Ron Paul is the only one I actually trust (and I don't agree with him on a LOT of issues), and I don't want to vote for him. But honestly, if you think Obama can't get anything done, could you imagine Ron Paul trying to get something through the House and the Senate, good friggin' luck...

It's funny how the media will crucify one candidate for marital indiscretions, and one who is known for it is the front runner. Honestly I don't even know why I vote anymore.

I agree Big Daddy. That is why I am doing some planning.

Catman, as far as a repub is cocerned I don't think we have a prayer of getting a "true conservative." Since the progessive movement started the republican party has been hijacked and because of that I just wish the libertarian party had a legitament player that could compete for the presidency in a national election.
