I hope he jumps in as well. I'm not sure about that split, many factions of the tea party have said they are committed to voting for whoever the republican nominee is so that we don't have 4 more years of BO. Of course, Ron Paul - who doesn't have a chance in Hades of winning - will do his best to split the party vote.

Yes, it will. I'm sure the Black Panther party will be intimidating voters again along with all the other "irregularities" the dems love to employ but SO many Americans have had it withBO's incompetence in restarting this economy that unless there is a big improvement by next summer, even their dirty tricks can't get him reelected.
