Well, Bob, I may not demand purity, but I will demand a conservative. A conservative is something Chris Cristie is not and never has been.
I’ll also tell you what since I’m up on the soapbox. The GOP-E told us all that after McCain we had to run a Republican from the Northeast to have any chance of winning. Well, his name was Mitt Romney and while he may have been a Republican he was not demonstrably a conservative in any sense of the word, nor was he a capable campaigner outside of New England, which really didn’t do him any good.
Now that the same GOP-E wants to push a man who is “not nice” to go along with not conservative. They’ll be lucky to hold Alabama if they do and will deserve the loss if they don’t.
The next Republican Presidential candidate needs to be the sort that will campaign against the incestous corruption in Washington, D.C. and has the credentials to back their claim that they’ll clean house. They need to present problems clearly and articulate answers that will work. They must fundamentally believe in America and be able to stir Americans to believe in their country. Right now, only one person that might fill that role is anywhere to be seen. Bloodied and Battered but still standing and still fighting.
That person sure isn’t Cristie.
Who is your pick for 2016? I know it is early, but I am sure you have given it at least a passing thought. So, elucidate me and others here on who are at top of your list. I know it is not Christie.
My list has McConnell, Scott, Rubio.
