I think it will be Jeb Bush because he is a successful former Governor of a state with no income tax, he speaks fluent Spanish and latinos love him, and he is an intellectual heavyweight.
Who do you think it will be?
God, let’s hope not. No more Bushes, Clintons, Kennedys, et al. No way.
My choice is Mike Pence.
Jeb has too much baggage - mainly his brother. Unelectable.
It is far too early to tell, but Jeb has indicated he doesn’t want it and has mostly stayed out of personal politics since his governor days. (he has done some work for Rubio and Brownback recently).
Personally, although there are a lot of people I like, I have a feeling that we may get a dark horse candidate.
If I was betting money it will be Pence, but with my heart I hope for Sarah Palin.
Maybe we will get both I think.
Don’t know who will be up front though.
My worst fear is Romney.
Pence/Palin would be my choice. People are fried with the Bush’s.
Bush and intellectual heavyweight in the same sentence ? lmao !
I’m sick of the Bushes. Both Bush betrayed us. First Bush increased taxes. 2nd Bush tried to destroy capitalism in order to save it
Jan Brewer/Chris Christie
I think it will be and should be a republican governor like Pawlenty, Barbour, or Daniels. I think Sarah is doing just fine in her current role.
Paul Ryan would be great, but he has already said he won;t run because his family is young. I don’t blame him one bit. Family life when you’re a Congressman has to be bad enough, putting your kids in a position to live in the WH should be considered child abuse.
Welcome to FR n00bie
What has Jeb Bush to offer conservatives ???
Is he hoping to be the president of illegal aliens or American citizens ???
I think it will be Jefferson Liberal because he has demonstrated the kind of ignoring the rules that people really love!
I think Rick Perry has a better chance than Jeb. Unfortunately, the Bush name carries a lot of baggage at this point.
If I had to make a guess now, I’d likely go with some combination of Palin and Perry.
There is a fierce anti-establishment wave out there and represents the GOP establishment like no other candidate. I like him, but the timing is not right.
If a Yale & Harvard grad isn't an intellectual heavyweight, who is?
Good man . I’d add DeMint and Michele Bachmann /
Perry? No thanks, I want to win.
