Who will be the GOP nominee for president in 2012?

Posted on 09/22/2010 6:10:09 AM PDT by Jefferson Liberal

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.

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.

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

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.

Jeb Bush has already announced he will NOT run. So has Jim Demint and Chris Christie and Paul Ryan.

Either Sarah Palin or Mitt Romney will be the nominee unless one of them does not run, but if both run nobody else has a chance to pick up the nomination.

I think it will be Haley Barbour. Being the chairman of the RNC and Republican Governor’s association, he has the contacts and ability to raise a lot of money. As governor of Mississippi he has proven to be a conservative stalwart and while things were falling apart in New Orleans, the place were Hurrican Katrina actually hit was Mississippi. He did a magnificent job during that crisis.

He has the ability to unite the tea party with the conservative establishment and I would love to see him debate “The One”...

Looks like we have another noobie liberal trying to pick our candidates for us again. He knows Bush wouldn't get 10 votes, which is why he is cheerleading for him.

"Jefferson liberal" is just that...a liberal.

Let this be the last reply to his post...thanks.

As I start typing and to answer your question of who, I definitely do not have a clue as to who the nominee will be. The ball, for who, is in the people's hands. On prior post I have to agree, and I too would hope another Bush is not the nominee. That said, I do not as of this moment have a nominee in mind, although from a prior post, I too like Mike. But with that typed (said) and the midterms coming quickly, I shall concentrate my thoughts toward said midterms. Could you get back to me later?

Yes, Jeb Bush is a frontliner, making himself clearly visible against the Obama admin on a daily basis, and he is essentially the leader of the republican party, so your prediction that he will take the obvious next step and run for president on this tidal of support for him only makes perfect sense.

Let us not forget that Mr. Bush finished his postgraduate work at the bottom 10% of his class. So he got through it, tough to be booted out.

Daniels is a good man no doubt. I like Haley better because he was a proven fundraiser while at the RNC and we’re going to need someone who has the contacts and ability to raise a lot of money against “The One”. If Daniels were the nominee I would have no problem with that. He has a great record to run on. I love what his nickname was while director at OMB, “The Blade”. Just the kind of guy we need. One who knows how to “cut” a budget...

And the national press said almost nothing about it! Typical.
