...Scott Walker/Ted Cruz
Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta.
Chuck Norris/Chuck Norris’ Mustache, 2016
Voting Died Nov.. 2012...
Does THAT really matter anymore?
His parents were US citizens at the time of his birth, therefore he is of the realm.
1) He's a fighter. He defeated the WI public employee unions in a really nasty battle. He did not back down, compromise, or run away.
2) If he had any skeletons in his closet, the ugly recall election would have brought them out.
Scott Walker’s an impressive guy, though a bit of a union lightning rod at this point.
Ted Cruz would have zero executive experience and be a bit of a social conservatism lightning rod to try to take nationally.
I think I’d like Walker as a VP candidate, whereby the union issue is brought in from the side, rather than offering a direct hit, and he can get national and international experience to run on his own after serving as VP.
Cruz I think would need some seasoning as governor of Texas to diversify his portfolio before putting him on a national ticket.
But two good men for the conservative movement, for sure.
Who the heck cares?
There will be one name on the ballot in 2016, if there is an election, and that name will be pre-marked for the voter’s convenience.
Rand Paul, Pres. and Paul Ryan, VP
(you heard it here first!)
What makes you think we will have a presidential election in 2016?
“Ted Cruz was born in Calgary, Alberta.”
His parents were US citizens so he’s a US citizen.
It would be like your American citizen pregnant mother and father took a trip to Mexico for shopping and her baby, you, came while she was in Mexico. That wouldn’t stop you from being president.
Ha! Apparently a whole lot of things don’t matter anymore.
The whole book was thrown out the window in the last two national elections!!
How about Scott Walker/Susanna Martinez?
I can’t help but chuckle...
Oh, just like illegals popping out their anchor babies on this side of the border are still Mexican citizens?
Yeah, let’s give them a head start in tearing our heros down, like they did Sarah.
A moot discussion! Either, the left uses voter fraud, yet again, to win; amnesty for illegal immigrants happens, again, and with that, many more pro-leftist voters are added to the total voter rolls; leftist activist judges continue to abuse their judicial powers; Conservatives/conservatism continue to be suppressed by a variety of leftist entities; BO runs again for a third term; the November ‘16 general election is postponed, for a finite number of, possible, reasons (excuses); BO, officially, becomes dictator for life; or a combination of all of the above happens. The GOP is on the way out as a viable political opponent, and the sooner that conservatives can, successfully, work together as “one political entity”, the better it will be for the political right, both, in the U.S. and worldwide. But, the political right must make this, really, happen, as soon as possible and successfully! Anything else, and the left wins, for the long-term!
If an election is held in 2016, the GOP candidate will be Jeb Bush. It's his turn, after all. Haven't you been paying attention?
