His parents were US citizens at the time of his birth, therefore he is of the realm.

WI Gov Scott Walker is my pick.

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.

If he were to win, he would be the first President since Truman not to have graduated from College.

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.

“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.

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!

Silly conservatives.

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?

Did she produce a Republican victory in NM in 2012? She won’t even carry her state in a presidential election.

I like Walker and fully expect his name to be tossed around plenty which will mean the media will have plenty of time to make him out to be a cannibal or some such nonsense.

I voted for Cruz. He talks a good game. Now we’ll see how he copes in DC over the next few years. Then we’ll know if he is fit for higher office.

‘I give you the man who’ will conserve the USA.

1] Insist on a formal declaration of war before force used
2] Fight against inflation
3] Produce what we consume.

I don’t see the candidate in sight in the GOP so I expect a 3rd party which will attract voters from both the bigs.

The problem with Walker is that it is unlikely he can carry his home state. In a 50/50 electorate a presidential candidate must at least be able to carry his own state and get its electoral votes...

Palin might win with one hand tied behind her back, but I’m not sure she could carry a 73-year-old Gingrich across the finish line.

I'm a big SP fan, but I can't see her running for POTUS until she retires the 'quitter' meme. The Begich(D) Senate seat in AK is up in 2014: the only reason why the late Ted Stevens lost that seat was a bogus 'Rat-instigated corruption charge which was eventually found to be unwarranted.

Sarah should run for that seat: it's an almost certain GOP pickup. And since the ethics rules are different for federal office, she wouldn't have to personally pick up the tab to defend against frivolous ethics complaints as she did when she was AK's governor. That would put the 'quitter' meme to rest for good, and set her up for a POTUS run in 2020 (if we're all still here ...).

Exactly... -or- Lindsey Graham.. which he would lose to Joe Bidens first term.. with the Hildebeast as VeeP.. and then after a couple months the Beast would have Biden snuffed by a crazed right wing protestor..

Republicans? Jeese.. you buy them books they eat the pages..

Sure... but it’ll be an otherwise token candidacy with a limited objective of fundraising for and helping down-ticket GOPers.

The tipping point has passed. Record numbers of welfare, food stamp and disability recipients, along with skyrocketing numbers of hispanics will keep the White House in the dems’ hands. That’s not going to change.

Oh, they'll go through the motions as the GOPe continues its longstanding practice of finding the next old guy to honor with a 6-month moment in the sunshine. The "media" will do their damnedest to give an appearance of closeness.

Then along will come November and, well... you know the rest.

You picked my top choice combination for ability and experience, but I'm looking for a second choice that is (1) electable in the primaries (Newt can't get the nomination even against as weak a candidate as Romney), (2) conservative (what's the point in electing a professional politician who wears a "GOP" jersey but doesn't believe in conservatism, such as Chris Christie?), and (3) willing (what's the point in hoping for Sarah unless and until she announces that she is willing?).
