Skip to comments.My pick for the non-GOP-e Nomination for 2016...
Posted on 11/28/2012 8:27:22 AM PST by US Navy Vet
...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?
She needs him for the experience he has
‘How about Scott Walker/Susanna Martinez?’
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 want this guy: Virtual President Bill Whittle
I agree, remember Cruz has already “Killed-Off” one RINO/GOP-e in Dewhurst!
Bill Whittle would make an OUTSTANDING Press Secretary in a non-GOP-e Republican Administration!
Scott Walker and I also like Rand Paul. But I’m thinking it won’t matter because once again we will be running against the democrat media.
My toaster and my coffee maker. Bound to be better and less damaging than whoever we end up getting.
‘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.
She needs him for the experience he has.”
Palin might need Gingrich. The rest of the country doesn't.
You had better put Susanna Martinez on the ticket, as we are likely to be up against Hillary.
“Susanna Martinez” = PURE Open Borders and 100% “Amnesty” In MY view NOT Qualified!
“Palin/Gingrich”, UHHH, NO!
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.
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 ...).
Indeed Reid&pals will make surt election rules will be changed even more by then.
Free brown shirts to ensue.
I’m fine with them. Go Ryan.
[ 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? ]
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..
VOTING DIED on Nov. 6th.. Duuuuugh!..
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?).
If you still intend to back ANY GOP candidate ever again, you’re crazy! I will never again vote. Want my reasons? The GOP, all Republican politicians, Dole, McCain, Romney. No more money, no more votes. It’s finished. The country is finished. Never again! Never!!
So just WHAT do YOU plan to do, crawl under a Rock, WHAT?
My example for the hard times ahead:
(if we’re all still here ...)
No worries. Skynet will save us. Oh wait a minute.....
Is my pick
And I'm a man but we need a female or minority as the media wants us to run a white male against their communist democrat.
