Frist as President?... Hmmmm... ONLY if Pee Wee Herman is Press Secretary...
Rudy will have a hell of a time winning the GOP's primary
One can only hope so. The more important question is which of all the other clowns on the current list will be nominated.
I can't think of a single one who would be anything more than the "lesser of two evils" type candidates they have put up in the past.
I live for the day I can actually vote FOR someone.
didn't he vote to give amnesty to illegals and also to give them government checks? No thank you.
The man is a spineless wimp of the 1st order...I like a better handle for him Senator "Limp Wrist"
How did Frist do on the FR popularity poll? Not all that well IIRC.
i CANNOT believe that hindraker of powerline published this #@$#@$. It almost seems like a satire piece. I suspect hindraker got stars in his eyes when he met him and thats why he wrote this piece. Frist might have a good resume, but he's a weak leader. If it comes down to allen and frist as the conservative alternative allen will squash frist.
A candidate meeting your criteria will be a ways off.
I can think of several that I would like to see run that I think could win the GOP nod, but probably won't. The best of the bunch would be Jeff Sessions. James Inhofe and Sam Brownback are also good. In the house, Mike Pence and JD Heyworth come to mind.
And any of these guys would take out McCain or Rudy, IMO. There will definitely be a conservative in the race and its better for him not to announce yet anyway.
Frist, unfortunately one of my 2 CINO Senators, has a backbone of jelly, a NumbersUSA immigration report card of D-, and a speech delivery that makes George Bush sound silver-tongued.
If you're desparately wanting to have a conservative in the White House for a change, stay away from Frist.
Probably never. I favor a candidate who believes in the constitution and will sacrifice his/her career and even his/her life to defend it.
I know of no liberal or conservative, Republican or Democrat who is willing to do that, or even wants to.
There is your golden opprotunity to run for office.
I don't need to be formally rejected to know my ideas are going to be rejected.
No one who believes in what I do, and would actually do it, could ever be elected in America today.
Sufficient numbers of people do not value the Constitution, freedom, small government, or individual responsibility. In fact, very few do anymore.
Conservatives cannot leave people alone and neither can liberals.
I hear that the tibes of southern Chad are pretty much autonomous from gov't interference. Give that a shot. LOL
That isn't the goal.
Government is necessary, and proper. It is the role it takes that is debatable.
Government is necessary to defend the rights of the citizens. That doesn't happen in places like Chad.
Doesn't this rate a 'Weenie Alert' or something?
I would inititally settle for a candidate who would actually shrink the size of government and eliminate programs. In short, someone or some party that would actually go in the right direction.
We are going the wrong way and can never achieve the goal by going away from it.
You hit a key point. The role of gov't is debatable. In order to advance your ideas, win the argument and get your way, you need to be clear and concise and persuasive. If you think that the rest of humanity is just too stupid to be reasoned with, you will have lost all hope of influence.
