Running from the Governor’s mansion is better than trying to run from the House. I love you, Mike...and I’ll vote for ya too.

Oh really? I had a lively discussion last month saying that he was the odds on bet for a male candidate.

So I guess the behind the scenes blue blood society will now groom Huckabee?

Good. We need to rally around ONE conservative or else a liberal will get the nod.

I won't let you leave out Palin. You are deluding yourself if you think she isn't at least a potential candidate.

A fairly conservative Governor Pence in Indiana is fine with me;a President ought to have some management experience.

Good. I like Mike Pence, and I think this is best for him. The country needs strong conservative leaders at the state level, and Pence needs more experience and exposure before he should consider running at the national level.

A lot of good politicians have wrecked their careers by letting themselves be persuaded to move ahead too soon.

It’s going to be interesting to see how DeMint reads this field. He’s left the door open although at this time it sounds like he’s leaning against a run.

“You are deluding yourself if you think she isn't at least a potential candidate.”

Pissant always deludes himself. You can't be a member of a make-believe political party, attend make-believe conventions and think Duncan “Yo-yo” Hunter is going to be President and not be delusional.

Gotta get back to work. Someone has to pay for Pissant’s Medicaid and prescription drugs.

Mitch Daniels is a good conservative and he was just re-elected (I think) so Pence has a bit of a wait to run. Daniels may be term limited.

DeMint is the only viable one in the bunch, pissant, and it's not clear at all that he's even interested.

This ABBP campaign of yours is getting tired, trotting out complete neophytes and touting them in some spiteful attempt at creating buzz for anyone other than Palin.

Good luck, you've done such a fine job for Duncan Hunter and the Falcon Party.

Which is why the’ll groom him. He’s a loser from the word go, much like the candidate groomed by the establishment in 2008.

There are about 2 dozen wannabes on the GOP side that have been sending up trial balloons.

We will see at least a dozen starters and maybe even closer to 18. Once the first candidate announces, others will jump in within a few weeks.

A few will try to enter later. Many will be forced out by Super Tuesday, if not before, due to a lack of campaign cash.

Not long after Super Tuesday, we will probably see a couple of candidates who are way ahead, and 2-3 hangers-on.

DeMint on prez run: 'No'

CNN Anchor Wolf Blitzer asked DeMint, "Are you going to run for the Republican presidential nomination?"

DeMint responded, "No, no I'm not."

Daniels ran (and won) his 2nd term in 2008. There will be a new governor election in 2012 just right for Pence.

Some say running from the House is a bad idea. In a regular kind of election cycle where everything is stable, I’d agree, but not this time where there’s economic and political upheaval, and we have huge challenges to face.

Lincoln, for example, was never anything more than a member of congress before becoming POTUS, taking the helm during one of the greatest crisies we’ve ever had.

Additionally, I wonder how much experience one really needs when the task at hand is not to manage the behemoth of the centralized administrative state, but to dismantle and castrate it. And of course the presidency depends on a decent cabinet and other kinds of advisors to help make the decisions, and so it could be quite doable for Pence.

I really wish he would reconsider. His nation is calling because it needs a man like him.

Hey, Mensa, in this imaginary “ABBP” campaign I’m running, have you seen me encouraging Huck? Mitt? Tpaw? Huntsman? Rudy? Perry? Newt? Johnson? Paul?

You cultists need to understand that MANY FREEPERs and other conservative Americans do not want Palin, because she is NOT a conservative. Therefore, we promote those who are. Not ABBP ABBP is full of RINOs by definition.

I’m sorry that Pence in not running for POTUS but happy that he’ll likely be the next governor of Indiana.

Or a strong VP candidate.

At age 52 he’s got a lot of future ahead of him.

The same Pence who has since stated that he would no longer support any amnesty legislation or guest worker program. As opposed to the puppet still spouting McCain’s amnesty plan.

You know, the people you support have never polled beyond 1%, I'm pretty sure you're nothing more than a disruptor, possibly a Moby troll.

All you do is divide and squeel and disrupt for candidates that have no chance.

Pissant, the most despised poster on FR, and for good reason.
