I'm not convinced any of the people on this list can beat the President, partially because of previous stumbles and partially because of the math.
Still, primaries are all about persuading your fellows to vote for your candidate, unlike the general election which is about holding your nose and voting for the idiot your fellows chose instead. So who's it going to be?
Snow White and the Ten Dwarfs. :o)Mitt Romney 7.71% (547 votes)Sarah Palin 43.46% (3,085 votes)Mike Huckabee 1.17% (83 votes)Newt Gingrich 2.76% (196 votes)Mitch Daniels 10.11% (718 votes)Tim Pawlenty 6.97% (495 votes)Ron Paul 3.11% (221 votes)Herman Cain 13.9% (987 votes)John Thune 4.11% (292 votes)Haley Barbour 2.99% (212 votes)Rudy Giuliani 3.7% (263 votes)Total Votes: 7,099
Missing a few names, I see.
yeah that would be great.
The rest aren’t worth a bucket of warm spit.
I would love to see him as SOS
Ron Paul was there.
As would I.
At this point in the election cycle one might are well be looking for nirvana.
yeah saw that after looking again. so which two where missing in your mind?
None of those. The person I want is the most qualified person available who does actively seek the job. That criteria has worked very well in selecting project leaders.
“We'll win this election, but we'll win it only by fighting and by showing the Rinos and dims that we've got more guts and solutions than they have; or ever will have. We're not going to just crush the sons-of-bitches, we're going to rip out their living ***damned guts and use them to grease the treads of our industrial manufacturing revival. We're going to destroy those lousy Liberal ****suckers by the bushel-****ing-basket. Elections are a bloody, nasty business. You've got to spill their blood, or they will spill yours. Rip them up the belly. Kick them in the balls.”
That is about how I feel about Rinos and dims.
and that would be who?
he is growing on me. his call for $500 billion in cuts and a end to forgiegn aid is just what the Dr ordered.
I’d be willing to bet that Romney as candidate does NOT break 45% in a general election for POTUS.
I honestly believe he could make it if he had the support of the party.
