Some will obviously go for BHO. Don’t underestimate the degree to which the MSM is in the tank for him or their influence. Starting in Sept 2012, they will pull out ALL the stops to get him reelected. Not sure if a majority will be fooled, but enough might be—especially the women. And that goes for college kids/Twenty somethings too. A lot of independents might also stay home or vote third party as a “pox on all your houses” protest.
Unlike many here, I think that BHO will be very hard to beat despite his poor performance. Its critical that we don’t nominate someone with an existing handicap among voters or someone who will self destruct (ala, McCain).
And who would that be?
“someone with an existing handicap among voters or someone who will self destruct...”
That’s a perfect description of obuma. I look forward to obuma’s brain publicly locking up in a psychopathic meltdown and spewing Hitler-like invectives. He’s come close a few times.
“Its critical that we dont nominate someone with an existing handicap among voters or someone who will self destruct”
So, who should it be? What do you think?
Romney might have appeal (at least for now) to “independents” but he’s got NO support on the right. And, he couldn’t even beat McCain last time!
Palin’s negatives are THROUGH THE ROOF. As much as I like her I was very taken aback when a gal I work with, no big lib, said off the cuff about something “I really hate Sarah Palin but....” She did go on to defend Palin over some kerfuffle (I’m sorry I can’t remember what it was, some flap) but the way she said she “hated” her, it blew me away. I don’t know why people don’t like her, if the MSM just really destroyed her or what, but I’d be very hesitant to put my money on her.
Bachmann? She’s turning into a gaffe machine. I’ve sent her money, so it’s not like I can’t prove my support of her, but the Elvis thing was just s.t.u.p.i.d. I know it is a minor issue, but you really shouldn’t be making mistakes like that.
Santorum? Maybe, he could yet rise further.
Caine, Gingrich, Paul, these are all non-starters for various reasons.
So, those are the declared candidates plus Palin.
Well, I didn’t discuss Perry, but I’ll say he is looking like the not-Romney/not-Palin to me right now.
I don’t think Paul Ryan would be well served by getting in the race and I’m not sure the race would be well served by his entrance.
If Chris Christie leaves NJ to run for Pres. I will be really POed, and besides I don’t think he’ll play in Peoria. He’s very soft on the 2nd amendment and definitely no better on immigration than Perry.
So, I’ve blathered on, tell me what you think?
Some will obviously go for BHO.
