The Democrats will be in a fever vying to be the next candidate, and thereby the next president.

Fortunately it’s a mistake for him to let his intentions known so soon after sabotaging Romney.

Let’s just hope we have a herd of RINOs stampeding the GOP primary this time around—and the tea party coordinated to back a single real conservative.

We need to get a start on that right now. Basically any Conservative who supports any RINO or RINO wannabee is giving away the election to a Commie and has thereby become a running dog lackey.

I have been trying. Calling on fellow conservatives who have any principle remaining to rise up and purge the RINOs and their supporters from all aspects of our ‘party’.

We must or we are done. And there are so few of us left we are damn near done now.

First he gives the election to Obama.

Then he thinks he's going to run for president?

He's on a roll!

"And half of conservativedom will back him and trash any opposition as traitors.

Well then, I'll take my trashing early, because I'm done with these liberal Republican quislings. I sufficiently slimed myself last month to vote for Romney, for nothing.

Unless the GOP nominates a solid conservative, such as Allen West, they can win elections without me.

What was that study that said that your workplace should resemble you or reflect your characteristics or something?

I suppose he thinks that the 'oval office' will suit him perfectly.

Then join us in banding together and never letting the quislings run free. Here or anywhere else.

Call them on their BS. EVERY TIME you hear it. And never allow them to divert the issues. We all gotta do something. Whatever that something may be. All the PR/Propaganda money in the world does not matter when people stand for something.

He's probably got more mass than your entire American family put together!

Better hope he doesn't sit on you, or you'll be deeply impressed....Impressed into the ground, that is.

we want just one (1) Conservative to run,
& hopefully it’s Sarah Palin.

Let Christie, or any rino, try it against a race in which there is only one bonafide Conservative.......

Never happen with the GOP. They are globalists afterall.

With the TEA philosophy there is a chance.

He’ll get the phat vote-too many of them to ignore. Many are poor so that will help. It’s just a question of who you want to see every evening on the news after a long workday/commute. Still he wouldn’t look too appealing(unless he hollars a lot more).

All the opposition need do in the primaries is run pix of Christie hugging Obama.

Christie may get luv from the moderates, but he won’t from the conservatives. He might do well in the north, but he won’t in the South.

And though I don’t know you, I have no doubt at all you would.

So many Freepers could do so much better than the idiots we ended up/will end up with. But again, it’s people within our own ranks that stop any cream from rising to the top.

Ideas and such are nothing. Just personality and a face for TV. And look how many literally said that “Principle does not matter” and that “Purists” were fools.

Look how many if these stalwart conservatives trashed Palin. They all liked her ideas but well.....it’s Palin and...uh...we just cant and that all!!

Since the opposite of purity is corruption, what does that make them?

Interesting that so many of them have been silent the last month and a half about the whole thing. But a few are now out there defending Bohner I guess.

Jokes aside, being 50 y/o now and extremely overweight is truly dangerous. He’ll be 54 in 2016. I think many people will question his health.

They will run another black socialist and run the same dirty campaign.Mrs. Obama may run.

Too many takers now. Reagan from the grave could not Win now. Can you see Reagan running for California's Governor now?

It’s too late for us to fight him now!

Anyone who didn't’t vote for Romney is a Traitor to this country. Whether Liberal or Conservative.

We will never have a conservative or rino president again.

It will be socialists and commies like Zero forever and this country will be like California in 10 Years.

We fought the Mexicans for years, for what! Even Reagan knew better. They are going to do to USA as they Did in California!

Romney Loved this country as much as any one of us and we conservatives spoke bad of him.

Now we got what we deserve, Obama and ObamaCare, and Calification of our our country I Now fly my falg upside down and I will until the day I die!

Thanks again all you traitors who did not vote for Romney. And kept the baby killer, Obama in Office!
