Brian Schweitzer Mulling 2016 Presidential Bid
RCP ^

Posted on 10/19/2013 3:08:04 PM PDT by ClaytonP

In an interview with RealClearPolitics, former Montana Gov. Brian Schweitzer indicated that he may launch a White House bid, even if front-runner Hillary Clinton also enters the race.

..

“There’s a whole lot of America that looks at each other and says, ‘Well, there’s 340 million people living in America. Isn’t there somebody other than a Bush or a Clinton who can be president in these modern times? Isn’t there hope for somebody who’s running a business or who has served overseas or comes from a different occupation to become president? Are we now in the era of royalty again?’ So I think there’s some level of frustration about that.”

PLEASE Brian RUN RUN RUN!!!

This man could capture the rat nomination in the Midwest. 2016 is going to have to be a reverse CHAOS. We have to keep Hitlery’s opponents alive as long as possible.

A very good question.

...front-runner Hillary Clinton..

Good God I never thought I would see the day where Hitlery would be classified as a "front runner". Talk about slamming in the final nail, 2 terms of Obama then Hitlery? ho ho ho ho. Yes, Hillary Clinton - complete disaster as Senator, absolute disaster as Secretary of state, Perfect qualifications!

Well, I'm with him on that but, in the end, he just wants his turn to work out his pet peeves and psychopathies on us the same as all the other 'Rats, so what difference, at this point, does it make?

Be careful what you wish for. This wackjob brags about stealing elections for Democrats.

Hope Schweitzer has lots of free stuff to give away. Seems to be all the voters really care about.

Has he yet proclaimed his love of homosexual, Hispanic union men who’ve successfully signed up for the “Affordable” Care Act?

Yep. Brags about how they kept the polls open in Butte until they knew how many ballots they needed to forge.

They all do. If he can steal it from Clinton, I’ll be glad. Her ability to cheat is probably a lot more high level than his.

If he had not been term limited he would have been reelected with 70% or more of the vote. He would have easily won Max's senate seat had he run..

I think he's actually running to be Hilliary’s veep..

Brian Schweitzer is one of the very very very few Democrats that I like. He reminds me of the time when Democrats were moral and for the working man. Now the party is for the non-working man.

Will Brian Trash Obama or kiss his tail? If he can expose the One He will do a service to the nation. My bet he will worship at the Liberal/ Progressive altar to get good press—saying Obama was the best president we have ever had.

I think all the rat candidates will try to distance themselves from Obama because his name will be associated with economic ruin.

My guess is Schweitzer runs as a ‘great uniter’ or some other BS.

Look up Schweitzer’s address to the lawyers. He’s for himself.

Let me make this perfectly clear:

Hillary Clinton will be your next president of the USA.

I do not doubt it. If an admitted foreign born Islamic commie can get elected twice anybody could.
