"If we must have an enemy at the head of Government, let it be one whom we can oppose, and for whom we are not responsible, who will not involve our party in the disgrace of his foolish and bad measures." - Alexander Hamilton
 
"We don't intend to turn the Republican Party over to the traitors in the battle just ended. We will have no more of those candidates who are pledged to the same goals as our opposition and who seek our support. Turning the Party over to the so-called moderates wouldn’t make any sense at all." -- President Ronald Reagan
 
"A thing moderately good is not so good as it ought to be. Moderation in temper is always a virtue; but moderation in principle is always a vice." - Thomas Paine 1792
 
"It does not take a majority to prevail, but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men." - Samuel Adams
 
"If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen." - Samuel Adams

So another Amnesty Queen, Scott Walker, wants to put his hat In the ring.

"I love Paul Ryan. Paul Ryan, if he had a fan club, I'd be the president of that," said Walker.

Habla espanol?

I can’t honestly think of a governor I would want as president.

I tend to agree.

However, the devil’s in the details. Not all GOP governors are created equal.

He’s dead right. Governors know how to run stuff and have a track record that goes beyond dining with lobbyists and going on tax-paid junkets.

If you haters ever find a candidate you like that more than 10 people would vote for, let us know.

Yep, I agree with Walker.

Governors make better Presidents. “Better” defined as effective in putting through agendas.

A study of history will show that to be the case; governors are administrators and delegate and direct. In the best cases they are men like Reagan—”big picture” guys who know how to pick reasonable men to carry out their directives.

Not one is perfect, but the Presidency is an executive, administrative job—and a legislator is one of 500, working to “compromise” with the other 499 know-it-alls.

Governors are where we need to look—preferably men who have succeeded within the private sector as well.

The water in Wisc. causes both Ryan and Walker to want to let the ‘rats have their 30 million (who knows what the real # is?) illegals.

Walker and Kripsy are 20% better than their far left Democrat opponents. That is not much good nationwide.

Walker’s opponent said the hate whitey mobs were non racist.

Vitter is a better candidate than Jindal for higher office.

Id like to see Jeff Sessions or Steve King play games with Rand Paul’s hispandering.

Id trust Kasich or Branstad more than any of the other governors.

I agree, and that is why I think those in Congress are the poorest of Presidential candidates.

I would look to proven Governors, conservative CEO’s of major corporations, and military leaders.

Members of the House and Senate run their mouths and that is about all they excel in.

Shilling for Jeb.

I wonder what he got in return?

I like the governor of Wisconsin with the governor of New Mexico as his running mate.
