Skip to comments.Is Bob Corker Running for President?

Bob Corker wants a problem-solver to run for president in 2016.
Not by chance, that's how the Tennessee Republican and ranking member on the Foreign Relations Committee describes his own role in the Senate.
"Every senator has probably thought about it," Corker said about running for president. "All I really wish to see happen in 2016 is that we have a good president, great president for our nation. I hope someone steps forward that has the ability to solve problemsnot just throw rhetoric out there."
And despite serving in one of the least productive Senates in history, solving problems is something Corker thinks he's done since landing in the upper chamber in 2006.
Indeed, while the tea party has dragged the Republican Party rightward and the GOP wages a pitched fight for control of the Senate, Corker has been busy forging a reputation as a deal-maker, someone who zeroes in on a high-stakes issue and then crosses the aisle to ink a deal with Democrats.

Huntsman’s not a candidate again, then? Corker sees daylight in the third tier.
He and Rubio can run as a team—the Gang of 8 amnesty supporters.

Yep, he’s a good go along get along guy. Just what we need. NOT!
Trial balloon made out of lead.
Tea Party: "We think we see the problem here."
Ugh. My breakfast is still sitting a bit high to even consider such a thing.
Bob may be a crackerjack and a humdinger but he’s definitely not a ripsnorter or a corker.
If so, it might very well be the second time a candidate loses his home state (Tennessee).
The best that can be said, is we will have a better than Presen__t.
Tax increase proposal = far chance
I will not cuss. I will not cuss. I will not cuss.
The last thing we need.
Corker is nothing more than ANOTHER Kabuki theater participant.
I hope not, he has the money, and power of being a incumbent, and national gop elite with a known name who will endorse him. RINO, just like lamar.
