Ok, the GOP is heading for disaster this November.
Just for the sake of conversation who do people like for president in 2012? Here is a list of conservatives who might make a race out of 2012:
General David Petraeus
Senator John Thune
Senator John Ensign
Senator Jim DeMint
Governor Don Carcieri
Governor Mark Sanford
Governor Bobby Jindal
Governor Haley Barbour
Oh, and how about replacing Iowa and New Hampshire in the Republican nomination with more reliably conservative medium sized states such as Colorado and Nevada going first and second respectively and allowing ONLY registered Republicans to vote in the primary?
Nah, too old, let’s try and get someone in their 40’s to early 60’s.
That’s a *PROMISING* list. I also like *TOM COBURN*.
It’s *UNFORTUNATE* that 2008 is already *LOST*. I will *NEVER* vote for *RINO* McLame.
As always, Duncan Hunter.
But what if McCain wins in 2008?
“But what if McCain wins in 2008?”
I guess it is possible, but it looks really unlikely if you can’t even get Sean Hannity and Limbaugh to push you.
Also, Paul will probably go third party because of McCain’s war stance.
I like Bobby Jindal.
Then we start a *NEW* party because the *OLD* one will be *DESTROYED*.
I thought of Marc Racicot too. Don’t know if there is anything that would keep him out.
Are we sure Gen. Petraus is even a Republican? Does anyone know his politics?
Ron Paul might actually win, if he goes third party.
I have the same questions about Gen. Petraus. He’s a true hero but there is great danger in hero worship.
Let's see who does the very best job standing up to McCain, Obama, or the Beest. That person should be our nominee.
“Are we sure Gen. Petraus is even a Republican? Does anyone know his politics?”
Patience, that is what the primary is for. :)
There’s always Tommy Franks and Oliver North to add to the list.
I’ll take Newt at 200 years old over the rest of this cast of characters. The guys on your list at least have 4 years to make themselves credible.
"Four More Years"
Why does every FR presidential list start with some military superstar?
Schwarzkopf said he didn’t want to run for office
Powell didn’t want a POTUS runS in ‘96
Pace didn’t want to be drafted for the VA senate run
and now Petraeus?
Let’s move on.
