I have to agree with you. Either of these two are not afraid to speak their minds, AND WE NEED A PRESIDENT AND VICE PRESIDENT WHO LOVES AMERICA!

I don’t think she’ll run. I think she’s enjoying being a free agent too much and has come to roughly the same conclusion Rush did 20 years ago about why he didn’t want to enter politics.

I think Obama will have “retired” by then. I’m standing by my prediction that he’ll be the first President to resign because he’s just plain tired of the job.

Burnout happens to executives every day in every industry in the world. There’s no reason the Presidency should be immune to it.

Alan Keyes has been good enough for four presidential runs.

Can’t we preserve our purity, and just continue to vote for him until he dies some time in the next 30 or 40 years, he still has at least 6 or 7 more presidential runs in him.

Must we contaminate ourselves by having to compromise among other candidates, that are not so pure as Alan Keyes?

Obama will cancel the election due to financial emergency, and next day put 50,000 troops around the White House, as the folks advance on Washington with pitchforks and other weapons for overthrow.

That’s easy: Obama in a cake walk.

As long as the media stays behind him, he’s unbeatable.

Forget those polls. That just means the media has to kick it up a notch and the pols ahve to spend some more of our money buying votes.

To be honest, I don’t really see anyone promising on the R side anyway. ‘Cept for maybe Christie from NJ.

The Demonrats will pull some stunt, like incite a riot or pull a legal fast one and eliminate the election. State of emergency? Martial law?

Maybe just miscounting the votes, per Joe Stalin?

Or maybe nothing more than convincing the electorate that conservatives are meanies and want to take away the health insurance (that they never had) but won’t add that last part because it’s the truth and they don’t deal with the truth.

It would be really interesting if the democrats refused to nominate him and he went socialist party or something. Both he and the democrats would be destroyed in the explosion but it would be great fun to watch.

I think DeMint/Bachmann would be a great combination and a great team.

And both can speak without a teleprompter.

Bachman is awesome. I saw her CPAC speech on C-Span and she brought me to tears. Can’t forget her little tangle with Specter. Stood her ground and won. He’d better leave those “young ladies” Bachman and Ingraham alone. I’d never hazard a guess about the potential candidates but I’m getting excited. Christmas in November.

Looks like ‘96 all over again. The ‘Pubs take over Congress in 2010, and Obama (with the media supporting him 110%) runs against the “Republican Congress that did nothing”, as well as whatever weak candidate the ‘Pubs might field in 2012. Obama will stomp them and cruise to a second term.
