CURL: One president, please, with a side of Rice
Washington Times ^ | December 18, 2011 | Joseph Curl

Posted on 12/18/2011 8:04:58 PM PST by MV=PY

Republican diners haven’t yet picked their entree, but they’ve narrowed it down to the steak or the fish. Still, just as interesting as their main course will be their side selection: Will they go for a drab salad, or something more exciting? Maybe a spicy Rice dish?

Yes, that Rice: Condi. She’s rested and ready - and buff.

America’s first black female secretary of state is quietly positioning herself to be the top choice of the eventual Republican presidential nominee, ready to deliver bona fide foreign-policy credentials lacking among the candidates. The 56-year-old has recently raised her profile, releasing her memoir in November and embarking on a monthlong book tour.

Seems to me that she could bring in a lot of voters.

I’d love it if Condi joined in. Exactly what we need to take down the loser!

No. Never. She is staunchly pro-abort, and remained so under Bush, who was genuinely pro-life.

Give it a rest. No Bushies. No Rinos.

Marco Rubio. Conservative credibility and Florida’s electoral votes to boot.

We will not tolerate this “one world” amorphous blob rino any where near VP. Millions of us will opt out and to hell with it. If you have the chance to vote for a real Democrat versus a fake demodrat— just go real thing. Condi Rice is horrible. No way Jose. Absolutely not!!!

"Marco Rubio. Conservative credibility and Florida’s electoral votes to boot."

Senator Marco Rubio is not a natural born Citizen of the United States to constitutional standards. He was born a dual citizen of both Cuba and the USA. He is thus not eligible to serve as the President or Vice President of the United States per Article II, Section 1 of the U.S. Constitution.

I liked Sarah (spirit), then Cain (non-pol), now settling on Newt (not afraid to do battle).

I’d vote for my toaster if it ran against Obama.

By my reckoning we need Obama out even if we don’t find our ideal conservative candidate.

Does she discuss all of her boyfriends in her profile?

I think the abortion issue should be off the table for this election. For one, the laws will not change no matter who is in charge on the Republican side.

And secondly, there are much more important things to consider.

We need a steady experienced hand at the foreign policy front and Condi’s got it.

How about we run Rudy and Condi? Then we can have two pro-abort liberals on the ticket.

Bet you were pushing Scott Brown two years ago because he “could bring in a lot of voters.”

Much more important things to consider? Not if you’re an unborn child whose mother has an appointment tomorrow with an abortionist.

Yeah, let’s take it off the table. How compassionate of you.

It’s tragic that the unborn can’t vote or tithe. If they could, abortion would come to a halt in one election cycle.

Nope, I wasn't. Nor am I pushing Condi.

I just think it's an interesting idea to win the election.

Too bad.

You do not get to dictate others not oppose the killing of babies no matter how much zeebee might not give a crap if people carve living children up in the womb.

If you want to continue your chosen path of urging the status quo on that, and urge others to give up on it you will have to take that position up with the site owner.

I agree. Good balance. I like Santorum a lot. He'd make an excellent heir apparent to Gingrich in '16, and he'd learn a lot of DC maneuvering from Gingrich in the meantime.

If the law did not change when we had a pro-life president with both houses under R control, it won’t change now.

I’m not saying the issue is not important. I’m saying that it will not be an issue this election. We need to restore sanity and morality in our country first.

Sorry, but he's not eligible. His parents were not citizens at the time he was born. We already have on "president" who wasn't eligible. We don't need another ineligible in line for the Presidency.
