Kibbler: Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Meanwhile, Queen Sarah is still being the same old coont as alwaysThat's amazing. She cashed in on an actual shiat-for-brains reality TV show, and she says that the Obamas star in one. At this point, she could claim that it was Obama's nitwit handling of a simple TV interview with Katie Couric that sank the McCain candidacy and those morons would cheer her."And what about Obama's invasion of Iraq?" Hysterical cheering.
MrBallou: Demetrius: Duuuuuude...I am sooooooo stoned right now[www.wisconsingazette.com image 385x292]WTF is wrong with his head*? It looks misshapen and sort of pin-ish.*The outside, I mean. We all know what's wrong with the inside.
Delay: Infernalist: If they highlight his aggressive demeanor against people that are generally not liked (terrorists, criminal figures, the GOP, rogue nations), then it'll work to his favor.Yep.
SilentStrider: Lionel Mandrake: Wow...Republicans really don't want to win the White House.If they did, they'd have invited Christie. He's got some crossover appeal.
Alphakronik: That's like picking a kickball team at the local special education school.
Richard Saunders: A Rubio/Haley ticket would be entertaining. And by entertaining I mean, watch liberal Democrats twitch.
GAT_00: Man On A Mission: From TFA: Former Indiana Governor Mitch DanielsThis would be the intelligent choice, which is why it will never happen.No it wouldn't. He's just as much an economic "genius" as Paul Ryan.

dickfreckle: starsrift: Rubio and Christie are the only electable ones on that list.But Rubio is the one most likely to make a poll-changing, retarded comment. I think Christie (with a fitness regimen) is the absolute smartest choice. The man can definitely be an asshole but he's certainly not stupid enough to mutter about rape, 47%, or any of the other quips we've heard from the modern GOP. He could actually engender younger or more diverse voters simply because he's not a Teabagging jerk.Sadly, he cooperated with Obama, which makes him a heretic. Even though 2016 is a ways off, folks in the primaries don't forget that sort of thing. He's obviously a socialist./would not vote for him, but would not be too upset if he won

sheep snorter: A picture from inside the convention hall.
Virtuoso80: I'm going to predict Ben Carson will be the Herman Cain of 2016. At some point during the primaries, voters will get all excited about him, but then they'll have second thoughts and move on to someone else.
propasaurus: The Why Not Guy: NPR news played a clip from Mrs. Palin's speech... she made a teleprompter crack. A woman who has to write "tax cuts" on her hand made a crack about the President's speaking skills about 4 years after the freshness date expired. That's what the Republicans and Conservatives bring to the table.Yeah, she made a TelePrompTer joke... while reading from a TelePrompTer.
TheManofPA: Don't see anyone discussing really the random name on the list Carson, who ended up 7th in the straw poll. Odd to see a neurosurgeon who doesn't believe in evolution. It does suck though that he said he's going to retire from being a slicer after all these years (sure the books are hype, but the man is a gifted surgeon). Hopefully he doesn't go off the deep end to move up in the party and tries to push more back to center.
balloot: I present to you the list of every losing GOP primary candidate who won more than 4 states in a primary:Reagan (1976)HW Bush (1980)Dole (1988)McCain (2000)Romney (2008)Santorum (2012)This could get good...
HighOnCraic: Jormungandr: If I recall right, they way the GOP does things is the one who came in second becomes the candidate next time.So that would mean Santorum. I hope that comes to pass. If Santorum doesn't become the candidate I will be sad.Santorum has an advantage over any new candidate that tries to win the nomination in '16: he managed to last through the end of the primaries last time around, so he starts off with a better ground game (just like Romney last time, and McCain in '08). Like you, I hope that Santorum becomes the Republican nominee, and I'm very happy to see esteemed journalistical resources such as WorldNetDaily spreading Santorum's message across the intertubes.
propasaurus: hey at least your education reform isn't in court - Jindal. as it should be, my god is the voucher program badly done. if you are a small religious Christian school you love the program. a mid sized city with a normal demographic curve, you hate it.Muslim religious schools need not apply.
hubiestubert: Citizens have the right to equal protection under the law, and together, those should be reason enough for the Republican party to stand for marriage equality.
HeartBurnKid: That's pretty much the entire party, isn't it?
Delay: FTA "Jennifer Rubin, made the case for gay marriage as conservative value."Laughter Out Loud.
propasaurus: I've said it before: ten years from now, the official party line will be that conservatives were ALWAYS in favor of same sex marriage and the only reason it took so long to achieve was because of the obstructionist Democrats. Remember, it was liberal hero Bill Clinton who signed DOMA and Don't Ask Don't Tell.
Curious: WorldCitizen: Man On A Mission: From TFA: Former Indiana Governor Mitch DanielsThis would be the intelligent choice, which is why it will never happen.Not really./Hoosier//Our educational system (the primary function of a state government) has been gutted, but we have a balanced budget to make him look good to fiscal conservatives!///I'm just SURE gutting our educational system will have no long term, negative consequences in a highly competitive 21st Century economy.hey at least your education reform isn't in court - Jindal. as it should be, my god is the voucher program badly done. if you are a small religious Christian school you love the program. a mid sized city with a normal demographic curve, you hate it.
Infernalist: But, that's the funny part. It should be a GOP value!
MontanaDave: dericwater: At this moment, the GOP bench is so disastrous that one could pick any pair for the ticket and I'd be saying, "Yes, oh please, oh please!"Can anyone name two GOPers who can meet the following criteria:1) Win their primaries2) Win the general3) Have sane national policies in regards to a) National Economics (as in, no more trickle-down) b) Social welfare (as in progressive taxation and support for unions) c) Healthcare (as in driving towards a single-payer system) d) Defense (in particular, have the balls to cut defense spending) e) Civil rights (as in, not to gut the various portions of the civil rights act)I think the Venn Diagram of people that fit any of those criteria will show a null set for the common intersection.Way to place the goalpost on a different playing field. You want us to name GOPers who are Democrats?
HeartBurnKid: Infernalist: HeartBurnKid: SilentStrider: Lionel Mandrake: Wow...Republicans really don't want to win the White House.If they did, they'd have invited Christie. He's got some crossover appeal.Eh, TBH, I don't think Christie would do well. His "crossover appeal" mostly comes from the fact that he actually said nice things about Obama; once people got a load of what a loudmouthed asshole he is, I think that'd evaporate really fast./at least he's not farking crazy, thoughNot if they played it right. Christie has enormous appeal in his state, among both parties, due to his aggressive efforts to help his state and constituents.A solid case could be made for a series of ads highlighting Christie's efforts to be truly bipartisan and reach across the aisle to work with Democrats. To say absolutely 'nothing' of his open and repeated comments of scorn and disdain for GOP members who insinuated that he put national GOP needs above those of his constituents.It can very easily be believed that Christie is a man of New Jersey before he's a Republican and 'that' translates well to a national election. In short, if they believe he'd give the finger to the GOP over what his current constituents want and need, that he'll turn around and give the same priority to the American people over what the GOP wants from him.And honestly, looking at the man and how he acts, I believe this would be the case. He's a jerk, but he's the jerk responsible for New Jersey's citizens and he does right by them.At this point, I'd want a President who'd give the finger to the blowhards in both parties and do what's needed and wanted by the American people.That's fair enough, but an election is at least as much a popularity contest as it is a contest of policies. Christie's personality may resonate with New Jersey, but I don't see him really winning people over outside of it; not with the way he behaves and carries himself.
Infernalist: What black man could sign up for the GOP at this point and still be able to call himself a man?
redqueenmeg: propasaurus: quatchi: Richard Saunders: A Rubio/Haley ticket would be entertaining. And by entertaining I mean, watch liberal Democrats twitch.*blink*You think a Hispanic presidential candidate with a female vice presidential candidate would make Dems twitch?[quizzicaldog]Have you ever actually met the GOP base?Lawls.You see, it's because liberals are the real racists and misogynists.Either that, or because liberals would never be able to believe that minorities would be some other party, or else liberals are obliged to vote for minorities and so they would be forced to vote Republican.

abb3w: 1) Religious nuts, who won't pass muster in the national electorate2) Economic nuts, ditto3) Folks in BOTH 1 and 2, double-ditto4) North-East RINOs, who won't pass muster with the base in the GOP Primaries
Counter_Intelligent: Republicans don't need to win the White House, considering they're getting just about all they want by being obstructionists in Congress.
Alphakronik: That's like picking a kickball team at the local special education school
jjorsett: Some of these are governors who are going to get suckered into sign on to Obamacare. They may as well set fire to their Republican card while they're at it.
Lionel Mandrake: Wow...Republicans really don't want to win the White House.
Precious Roy's Horse Dividers: Meanwhile, Queen Sarah is still being the same old coont as always"Palin hit Obama on everything from gun control to transparency and likened his administration to a TV reality show."
gameshowhost: Of course Scott Walker did. He's put WI's economy behind both the national average and (more tellingly) behind all the other states in the region. He's only ~210k jobs away from hitting his 4-yr plan to create 250k jobs, at the *halfway point*. Plus Forbes recently projected WI to be 2nd-worst in economic development thru 2016. Scott Walker for President because excellent track record.
