Well, with Ron Paul in all probability throwing his hat in the ring, why NOT go with another two time loser?

I mean, it's not like he's going to do more than collect money from folks who might otherwise use it for other purposes, and heck, he'll employ some campaign staff for awhile.

At this point, the RNC is seeing a gang of usual suspects for the Primaries, and their job apparently is to collect money from rubes, so this isn't exactly surprising...

...and I STILL won't vote for him. Take a hint, guys.

Well he will be able to provide 4 more years of tax returns.  6 total.  If he runs in 2020, he will be able to provide a solid 10 years of tax returns.

Lessee, Newt will probably throw his hat in the ring to sell more books, I'm pretty sure Donald Trump will parade around for a couple of weeks before ragequitting over some random snide comment, Santorum probably really does believe that he's The Anointed One for 2016, Rick Perry will be bored and looking for more kickbacks to launder, and ain't nobody counting Michelle "Crazy Eyes" Bachmann out. Plus we have up-and-comers Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio, and there's gotta be some out-of-left-field dark horses like Herman Cain to contend with, so I think I'll go ahead and invest in the 50-lb sack of premium Grade-A popcorn just to be sure.

SHOULD never win?  Absolutely.

WILL never win?  Not nearly as certain.  Don't forget that Americans by and large are very, very stupid.

I wouldn't vote for him. He wants a Balanced Budget Amendment amongst other things.

We don't need any more conservatives in office right now. We have climate change issues, severe economic disparity and frankly we need someone to back us away from the embarrassing militarism the US has been flaunting the past 15 years alone.

farkbot42: Seriously? I thought Romney said we won't have him to kick around anymore?


He's the type that would say, "I never wanted to do this, but I'll do it to help the American people, who have demanded it."
 
2014-07-04 02:43:09 PM  
I for one thought Romney got a raw deal when he pointed out that children and old people are economically worthless and leeches on American society.

hubiestubert: I mean, it's not like he's going to do more than collect money from folks who might otherwise use it for other purposes, and heck, he'll employ some campaign staff for awhile.


But it wont be anyone too bright. The stories about the credit card cancellations were pretty widespread. But who knows? Republicans aren't exactly known for elephant-like memories.
 
2014-07-04 02:45:02 PM  
If he were to run and if he won, he would be about the same age that Reagan was when he took the oath.

If he does run, at least the "Hillary Is Too Old" crowd won't have anything to complain about. He's about 8 months older than her.

Bush didn't attend the RNC because his efforts were needed elsewhere to fight Hurricane Katrina. Not because Republicans considered him a failed President.

*coughs*

Not really sure who Romney plans to collect from. He didn't exactly click with the fringe rubes and the big corporate donors probably don't want to hedge another bet with a known loser.

tzzhc4: The last thing we need in the Whitehouse is a billionare religious zealot. Double whammy......


And not just any billionaire, but the kind of billionaire people despise the most (corporate raider), and not just any religion, but a religion too kooky even by religion standards.

The Republicans figured racism alone was enough to get their guy in. They're going to need someone a little less unscrupulous next time.

I don't see Ron running because Rand will, but it would be hilarious if they both did.

It's going to be a joy to see the Republicans thoroughly cannibalize each other in the primaries and come out with a battered and bruised "candidate," and then it will be the Ds turn to go after him.
 
2014-07-04 02:59:59 PM  
Your derision is simply liberal deflection, and a representation of your fears. You know that President Obama cannot possibly win re-election in 2016 if running against Mr. Romney.

Ahem.

Jon Huntsman.


Jon Huntsman comes across as sane and calm, but some of that is the comparison with the rest of the field. Also, if you look into his policies he's just the same-old-same-old in a kinder, gentler package. Right-to-life amendment? EPA is a reign of terror? Repeal ACA? MOAR TAX CUTS? Yeah, right.

LessO2: It's going to be a joy to see the Republicans thoroughly cannibalize each other in the primaries and come out with a battered and bruised "candidate," and then it will be the Ds turn to go after him.


But you see, they have a simple solution for that. They're just going to make the primary season shorter so they'll have less time to cannibalize themselves.

Because that was the reason they lost and not because of their empty and morally bankrupt platform.

While I've brought it up, anyone know why Prayer Breakfasts are a thing? I did some reading and Abraham Vereide, the founder of Goodwill Industries, started the big one in Washington in 1953, but I can't figure out why he thought God and grapefruit go well together. Does Jesus like waffles? Is Allah happier with omelets? Does Buddha smile over bacon?

Hey, the Early Bird Gets the White House. Liberals usually sleep in, while conservatives plot at dawn.
