How about you run a story on when one of these people actually declares?
2012 will be interesting indeed. The whispers around here in the D.C. area is
that Romney is the best one out there. Huckabee is laughed off as a joke by so
many people (except his Southern Baptist following). Haley Barbour? Nope. He's
too Southern "good ol' boy" and isn't savvy enough to do this. I used
to work at his lobbying firm and he just doesn't come across as sharp and smart
to the public (and they know this). He won't get far, and will try to ride on
the coat tails of Hurricane Katrina and the old GOP lobbyists.Not
many have heard of Huntsman outside Utah and the general political circles.
Although he'd be an excellent candidate! Will be interesting to see what he
does. I personally really like him.A lot of people who are staunch
Dem's are asking what happened to the Obama they voted for? They wish the
President were Clinton now.
The only one of any value in the whole bunch is Huntsman, and he doesn't stand a
chance given the fact that he's conservative instead of being a far right
I'm disappointed when I see a long article like this considering at least 10
likely GOP candidates (who are largely clones of each other in both political
rhetoric and spin) but completely omitting any reference to Ron Paul -- easily
the most interesting and provocative GOP candidate for 2012. He's not likely to
win the final nod but he will certainly be part of the story. He has beat Mitt
Romney at CPAC for two years running now (no small feat) and he continues to
have probably the most widespread support network of any candidate at this
point. Don't overlook Dr. Paul, that's all I'm saying. :)
I want to see more publicity for Ron Paul, he hardly gets any at all, and when
he does, he is outrite lied about, I dare any one of these New World order
Republicans to openly debate him on any issue,
@jdg, a vote for Ron Paul is a vote for a 2nd term for Barack Obama. I'm sure you're sick and tired of hearing this as are most Paul people I know,
but I am sick and tired of my fellow republicans putting their own misplaced
ideals ahead of the well-being of Our Country by supporting an individual who
has no chance of victory against our current President.
jdgI agreee whole heartedly with your statement. Ron Paul is
definatley more popular than any one of these puppet republicans. Recent
elctorial polls have shown this despite the hatchet job Fox has tried to do on
There is a reason Ron Paul gets no media attention. He has no chance and will
be completely irrelevant in the campaign. The past few years have proven this
to be the case.
Is there anything that these 8-10 people have not told us already?Yet they were not voted in, what makes them think they will be now?Mr Globtreccker check your facts as in the national poll taken 1 week ago
Huckaby again leads Romney.This is like going to the circus and
having a new person say "come on in and see the woman with no head"
Everytime we go there we are surprised to see a woman with a head but dressed to
look like she doesn't have one. How many times can people be suckered into
that?If any of these people wanted to be anything other than elected
I think we would see them doing something for their country other than
campaigning. They seem to have the thought stuck in their heads that they can
fix the countries woes yet none of them have brought forth ideas of merit enough
to act on.I say help is needed but not from this bunch of circus
Out of the spotlight? I can read about Mitt every single day in DN.
Why Mitt Romney is the Leader We Need in 2012:1. He vetoed eight
sections of the Massachusetts health care legislation, including a controversial
$295-per-employee assessment on businesses that do not offer health insurance
and provisions guaranteeing dental benefits to Medicaid recipients. The Democrat
legislature overrode all eight vetoes.2. Romney said of the measure
overall, "People ask me if this is conservative or liberal, and my answer
is yes. It's liberal in the sense that we're getting our citizens health
insurance. It's conservative in that we're not getting a government takeover.3. His companies have created over 10,000 sustainable, private sector
jobs.4. He took the 2002 Utah Winter Olympics 300 million dollar
deficit and turned it into a 100 million dollar surplus - the most successful
games on record.5. He took Massachusetts' 1.5 BILLION dollar deficit
and turned it into a 600 million dollar surplus by increasing some user fees,
but NOT raising taxes.6. He balanced the budget every year he was in
office without raising income taxes or adding to state debt.7.
80,000 new private sector jobs were created under his watch in Massachusetts.
