Let’s see, a Birther, a RINO and Preacher walk into a bar…Sounds like the beginning of a bad joke. unfortunately it’s reality. These three are leading polls as the “One to take over America in 2012.” If that’s true will we actually be better off?
Trump, A pretty damn good business man, has a lot of things right regarding our economic issues. BUT there are a lot of IF’s behind him. Would I vote for him in 2012? Don’t know. If I do, it would be another “Anti-incumbent” vote.
Romney, another pretty damn good business man, Former Governor, but he’s got RomneyCare on his head not to mention several issues with “Rinoism” that I am really pissed about. Would I vote for him? Don’t know. If I do, it would be another “Anti-incumbent” vote.
Huckabee, A preacher, a former Governor, who has a moral compass pointed due north. out of the three on this list he’s the one I’d be most happy voting for. That is NOT an endorsement by any means, it just means if I voted for him I wouldn’t cut my own arm off afterwards.
This brings me to the crux of the matter. I wonder if WE Americans will ever again have a candidate that we FULLY SUPPORT. What I mean is, in 2000 we had GWB, he was running against Al Gore and I fully supported GWB, I was pleased with the candidate I voted for in 2000. In 2004 I was extremely HAPPY to support GWB, although not as giddy about it I was still sure he was the man for the job. in 2008, We had little choice.
In 2008, I would be willing to bet my ridiculously low pay check that over half of the votes McCain got were more ANTI-OBAMA votes than they were PRO-McCain votes.
I do not want to go to the polls in 2012 and be so disgruntled at my choices that I pull the lever more for an AGAINST than a FOR. But if I had to bet that’s exactly what will happen.
I think it’s very important that we remove Obama, and I think the GOP understands it has to offer a better candidate than McCain. But it really isn’t the GOP that has power, it’s US. So in the primaries PLEASE people do your research. Do not allow the media to pick our candidate.
Sheesh… That’s what I don’t want. Voting for someone because I don’t like the other guy sucks. The bad part is there are only a hand full of folks I’d SUPPORT totally.. The leader of that list is Allen West or John Bolton… It will be very interesting during the primaries. Stay tuned…
