2012 Looks Grim
Where in the hell are the challengers to Obama that can actually get elected!?! Our front runner right now is Donald Trump? Seriously? In what ridiculous world is THAT ever going to happen?
Newt Gingrich? Puh-lease. No fricking way.
Mitt Romney? A reject from last go-around? Nope.
Haley Barbour? Nobody north of the Mason-Dixon line would vote for him.
Mike Huckabee? Can you say B-A-G-G-A-G-E? Can you Google "Maurice Clemmons"?
Even if Sarah Palin throws her hat in there, she can't get elected. Sorry, folks, but it's true. She can't. She has a fired up base, she has a role to play in the party, but candidate isn't it. It's just not.
I'm furious at Mike Pence for NOT running because he's one I think could actually get elected. What's he doing, anyway? Waiting for the safer bet in 2016? What's the field going to look like then? Rubio? Ryan? Pence? We're saving all our good candidates for a year when only one can get elected?
I know, it's too soon now for Rubio. It just is. He has to prove himself. I'd vote for Ryan right now, though. And Pence.
But instead, I've got Donald Trump.
The GOP needs to get their act together and fast. Obama is already in full campaign mode and somewhere ACORN is organizing something nefarious.
We can't stand another four years of Obama. He's ready to "finish the job" and that doesn't bode well for freedom, free enterprise, capitalism, or democracy.
