The Early 2016 List — Yes, No and Maybe
When the Presidential election rolls around and we start looking at the candidates and hoping we can find one that has what it takes to bring America back to the way it was under Ronald Reagan, I like to take an individual look at the folks thought to be in the know as potential Presidential candidates. So, in no particular order; here goes, these are the ones we have so far and the opinions I express are strictly that, MY opinions.
Sen. Ted Cruz – A Conservative that has nearly every member of the GOP establishment in a sweaty and nervous, almost *tantrum* mode. When Ted Cruz arrived on the scene in D.C. I honestly knew little about the man. Cruz served as Solicitor General of Texas from 2003 to May 2008 and I honestly wasn’t at all sure how I felt about him. Of course I voted for him in the Senate race because there was no real alternative, but now that he’s in D.C. and driving the GOP’s Good Old Boy network totally crazy, I am watching him closely, and like what I see so far.
Gov. Sarah Palin – I am NOT a fan of Palin’s; I do NOT believe she would be a good, or even an average President. Palin is invaluable to the Conservative movement, she is one of the best, if not THE best cheerleaders the GOP could have and would, in my opinion, be an outstanding leader for the RNC. God knows she would be a lot more forceful than Reince Priebus.
Gov. Mike Huckabee – Plays a pretty good guitar.
Gov. Chris Christie – An anti-gun upper East Coast RINO that has NO business seeing the inside of the White House on anything other than a visitors pass.
Gov. Rick Perry – Perry spent 17 years as Governor of Texas and he did a really good job for the state. Texas is very secure and financially solvent, Perry handed Greg Abbott an office that will be much easier to run because of the Perry legacy. Can Rick Perry overcome the gaffs from the last try for the nomination for POTUS? I don’t really know to be honest with you. Rick Perry is a lot more substantial than he appears but the Texas accent, they say he has an accent, I never heard it, but supposedly his accent, his manner of speaking and his last outing in 2012 may turn off a lot of non-Texans.
Gov. Scott Walker – Walker must be doing something right, Wisconsin has kept him in office for a long time now, and in more than one office. From what I have read so far, Walker is not an altogether bad candidate.
Sen. Rick Santorum – Santorum is one of those guys that leaves me cold. He got beat out in 2012 by Mitt Romney for crying out loud. I don’t see anything glaringly wrong with him but I don’t see anything that screams *GOOD POTUS* to me either.
Dr. Ben Carson – Carson is a very well educated man in many areas and a total DUMBASS where our Second Amendment rights and anything to do with guns is concerned. For me that equates to HELL NO!
Donald Trump – The man has the most abrasive personality imaginable, I change the channel when he comes on the TV. Does he have a good head for business? Sure he does but he has NO style, no finesse. Money doesn’t buy *class*.
Sen. Joni Ernst – Really cute, perky and seriously lacking the experience needed. Remember, Obama was a half-term U.S. Senator when he got to the White House. We don’t need another inexperienced *gaff machine*. Ernst may become a very capable and desirable choice in a few years but I don’t believe she is up to the task just yet.
Gov. Mitt Romney – Dear God NO! Please, not again. Wasn’t running and losing twice more than enough? Caspar Milquetoast is not what America needs, and we can’t overlook his recent remarks about global warming being man-made, for ME, Romney is and always has been a NO.
Gov. Jeb Bush – Pro-amnesty, pro-Common Core and more of a *One World Government* supporter than his brother, father and grandfather. Absolutely a NO!
Sen. Rand Paul – The NUT didn’t fall too far from the tree.
So there you have it; my opinions on those thought to be running so far. Love em or hate em, I believe someone on that list WILL be the GOP offering in 2016.
