Romney is out... that's good news... 

 

http://hosted.ap.org...-01-30-10-54-39

as Romney sounded out his former team about putting together a new national campaign, he discovered that several of his past fundraisers had already made plans for 2016 and were committed to supporting former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush.

 

Several key former Romney donors told The Associated Press this week that in Bush they see someone who can successfully serve as president, as they believe Romney could. But they also think Bush has the personality and senior staff needed to win the White House, something the former Massachusetts governor could not bring together in his two previous presidential campaigns.

 

 

The MONEY PEOPLE want Bush.  Will the democrat media outlets say that Bush is the nominee that they'd vote for because he's the most moderate?  Will they AGAIN try to convince the Republican primary voters that "only Jeb Bush can beat Hillary"?  

Will Republican voters fall for it, again?

Yes, Yes, Yes.

The big money told Romney to take a hike. Tina is 100% correct. Media on both sides will push for Jeb. Once Jeb is in, all the republicans who back him will find that he will be the one to do what Obama couldn't get accomplished - take the guns away. Much easier pill to swallow with him doing it. With Jeb, it will still be business as usual. More wars, more "bogeymen" created like ISIS, more of your tax dollars going to the big defense contractors and Wall Street, (even though you will be made to believe that only the poor and sick ever get handouts), more catering to Saudi Arabia who has done more beheadings in the last year than ISIS could ever think about, and less rights that you will have because the NSA must get bigger to protect you! Just remember, it's for your own good and you will fall for it hook, line, and sinker. Almost too easy. Just don't get creative and start believing you have the ability to think critically. Jeb, Hillary, and RINOs and Dems don't want that.

Ps, I agree about the cheap shot on Hillary's cankles. She's had enough policy flaws to dig on her rather than her looks. But since we're already going there, does Boehner sometimes look like a crying Cheetos or what?

Thanks, Rod! 

 

Just ticks me off that women are held to a higher standard. 

 

Hillary gets a glitch in her reply, and was denigrated for being "too emotional."  A short time later, Brett Favre "retired."  He cried, a lot!  John Boehner cries, a lot!   

 

That "crap" should be parked!

Clinton is sure having a bad week... and she's not even in this thing yet... 

 

Bill Clinton can't seem to stay out of the news... lots of talk about his presidential portrait with the shadow of the blue dress... many others wondering what might come out about Clinton's relationship with convicted pedophile Jeffrey Epstein... where there's smoke? 

 

Hillary's foundation taking donations from foreign governments in violation of the rules set for her... 

 

Then we find that while Secretary of State Hillary decided she was above the law once again when she decided to run her email through a corporate account instead of a government account... 

 

Geez...

Peace, Quasar,

 

Those are all reasons why the Democratic Party should seek a better, stronger candidate for president.  Hillary is (self-)damaged goods can has shown very poor judgement in the past.  I stand by My prediction that Democrats will again nominate a dark horse, as they have done in every primary during My life which didn't involve the sitting president or vice-president.

The only way I would vote for Clinton would be if her opponent was a lot worse than her...both parties need to stop throwing the same old candidates into the ring. The old expression "tried and true" does not necessarily apply to politicans...

That's how we ended up with Obama.

Who do you think the "dark horse" will be?

I am hopeful that either or both of Elizabeth Warren and Jim Webb will choose to run against Hillary.

When asked by Glenn Beck if people should be allowed to own semi-automatic weapons, Dr. Benjamin Carson said: “It depends on where you live. I think if you live in the midst of a lot of people, and I’m afraid that semi-automatic weapon is going to fall into the hands of a crazy person, I would rather you not have it.” (Glenn Beck Show, March 1, 2013)

Personally, I will not vote for someone without a vote history to show me where they stand when the heat is on.

Too many wishy-washy sell outs in this world to vote for something as important as President on TRUST.

So, someone who has never held elective office is automatically disqualified from being President?
