Bloviating Zeppelin: 2012 GOP Nominee?

Bloviating Zeppelin

(in-ep-toc'-ra-cy) - a system of government where the least capable to lead are elected by the least capable of producing, and where the members of society least likely to sustain themselves or succeed, are rewarded with goods and services paid for by the confiscated wealth of a diminishing number of producers.

2012 GOP Nominee?

There is a remarkable convergence, apparently, on the Right and on the Left.

Liberals want Sarah Palin to run in 2012 as well.

I suspect that, at this point, one side thinks it surreptitiously "has it over" the other side.

I therefore submit:

Whom might you tend to support in a 2012 Presidential run?

I'm throwing out, for instance, the names of Paul Ryan and Chris Christie.

Weigh in, please:

BZ -

I'm a Palin supporter. She, away from the idiots in the media, reminds me in many ways of Ronald Reagan. That wouldn't be a bad thing.

I also like Thaddeus McCotter, but he's not running a national campaign for anything. If he were, I'd sic him on Debbie Stabenow or Carl Levin.

Romney's health care in Massachusetts was enough to discourage me from him.

Newt and Huck have problems before they even start.

But, I do like Ryan and Jindal a bit.

So, am I sold? Yes but that's not saying I couldn't back any one besides my preferred candidate.

Mike Pence. All the way. I hope the Republican Party is smart enough to run him in November.

Ron Paul or maybe even Gary Johnson . Palin isn't any different than the rest of that lot (save for the fact she's a woman). The "conservatives" can have her (speach police and all).

I'm with T.F., especially with Romney. The Stupid Party needs to learn the McCain lesson. If they don't, they will get a repeat in 2012.

Sarah Palin. She respects the sanctity of life. That respect is what life deserves.

Everything else comes after respect for life: charity (trial lawyers feel their wealth slipping through their fingers),honoring commitments, opitimism, clarity instead of ambiguity and equivocation.

Senator McCain can just put his feet up or maybe run for dog catcher.

I still believe that the Progressive reaction to Sarah Palin is as I commented in 2008:

Did you hear that noise? It was the sound of the Democrats Identity Politics Platinum HateCard getting eaten by their ATM.

"The number you have dialled, 'My Nuanced Protected Victim Class Status' is no longer in service and there is no new number."

When your card gets eaten by the machine it means the account is not only drained but overextended.

Sound familiar?

Thanks, Homes!

In '08 I voted Republican but my vote WAS NOT for McCain.
I'd vote for Sarah again.
Or Thaddeus McCotter.
Or Allen West.
Looking at the steps he's taking in NJ, I'd even consider Christie.
And I hope there are others that come out of the woodwork.

I don't like Huckabee's desire to give amnesty to illegals.
I don't like the fact that Romney installed Socialized medicine in MA and thinks that's a good thing.

Republicans had better start paying close attention to, and courting the TEA Party. If they don't, disaster will be the outcome and I fear I'll have to oil up the gear I've bought over the last year, then lock and load.
And I ain't kidding.
To say this election is "pivotal" is understatement.

BZ, off the top of my head...

Mike Pense
Bobby Jindal
Michelle Bachmann
LTC Allen West
Chris Christie

NO DAMNED RINOs... Run a RINO, Obama wins again...

Palin, Romney, Gingrich, Huckabee, in ANY combination, hands the White House right back to the Dems... I tried desperately to tell people before the last election, McCain and Palin WILL lose, no one listened, including YOU...

I'm on record, once again, that list of RINOs on your front page, save one, Mike Pense, is a weak herd and will lose again...

Palin is a great cheerleader, fund raiser and crowd gatherer... She is NOT the savior of the GOP, she and McCain presented the weakest ticket ever and SHE was at least AS weak as was McCain...

Put Palin where she can do some good, get that dumb son of a bitch Michael Steele OUT of the RNC and let Palin raise bucks and issues... NEVER allow her to run.. EVER..

the only reason the Libs want Palin, of course, is they're sure she'd LOSE.

Ryan is fabulous..Christie's a little full of himself but I love the guy.......Ryan's pretty much said he won't run because he's got a young family (darn!)

I don't know who I'd choose.....but I wish we had someone who just plain loves America, talks STRAIGHT and HARD about illegals and terrorism and our economy ...enough so that even Dems like the person for telling the truth. Someone fresh and open and obviously America-loving.
If he/she doesn't have foreign experience, SO WHAT? Obama's broken that glass ceiling for us. And about every other one he could find.

Maybe my vote is ANYBODY BUT OBAMA?

My vote is on Mike Huckabee. Sarah Palin is a bit disappointing at the moment. However, if Mike doesn't make it past the primaries and she does, I guess I will vote for her.

hris Christie. Already, he has shaken the bushes in NJ.
I like his style.
Bobby Jindal of Louisiana.
Sara Palin of Alaska.

I do not trust Mitch Romney,as he was the Gov. of Mass.
Paul Ryan, not a chance for me.
John McCain,,nope.
Huckabe, nope.
Tancredo, maybe.
Perry, maybe.

Thanks folks for the input and suggestions. Some of those people I am not familiar with and will have to do some research.

Anyone who thinks Palin dragged the Republican ticket down last election is delusional...
Look again at the polls before/after McCain named her his running mate.
She is THE ONLY REASON McCain even came close.
Is she the answer? Maybe not.
But the fact that liberals (and others seeking to sink the R ticket) hate her puts a star next to her name in my book.
Screw them.

Well, I guess 48% of the folks that voted for McCain did it wrong...Fact is probably only 20% of them were happy with McCain/Palin, the 28% including ME understood the ramification of the Obama- pelosi-reid triad of destruction. I do know as I sit here, that McCain and Palin would have been FAR BETTER than what we have now... AND we would have at least ONE decent RIGHT leaning judge sitting on the SCOTUS. The economy may not have improved but the world would not be laughing at us like they are now...So hindsight I'm actually OK with my choice.

I blame the Republican party giving us no choice so to speak. I also blame the idiots in the primaries for propelling McCain to that spot.

Moving forward, folks need to understand we only get ONE shot left. Come November if we don't retake the house we lose it all. We are all in November. And in 2012, if we can't come up with a powerful candidate to run against Obama and get conservatives and Indy's to the polls for them....IT'S OVER for the USA.

Why doesn't uncle Ted Nugent run instead of these clowns? Remember, politicians will tell you ANYTHING you want to hear for a vote. 99% of them get corrupted eventually.

@ Soapster --- Are you serious??Ron Paul??

Oh goody, the Paulinistas are already trolling the Conservative Blogs...

1. Newt Gingrich 2. Sarah Palin
3. Chris Christie 4.Mike Spence

Vice President
1. Sarah Palin 2. Tim McClintock
3. Mike Huckabee 4. Michelle Bachmann

Pay attention folks, I preached this long and loud last election, and I was right, Palin is a ticket killer... Gingrich is a RINO of the 1st order and a ticket killer..

For the love of America, drop those 2, as well as McCain... Unless YOU want to be responsible for MORE of the bullshit we have from Obama...

And it's TOM McClintock... Sheesh, at least get the names right...

I voted for Palin in 2008, not McCain as she was the only one with executive experience on the tickets. That told me alot about what we were about to get, no matter who won.

I will not vote for Romney, the man does not understand his own tax situation and why he couldn't tax overseas investments as Gov. of MA... while he held at least 6 companies off-shore for tax purposes. That and his company working with Huawei: he still OWNED the company.

Huckabee: would you like some taxes with those taxes? How about more government 'help'? And more taxes? Cato Institute gave him a D- for his time as Gov. and I can't find reason to fault them.

Newt: Pelosi and Newt on the sofa talking about 'climate change'. Why, yes, lets be a player at a fraudulent game! Go away, Newt.

Who would I vote for? In no particular order:

Chris Cristie
Bobby Jindal
Bob McDonnell
Alan West
Michelle Bachmann

If the GOP plays 'who is next in line?' again, they can forget about being a party after 2012... the party will disintegrate if that happens.

John Thune has possibilities so does Christie, Perry, Jindal, Pence, Bachman, Allen West...To name a few. Basically it boils down to WHO we have choice for in the Primaries. AND at that point we better fight for a NO RINO campaign. We better have learned the lessons of 2008 and the republicans better have learned too.

Jim DeMint?

I agree with Texas Fred:

Palin is a ticket killer... Gingrich is a RINO of the 1st order and a ticket killer..

Thanks again, folks, very interesting observations and one final point:

If for whatever reason Conservatives tank come November and we don't regain either the House or Senate or both, this nation as we know it is absolutely through.

I mean it. It's done. You won't recognize this nation much less be able to economically survive.

I like Texas Fred's:

Mike Pence
Bobby Jindal
Michelle Bachmann
LTC Allen West
Chris Christie

I also would include AOW's Jim DeMint from right below me in SC. Wish Jesse Helms was still alive & kickin' I'd vote for him. I liked & still like Fred Thompson, but never understood why he came in so late last time & did so poorly. I still like him, though I know he's a no-go.
I couldn't agree more with TF about Newt. I have disliked him ever since '94 when he put a huge wet blanket on the excited new Republicans that had come in. He's another McCain in my book. But not too many people are busting down my door to buy my book, to I guess that's a "FWIW!"

Yeah Ron Paul. This would of course be the same Ron Paul who, during the 2008 elections, had more support from military personel than all of the other Republican candidates combined. This would be the same Ron Paul who for years as an advocate of the Austrian school of economics was warning about the economic malaise that was upon us. The same Ron Paul that worked so diligently to shed light on the Federal Reserve's secrecy.

If you care one iota about a Constitutional Republic and saving it, then yeah...tell Ron Paul to run again and tell him you'll work your arse off to make sure he wins.

90% of these other Republican jokers are statists who've no intention of shrinking government. To think that some on here even threw Tim Pawlenty's name out there is a testament to that. I know this joker well as he's my governor. For those not privy....

"The era of small government is over . . . government has to be more proactive, more aggressive."
-- Tim Pawlenty, 2006.
