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.

GOP Potential Candidates: NO and YES

Apparently Texas Representative Ron Paul, in a recent straw query at CPAC, polls currently as the Number One GOP presidential preference.

I'll provide you with a few moments to fully digest that. (Please avail yourself of the Jeopardy "waiting" music below.)

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, retired Army Lt Colonel and Florida Representative Allen West (R) closed the 2011 CPAC with a speech that inspired and rang true. Speed through this video up to 8:45 -- then Lt Col West appears, motivates and enlightens:

[Go here for a much more condensed and highly-edited version.]

Yes, you know Conservatives: racists all. It's just us white overlords trying to keep the black man down. Except that it is Leftists who typify West as "one of the most vulnerable Congressmen" in DC -- ripe for immediate attack only 35 days into his term. And Leftists are definitely attacking. The greater the fear, I submit, the greater the attack. I said that with Palin, I say that with West.

The problem is: Lt Col Allen West knows and exemplifies dignity, honor and courage.

Ron Paul: NO.

Lt Col Allen West: YES.

We need to push him to throw his hat in the ring for 2012...

No Ron Paul, No Sarah Palin, No Huck, No Romney, No McCain, No Usual Suspects!

I suspect that may be true.

And -- so -- HOW can we motivate him for this position, Robert??

I definitely agree about Ron Paul. The man is one step short of being a loon.

And I like West.

I must admit, it certainly would be entertaining to see a conservative black man run against the President. I've watched Rep West for quite some time now and I hope he gets the exposure he deserves.

Not only does he have to battle the left/democrats, he's got an uphill battle against the the snob/blue blood/rino republicans. I have a hard time visualizing people with the Rove/Frum mentality standing behind him....the same people who STILL think that Romney is presidential material!

I wished that he was on MY side of the state so, I could have voted for him AND Rubio.

With this and what Gov. Scott has proposed so far, it's a great day to be a Floridian!!

NO MORE RINOs... That encompasses Bushwacks list... RINOs one and all... Include one other, no Newt Gingrich either...

No more lesser of the evils, by God, it's time to get serious, and we need someone like West and/or Cain...

Holy shit Batman, would we ALL be racists if we had a West/Cain or Cain/West ticket and we ALL supported them??

An interesting proposition I believe...

We need a West/Bolton ticket in any order. I suspect if enough people let the good Lt Col. know we'd support him he'd announce his candidacy. BUT there's an issue. The people of Florida put him in congress to represent them. They threw out a pure liberal asshat for him. I suspect that would be a hard pill to swallow for the folks in his district. The folks in his district need to push him to the WH.

Agreed, we DON'T need the usual suspects... I'd vote for West!

The GOP has no-one. Obama's a lock.

I would vote for Allen West for POTUS -- without any hesitation.

It's a long way 'til we pull the lever, but I REALLY like what I see from LTC West so far. (Army pride speaking here, so ymmv.)
As we learn more about him I'll want to hear what he intends to do to help entrepreneurs build a fire to get this economy back on track.
The other alternative with business cred we need not wonder about?
Radio talker Herman Cain, former CEO of "Godfather's Pizza".
Smart, Conservative, and blacker than Obama.
Pop the popcorn.

It's still too early to choose the candidate but not too early to look for what we want. I see a few that look promising but none to commit to yet.
