Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

I see shades of Fred Thompson when I think of Chris Christie. In the sense that he may ultimately get talked into it but not really want to do it, and it will show

Huntsman-Rubio 2012!!!

Not so fast my friend. Headlines are nice, but the devil is in the details. As the Gov of TX it would be flat out irresponsible for him to leave Federal money to help his state on the table.

From the article:
"Texas would have balanced its budget regardless of the presence of stimulus dollars," said Lucy Nashed, Perry's deputy press secretary. "This money came from the pockets of Texas taxpayers, and we are committed to getting our fair share of these dollars, which would have otherwise been disbursed to other states."

Actually, Michele Bachmann is doing herself some good. I think she'll be the big winner tonight. Not impressed with Huntsman's decision to skip.

Bachmann will do well in Iowa, but I don't think it goes much further than that. But her rhetoric is pointed and she can raise money (at least on a state level), so she may stir it up a little. Not much of a starter IMO. The Tea Party loves her, that's for sure, but I don't think an Evangelical Christian is a proper hire in a time where middle ground is so important.

I think she could have a Huckabee like campaign. Own Iowa and then struggle to tread water the rest of the way

Thought Pawlenty was very disappointing tonight

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

I hate it when people try and act all smart by talking all fancy like. Get off your high horse Ron Paul! Slow down and talk about things the people understand!

"Ron Paul, the Texas congressman who has run for president before, did little to shake his image as a fringe candidate by talking too fast and dropping obscure subjects like "Keynesian bubble'' and "monetary policy'' into the conversation."

Romney, Bachmann dominate gracious GOP debate - Yahoo! News
