Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

Of 415 historians who expressed a view of President Bush’s administration to this point as a success or failure, 338 classified it as a failure and 77 as a success. (Moreover, it seems likely that at least eight of those who said it is a success were being sarcastic, since seven said Bush’s presidency is only the best since Clinton’s and one named Millard Fillmore.) Twelve percent of all the historians who responded rate the current presidency the worst in all of American history, not too far behind the 19 percent who see it at this point as an overall success.

Maybe "monetary policy" is an obsure subject.....

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

I wouldn't underestimate Bachmann at all. If she does well in Iowa or outright wins, which is possible, that almost certainly puts her in the discussion for VP. In a way that Sarah Palin wasn't, because Bachmann is a sitting member of Congress and voters are getting to actually know her and her policy positions as opposed to parachuting into the campaign in the final stages like Palin did. And if she can do well in Iowa, I would expect her to do well in South Carolina too.

I think minimizing gaffes and staying away stuff like where is New Hampshire (sarcasm) will help her a lot. I dare say her biggest asset is that she's authentic and that goes a long, long ways when people are picking candidates.

I don't know if there are any TPaw fans here, but if that guy can't look Mitt Romney in the eye and shoot straight about healthcare, then he sure as hell can't shoot straight with a dictator who wants to wipe us off the map.

Stick a fork in a Newt, what a disaster.

I predict Bachmann will win Iowa and shake things up in S.C. So far she's run a pretty decent campaign. I seriously doubt Trump would have done this well without any drama.

Re: Meet The Candidates: 2012 GOP Thread

So Jon Huntsman is officially in, but honestly I just don't see him defeating Mitt Romney in any of the early states, much less winning a general election. There's something very manufactured about him. It's still very early, we'll see. His roll out was very blah.

Rick Perry still might jump in. I'm sure they're doing some internal polling right now testing the waters. My gut says he won't, but the longer he drags it out the more difficult it will be to organize a serious field team, tap big donors, and get some traction in Iowa and N.H.

I'm not sure about that. Huntsman is the second coming of Ronald Reagan and Republicans don't even know it.

Honestly, there's nothing special about Romney and if there's anyone that's manufactured I would pick him out of the lineup.
