From what's trending currently, this upcoming election is going to be
between Hillary and either Cruz or Trump, unless if the powerful RNC deletes
Trump from becoming the nominee. It's going to be interesting to see who is
really running the country.
There are many people running for the GOP leadership. Sad to say this
discussion is about as close to electing them as anyone in this state will come.
It is all about dollars and not about the ideals or history. Who can we swing
by the majority of voters and have them believe in that person?Our
country is hanging in a delicate balance. One congresswoman stepped up and
called out Congress about getting in or staying in bed with the banks and there
was a cry nationwide for her to run for the top whitehouse office. She dared
express something that is common sense and the population was in love with her
and her ideals.Unfortunately for our country she will not run nor
will Mitt. The majority of this list is like a pack of jackals looking for a
weakness so they can dart in and be the cause more bloodloss and more press.There will be nobody left standing that is up to the task of dethroning
Hillary if Mitt does not run
MNmamaof4 - Interesting comments about Ben Carson. You forgot to mention his
most famous (or infamous) comment to date "You know Obamacare is
really I think the worst thing that has happened in this nation since
slavery." That opinion flies in the face of today's editorial in the
Deseret News. Would you call his statement a "healthy dose of common
Don't run, Mitt! You would be the best but I doubt you could beat Hillary,
As an unapologetic Democrat, nothing would please me more than to see _any_ of
the listed Republicans, especially Mitt, get the GOP nomination. Each of them
are ridiculous on multiple levels. And to my Utah neighbors - stop
kidding yourselves about Mitt. His hints about running are intended to slow down
Jeb's fundraising and prevent the GOP nomination from being locked-up
before the primaries - nothing more.
I look at people like Jeb Bush and a thought comes to mind, "oh no I think
two Bushes was more than enough as former residents of the Whitehouse."
mrjjj69Ronald Regan lost twice before winning on the third term.
Romney's problem is not that he couldn't beat Obama, he could have, it
was people's ignorance that kept them from electing him. Misconceptions
about his religion and speculation of whether he pays taxes and his
"47%" comment nipped him in the bud. Out of everybody, he has the best
chance of beating Hilary. Hopefully the problems that plagued his 2012 election
will have subsided. Jeb Bush has a chance, yes, but he has two things hurting
him: his brother and the fact that he lacks the looks of a president. Believe it
or not, looks matter when it comes to running for the president of the USA.
@ P BundyIt's a bit confusing. Despite the fact that Cruz was
born in Canada, his mother, held US citizenship for long enough for any of her
children born out of the country to be considered US nationals (10 years). So
he is an American citizen. In fact, it was discovered last year (maybe in 2013)
that he held dual-citizenship for both the US and Canada. He formally renounced
his citizenship to Canada and is now only an American city.It's
a bit complicated, but he is 100% legal to run for POTUS, unfortunately.
Take a look at Ben Carson!He was the director of pediatric
neurosurgery at John Hopkins who started off life as a failing student in a bad
neighborhood and rose above his circumstances. He has written several books
including "America the Beautiful" and "One Nation" about his
beliefs in regards to our constitution and his plan to turn our country in a
better direction. He's got integrity, compassion, a strong work ethic and
a healthy dose of common sense. Don't give up on finding a good candidate
before the race has even started.
There are only two people I want to see on this eternal click list:Mitt
Romney and whomever he beats.
It would be great to have someone in charge who knows how to turn around failing
organizations (like our U.S. economy--and don't forget the Olympics); who
understands foreign policy (Romney was right about Russia and others laughed)
and not be an international embarrassment; who would increase national defense;
whose past isn't hidden nor shameful; who isn't ashamed of the USA and
loves this country; who will support and defend our U.S. Constitution. Topping
it off--who is a genuinely decent, caring, nice guy. If you're
just looking for a great orator and debater, you have that now("How's
that workin' for you?"--H.Cain). Don't we need more than that? It would help if the Republican Party gets behind their candidate next
time, since they didn't for Romney last time. They could have done so much
MORE to help him get elected. Their silence was ringing in all ears!
The third time has been a charm for past Presidential Republican candidates. And there's the Big bonus--he has been leading in the polls (even when
he said he wasn't running) and still is--leading in the polls!
Biden, Huckabee, Santorum, Perry, Christie all don't stand a chance. If
they do run they will drop like flies early.
So many bad options. Basically every republican sends chills down my spine. The
dems aren't much better. I really would have liked to see Brian Schweitzer
run. He was the Governor of Montana and I think fit the bill perfectly for what
America needs, I see him as kind of a Teddy Roosevelt figure who could appeal to
both sides of the aisle as he was a moderate. A democrat in Montana is a
Republican anywhere else.But somehow he lost footing last year and
hasn't been mentioned much anymore. Shame. I thought he had real potential.
I don't know why anyone continues to include Ted Cruz on these lists, he
can't run. You have to be born in the United States to be President and the
junior senator from Texas was born in Canada.
Why are there like 20 republicans on here? You really think all of them are
i haven't heard of 1/2 these people. The Rest are pretty much a joke.
Mitt Romney?? He has already lost twice. ANYBODY should of been able to
prevent obamas second term. please don't choose him, and give us 4 more
years of a democrat in the white house. this country can't afford more
"This is about the burning ambition of a guy who believes he would be a
great president. He believes he is the right guy for the job. Period. It's
not complicated."I believe that a majority of voters will agree
with this. Our future is at stake. No time for pettiness.
I am a registered Republican who can not see any of these Republicans working
for all of the American people. Can't we find someone who is more center
than off the cliff to the right? Does this war between right and left need so
much fratricide and blindly following some pseudo law or covenants that is
destructive to the middle class?
