My Vote For President March 28, 2011

The time is drawing near when we will begin to see the contenders emerging for the Republican nomination for President. A favorite website has a poll going showing Sarah Palin way out in front with their readers. Since opinions are like a**holes… we all got one, I thought I’d weigh in.

Gov. Sarah Palin

Gov. Sarah Palin 47, former Gov. of Alaska. I love her, she’s my kind of conservative, she’s smokin’ hot and did I mention she’s smokin’ hot?  She shouldn’t run because she can’t win. Reason, her voice. She’s got a tinny, whiny, Alaskan/Minnesotan/Fargo twang  going on that is the reason people call her dumb. It’s a horrible reason but it’s a fact.
She needs to stay being the Right’s biggest fund raiser and King maker.

Mitch Daniels

Mitch Daniels. 62, Gov. of Indiana, past OMB Director. Nicely conservative. No name recognition and he slightly resembles George W. Bush.  Never gonna win.

Herman Cain

  Herman Cain. 65, columnist, businessman, talk show host. Staunchly conservative, got all the creds for my vote. He’s black and while that makes him an equal to Obama in the race race, the country is not ready to have another black president right after the nightmare we have now. Great VP choice though.

Newt Gingrich

Newt Gingrich. 67, former Speaker of the House. Brainy-ack with too much baggage. ‘Ol Newt couldn’t keep it in his pants earlier in life and that’s gonna cost him the chance to be prez. Married three times, he is better served as a Secretary of State or VP.

Haley Barbour

Haley Barbour. 63, Gov. of Mississippi. Just one earful of his southern accent and you’ll agree he’ll never get elected. That and the fact he’s obese and was born in Yazoo, MS…

Mike Huckabee

 

Mike Huckabee. 55, former Gov. of Arkansas. He’s a bible thumpin’ righty who is way too religious for me and the masses. Name sounds too close to huckleberry.

 

 

 

Tim Pawlenty

Tim Pawlenty, 50, former Gov. of Minnesota.  Not enough name recognition though he has the right conservative creds. Somebody’s gonna make fun of his name and equate him to polenta…

Michele Bachmann

Michele Bachmann, 54, member of Congress, Hmmm, what do I say here. She’s a big time Tea Party favorite but I fear she’s got too big an ego for her current stage in politics. A Sarah Palin wanna-be without the wow factor. Another great conservative who needs to wait in the wings and support the only person I think can beat Obama and that is….

Mitt Romney

Mitt Romney, 64, former Gov. of Massachusetts. It won’t be easy but if Mitt hires a killer PR firm, admits he was wrong on his health care plan in MA and stays solidly right of center on EVERY issue, he can beat Obama. He’s gotta deal with the Morman thing which is absurd in this day and age but it’s a fact. I think it can be done with GOOD PR. Good looking man and family. The Right needs to do the right thing and crown him the Rep. nominee now so he can start attacking Obama without a bruising nomination fight.
That’s my two cents worth.

Well put, and well thought. Just as Trump has the pop culture forum for the moment, albeit it is fast unraveling, don’t count out Herman Cain. Your astute observations about the other candidates are right on the money. Remember that Obama was not a true contender until late in the last race. It’s a popularity contest at this time in history, simply due to his accomplishments in business and his values, couples with his race, he is a contender that has yet to realize his full potential. For the record, I am a white, Canadian-American, and so the race issue is relevant to me as an observation, not an opinion.
