  1. Seek certainly had to brush the cobwebs off to find this one. BUT…it’s not too early to start the ball moving!!!We have a super steep hill to climb & in just 2 years another election! Another chance to score bit time. Re-elections seem to bring out an effort to actually listen & act on ‘why’ they got elected the first time!! Put them on notice NOW while you’re vetting others. (there just might be a Ted Cruz in your neighborhood)

  2. Tom Tancredo is the one candidate, announced or otherwise, whom I would support for president. He’s the only one among the GOP pack with the guts to say things about mass Third World immigration (i.e., the need to end it) that are banned from polite company. Go, Tom, go!

  3. How did Sarah do in the conference poll?

    • The full results: Sarah Palin 3%

      Texas Rep. Ron Paul: 30 percent
      Former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney: 23 percent
      Former New Mexico Gov. Gary Johnson: 6 percent
      New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie: 6 percent
      Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich: 5 percent
      Former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty: 4 percent
      Minnesota Rep. Michele Bachmann: 4 percent
      Indiana Gov. Mitch Daniels: 4 percent
      Former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin: 3 percent
      Former talk show host Herman Cain: 2 percent
      Former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee: 2 percent
      Former Pennsylvania Sen. Rick Santorum: 2 percent
      South Dakota Sen. John Thune: 2 percent
      U.S. Ambassador to China Jon Huntsman: 1 percent
      Mississippi Gov. Haley Barbour: 1 percent
      Others: 5 percent
      Undecided: 1 percent

  4. Really? Mike Huckabee??? We’re doomed.

    • I don’t think Huckabee will run. He has too much of a good thing going. Ron can’t win the primary and I hope Mitt can’t.

      Right now I’m finding more people that I don’t want to see run than I can find to support. Seems like it starts this way every time then we end up with McCain or some crap.

      • I hear ya both. Mitt is a flip-floppy, McCain-like, say anything candidate.

        Paul is just way out there on some things and I can’t support him.

        I’m looking at Mitch Daniels, Maybe Pawlenty – I’m still looking around. It’s early yet.

        My definitely nots:
        – Newt
        – Ron Paul
        – Romney

      • Gary Johnson is quite a viable condidate, IMO. Proven fiscal hawk/ budget chopper, been out of politics for a bit, strong solid cons. creds. Check him out here at CDN Lets us know of anything we may have missed on him, pros or cons.
