    I do as well, and I also find Ted Cruz a compelling speaker. But that does not in any way suggest I would ver vote for either. To me both made sense for the Teddy Roosevelt era of doing things

    You can calmly spout crazy ideas but that doesnt make them rational

    Expected. Rand Paul is officially in the race. Not a big announcement like Cruz, just a little posting on his website, but he is officially in the race. [/FONT][/COLOR]
    It doesn't matter. rand paul won't be allowed by the RNC to win the nomination, along w/Cruz or Jindal. . .

    . . .a fact which is obvious to everyone except the (clueless) bulk of GOP primary voters who actually believe their vote makes a difference

    Re: Rand Paul announces presidential run

    Huntsman's daughter recalled today just how bad their roll-out was in 2012.
    My best memory of Jon was when he was the only one to raise his hand that he would be for a 10-for-1 swap of cuts to revenues.
    Even Sen. Coburn put out an 8-to-1 swap in his back-in-black plan of 2011, trashed by both bases, and which have us balanced by now.
    With that, Kasich is the one GOP for whom I could vote .

    I still keep thinking I'm going to wake up and find out that Jon Huntsman is declaring his intent. Dare to dream...

    I only think his foreign policy is off from where it should be. A lot of the other things he's said make sense to me. I don't pay attention to the religious stuff (from either side).

Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker, who placed fifth in 2014's poll, floated to a strong second place– 21.4 percent–continuing a run of successes with conservative activists that started last month at the Iowa Freedom Summit.

    How do I know, Because BO peep was a Senator who couldn't prove himself as a Senator Before he made the jump. Just like Paul and Cruz too. Oh and being partisan isn't being a Hack. Except when seen by those that Lean left.....and Way out far left Hoping for Utopia and Heaven on Earth. You Socialists!
    And when Rubio comes out, we'll have the three stooges--or the three blind mice.
    Now you know what McConnell meant when saying he had a caucus full of Presidential contenders with which to deal.

    While the establishment wants a governor, such as with the Adelson summit--Kasich, Christie, Walker, Bush .

    Yeah, Huntsman had a really bad campaign here. Bad staff, bad message....damn shame, too. He was my guy.

    I like Kasich. I wish he'd think about tossing himself into the mix.

    Re: Rand Paul announces presidential run

    He is--his Vegas odds have dropped from 75/1 to 50/1 and I'll throw a Franklin at him.
    He's got the credentials in a hugely important state--Ohio--where the GOP convention is.
    He expanded Medicaid and then won his state last year by over 30 points.
    I think he learned from his Union mess when he first came in.
    He now projects himself as the "normal" candidate.
    Plus, Polgara likes him .

    Cool, with Polgara's support, he's got a leg in.
