    I could see Walker being a good candidate. Jindal, I seem to remember heavily dropping off in Lousiana for some reason. It sounds to me like he could have some problems. Mitch Daniels and Brian Sandoval are another two I think could be better than Christie.
    I think you might add the new Indiana Governor Pence and Kasich if he wins re-election this year from Ohio. Daniels has pretty much closed the door and I keep forgetting about Sandoval. Here is the scoop on Jindal:

    Jindal's popularity outlook

    Last spring Governor Jindal's job performance ratings plunged to an all-time low of 38% because of severe budget cuts to the Charity Hospital System and similar cuts to health care services and higher education. Current state revenue projections point to a budget surplus rather than additional budget cuts in 2014. If Governor Jindal has enough dollars to begin reinvesting in health care and higher education, his job performance ratings could return to the fifties.
    This Reform Party member thinks it is high past time that we start electing Americans to congress and the presidency who put America first and their political party further down the line. But for way too long we have been electing Republicans and Democrats who happen to be Americans instead of Americans who happen to be Republicans and Democrats.

He's acerbic towards his opposition, and fails utterly to even give them the benefit of good intentions. "Independents" and "moderates" who think they like him now might start revising their opinion the fourth or fifth time he calls them a bunch of racist idiots for opposing his immigration policies.
    I don't know much about Christie, but I dislike him because of a radio ad he probably had nothing to do with.



    On a more serious note, I cannot think of anyone I feel at all motivated to vote for in the next presidential election, but then it is a year or so away...
    The thing is, I haven't liked any of the candates for either major party for years now...I voted for McCain because I thought he'd be at least better than Obama, but last election I just couldn't bring myself to vote for Romney.

    If the next repub candidate is more of the same....well lets just say I'm steadily becoming less and less supporting of the R's.

    No...most voters are average intelligence at best...except for the fanatically partisan ones, they will have mostly forgotten this by 2016.

    Too bad, that useless jerk would make a pathetic POTUS (IMO)...but, I think that about almost every candidate I have seen in every federal election, so....

The ones who do this are your hard core extreme left or right partisans. I used the term RINO as that is how a lot of Republicans view him.

    I personally like Christie and if the contest was between him and Clinton, I would vote for Christie.


    I like him too, but couldn't vote for him..

    Not at all. One is an adept observer of American politics to know how easily influenced the voting public are about such matters. I made no comment at all to infer that it would influence me. His politics alone eliminate him as a contender for me. The Republican party has enough hacks as it is.

    That is the beauty of politics. Each of us has our own values and thoughts. Except for those who follow the two major parties and buy into what each party says 100%, most of us make up our minds on the issues, on candidates, on what we think of our elected officials based on our experiences, how their policies or stances effect us, whether we think they are right or wrong, on our pocket books and on our individual values and sometimes morals. For each individual, for each person there is differences and those differences on points of view is as valid for one as for others. What each of think is right for them.

    Contrary to most partisan's view, neither of the our two major parties are trying to destroy America. Both are trying to make her strong and as prosperous in the future. Their paths and ideas on how to get there are very different. People will see one or the other or even both parties as wrong as all get out in their path and ideas. But that doesn't mean either is our to destroy us and our beloved country.

    Let me stop here before I write a book, I think you get where I am coming from.

    We have learned with the current administration that anything that happens under him, has no reflection on him.

    Now what he should have done is promoted the guy that did it so he could gain respect from the left.

    What if the hotel had been called something else like the Hilton.

    Would we be saying "Bridgeton"?

    The Watergate scandal had nothing to do with water, so adding gate to all scandals doesn't make sense.
