    If you thought Obama vs McCain or Obama vs Romney were weak contests, you haven't seen anything yet like 2016 is starting to develop.

    I have vote third party before twice and will gladly do it again this time.

    I liked when Texas had a drought and he urged a big public prayer session to end the drought.

    And, instead of rain, they got a bunch more drought.

    I think the fact that Rick Perry thinks he could win says a lot about the dismal levels of optimism people have for Jeb Bush's chances at winning verses Hillary.

    Yes, weak contests. McCain and especially Romney should have both been able to win against Obama.

    Would love to see a third party candidate come in from right field and take it away from the billion dollar candidates.

    He just refused to shake his President's hand unless the President had a meeting with him! He got 15 minutes in a helicopter. They should have kicked him out halfway!

    That already has happened in the past...in 1992 when Clinton won with 42% of the votes.

    The atmosphere ahead of the 2008 election which pretty much guaranteed a Dem win is so much more prevalent now, and it's so much more sooner in its happening.

    Essentially the 2016 election is the GOP's to lose. They just have to put a halfway reasonable candidate in the mix and run a better than average campaign.

    I would normally be befuddled by your opinion, but if this administration has shown me anything it is that Dem supporters denial is only rivaled by their delusions.

    Hillary is damaged goods and if she jumps into the fray she will get the Dem nom.

    and oh what fun we will have when she does...
