And I'll root for the one candidate who is determined breaking Russia's economic neck and seriously brings the goal of regime change there on the table -- while at the same time being determined to support America's NATO allies in Europe, to save our whiny, sorry asses once again. No matter if Dem or Rep.

    So I can't cast a vote in this poll until I know their stances on Russia better. This is not the time for the slightest bit of appeasement.
    Easy answer: Romney in 2012 argued that Russia was the US' greatest geopolitical foe, and needed to be contained. The response of the Obama administration (whose foreign policy was then headed by Hillary, the presumptive Democrat nominee) was to make fun of him, arguing that he was, like, so outdated and stuff, and, like, relations with Russia had been reset and we, like, only had to, like, give them space, and be flexible, and stuff, and they, like, would then have the security to be reasonable, and stuff.


    So.... with a few exceptions (Rand Paul comes to mind), the vast majority of the people on that list are going to be harder on Russia than their opposition.

    Of the possible GOP candidates, these are the ones I think stand the best chance of actually winning in 2016 should they run:

    John Kasich
    Jeb Bush
    Mike Pence
    Rob Portman
    Scott Walker
    Mitt Romney
    and possibly should he actually decide to run, Jeff Flake.

    I don't get the Republican primary voter mindset that makes them think some total nutjob like Ben Carson would stand even the most remote chance of ever winning a general election in today's America.
    Yeah, how crazy to think that an erudite, cerebral, minority candidate would be able to win a general election despite lacking any serious national political experience, huh? Cause that would never happen.


    Bobby Jindal would be a good President, but I don't know if he is able to maintain the commanding presence necessary to win a primary. Last election, however, the Democrats didn't even bother to run anyone against him.

    Scott Walker won three elections in four years in a purple state while taking on public sector unions. He's proven he can win in purple area's with conservative ideas, but without taking the kinds of ideological positions that make him unpalatable to the base (Jeb Bush, Chris Christie). He's the best bet, really.

    How would Palin do better in the GE if she doesnt have the ability to win the GOP nomination? I could see that argument if it was a moderate or left center GOP candidate but a far right winger like Palin that comment seems ignorant at best.

    Because Palin has a rabid fan base. She would rile up the masses and get them excited in ways that the current hum-drum candidates can not. Problem for her is that she doesn't have enough fans to win the GE....

    If she doesnt have enough fans to win the GOP nomination there is no way she could do the best in the general election since there isnt anyone outside the GOP that would vote for her.

    You are missing the point. Have you seen the latest polling for the GOP nod? Romney is outpolling all of them...by wide margins. Why? Because nobody likes any of the current choices. None of them has any capacity to excite the electorate. The only thing that is going to bring the right-wingers out will be their hatred of Hilary.

    Any doubt....watch his deer in the headlights response speech a few years back.

    I agree with Portman on most issues. I have known for at least 7 years his son was gay and I figured he'd change on gay marriage. His "pro-life" position is a bit contrived: his family were Pro choice republicans long before that was popular. His two biggest backers in Cincinnati, RIchard Farmer (CINTAS-uniform company), a conservative catholic and Carl Lindner Jr (United Dairy Farmers, Chiquita brand foods), a conservative Baptist, caused his "change"

    He's pretty good on gun issues, very good on taxes and budget issues, is brighter than most of the other candidates (Dartmouth and U of Michigan Law school) and actually is not in politics to get rich (he was already wealthy before he gained office)

    far smarter than Hildabeast
