If the 2016 Republican Primary Was Today.....

If the 2016 Republican Primary was held today (assuming We the Conservatives don't form a third party out of disgust), who would you like to see as the nominee to face Hitlery Clinton ?

If the 2016 primary was held today, I would go with Mike Lee.

Well let’s list the NOTS..

Not Paul Ryan, Marco Rubio, Christie,

and not old Botoxed Willard...

and who said that Hillary will be allowed to win the nomination ???

The Islamics are running the White House, the Democrat Party..

No woman will get to be POTUS if they can stop her...

Watch the Islamist Keith Ellison run in 2016 or 2020..

With no end of Holyland money to back him...

I could see Ted Cruz easily as well.

Agreed 100% on the nots....

You may have a point about Hitlery, who swears up and down that she has no intention of running. (I know lying is in her DNA, but for argument’s sake, let’s pretend she’s telling the truth.)

That would leave either the governor of Maryland, Inner Party Member Martin O’Malley as the front runner. O’Malley is a miserable socialist with a crappy record as governor.

Allen West would be awesome, too. I could could easily vote for him. Ditto for Walker. I wasn’t really all that impressed with Rick Perry in 2012, but perhaps he learned from his mistakes. Then again, I would take Perry over stiffs like John McLame and Mitt Trotsky any day of the week and twice on Sunday.

I was torn between Lee, Rand Paul, and Ted Cruz. All three are cut from the same cloth and I hope all three don’t end up facing each other.

Any of them would be fine with me, but Rand would be stuck with his whackjob father’s baggage.

I would prefer a governor, either current or former. A governor that is as for from the northeast as possible. That only leave us with two possibilities. Palen and Perry. I also think these are probably the only two that can win in 2016. By the way, I do NOT think Hillary will be the Democrat candidate. I have no Idea who it will be, but I just have this itchy feeling that it will not be Hillary.

That man was the governor of my beloved Florida and he was a RINO disaster.

There are millions of Republicans. Do we really need another Bush ?

He’s on my “No way in Hell” list along with Governor Lap Band in New Jersey.

I’d go along with Cruz without the least bit of hesitation. for this little exercise, I went with Mike Lee, but I may have to change my vote here.

(It’s my game, I can change my the rules any time I want.)

That would be awesome. The collective IQ of the party would go up at least 50 points.

Mclame and Grahamnesty (the “Same Sex Senators” as Mark Levin calls them) are utter disasters.

Palin or Cruz.

That’s about it for me (other than a few less prominent lights like West, Gohmert, and such). Rand Paul has a pretty good track record to date, but I remain wary of him, and expect to be disappointed and turned off if/when he might veer too far in his father’s direction. He’s already pretty wobbly on amnesty.

So, again, Palin or Cruz. If neither are on the ticket in 2016, the likelihood of me voting GOP is rather slim at best. The rancid Republican leadership would go through hell and high water to prevent either of them appearing on the ticket anyway, so it’s a rather moot point.

Rand has his nutty father’s baggage. Is that fair ? No, but Dr. Newsletter can and probably would sink him.

I picked Mike Lee, but I’d be all for Ted Cruz. Heck, I may even change my vote in our little exercise here.

Correct me if I am wrong (as I normally am) but I recall hearing Cruz was from Canada and thus can’t hold the office of president.

Then again, that didn’t stop Obama.

Cruz. Of the ones being discussed, I think he is the mst likely to win. He as smart ad they come. Passionate. Courageous. Calm. He’s been in front of the Supreme Court and has the calm credibility needed.

“I would prefer a governor, either current or former.”

That’s always a good idea. To throw a name out there, how about Mary Fallin, the governor of Oklahoma ?

Maybe this time, we can pick a candidate that would win his or her home state. I’m no expert like Tokyo Rove or anything, but that’s always a step in the right direction.

I like him, too. But I think name recognition would be a problem. (Please forgive me for sounding like Tokyo Rove.)

However-—

I could see definitely see him as Attorney General.
