rodguy posed a question to be last week — which household name Pubbie would I want to see running.

I have been wrestling with an answer for a week and still come up with zip, nada, none.

Surely, out of the 30 governors the GOP now has, they can find one good one to run. I oppose any ‘senator’ and most ‘reps’ — legislators tend to make poor executives.

But, again, for 2016, the conservatives need to wise up, quit chasing after 4 or 5 semi-conservatives, thus splintering their support, and letting the GOPe selectee slip through.

I agree, but who? Like you I cannot come up with a single name.

I would say Sarah Palin but I don't think she will ever really run. Big media's mafia hit on her was successful. I don't think she will turn it around in the minds of the sheeple. And becoming a TV reality show star cemented the meme that she's a light weight. I argue for her with others, but they will not change their minds.

Read this thread: Republicans, 2016: In full swing (At least 15 Republicans privately contemplating 2016 campaign)

Frankly, I'm not impressed by any of these names. Maybe Paul Ryan, but I don't see how we can beat the coalition of democrats and media acting together so completely.

My next worry is that the democrats and RINOs like McCain and Graham, along with the full propaganda weapons of the media, will give us illegal alien Amnesty. GOP-e will be cowed into it by charges of RACISM. If that happens, we'll see 10 million or more democratic votes for the forseeable future.

My take has always been either Palin or Rubio.Can't see anyone else with their qualities.

Those two are the most charismatic leaders I can come up. That's absent a new player that can become a household name in the "minutes" that we have before a major campaign which should have started November 7th.
