Keep shilling for amnesty, Rand, and that might well be the case.
Wonderful, dumbass number 1.
Do the Republicans have anybody to run in 2016? It’s early but I’m getting concerned already. We cannot afford to run another stiff or a washed-up “my turn” old man like a Dole or McCain.
Title is misleading.
The field will be more conservative than in years past, and will have more powerful debaters.
I honestly think the debate cycle for our 2016 primary will be the most interesting in recent memory.
1) Sarah Palin.
2) Ted Cruz.
3) ... let’s get this started.
I stay away from libertarians of any stripe.
He won’t get my vote.
I certainly hope so. I guess one positive to take away from the last election is that watered-down conservatives did poorly and there were some true conservatives that won some key local races. Let’s hope that the lessons have been learned for 2014 and 2016.
Rand Paul, Ted Cruz, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, __________?
Jeb Bush, Chris Christi
The first four would present themselves as conservative, whether or not they are. But again, we have a possible field that would split conservative votes and allow blue state Republican primary voters to pick our candidate.
Conservatives and non-RINOs need to settle on one or two conservative candidates before the primaries, or we’ll have another RINO.
Hubris. Wanton, unabashed hubris. Get yourself elected Governor of Kentucky for a term. You might be ready to run for POTUS afterwards.
Of the last crop I would vote for Bachmann, Cain, or Santorum again.
I have a suspicion that he will be like his Daddy and run every 4 years.
Some of his talk does sound pretty good, and his filibuster made waves.
He is more preferable than JebB, Christie, Rubio, Ryan.
I'll say. Very odd, given the quote from Sen Paul on which the article is based:
"For now, (what) we know for sure is we're going to run for the U.S. Senate," he said, according to a report from The Independent. "The other decision can come later."
Those are good choices, but the “retread factor” would hinder them I think.
Nah. Looking for someone who did not support Romney. In the end, they are all Republicans. Maybe a third party conservative who will restore America’s economy and end world policeman role.
There is absolutely no way Sarah Palin could stand up to a debate with Ted Cruz. None.
