It sure as hell isn’t Chris Christie! He needs to switch his party affiliation to the party that most closely represents his beliefs (Hint: It ain’t Republican.)

"Bill O'Reilly posted a poll on billoreilly.com last week asking viewers, Who do you foresee as emerging to lead the Republican Party?

Rand Paul

Chris Christie

Marco Rubio

Someone else"

Nothing like salting the contents of the question.

Any surprise that Rand Paul comes in first? Where is my man Ted Cruz?

Hardly surprising from O'Reilly.

Ted Cruz is the only name I even look at anymore. The rest are eRinos.

Another RINO will be the candidate. So far the track history is Bob Dole, GW Bush, Mitt Romney, John McCain. All have been for Big Government. GW was supposedly a Moderate but the rest have been liberals in disguise.

IMHO, the big cities are electing these folks and the big city values are not my values. The big cities run the (Liberal) debates, the big cities have the vast majority of the votes and I have had enough.

It's Tea Party for me from now on.

Your link says "bill oreilly" but goes to http://www.dailypaul.com/295005/rand-paul-winner-of-bill-oreilly-fox-news-poll.

What's up with that?

http://www.billoreilly.com/poll-center currently goes to a Paul - Christie - Rubio - other poll, which is taking votes but not showing results (gotta tune in — but I don't have a TeeVee. Screw O'Reilly!).

The word “lead” and “Republican” cannot objectively exist in the same sentence. Perhaps there is a leader out there that also happens to be a Republican but if the Republican party learns of him he is certain to be trounced upon, slandered, dissed, smeared and rejected by the party establishment.

What difference does it make? Any good principled candidate will be a real conservative and will be outside the Republican Party. Actually the only one in place for the Republican nomination is Jeb Bush. No one else seems to be actually running yet and a serious candidate has to be running throuth a couple of election cycles before the one that gets him tne Nom.Even Reagan did that. He ran hard for 10-12 years, getting his support lined up. Tthe Conservatives are dithering.

Lead? Trying not to laugh. No one I am going to care about. There are no leaders in this republican party. I am inclined to sit back and let the dem-o-criminals take it all until it all comes tumbling down. Then perhaps real patriot leaders will step up. That’s even doubtful. This war is lost. GOP are Whigs to me. Think for a moment where we might be if Fred had stuck it out, smacked down McPain, and then washed the walls with Obama. He caved. Nope, there are no leaders any longer. My hope has changed. Just going to teach my kids to survive the storms.

I personally don’t care what a guy looks like. Heck, I voted for Perot, sorry to say ... but given the choice we had at the time ....

Bolton is a good talker; but is he a leader? And even if he is, he’ll never get past GO.

Might as well tell Weiner to switch parties and put him up. At least it would be fun to watch. /Sarc

Ok. I didn’t watch more after hearing that plus I was wary Karl Rove might be the next guest and that was too much to endure.

Bolton would make a better Sec. of Defense but folks are scared of him and his T. Roosevelt moustache. He is a true conservative but no GOP lackey and here, he may be seen as a renegade, like Palin. I think he talks plain sense but maybe to honest to run?

Ted Cruz is one of the very few people in Washington willing to stand by his principles regardless of the political cost. That kind of leadership is rare. We could do a whole lot worse than him.

These are designed to give prominence to half a dozen or more candidates so the primary vote will again get split.

Conservatives need to settle on only one candidate going forward into the primaries. That candidate might not even have emerged yet.

What is needed is a pre-primary means of narrowing down to one conservative candidate.

My first Choice is Rick Santorum, second would be Michele Bachmann. My third and really excited about would be Louis Gomez. Any of those three would be perfect. In fact a ticket with two out of three would be incredible. All the rest mentioned are blah.

While I think we have to be very careful not to become isolationist in the 1930s mode, Rand Paul’s message of a reduced global military footprint and, most importantly greatly limiting spying and totalitarian surveillance-—particularly as younger people are concerned-—is a national winner.

The GOP is dead and is no longer a viable mechanism for selecting a national candidate.

They will promote that turd Christie or Jeb Bush and it will be their last national election.

“Louis Gomez” ??

I’m guessing that it’s Texas Congressman Louis Gohmert you’re thinking of.

He’s a good man.

I doubt if he becomes a presidential candidate, though.

Chris Christie ... He is the perfect candidate, exactly what the republicans want. Pals with Obama, ok on immigration and gays...a good, solid middle-of-the-roader that will get all the Independent votes and Hispanic votes. The perfect choice...just like McCain and Romney. (Wanna' bet I'm wrong?)
