    It seems that American GOP voters are not satisfied with the current crop of politicians that are running for the presidency. Neil Cavuto on his show yesterday made the case that with the current crop, voters are not inspired by what they see. Voters are not impressed with their policies they want to impliment on the American people and that none of them are appealing. There is no current clear winner and that shows in the polling. This leads to the possibility of another candidate jumping in and taking air away from the other current candidates. The candidate would have to be a fresh face, bold, inspiring, have a good following who wants to restore ethics and take on corruption in DC. Corruption is something that has plagued D.C. and it is the reason things can't get done. I've seen it first hand. Cavuto stated that the current candidates haven't campaigned on taking on curruption. He is right. Right now, word is that there are hints of two possible conservatives with strong followings that have been sitting back and watching the current crop implode in the view of the discontent conservative base and are waiting for the right time to enter. I believe this to be true and it is a strong possibility that a late entrance could happen. It really isn't to late if you look at the over all picture. I personally believe that a possible forced brokered convention could happen and there is strong talk of it if a late candidate was to enter OR someone could enter and sweep the whole current field and run away with it. Your thoughts are most welcome?

    Unlikely.

    Here's the real problem. The GOP establishment decided early on that despite being a liberal, despite his overwealiming rejection in 2008, despite the fact he's lost most of the elections he's ever run in, Mitt Romney was their man.

    And even though a lot of really, really good people were out there- Thune, Jeb Bush, Mitch Daniels, Haley Barbour, Chris Christie- Most of them decided not to run.

    The few people who did run found themselves under fire by the establishment, because they had their guy. Mitt Romney. Please don't mind his crazy religion and the fact that was saying the oppossite of what he is saying now as recently as 10 years ago.

    Anyone with an reasonable IQ would not run - certainly not in '12. The economy is gonna be shit for a few more years.... who wants to deal with that shit? And carry the can for shit they can't control? Also, of course, no normal human being would run for President of this country these days. Look at the way the media treat anyone who dares to run? Every detail of your life is placed under a microscope and lied about, exaggerated, every word you utter is misrepresented and spun for ratings.

    I wouldn't put my family and friends through the kind of bullshit that passes for 'vetting' these days.

    That's not going to change in another election. The democrats have got their eye in dictatorship. What they have been doing has been working. They won't stop in four years, or in ten or in 20. Not until they are stopped.

    What person that hasn't entered has a strong following and a record of fighting corruption that could get the conservative base excited enough to break away from the current field of candidates?

    Didn't you hear obama? He said it didn't matter who the GOP candidate was. The democrats would launch the same kind of attacks.
