    Trump 26 percent
    Huckabee 17 percent
    Mitt Romney 15
    Newt Gingrich 11
    Sarah Palin 8
    Ron Paul 5
    Michelle Bachman and Tim Pawlenty have 4 percent each

    I can't foresee anything that would cause me to vote for ANY of these clowns.

    Are there any other viable choices that the MSM is neglecting to report on???
    :confused:

    Gary Johnson.....Herman Cain.

    They come as close as anybody the GOP could throw out there, whose name isn't Ron Paul, that I'd marginally consider voting for.

    Just curious which of those you listed you feel are as inexperienced as Barry was during the Dim primaries last go-round.

    Have they announced?
    I've seen a bit of Gary Johnson and like what I see (plus that's my nephew's name) :D

    Chris Christie would be a good choice, as long as the social conservative wing of the party could stomach him (they can't).

    Look for Christie in 2016 during an open election. The Dems will need someone new as well,as I don't see Biden tryng to run then. Hell, they may replace Biden with the heir apparent in 2012 anyway.

    Trump, and the last 3 as far as "executive experience"
    The last three have legislative experience.

    For the record, however, it wasn't Barry's experience I was concerned with.
    I researched his voting record. THAT is what I was worried about.


    Now.
    Do you have an answer to the op or are ya just here to start shit?

    My barber, Melvin, is going to announce here pretty soon. I think he will make a great President. He also gives a very good haircut, so, when he "clips" us, he'll really clip us.

    How about THIS....

    I'LL announce MY candidacy for the Republican nomination (even though I'm not a member of the party). I'm sure THAT would make the list you posted look much more appetizing to choose from. :evil:
