    If the economy remains in the tank, a Ryan/Rubio ticket might have a good chance. Christie is toast.

    I think Romney losing might end up being the best thing that could have happened to Christie.

    It for sure makes him look better. Christie's speech at the RNC was more to prop himself up than Willard, plus throwing him under the bus with Sandy was a wise political move to try to show he's not a partisan hack. He knew willard was going to lose, and to pretend he's not the far right, loud mouth idiot most people know him by was a good PR stunt to use later down the road.

    I agree. I can't believe everybody dismisses Jeb Bush so readily. Is the Bush name that toxic? He seems like his own man and not his brother or father. I'd be more worried about him than any of the others.

    There's another Bush in the pipeline that has a brighter political future.

    Whoever gets the nomination. These days, the way the GOP is going, could be anybody.

    You're right, let me try again.

    None, the GOP are pieces of shit that can go to hell

    The only one whom got an advantage for 2016 is whomever the democratic nomination will be :up:
