Pathetic Republican Hopefuls

It’s amazing when you look at the present field of Republicans running for president. Is this really the best of their party? If I were a Republican I would be horribly embarrassed to show these men as the best possible leaders.

In the debate Tuesday night one expected they might whip out a ruler, then whip out something else and measure that something else to see who would be the meanest son of a bitch on earth when it comes to wars and security of our country.

Their best of the worst seems now to be McCain and with all the insane flack about his recent trip to Baghdad, he comes off like a crazy man. Visions of god knows what dance in his head.

Bless the Republicans’ hearts, they are reaching down to the bottom of the barrel for candidates and in my opinion they have come up with nothing but hot air and strange thinking people. What they have to choose from is as bad or worse than they’ve had this past six and a half years. How’s that for looking pathetic?

For years, spanning multiple four-year election cycles, the Republican Party tried desperately to win over voters who weren't white, male, and Protestant. They tried every bullshit scheme they could dream up, and to date, their successes have proved to be marginal. And now, having lost control of Congress due to their stunning collective greed, hypocrisy, negligence, callousness, and plain old stupidity, they've lost their credibility as well.

That GOP bag of self-serving, cynical tricks is going to work at all this time around. So these wealthy, Wonder Bread country club candidates aren't even pretending they care about anyone else. They are not the best of their party; there are definitely better people to choose from.

But they are quite representative of it...

They will never whip something else out and measure....but they will TELL you all about their manly hugeness without actually producing the meat.

And when will they wake up that "America's Mayor" wasn't all that great a leader, with the exception of shutting down the "squeegee guys" and looking "in charge" post 9-11?

Those bloated rich guys are an embarrassment to the entire country. Rupert Murdoch is trying for a special violent reality show with this bunch.

Unfortunately, the Republican with the most experience, credibility, and vigor is not even in the race-yet.

Patricia send me an email, I'd like to ask your opinion on something.

They have to find someone weird enough or crazy enough to be willing to follow Bush's legacy. You have to dig pretty deep in the garbage to do that.

They do seem like quite a loony bunch. The other night, though, I had a horrible thought, what if one of these schmucks wins? I don't mean just their party's nomination, but the White House. I tried to put it out of my mind, but I couldn't. Sorry for creeping you out.

Ok, I really don't do the whole 'political thing'. I don't know jack so I can't hold an intelligent argument that will hold water. But...What the point in being a Republican??? I dunno, these days I think that people who drown kittens in puddles have more credibility then them. Maybe I'm wrong.

I hope this will make certain that we don't have another republican President in 08'. We need to balance the political scale after so many years of a tyrant.

These "candidates" are nothing more than a bunch of shit talking M.F'ers who don't have an OUNCE of credibility to them. How anyone could ever even think of them as President is beyond me. Just goes to show I guess that Ignorance is bliss!

I would have thought they had to look beneath the barrel to find Dubya and that miserable son of a bitch has been sleeping in the White House for more than six years now. The Democrats could very easily nominate a candidate that can't get elected.

What Robin Andrea says is a real possibility: one of these creeps can possibly win the White House. Probably Mitt Romney, which really scares me.

As long as there is a Karl Rove, they have a good shot at keeping the White House.

With this current scale of corruption, its hard to take the party seriously.

Yet, I'm glued, fascinated about what will come out of it. It's Craptastic.

Let's stop and think about this. Given the current track record of the Bush regime, and that of the 109th, given the huge deficits, two failed wars, New Orleans still in ruin, and scandal heaped upon scandal, were I a credible member of the GOP with presidential aspirations, there's no way I would run now. I'd wait four years for the memories to fade. What's running is what's left.

I will probably be voting for Rep. Ron Paul. Unlike the others in the field of Republicans and Democrats he understands what Powers are to be found Behind the Curtain. Monday I Register Republican so as to vote in the Primary in June. Late, but I'll just write him in if he has already dropped out anyways.

He polled 2nd to Romney in a post debate text message poll. On the MSNBC online poll(albeit very unscientific) he was way ahead of everybody else. Now top GOPers including the Mich Chair are trying to get him banned from future debates. In addition Faux News has been piling on Rep. Paul including a heavy hitter named Malkin. Gee, I wonder what they are afraid of?

If President Gore or Sen. Feingold runs I'll change my stance. Otherwise the DLC and others have already chosen Sen. Clinton just as they chose Sen. Kerry for '04

My worse fear is that one of those insane base panderers will be our next president. All it takes is another stolen election.

There is a large cabal of conservative Republican voters and bloggers that are pushing actor and ex-Tennessee Senator Fred Thompson to enter the race. If he does, he will probably win the nomination and the White House.

They think he's the only person at the point that can derail Rudy, whom most conservative don't like and/or trust. They are probably right. He does have gravitas and I don't think anybody can seriously question his integrity.

The only Democrat now running that I can see winning in '08 is Edwards, but if Thompson or Giuliani win the nomination, not even he has a snowball's chance in hell. The conservatives will hold their noses and vote for Rudi, and if Thompson is nominated, they would figure out a way to vote for him if they were on their deathbeds.

Almost forgot to add, Gore is the only man who would have a real shot of winning for the Democrats, but I doubt he could beat Thompson either.

To my mind, the only one to show any gumption (sorry, probably just an English word!) at all was Ron Paul, and only because he said what he believed, despite the nationalistic clamor from the audience for his blood, backed up by all the other candidates of course. I don't agree with much Paul says, but full marks for speaking out against the hypocrites. His assessment of the 9/11 incident was exactly right, even though he didn't get a chance to elaborate on his viewpoint. The irony is he's not a Republican, but a Libertarian!

Besides Ron Paul, they're all typical of the state of debate in this country. It's a little hard to imagine that I live in a country where every candidate of one of the two major political parties endorses the use of torture. And I do mean McCain, too, who said nothing when President Bush added a signing statement that supported the use of torture to anti-torture legislation.

To my mind, the Democratic debate was all just a bunch of blather, too. Obama gave a speech about foreign policy where he sounded like a Republican on Iraq.
