I can't wait for the GOP debates
The republican presidential debate should be interesting if the present group of candidates and possible candidates are still standing. I could burn my partisan hat and still not come up with a republican candidate who stands a chance to beat President Obama.
For openers, strictly for entertainment sake; I would like to see the first round be a one -on -one debate between Representative Michelle Bachmann against Donald Trump... The Tea Party queen vs. the casino king. They both love the limelight and neither knows how to run a country; I mean Donald Trump bankrupted a casino that has a 95% house odds on its side. Michelle Bachmann thinks the founding fathers freed the slaves. They better have a single microphone, welded to the floor, because I can see both of them wrestling for that precious piece of equipment, as if their words will have an impact....The GOP could have some preliminaries such as the battle of the flip- floppers' between Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney, the battle of the dull, sleepers( I mean that literally) between Mitch Daniels and Tim Pawlenty, but first; there has to be a runoff between Sarah Palin, Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum for Christian right, pro life, ex Fox News contributors title to advance to meet the winners of the bat crazy, flip flopper and the dullest of the dull. The halftime entertainment will be provided by Fred Karger and Herman Cain...Fred Karger is a retired California political consultant and the first openly gay Republican ever to run for president as well as the first GOP candidate to declare officially that he is running for the 2012 race...Herman Cain is an American newspaper columnist, businessman, political activist, and radio talk-show host from Georgia. He is best known as the former chairman and CEO of Godfather's Pizza. He is a former deputy chairman (1992–94) and chairman (1995–96) of the Federal Reserve Bank of Kansas City. Cain's newspaper column is distributed by North Star Writers Group. He currently lives in the Atlanta suburbs. I thought Herman Cain had the credentials to be a pretty formidable candidate, but then he started talking and said "The role of Muslims in America is not to convert the rest of us to the Muslim religion. That I resent. And so I push back and reject them trying to convert the rest of us. And based upon the little knowledge that I have of the Muslim religion, you know. They have an objective to convert all infidels or kill them." He reminds me of Alan Keyes but he has a better work resume.
There are always the old stand-ins like Ron Paul and Gov. Hayley Barbour but they don’t stand much of a chance but I did hear a rumor that Rand Paul will consider if his dad drops out.Now that would add a lot of possibilities to the circus match-ups.
Chris Matthews said that the same old five white men, that actually run Republican Party will probably call for a meeting sometime in the fall, to beg,bribe,or demand a way to get Governor Chris Christie, Jeb Bush or Representative Paul Ryan to be the official candidate, because, even if they lose; at least the GOP will go down with some credibility.
