Next President and why

I am not quite sure yet as to who I would vote for President in the next election. So far I don't like any of the choices on either side. Who do you think would be the best pick and why? I see one getting votes just because he is black...I see one just because they are a woman... who and why?...this might help me with my choice. opinions anyone? Who do you think would stand up to the rest of the world?

Hey skeeter, not sure I can help you with that decision. I'm not voting for either one...

Seriously, maybe Thompson. I haven't heard many conservative ideas so far.

If I vote it will be for Fred Thompson. Even if I have to write him in on the ballet.

My 2 cents.

It's simple.

Vote for the Republican of your choice in the Primary (mine will be for Fred).

Then, in November, vote for whoever or whatever the Republicans nominate. (I'd rather elect a syphillitic baboon than Hillary or Obama.)

More than likely....this be the plan!

Isn't it kind of sad what the nation has come to. I would be willing to bet that Bill Gates could run for President at this point and win by a landslide. There has got to be a ton of better people than what we have as candidates, but because politics has become such a dirty job, nobody worth anything is willing to get involved with it. I mean, really, it is just so sad when most of the nation cannot get excited about a single candidate, and the candidates have to resort to TV personalities (e.g., Oprah) and their family (e.g., Hilary) to run their campaign. I'm surprised that more of them haven't resorted to it.

Well lets see what we got here.

D's.

Hillary and Osamma, two peas from the same pod. Differences. Ones Black the other White. Ones a male, the other is a female (almost). other than that, same o same o.

John Edwards, tries to sound like an old Southern Democrat. Misses the mark by 25 yards. Nobody else left.

Republicans. McCann. when first elected to the senate a good man. Since then has lost his way in the jungle.

Romney. Poor little rich boy and a bad image.

Guilliani. Vacuums with a great propensity. Might carry the vote in NY, PA and a couple more big eastern States. Then he fizzles.

Fred. Needs to get more active and put more drive in his campaign, but a good man. Just too low key. Which is what we might need at this juncture.

Ron Paul. Ain't got him figured out yet. A constitutionist. Maybe a bit off the deep end.

Huckabee. A true politician, can play dirty, after all he learned from two of the best in the business, Hillary and Bill. Lots of drive and energy. And tough.

If the vote were tomorrow I'd be stuck somewhere between Huckabee and Rockys syph stricken Baboon.

Best wishes, Bill

I have a feeling Huckabee wants to be VP to Clinton. I can see him running for Pres but then sucking up to Clinkton just in case. That leaves him out in my book. Do we need someone that is going to be low key or someone that will say to the world if you bother us in America we will eliminate you from the face of the earth?

That's a bit far-fetched, don't you think, since Huckabee is running for the Republican nomination and Clinton for the Democratic slot? Politics makes for strange bedfellows, but that would be a stretch.

True, but neither Huckabee nor McCain are conservatives. Heck, Lieberman was more of a conservative than either of them. All they'd have to do would be change parties, and they'd be right at home.

Thompson is not one of the mouth-frothing, yapping, dogfighting furball of candidates. He's calm, rational, thoughtful, articulate and deeply conservative. Even without that last word, doesn't that sound like EXACTLY the kind of person you want as President?

The next President will nominate at least one new Supreme Court Justice, may have to go to war with Iran, will still be dealing with the war on terror, and certainly will have a war with Congress about the economy. And I haven't even mentioned guns. Let's make sure that person is sensible...and conservative.

What I find so amazin is that most all the candidates are like hippies. They do whatever feels good at the time, not thinkin of what might be goin on next year, it's all love, flowers and crap.....until we get a bomb dropped on our pansy asses.
They wanna represent change today...but what about 3 years from now. This so called "change", who's best interest is it in?
Obama, Hillary and Julianna ( i spelt that correctly in my book) are all pansy ass sissies who couldn't lead the overtakin of a McDonald's with a bunch of fat kids on welfare.
We'll all be a bunch of disarmed sissies beggin Iran and N Korea not to take our minivans if we let those fools in office. Oh wait, maybe Oprah could send em the book of the month as a peace treaty....
I could go on and on, but I wont...I'll git back on track and say that the southern democrat is no more...just as the president for the average joe and pride in the US is no more. There is no pride.
That bothers me...but anyway...I gotta stop preachin like it's Sunday mornin...
Ole Fred is tops so far...Romney is crap. Seen that in MI. OK Michiganders...what's gonna bring MI back to life?? Well, let's start with the big 3. How ya gonna get em back makin all them cars & trucks?? People gotta buy em.
Unless that fool can stop foreign cars from comin into this country...the big 3 will never return. You can blame the American people for that...and he can promise no such thing to MI's economy. Yet, he won MI based on his promises to fix the economy there.
It just goes to show ya how ignorant he is, and how easy it is to seduce voters these days. No president, jackass or elephant ass will let America rely on America for even half of it's products. Why? Cause on counta they are asses no matter how ya look at it.

Huckleberry (yes, that was on purpose too)...I'm not to sure what to make of him yet...I'm still studyin on him. He leaves a bad taste in my mouth for some reason...and I caint say I know why.
Ole Fred however...he seems to have a calm about him that we need and he seems be the best of the bunch. The fact that the supports the second amendment didnt hurt him none either
And I like his immigration plan...if he actually puts it to use.

Lilred, Rocky and I have all mentioned the about Freds calming attitude and easy going nature. Yes, I do think we need that in the White House, and it would be beneficial at this time.

Maybe Fred is playing it smart at this time and hasn't put all his cards on the table yet, unlike Rockys frothing, yapping, dog fighters.

The only thing the dumpocrts have going for them in my estimation is the same old CLASS WARFARE card. Like there are no rich D's. Ever notice how they try to dress like po' folk? They have about as much class as a 50 cent beer.

Back to normal broadcasting.

Best wishes, Bill
