The GOP Field

Chris Christie is not running. Sarah Palin is . . . who knows where she is at these days. Rick Perry shot himself in the foot with a homophobic statement and other "missteps". Ron Paul is sounding better - which is scary in and of itself. Newt Gingrich never really has a chance. Michelle Bachmann doesn't deliver the total unity of the GOP to go against Obama in 2012. Santorum, Johnson, Hunstman are all the second tier stuff that don't make it past Iowa or New Hampshire or South Carolina. Herman Cain is, well, Herman Cain. I really don't know what to make of him. Does anyone? But a serious contender for the 2012 slot against the Big "O" (and I don't mean Oprah - not this time)? Nah, doubt it.

SO where does that leave us? Romney? Please, the guy is so not ready fro prime time players it is not even funny.

There is no one out there to go up against the Democrats candidate. And I sure as heck am not voting for Obama.

So where does that leave anyone who doesn't want Obama to get a second chance to mess things up worse?

Green Party candidates Mesplay or Stein? Or Constitutional party types like Roy Moore or Virgil Goode? R Lee Wrights for the Libertarians? Or Alexander for the Socialists? How about Nader, Ventura or Schriner (this will be the journalist's 4th and last try at the Presidency)? Why not go with Robert Burch, the Naked Cowboy of New York?

(Yes, these are all either candidates or have said they were running - excpet for Nader and Ventura - for President in 2012.)

I think Hillary Clinton would have a good chance of beating her boss for the nomination and the Presidency. But like a good little Democrat, she will not run. Not that I'd vote for her . . . maybe.

But it is very discouraging to see there is little chance of finding someone out there worth voting for.

I won't stay home. But I am having a hard time deciding. Maybe I will run this time. Maybe. Who knows.

Anyway, the usual spiel . . . disagree or not, it doesn't really matter to me. Just as long as I got you thinking for your own selves. because heck, this is just little old me, Thinking Out Loud.

Have a great day.
