There are now, let’s see, seven Republican candidates for President? Perry, Romney, Bachmann, Cain, Gingrich, Huntsman, and Johnson. Do any of them seem presidential to you? Is Perry’s Gardisil debacle going to haunt him as much as Romneycare will haunt Mitt? Can Bachmann overcome wishing Elvis happy birthday on the anniversary of his death?
Are we all doomed?
That’s probably a rhetorical question, but the fact of the matter is that there’s not one GOP candidate that seems to stand out. It’s one huge mess right now, tailor-made for the party to shoot itself in the foot.
Let’s draft Florida representative Allen West for President. A no-nonsense former Marine lieutenant colonel, he responded to a request by the Council for American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) to “denounce anti-Muslim activists” with one word – “NUTS!” (http://www.theblaze.com/blog/2011/08/17/nuts-allen-west-slaps-down-anti-muslim-complaints-from-cair/)
This is a guy I could vote for. We should draft him immediately. I just wish he represented my district in Texas.
