Spread the News

Confrontation works.  Remember when I posted about how Trump has support because he's not afraid to go after Obama?  Yeppers.  And while Trump is not running (Thank God!) the lesson from his little month or two in the center ring is important - going after Obama works.

More importantly, going after Obama needs to happen if you want to win this election.

The people who Republicans need votes from have been insulted, attacked, harassed, demeaned, slighted and stepped on by Obama and his cronies.  If we think for one second that the person the GOP puts in the race is going to treat us the same way, WE WILL NOT VOTE FOR THEM.  If we think for one second that the GOP candidate is just going to be business as usual, aka Romney, Gingrich, Huckabee or McCain, WE WILL NOT VOTE FOR THEM.  And other than a somewhat coherent foreign policy, does anyone think that a McCain presidency would be better than an Obama presidency?

I sure don't.  McCain has no problem making cute little kissy faces at the people who would enslave generations to their ideological pipedream.

We need someone who will go after Obama, knock him off his pedestal, and send him scurrying back to Chicago.

Can you name some of those possible candidates that fit those parameters, and are electable?

As of right now, off the top of my head?

Herman Cain
Alan West, even though he's not running.
Rand Paul. He's got the baggage from the libertarian foreign policy, but that's workable.
Sarah Palin.
Tim Pawlenty. People bag on him for some of the legislation that got passed in Minnesota while he was governor, but he was dealing with a house and senate full of Donks the entire time. He did quite a good job.
Rick Santorum

That's just off the top of my head, and not taking into account folks who haven't even indicated that they'll toss their hat into the ring.
