TYT: 2012 GOP Candidate Review and Prediction

I happen to agree with Cenk on this point. I don’t think Paul, Bachman, Palin or any of the other second and third stringers will be any sort of factor in the 2012 election. Huckabee and Romney are the two strongest GOP candidates out there.

Neither are good for the country, but it will be fun watching them tear each other apart.

    It hardly matters. An incumbent rarely loses his seat, and there’s not enough support for either side to upset the status quo.

    Besides, Obama isn’t done insuring we are sunk completly down a well yet. We have to give him time.

      *shrugs* Perhaps. Besides, I don’t really see any one Republican really challenging Obama. They don’t have the political clout, especially in light of the rather poorly received Ryan Budget proposal which is upsetting a lot of people.

      For any one Republican to have a shot, they’ve got to rebrand themselves enough to draw in the swing voters to their side. That means avoiding social issues, like gay marriage, for example, and sticking to financial issues, which, as has been pointed out before, is the bread and butter of the Republicans. Campaign to their strength, as it were.

      The problem with that, though, is they can’t seem to keep their mouths shut when it comes to social issues. They, seemingly, want to regulate morality, (and enforce their own draconian morality on everyone else), which people have said they don’t want and don’t support.

      I figure Obama is going to win, unless he does something monumentally stupid or the Republicans get a lot smarter. I don’t foresee either event occurring.

      Thanks for the comment.
