Paging Conservatives: The 2012 Republican POTUS Candidates

This is a thread specifically for Republicans and conservatives on this forum.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I get the sense that just about every one of you really don't like Mitt Romney as a Presidential candidate against Obama. That may not be universally true of all of you folks, but I'd think it's true of much of you, if not nearly all of you.

At the same time, outside of the minority of you who were big on Ron Paul, Romney was unquestionably the best candidate for your party out of the primaries, was he not? At least among the people who were doing anything in the polls. Santorum led at one point, as did Michelle Bachmann but I think all the DC conservatives here hate both. I don't think a single one of you have an ounce of respect for Newt Gingrich or Herman Cain as POTUS candidates (my apologies if you actually do). And Rick Perry was... well, Rick Perry.

Yes, I know most of you would prefer almost all those folks to Obama, but that doesn't change the fact that this seemed like a particularly weak crop.

I am not a conservative or a Republican, but I think compared to previous primary fields for your party, this was a very weak cycle in terms of POTUS candidates.

My question is -- why do you think that is? Why do you think we had such a weak crop of POTUS candidates for your party?

Because right now, it really does seem like the GOP has a deeper bench of people that have Presidential timber than do the Democrats, who outside of Obama and Hillary Clinton, don't really have much of a bench at all. And yet... these candidates didn't seem to have their shit together.

I'm just interested in picking your brains. I'm not even remotely interested in debating or arguing, just wanted to see what your points of view on the subject might be.

No, I think Cain would make a better president than Obama. Wouldn't take much.

Obviously you love Romney. The rest of the field was strong to you?

If not, why was the field so weak this year?

Its hard not to have a gaffe in 4 years. Obama's "gaffe" was apparently was an attack on the Libyan embassy. How should we see how this measures up? W's gaffes included 9/11 and invading the wrong country, and you love him. I'll take Obama.

Aside from Romney, the candidates that I thought were strongest this time around, given the context of the state of the Obama economy and the government fiscal crisis, were Haley Barbour, Chris Christie, and Mitch Daniels. I also expected more out of Tim Pawlenty. I'm not very big on Senators or Representatives as POTUS candidates, but there may have been a couple possible guys there (Thune, Coburn, ... ?) I don't know why those three guys didn't run other than the promise Christie made not to leave office during his first term (he did that once before early in his career and it didn't work out) and the apparent lack of enthusiasm on the part of Daniels' wife.

More bullshit from the biggest piece of shit in this forum.

One thing's for certain, though: You're not a lawyer because no lawyer would say the shit you said in this thread.

And if you are, it's no wonder you post all day long because you SUCK at life.

He loves anyone and everyone in the Republican Party. He's a phony piece of shit. Todd Akin is his hero.
