    Nothin better to do yesterday afternoon, so I decided to whip up some thumbnails of the GOP PotUS wannabes. In no particular order, here are a few that I sent out last nite:

    Rubio originally was the Cuba Libre with a twist, El Querido of the Tea Party, with all the charisma of Desi Arnaz masking the seething fire of a Che Guevara. His influence in the Senate, however, has been more reminiscent of a Novato from the provincia, a flip-flopping fish out of water, essentially a right-handed, Spanish-speaking Barry Soetoro.

    Cruz is a usuario. He plants ideas and cultivates the seedling until it’s ready to be consumed, then discards it when its usefulness is exhausted. He’s known as a conversador brillante, a polemista excellente, quick with a quip and ruthless on the riposte. He looks too much like Tailgunner Joe to me. And like that line in Deliverance, “He shore got a purty mouth.”

    Christie has left a trail of controversy, lawsuits, conflicts of interest, and now-you-see-me-now-you-don’t slip-slides on various issues in his not-inconsiderable wake. Very possibly strong enough for the job of PotUS, he brings to my mind the picture of Mafioso Incognito, someone Coppola might take a hard look at if he ever decides to do a biopic on Frank, or maybe Lou, Costello.

    Rand Paul is so far outside the mainstream of American political thought that he couldn’t find his way back to the channel with a brand-new Magellan RoadMate. Much of what he says makes sense . . . on occasion, when the wind is just right . . . but he’s more unelectable than McCain or even Sad Santorum, a schizophrenic isolationist who calls himself a “libertarian” because the only other appropriate term would be “flibbertigibbet.”

    Bush. Ah, Bush. Skewered on the pica of politics by his brother’s name. Basically a nice guy who did a creditable job as gubernador de la Florida and is married to a nice Chicana lady but about as electable as an Iowa fencepost. He’s been out of the political pool for so long he forgot how to swim in muddy water. He’s spent more money than all the rest of the GOP candidates combined, but his dinghy is still doubled up to the pier in a forgotten backwater.

    Ben Carson. The Drowsy Doctor, the Murmuring M.D., the Soporific Surgeon with superb intellect and superior motor skills but the same qualifications for PotUSy as the guy who’s in there now. Needs no anaesthesiologist ‘cause he puts his patient to sleep with his voice. Nice guy, but we all know where they finish in the big race. More or less an asterisk in history, right below Herman Cain on the list of also-rans.

    Carly Fiorina, the obligatory matron in the mix, the anti-Cankles candidate with the sole “Who Cares?” credential of HP CEO and sole political experience of a lost senatorial race. Her primary goal is not the Resolute Desk, but a Departmental Chair in a Republican administration and guaranteed speaking fees for years to come. Nice lady with only the proverbial snowball’s chance.

    Trump is, of course, the collective middle finger of middle America telling the entrenched establishment to (bleep), the loose 18-pounder splintering platforms and gouging gunwales in all directions. He flung open the barred and nailed-shut window and let all the stale, lifeless PC air out of the room, and for that we owe him a debt of gratitude.

    So let’s just thank him and get on with electing somebody who can do the job, anybody other than a socialist or a Clinton, maybe a resurrected TR, or George Patton, or even (submit your candidate here).

  2. Farmer John says:

    Why vote? It only encourages them?

  3. I cannot sufficiently describe my outrage I feel because of the latest GOP betrayal: the omnibus bill.

    Career politicians are a plague upon the land! I despise them all.

  4. Imagine Hillary indicted.
    What then?

  5. Farmer John says:

    Get out your voter registration cards, RINO hunters…

    Voted FOR the 2016 Omnibus Spending Package and up for Re-election to the U.S. Senate:
    Ayotte (R-NH)
    Kirk (R-IL)
    McCain (R-AZ)
    Murkowski (R-AK)
    Thune (R-SD)

  6. Bob says:

    I think Carly Fiorina is the smartest person in the presidential race, and that includes the Dems. As CEO of Lucent, and then HP she is no slough-off or token female. In her career she has been the type of person that gets things done. There’s a reason that she sounds more intelligent that any of the other Repub candidates. She IS smarter, and better prepared.

    The problem is that she will not make it through the primaries, even though I will vote for her.

    I really like Rubio, and don’t understand why his positions on immigration are considered bad.

    Cruz is smart, too, but I don’t like some of his positions. We need a common sense approach to immigration and that means that the illegal Hispanic population that is here should have a chance at citizenship. It just makes sense.

    We have to build a wall like the Chinese did, or the Romans did across northern England. Walls do what they are intended, as long as there is the political will to do the job.

  7. geeez2014 says:

    Bocopro: Wow! Well, I don’t have time to respond to all but I think you’re off on Rubio, at least.
    Some of the rest makes sense, some’s a little hard, in my opinion.

    AOW: TERM LIMITS

    Ed; She could still get elected by democrats..indictment is nothing to them unless it’s an ‘evil Republican’ indictment. Can she legally RUN with an indictment? I don’t know.

    FJ: very disappointed in Thune and Ayotte…something’s behind that vote and we’ll never know what it was because these ARE good people.

    Bob; I wish Fiorina would lighten up just a little; she’d be WAY up in the polls…her stern demeanor and weird visage did absolutely nothing for her in this last debate, though what she says is SO GOOD, I agree. Smart as they come.

  8. Bob says:

    Z: By the nature of her career, Fiorina is a tough person. To have survived internal corporate political wars and back-stabbing, she has to be good. That means she is good at making political war and back-stabbing, too.

    Talking about how a candidate looks, have you noticed the expression on Donald Trump’s face as he is being interviewed on the O’Reilly show? He has the greatest scowl I have ever seen. I don’t think he thinks about it.

  9. Bob, his “intense gaze” as he’s listening always looks like a scowl.
    Wierd.
    Should get a relaxed look.
    I agree with you on Fiorina, can’t comment so on your blog. WordPress.

  10. bocopro says:

    Ed:
    For months’n’months’n’months I waited for the long-overdue indictment of Cankles, assuming that its appearance would signal her public political demise.

    Now, however, all the signs tell me that once again conservatives will find a way to gum it up and it’ll all wither under the weight of deepening time and die ignominiously in the cold wasteland of apathy.

    And . . . hardcore Dems will still vote for her no matter what she does; she could bite Gowdy’s jugular right in the House Well and suck him dry and the left would applaud, saying, “About time!”

    Her absence from the race, tho, could serve as that magic potion with the power to free the gridlock and allow some movement of the political tectates, giving rise to some new legislative volcanoes as the left plate is subducted by the right side and plunges into the fiery depths where it belongs.

    I ain’t a’holdin ma breath fer it t’happen, tho, ’cause I still believe that a majority of voters are too uninformed to be allowed to vote in the first place and will vote her in for reasons similar to those which got the unqualified rookie Kenyan elected . . . ’cause it’s time for another “first,” and it’d be “cool.”

    You may now consider that I have inserted a string of time-proven Anglo-Saxon-based profanities here expressing my disgust with her record of “achievements.” Use your own imagination.

  11. geeez2014 says:

    Ed…what’s that mean? “can’t comment so on your blog. WordPress.” ??

    Trump does have a tough ‘gaze’….but he does smile once in a while…actually, in this last debate, he had a rather ingratiating kind of grin and laughter with some of the other candidates, and not in sarcasm; he does have a good side. I wish he’d shove down the hideous one he shows us!!

    Carly’s just different…it could just be that her brains are working in overtime and she’s so smart the smile gets overridden with deep thought, but…!!!???? Not good.

  12. Z,
    In my view, America as a republic is over and done with without term limits.

    But do you think that Congress will vote for any such thing as term limits for themselves?

    I think not!

  13. geeez2014 says:

    No, I don’t….getting elected puts them on easy street forever.

  14. Z: I was adressing Bob. I can’t comment on his blog because my phone does not remember my wordpress password. And I don’t either.

  15. Bo: I know that Hillary depends on the independents that both parties must woo this election.
    Hopefully they would abandon her.
    I doubt we’ll see an indictment with this AG.

  16. geeez2014 says:

    Ed, I know…just wondered why you couldn’t comment; didn’t realize it’s a personal thing, I thought you meant WP couldn’t comment at Bob’s…whatever.

    We won’t see an indictment…they’ll come up with something snazzy to get her out of it. And Dems will believe it, hook, line and sinker.

  17. Baysider says:

    Great rundown bocopro. Fun! But I like Rubio better than that. Let’s hope we NEVER see another TR. See Theodore and Woodrow: How Two American Presidents Destroyed Constitutional Freedom, here if you’re not sure why.

    And sorry Bob, we’re voting for the same candidate, but “the illegal Hispanic population that is here should have a chance at citizenship” has already been DONE! I was for it in ’84 (or whenever) when it had not been done, when it was coupled with the promise to ‘fix’ the border and immigration, when it was humanitarian, blah, blah, blah. And only as a ONCE EVER OFFER. So, how’d that go? Uh-uh. Everyone after that – OUT. Children out or no citizenship ever. But we know how that goes. Out is better. Don’t need a 1st world Palestinian ‘problem.’

  18. Mal says:

    Hey bocopro! It’s funny you mention a resurrected Patton because I had earlier compared Trump to him in a “sort of” way. Both are (were) out-spoken, in-your-face Prima Donna’s and tops in their respective fields. No one can argue the latter. Patton also got himself in trouble when he slapped a private for being weak and was admonished by his superiors to apologize to the kid. But he was the best in Military terms and so is Trump. Putting all the negativity about the guy aside, I really feel he can and would do the best job. It would be a package deal…….Trump and his ego. They’re Inseparable!

  19. Rush Limbaugh has posted this challenge: Tell Me How the Budget Deal Would Be Worse If Democrats Ran Congress.

    Senator Chuck Schumer has declared: “A great victory of the principles that Democrats stand for.”

  20. Farmer John says:

    18 Republicans voted FOR the omnibus…. 35 voted AGAINST the Omnibus Spending bill. The RINO minority has GOT to go.

  21. geeez2014 says:

    REAL disappointed with N Mexico’s gov Suzanna Martinez….loud party, calling the cops off after hotel patrons had complained. I had kind of high hopes for her, had really liked her story and how she’d become gov. Sad.

  22. Bob says:

    Baysider: OK. We have done the amnesty thing once before, and it worked out pretty good. The problem is security, and I agree that we need to build the wall, first. If we want to get rid of millions of Hispanics, all we have to do is ask them to leave. If they have citizen babies, fine, but the parents still have to go. Of course the babies could stay, but they would have to figure out a way for the kids to get by.

    By asking politely for them to leave, hinting that we will enforce the jobs thingy with their employers, I cannot imagine most of them NOT leaving. We would not need to round them up and put them on buses. We could actually make some money by selling them tickets home.

    Or, we can go my favorite route by making all the illegal Hispanic fathers and other Hispanic males go back to Mexico or where ever they are from. We would keep the women. Now, that’s a great idea, huh?

  23. Baysider says:

    Bob, I’m sorry. The amnesty from the 80’s was a complete disaster that showed how thoroughly the inside-the-beltway crowd disdains us citizens who they consider far beneath themselves. And I really supported it at the time. The pols SOLD US OUT! I’m pretty disgusted and – yup – ready to clear house. Too bad we can’t send all Berkeley grads along. (And the commies who run my town for good measure.) You just CAN’T regularize one generation after another and say “oh well, don’t do it again” then encourage it all the more.

    We are living out the scene from Kramer vs. Kramer in which the 8 year old kid tries his [now single] father’s patience by getting ice cream. First dad says no. The kid drags a chair over to the freezer and the dad says “if you get on that chair you’re in trouble.” Kid then climbs on chair. Dad says “if you open that door you’re in trouble.” Kid opens door. This goes on through opening the ice cream, spooning in into the bowl, and taking a bite. THAT is how we’re running our immigration enforcement.

    Now, I know, Obama has a different agenda to dilute and destroy our law and culture. Fine. Get him out of the picture and you still have ‘daddies’ who say ‘no’ and allow the law to be flaunted to buy votes on both sides of the aisle short-term.

    Which gets me back to AOW’s comment: “I cannot sufficiently describe my outrage I feel because of the latest GOP betrayal: [fill in the blank]. Career politicians are a plague upon the land! I despise them all.” (I was deeply distressed to know John Thune voted for this bill, btw.)

    And these dopes wonder why people like Trump? They can’t think any more, but they know how to feel anger over years of betrayal by back slappers in Washington DC and their friends on K Street where they, too, land if they don’t leave office feet first.

    What term limits did to California is spawn little leftie destructo cliques all over the state. When their term was up, they were blown like dandeliion seeds — all over everywhere, planting destruction in any place they could find to land. Few of these characters term out and then get a real job again. Instead, they worm their way into every interstice of government, feeding like maggots on OUR substance.

  24. Baysider says:

    Sorry – I forgot the ‘end bold’ after Kramer. I’m not really screaming above.

  25. Kid says:

    Ed, hilrod indicted ? Here’s my answer – https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=J2HBdRCroks

  26. geeez2014 says:

    Baysider, you sure describe Sheila Kuehle to a T..that is EXACTLY what she did….did a term or two, then got a ‘do nothing’ job at Santa Monica CC for about $250K a year…

    I still think we need term limits, or SOMETHING that prevents the ‘good ol’ club’ of rich lawyers who’ll live on US the rest of their days.
