Let’s seriously pick people who you believe in enough to be our Commander in Chief…they don’t have to be politicians but they can be.  They can be male or female, of course.  They must be living, no historical figures, and they should have a modicum of believability as far as BEING PRESIDENT!


GO!  I’m eager to hear…ANYBODY you admire, ANYBODY you want as our President!

  2. Shortest Bocopro comment ever, but didn’t list why.

    Scott Walker. Executive, fire-tested.


  3. bocopro says:

    O.K., Ed — how’zis?

    John Bolton. Conservative, butt-kickin, no-nonsense, independent-minded, patriotic American. Been around since a US dollar was worth nearly 50 cents. Served as US ambassador to the UN as a recess appointee by Shrub II. Left the post when the Senate made grumbling noises about not confirming him on a permanent basis for his unrelenting common sense approach to world affairs.

    He is a senior fellow at the American Enterprise Institute, a senior advisor for Freedom Capital Investment Management, a FoxNews analyst/commentator, and a stand-up dude whose idea of handling pipsqueaks such as Kadaffy Duck, Sodom Insane, and BatEar al Asswipe is to write their names down on a piece of tissue paper, strike a bold line through them, and then use the paper for what it was originally intended.

    My kinda guy.

    Bolton is experienced, having been around politics since basically forever in D.C. but somehow managed to remain uncontaminated by the insidious bacterium in the water which converts otherwise decent public servants into greedy, self-serving partisan hacks. He regularly touches base with and is involved in studies with several think tanks and policy institutes, including the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, the NRA, the US Commission on International Religious Freedom, the Council for National Policy, and the Gatestone Institute.

    Liberals find him devious and dangerous for his refusal to play by the rules they have consecrated, including coverup, spin, lie, deny, and accuse, preferring instead to simply go with the truth up front and let the chips fall where they will.

    Only possible drawback is that he, like most high muckity-mucks in D.C. these days, is a lawyer. But even with that stench and stigma on him, he regularly comes across as the exception rather than the rule and is completely unafraid to call a spade a spade, a liar a liar, and a petty dictator an ——-.


  4. Vladimir Putin. If we’re going to end up as a totalitarian State, let’s quit half stepping, so some of us can get our Revolution on.

    Plus Putin is Trump approved.


  5. Sparky says:

    My husband. He’s lived with me, a crazy Irish chick with a big mouth, for 37 years and is definitely ‘fire tested’. He has morals, kindness, intelligence and full of proper rectitude. And also believes in and lives the US Constitution.
    (By the way, still laughing … sort of … at CI’s comment. He does have a point.) 😉


  6. geeez2014 says:

    CI, Do you have a real choice?

    Sparky, I felt that about my husband, too….excellent pick!

    Bocopro..I got to meet Bolton once and shook his hand and told him I was his biggest fan! He looked stunned and was very, very cordial and nice. Gave a great speech at a gathering I’d attended.

    Ed, do you think Walker could have won?? I like him, too.


  7. geeez2014 says:

    REALLY smart of Hillary to have a meeting today with ALLL the “republicans” who are generals, advisors to other Republicans, too, who’re now supporting her. VERY good optics.

    She’s also appeared with Baptists and told them SHE is married to a BAPTIST…:-) Yes, that must have felt good to them; a philandering, lying, womanizing BAPTIST. Nice reminder, Hillary!


  8. Kid says:

    A Conservative Libertarian who can really get things done and who’s name is unknown to me/us.

    I like the idea of Bolton and also Allen West if I have to name names.


  9. A Conservative Libertarian who can really get things done and who’s name is unknown to me/us.

    I accept your nomination!



  10. Walker would have beaten Hillary like a rented mule.


  11. Actually, since I’m obviously trapped in a bizzarro world alternate universe, where we are faced with these two candidates that in any sane world would not be up for election, I must assume that in another universe, my counterpart is relaxed and overjoyed at the prospect of a Walker presidency, unless he’s running against a better candidate than Clinton.
    Who would that be?


  12. Baysider says:

    I like Walker a lot. Foreign policy is such a mess, we need strength there. I hadn’t thought of Bolton. Inspired choice. In addition to everything said about him he is a genuine consensus builder without abandoning American positions. He has been able to get parties ‘on board’ – you’d never know from the media. They incinerate him because he’s so good and effective.


  13. geeez2014 says:

    CI. Can I be your VP? can you imagine the FIGHTS we’d have ? 🙂

    Yes, Kid! IMAGINE a BOLTON/WEST TICKET? I swear, as rightwing and despised as those guys are by the leftwingers, they just might have had a chance against the shrew… Nice to think about!

    Ed, you really think so? With her HATE MACHINE “reminding” America that Walker won’t give them FREEBIES? (wait till you see tomorrow’s post!)


  14. geeez2014 says:

    Ed…love that comment. Better DEM candidate than Hillary? About any of them, I’d guess, have less baggage than she does. Did you hear that the guy who did all the erasing just got immunity? UNBELIEVABLE. Gowdy is ticked as HELL.

    Who might that Dem candidate be? GOOD QUESTION. My mind went blank and all I can think of is the marvelous young Republicans who are up and coming…..none of whose names are coming to my feeble mind now, either (uhoh!) OH! I just Googled NEBRASKA SENATOR and got one name: BEN SASSE. Actually, I’d MARRY him if he’d have me (smile!) OKAY, I’d adopt him…the age difference makes more sense that way!!! 🙂

    Baysider, they STILL incinerate him even as much as Bush/Cheney….you’re so right. I think he’s a fine man….really upstanding, sticks to his excellent ideology. Yup


  15. Imp says:

    “She’s also appeared with Baptists…”

    Yea…and the room was half empty. But…Bolton / West would be my choice too. Let’s draft them.


  16. geeez2014 says:
    One of the best books I have ever read is SEEKING ALLAH, FINDING JESUS. I have highly recommended it here several times. I don’t know if you’ll be able to open that facebook page to read his words, but I have just learned that Nabeel has been diagnosed with “Aggressive stomach cancer” whose prognosis is “quite grim”….I’m heartsick for him and for this world.

    Please pray that he can at least finish “20 Questions Muslims Ask and the Answers that Convert Them.” His illness feels like a real attempt to squelch Christianity by a darker power than I’d like to mention here at GeeeZ.

    Pray for him and his family…pray HARD that he can write that book….and that his second book, which is apparently entitled “No God But One: Allah or Jesus?” is widely read…I’d not heard about this till today.
    Here’s a guy fighting HARD to bring Muslims to Jesus and…what happens? Pray HARD.


  17. edbonderenka says:

    So I read this:
    and don’t understand why immunity for Pagliano is a bad thing if you want him to tell who told him to do it, which he did. Clinton lawyers. Go after them. Up the food chain.


  18. Kid says:

    OT I thought you all might enjoy… a parasitic flatworm has been named for obama


  19. geeez2014 says:

    Ed….It’s not Pagliano this time..”The New York Times reported Thursday that the Justice Department’s immunity deal with Paul Combetta likely means that Republican lawmakers’ calls for federal authorities to investigate his deletions will go unheard.”
    Gowdy’s FURIOUS

    Kid….what an insult to parasitic flatworms.


  20. I vote for ME! Why, because I don’t know anyone else that agrees with me on 100% of the issues! Zee and everyone else—— If you really want to “Thank a Vet”, here’s your chance. Please visit my blog and share my letter to your congresscritters, concerning the Veterans Administrations budget. Thank you all so very much! Sorry Zee, I don’t usually use other people’s blogs like this, but it is THAT important, to me at least.


  21. Any random individual listed in the Boston Telephone Directory, but not on the faculty of any university.


  22. Silverfiddle says:

    Ed; My thought exactly. When I first heard months ago that they had granted immunity to one or more IT guys, I thougth “ah ha!” Well, the FBI granted them immunity for… nothing. Letting co-conspirator Cheryl Mills refuse to testify by citing attorney-client privilege was also a travesty, as was letting her accompany Hillary during the friendly chat the FBI had with Hillary. And that on top of not putting Her Rotten Heinous under oath or recording her testimony.

    This was a wired-up inside job from start to finish. We have a banana republic government, including the now-compromised FBI. The Clintons corrupt everything they touch. There’s not enough disinfectant…


  23. “I’d rather entrust the government of the United States to the first 400 people listed in the Boston telephone directory than to the faculty of Harvard University.” – William F. Buckley, Jr.


  24. Mal says:

    First person that came to my mind until you said they must be living; no historical figures, of course was Reagan. Then I would probably have said Kasich because of his success in Ohio, but changed my opinion of the guy when he balked at keeping his word to back whoever made the GOP nomination. Its a tough question, Z, because even J.C. himself would have a problem addressing all the things that are wrong. Even He would have his hands full! But I love C.I’s choice (Putin). They don’t have problems with terrorists because they don’t allow Muslims or Mosques in Russia. Period. That alone takes care of a huge part of what is wrong. There is no one person that I know of that can address all the problems, including our HUGE deficit. That’s why our guy Trump, warts and all, is probably the best qualified. I’ll still stick with him.


  25. Mal says:

    ………….but I’ll vote for C.I. and you, Z, if you guys decide to run!


  26. geeez2014 says:

    SF and ED…but the problem is yes, immunity is sometimes given to GET TO THE TRUTH…but it doesn’t sound like this is the case this time. Gowdy doesn’t think so, either…I saw him this morning and he’s furious.

    Mal! Thanks…I nominate you as SECRETARY OF OPTIMISM… didn’t get to the age of 87 by being negative and I love your optimism! (is it 87 or 86?)

    Vrag; WELL SAID! and well quoted! Did you know Brent Bozell is Buckley’s nephew, by the way?!

    AA…I’m always glad when you come around because you’d stopped blogging for so long I don’t tend to check out your blog anymore so I’m happy for the reminder…I’m so sorry!


  27. cube says:

    West/Walker or Walker/West might’ve been a great ticket, but, at this point, it’s all pie in the sky wishing and if wishes were fishes, we’d have a big ole fish fry. Our reality now is either Clinton or Trump. Pick your poison. If you’d rather stay home and not vote, don’t come crying to me when the US goes kaput because you didn’t even try to prevent it.


  28. geeez2014 says:

    Cube..AMEN to that…even I who talks tough against Trump, and I’ve said I don’t have to vote for him because I’m in California and our electoral college is sewn up, will probably cast that vote JUST IN CASE!
    As I’ve said here for years “I’d vote for a ham sandwich versus a Clinton”..especially HILLARY.


  29. bocopro says:

    Not sure how old it is or whether Bennett had anything to do with it or not, but there’s an ominous conspiracy theory floating around that les tranchees will never permit a Trump presidency.

    It’s been on FB and several other sites. Probably the best take on it with the full text is at truthorfictiondotcom.


  30. I would like to vote for Newt Gingrich, Scott Walker and possibly Sarah Palin.

    I’m actually happy about Donald Trump. He’s a unapologetic American leader.


  31. If I had a gun to my head, and had to choose a name [other than me], I’d say Gen. James Mattis (Ret). For some narrow, but specific reasons.

    But admittedly, I don’t know much about his positions on key factors, such as civil liberties and the separation of powers. This would tend to negate my earlier proffer of the autocrat Putin.


  32. geeez2014 says:

    Man, FairestWitness, I don’t mind Gingrich or Walker, but we sure do part company on Palin and Trump…who are actually quite alike, but I you and I’d differ on their characteristics, too!

    CI…that puts a conversation to an end, since I don’t have time to Google him right now and I’m betting nobody’s heard of him before but you, but I’d have liked to have heard WHY for that simple reason.

    Bocopro; who are your idea of Les Tranchees? You mean the GOP in general?


  33. edbonderenka says:

    That would be “Mad Dog” Mattis. There’s a campaign slogan….


  34. Imp says:

    Putin represents his country’s interests well. I never saw him on an apology tour, never saw him bow to a Saudi Monarch or prince, nor to a Japanese PM. I’ve never heard him dissing his country at the UN either. Russia, after all these years should be a strong and a natural ally. What good does it do for us to revert to a cold war stance that served no one? Russia is a predominately Christian country too…just as we are. We have more in common with them than we do with Syrians or Kuwaiti’s or Iraqi’s or Iranians.


  35. Kid says:

    IMP, which should make it clear obama and clinton as well have little to nothing in common with America. Yea, I don’t get the cold war nonsense. Gotta be money related.


  36. Look up Putin’s record on freedom of the press, civil liberties and his campaign against any political opposition. He’s an autocrat, disdainful of Republican ideals [classical Republican, not the party].


  37. bocopro says:

    Not necessarily the GOP. The article I read (rather lengthy) poses fear and self-preservation by the entrenched power brokers could result in an “assassination” attempt.

    Here are the first 5 paragraphs:

    “They will kill him before they let him be president. It could be a Republican or a Democrat that instigates the shutting up of Trump.
    Don’t be surprised if Trump has an accident. Some people are getting very nervous: Barack Obama, Valerie Jarrett, Eric Holder, Hillary Clinton and Jon Corzine, to name just a few.
    It’s about the unholy dynamics between big government, big business, and big media. They all benefit by the billions of dollars from this partnership, and it’s in all of their interests to protect one another. It’s one for all and all for one. It’s a heck of a filthy relationship that makes everyone filthy rich, everyone except the American people. We get ripped off. We’re the patsies. But for once, the powerful socialist cabal and the corrupt crony capitalists are scared. The over-the-top reaction to Trump by politicians of both parties, the media, and the biggest corporations of America has been so swift and insanely angry that it suggests they are all threatened and frightened.
    Donald Trump can self-fund. No matter how much they say to the contrary, the media, business, and political elite understand that Trump is no joke. He could actually win and upset their nice cozy apple cart.
    It’s no coincidence that everyone has gotten together to destroy The Donald. It’s because most of the other politicians are part of the a good old boys club. They talk big, but they won’t change a thing. They are all beholden to big-money donors. They are all owned by lobbyists, unions, lawyers, gigantic environmental organizations, and multinational corporations – like Big Pharmacy or Big Oil. Or they are owned lock, stock, and barrel by foreigners like George Soros owns Obama or foreign governments own Hillary and their Clinton Foundation donations.”

    Bennett has disclaimed authorship of the article, but it says several things a lotta people believe.


  38. Bob says:

    I cannot think of anyone that is perfect for the office of the presidency. I have always liked John Bolton. I have always liked Jeb Bush until the campaign this last year. I never liked Ted Cruz, John Kasich, and a few of the others. It is undoubtedly true that the best and brightest did not survive the primaries. A fluke in the system got Trump the nomination, just like a fluke got Bill Clinton elected for his first term.

    My ideals are crushed, and I am disappointed that Carly Fiorina didn’t get any traction in the primaries. Rubio was one of my favorites, but he fell along the way.

    The pretty well leaves those who didn’t run. Of all the people out there who are interviewed on the news shows, or contribute their opinions on cable news, I think the Dick Cheney is still the most qualified man for the office that we have seen in the last twenty years. But, his day has come and gone. Gotta stick with Trump and hope he gets lucky, again.


  39. Kid says:

    I certainly agree with bocopro. Any time there is big money involved and there isn’t much bigger than 10 trillion in 8 years.

    Rounded –
    A million seconds is 32 days
    A billion seconds is 32 years
    A trillion seconds is 32 thousand years and change

    I would just add that the big banks are in on it too. Big ones like JP Morgan, Citibank and some others Big banks never lose. Ever.


  40. Except I liked Cruz in contrast to Trump.


  41. Imp says:

    CI..ya a country ruled by monarchs, czars and autocrats since the beginning of their time…why the hell should we continue to compare them against our way of governing? I’m sick and tired of these failed attempts at nation building and assuming that if Russia isn’t a carbon copy of our ways….that they’re just plain evil or dirt. Or taking 3rd and 4th world countries and make them in our “image”. You know we wouldn’t try that with the Saudi’s or Iranians…so leave Russia to their own devices. They’ve been ruled…and some want Stalin back for Godsake….with iron men. They like it…they want it that way. They want to be led by a strongman. . And so do we…but we haven’t found any for 25 years. We should have stayed the hell out of Iraq too and Afghanistan….knowing what we know now. There never would have been an ISIS if Saddam had stayed in power. Not even our allies want to be a carbon copy of this country. Not France, not England, not Sweden, or all of Europe. And Africa is a total failure so why should we waste our time, resources and energy there. Let’s fix ourselves first and foremost before our next asinine crusades into hell.


  42. geeez2014 says:

    Ed, ya, THERE’s a slogan! 🙂

    Imp; I agree…that’s ALL Trump meant but they get outraged and take every comment to the nth degree…I agree with him; Putin’s an ass and threatening to many, and to his own country’s freedoms, but he does put his country first…kind of refreshing…in a sick kind of way, but refreshing!

    I just had coffee with a guy who knows a LOT of people who know Obama, see him around DC, etc etc…they ALL say he’s unlikable..isn’t that interesting? Dems AND Reps…all say that he has a big kind of ‘wall’ around him… totally detached and weird. I found it fascinating.


  43. geeez2014 says:

    “I come in peace. I didn’t bring artillery. But I’m pleading with you, with tears in my eyes: If you ‘fool’ with me, I’ll kill you all.”



  44. Imp – I generally agree with everything you say, but when you’re a candidate for POTUS of this nation, if you unceasingly verbally fellate dictators and autocrats of other nations, in a co partite mode with our Republic……that’s a problem. Nobody is saying that other nations shouldn’t decide [unfortunately, most don’t have that option] to be ruled by autocrats. And as long as you’re not the political, religious or social opposition/minority, you’re probably fine.

    But the fact remains, civil liberties and freedom of the press and political opposition in Russia, are deplorable. And one of of major Presidential candidates can’t stop telegraphing his man crush on the Russian “strongman”. So why is refraining from nation building a good thing [to which I agree], but colonizing a parcel of foreign land to rape the resources, likewise a good thing? Both positions of Trump. Of course, Trumps not sharp enough to realize that his praise of Saddam Hussein refutes one of the key neocon excuses of invading Iraq….to which he has taken 3 to 4 different positions on.

    BTW, “we” [as expressed by “me”] do not not want a “strongman” as a national leader. We’ve had a never ending string of people with desires of such. And we find ourselves in a worse state.


  45. Z – Yeah, if I could ever be accused of a man crush….it might be with Mattis.


  46. Was it Mattis who said, “Greet everyone you meet with a smile, and a plan to kill them.”?


  47. CI: I’m on record (I have the recordings) from last summer, of suspecting Trump of being a Mussolini, and still do, but rather Benito than Adolph.


  48. Imp says:

    “And as long as you’re not the political, religious or social opposition/minority, you’re probably fine.”

    Really…it seems that’s going on right here today. No…not seems…it is. Political persecution and PC reigns over civil discourse or personal beliefs. Via the totally corrupt media and our corrupted institutions. FBI, DOJ and the IRS are recent examples. And…how much better off would Detroit, or Philly or Camden, Chicago or Newark be today if we had spent the trillions we wasted on our failed adventures or “invaded” them instead? Man…we can’t even graduate from high school more than 50% of kids in our terrible schools. And this and they are our future?


  49. Kid says:

    Z, Of course obama is unlikeable. he and michele are literally anti-American ghetto punks at the minimum and have no intelligence. To those below their status they are bulies, to those above – like Putin, then are buffoons.

    The only people who would like them are other ghetto punks and maybe not even then because they have so much money.


  50. Kid says:

    Well, here are the top 7 things Putin has done to help America. I sure don’t regard Russia as a number 1 or even 10 enemy.

    It’s time to go back to when Reagan talked to Gorbechev about how the Earth might be faced with an alien challenge and it is beyond time to start planning on working together. True. Now with the non-alien threats facing The Earth, like the moslem savages, it is time once again to embrace any other reasonably civilized countries like Russia – regardless of they are as screwed up as the US or not and mount a charge on those threats.


  51. Imp says:

    @Kid…Bingo. Well done. Like I said…we have a hell of a lot in common with them than we do the moose plaugue.


  52. Kid says:

    CI, Chesty Puller.


  53. Kid says:

    CI, PS – and Chet Atkins… 🙂

    A 2:15 muslical interlude who might like one. One guy, one guitar, one time through.


  54. John M. Berger says:

    “I sure don’t regard Russia as a number 1 or even 10 enemy.”
    Thanks, I don’t either. Insofar as who I would pick for President, pursuant to the original question of this post and after much thought, Bolton would be my choice.


  55. geeez2014 says:

    CI: YOu said “Z – Yeah, if I could ever be accused of a man crush….it might be with Mattis.”

    I love a man so healthy that he can say that without feeling awkward or fearing some kind of teasing for it. I ADORE some of my girlfriends, like a ‘crush’ but it’s HEALTHY! Thanks for this, CI.. It made me smile.

    You also wrote a Comment I can’t find was at the top of my Comments page which I opened my computer on, but when I got into my blog and went back wondering why I didn’t see it printed there, it wasn’t on my comments page! The one about Johnson’s Aleppo blooper….suggesting Trump’s done the same. EVERYBODY’s done the same…and ALEPPO DOES sound like an acronym for something, so I do believe it caught Johnson off guard….the more I think of it, the more I can understand that. ALL of us do this from time to time, and he didn’t deserve the crap he got for it, maybe even from me, if I felt differently the other day and said so. But you never have to compare that with dumb things Trump does to make Johnson look better………I’d vote for my 3 yr old nephew over Trump.

    Kid, CHESTY PULLER sounds SO PAINFUL…for a man, anyway….I envision some dopey girl approaching a boyfriend at the beach and pulling a chest hair! OOOOUUUEEEEE!! 🙂


  56. Kid says:

    @JMB – Bolton it is !


  57. Kid says:

    Z, Funny. Chesty Puller is the idol of every Marine alive or dead.
    Well, Chesty (correct me if I’m wrong you servicemen will you?) had a large chest physically and figuratively. He had no fear. He was known to be standing in a fire fight while the other Marines were in foxholes telling him to get down. He said, there’s not a communist in the world who can kill me.

    Some other quotes

    Check him out on Wikipedia also. He is the most decorated Marine in US history.


  58. ….and he didn’t deserve the crap he got for it….

    I’m to see you say that. I think my previous comment was specifically to Trump not knowing what the Quds Force was, and while I didn’t give him any grief at the time….QF [or more formally IRGC] is the primary Iranian force inside Iraq, and the prime supporter of Jaysh al-Mahdi [JAN] back in 2005-2011, who were killing many of our forces.

    I found the media coverage of Johnson’s gaffe unbelievably overblown given two point’s: the U.S. does’t have a policy on Aleppo, it has a policy on Syria, so the question was misleading to being with, and secondly……Trump has made Iranian influence a staple in his rhetoric against Obama’s policies and actions [real or perceived] regarding Iraq. Johnson has not done likewise regarding Syria, other than to argue for non-intervention there.

    I’m not sure why the media had a bee in their bonnet over this, other than my opinion that third party threats to the duopoly hurst their business model. They thrive on strife between team A and team B. Team C merely muddies that waters.


  59. Kid says:

    CI, Well I don’t require a president to know everything. I only require Great Advisors and great judgement. Frankly I’ll take Trump over any of the other 16 standard issue politicians who apparently think jobs and the econmy are the number one issue in America.

    Just fwiw.


  60. Well I don’t require a president to know everything.

    I don’t either. I do however, expect them not to peddle in conspiracy theories and political canards.


  61. Kid says:

    CI, Yea, agreed, but political campaigns are nothing more than polling, demographics, lies, mud slinging (98%), and more mud slinginng. In my opinion.

    I personally find anything anyone says during a campaign as about useless. I don’t believe anything they say and simply – well, as stated before and more to the point – I have yet to vote For someone. I’ve only voted against democrats. I use only my knowledge of someone (I know more about the clintons than I want to) to come to a conclusion and again – I vote against democrats. If I perceive the opposition is even worse, I’ll won’t vote for the federal office.

    How nice it seems it would be to vote For someone. I’m starting to think the kind of person we’d like to vote for would never put themselves through the media ball crusher for him/herself and family. No doubt there are some Great people who would grace the white house, but I think we’re beyond ever seeing one of them run.


  62. Kid says:

    AOW, Thanks.


  63. Kid, I’m 68 years young and have NEVER voted FOR someone either! A damned shame!

    I’ll be voting for Trump—whilst PLUGGING MY NOSE!!!

    Zee, thanks for the visit!
