Preyer!  As in doesn't have a prayer...............


I know the difference between the 2 words, but don't know how "preyer" fits in your sentence - never mind, I don't think I want to know.

With news that Mitch Daniels won't be running, the GOP is forced to look for other options.

By JONATHAN MARTIN
5/22/11  
POLITICO

Mitch Daniels's overnight decision against a presidential bid will immediately raise the volume on the low-hum grumbling among Republican insiders that they're gearing up to face President Obama with the weakest primary field in recent memory.

The pressure on a handful of Republicans who've insisted they won't consider running but would be potentially strong alternatives to Mitt Romney will now significantly intensify, but the ultimate beneficiaries of Daniels's absence may be two candidates already on course to run: Tim Pawlenty and Jon Huntsman.

At the moment, though, the Indiana governor's exit illustrates the degree to which the GOP race is being shaped by who's not running.

Consider the list of would-be candidates who've passed on a campaign in the last four months: Mike Pence, John Thune, Haley Barbour, Mike Huckabee, Donald Trump and now Daniels.

Add Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan and Rick Perry - Republicans with star power who've said flatly they won't run - and it translates into a GOP establishment deeply worried that the flawed options they're left with won't be any match for an incumbent president who seemingly won't face a primary but is likely to shatter campaign fundraising records.

Seems to me thinning the herd early might be a good idea for the Republicans. Might prevent a blood bath inside the GOP before the primaries. We need to unite behind ONE candidate,who ever that may be, to defeat the common foe.

Nobody is calling it over.  But!  It ain't pretty at the moment.  It is 0bama's to lose.  

The Conservatives need to gain the Senate in 2012.  That in my opinion will insure a 2016 conservative victory.  Or should.

   Don't know.  I want to say ANYBODY but Obama.
But 4 years ago I also said anybody but Hilliary, and look what we got.

I am listening to H. Cain, M. Romney. Had thought about Newt, still like most of his ideas.If it continues, someone might have to fall on their sword for the common good.We simply must be a united front against Obama.
Looking at last week's Jacksonville Mayoral election, I see the same scenario possibly developing in the Presidential race.I read the Jax election as having been a situation where the primary race bitterly split the GOP voters, and the winning candidate Mike Hogan could not convince Audry Moran followers to support him. So, Mr. Brown,the Democrat, turned out a large number of voters, and won.
And we simply cannot let that happen in 2012.

I am not sure I can vote for Romney.  I like Cain but I am not sure he is up to that level.  Newt?  I like him but he shot his wad last Sunday on Fox News Sunday with his Republican "Social engineering comment.

The comment itself is a valid opinion held by most left centrist, centrist and right centrist persons, i.e. by all except the far left and far right - both of the latter who rationalize fascist dictatorial imposition of laws because "we know what is best for you."

The comment: "I don't think right wing social engineering is any more desirable than left wing social engineering.  I don't think imposing radical change from the right or the left is a very good way for a free society to operate."

But it was the context of the comment which riles some Republicans, as it was in response to a question about a Republican House leader's proposal to radically change "entitlement" programs to reduce the annual deficit spending.

Which demonstrates a root evil in the political scene and the 2-Party system today.

Honesty in a politician has become a minus, not a plus - even as the majority condemn politicians for dishonesty.

It is patently absurd to expect or demand that every Republican politician, and every Democratic politician to rubber stamp everything a party "leader" says or does.  

My proposal to diminish the power of the 2-Party system: http://community.webtv.net/bieramar/bieramarsblog/page10.html
