Yes, but they are similar in their self-confidence and intelligence.

and I'm not just trying to flame. I really think people are going to be disappointed when he gets on the big stage. He's not ready for prime time.

I can agree with that. However, if he can convey his message and the left focuses their venom dripping mouths at other candidates, you may see some people start to wake up and realize that they have been voting all wrong.

After these next four years, if people don't realize what a giant mistake they made I will lose faith in the American people and start preparing to fend for myself because things will get very ugly here.

Pawlentee, Mitch McConnell, John Huntsman, Jeb Bush, maybe Jindal, Rob Portman, Boehner.

They're ready for prime time. I don't know if they could win.

You guys have to realize that the presidential campaign is loooooooong. And unless you're a seasoned veteran or a gifted politician (following a very unpopular president), you're not going to make it. W, Clinton, Carter, Reagan were governors. Bush 1 was VP and head of the CIA. Obama is kind of an exception but he is a truly great politician, and he came along at the right time. Had he led the D primary most of the time like Hillary, he probably would have wilted in the spotlight too. And like Carter, he benefited from the public being pissed at previous administrations.

Notice how Bachman, Perry, Cain and Trump became quick favorites only to quickly fade. Gingrich (who's a pro) had staying power. Mitt had been running for president for 6 years.

Fair enough but neither of those guys would make it much past the press conference stage. The progressive retards and the press would launch into hyper drive.

I agree leaders of senate/house have targets on their back. Notice how most presidents are governors and not legislators with legislative records.

I'm just speaking to simple things (that we often overlook) like name recognition or the relative ability to maintain control in heated exchange. Or the ability to stay on message. I appreciate all the new ideas that are brought to a campaign, but you have to remember that most people aren't paying attention to that.

A politician friend of mine once told me "A want: never forget that half of the voters are below average"

Yeah Rand is my favorite candidate for 2016. The fact that Rex started a negative thread about him just confirms it.

I doubt it, ppl like me would vote 3rd party again for a guy like johnson.

I agree with alot of your post though, not sure who is ready for a long campaign and can survive attack after attack that comes in an election like that. Having personally met many of the canidates this last go round Newt was far and away the most intelligent but had too many skeletons in the closet imho.

I have to say a Rand/Rubio ticket with a bill Whittle running the campaign would be interesting and something I would support.

The pertinent dynamics for '16 are this: Dems will lose a few points on the Black turnout; R's must pick up a few points on the Redneck turnout; and R's must pick up a few points on the Hispanic vote. The first is guaranteed unless the Dems run another black...won't happen. And the second two won't be hard if a team like Rubio/Paul are offered up.

The Green vote will be so marginalized by the Dems attempts to "skyrocket" the cost of energy, and the serious blowback...they probably won't dare even show.

Obama is a formidable, slash and burn politician, but when the consequences of his irrational economic policies 'come home to roost'...the country will have had enough of that crap by then.
