So, who do you think the Pukes will foist on the country four years from now?

For the first time in a long time, their party seems to have no obvious frontrunner or standard bearer. I keep hearing Paul Ryan mentioned due to his role as the VP candidate this year but, if history is any indication concerning losing VP nominees, I doubt he has any future in national politics.

3. Jeb running as the sane one. He will lose the general election to Hillary45

 

Sticking with my prediction 4 years ago
Jeb is running
He has a book coming out next year
And he will spin himself as the sane alternative who knows how to win

Lucky for us they will have a civil war
And a Clinton knows how to defeat a bBUsh and will do so again in 2016 like they did in 1992

But the dems will need to be united

And the only reason in 2008 Hillary didn't win was because Obama's voters voted for him.
With his support, all will vote for her.(his core voters/fans) and she shall prevail in a landslide

And win Texas too (the last remaining big red state)

5. It is going to depend on where the party finds its identity

if they find their identity in the extreme, I think Paul Ryan will run.

If they find their identity in the moderate part, I think Jeb Bush will give it a whirl.

7. It will have to be Jeb

Romney was doomed as the Republicans have not won a Presidential election since Herbert Hoover in 1928 without a Nixon or Bush on the ticket.

8. Ugh. Let's let campaign season die for a bit, eh?

Let's worry about that at mid-terms.

In the mean time, let's do this!

10. They have not won the White House without a Bush or Nixon on the ticket since 1928

and their inability to form a new thought will make Jeb the front runner.

12. Rubio or Jindal

Would be my guess.

The Repubs need to run a woman or a minority to even come close, imo, to winning the White House.

The Repubs can no longer win a national election with a base that is white, older and filled with religious zealots.

The Repubs need to appeal to a broader audience.

14. Minorities aren't going to vote for these guys simply because they're not white.

Jindal is terrible and has the charisma of a sock.

18. But that's who I think they will run

13. There are a few

Expect Chris Christie to be there. Also a Bush, prob Jeb.

They, the Work Across the Aisle R's, will face another batch of teabaggers. Expect Bob McDonnell and Scott Walker to try it. Also Nikki Haley, since she should be available in January 2015.

We might also see Sheldon Adelson, who would test the religious right's resolve.

It won't matter though - Obama's team will be there for the next Democrat.

15. None of the top of the list today.

In other words, not Jeb; not Chris Christie (cautiously), etcetera.

It will take something over two years to tell.

17. A new and improved robot, the T-1000 made from liquid metal

without the lip-smack glitches, weird constipated smile, or inability to related to humans. But it will still have the patented Reupublican ability to lie and act as though you're crazy for pointing it out.
