Obama 08' - Cotton 16'

Maybe a big surprise for the GOP 16' Presidential race might be that $enator Cotton. It could still happen. GOP would love to pull and Obama - a young first time Senator blazes a trail to the White House. The GOP base will eat this up - oh and don't forget that Co$$on wore the uniform, and idiot Palin said recently that only someone who wore the uniform could be Commander in Chief. (I can't believe I had to paraphrase her idiotic statement). It is sickening to think of, but if Co$$on has the full support of his fellow Repub. $enators, to write this letter to Iran, is already meeting with the power brokers of military industrial complex, has the idiot, Palin's support, then he must be planning something. Front runner, Walker, is too venerable and his roll out is more like GW Bush strategy everyday (is Turd Blossom part of Walker campaign?) --Walker a real dummy puppet of the Kock Oil industry. Cotton is the puppet for the neocon, warmongers, big military industry wing of the GOP.

1. He will definitely run in 2020. Cotton got out of the army, was elected to the US House

in 2012 and declared his run against Sen. Pryor just 8 months later. He just might throw his beanie into the 2016 ring.

6. But I do have a question: All I have seen is that he is a Vet and was in the army. Did he see

actual combat?

9. Yes. We can't take that away from him.

I don't agree with the OP that it put him on the path to the presidency, though.

10. John Glenn was an authentic American hero and his presidential campaign went nowhere.

11. He was also Elizabeth Warren's student at Harvard.

Apparently, he didn't learn much.

5. Google tells me that New Republic and the Arkansas Times have stories about this.

Interestingly, he is a Harvard graduate and actually had Elizabeth Warren as a professor.

Tom Cotton is smart enough that he can appeal to both the Tea Party wing and the Neocon wing even if he is a bit hazy on the Constitution.

12. No way, Cotton will be national laughing stock by the time the Democrats are inaugurated in 2016.

See also: Sarah Palin, Joe the Plumber, Donald Trump, Christine "I am not a witch" O'Donnell, Michelle Bachman, Herman Cain, etc
