In a lot of ways the first year of this administration is beginning to look like the land of 1000 unfinished projects. Something (anything) needs to be completed in 2010, or all your derisive findings will begin to ring true with many more Americans. The “perceived snub” by Sarkozy may be little more than just having to wait in line; but perceptions are perceptions in the world of politics.
But here’s the real rub for those who are against President Obama: So far, here is the list of possible Republican candidates for 2012. (I did little research gathering this, so if there are more please add to them.)
Anyway, who amongst this conjectured group would stand a chance to actually win against Obama even if things sort of continue as they are now? If employment happens to improve, things look even better for Obama despite the other things your list.
ï‚§ Governor Haley Barbour of Mississippi
ï‚§ Former Governor Jeb Bush of Florida
ï‚§ House Minority Whip Eric Cantor of Virginia
ï‚§ Former Vice President Dick Cheney of Wyoming
ï‚§ Former Speaker of the House of Representatives Newt Gingrich of Georgia
ï‚§ Former Mayor Rudy Giuliani of New York
ï‚§ Former Governor Mike Huckabee of Arkansas
ï‚§ Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana
ï‚§ Former Governor Gary E. Johnson of New Mexico
ï‚§ Former Governor and 2008 vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin of Alaska
ï‚§ Representative Ron Paul of Texas
ï‚§ Governor Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota
ï‚§ Representative Mike Pence of Indiana
ï‚§ General David Petraeus of New Hampshire
ï‚§ Former Governor Mitt Romney of Massachusetts
ï‚§ Former Senator Rick Santorum of Pennsylvania
(Sarah Palin may be off the plate at this point)
If there’s no one really, then you’re looking at 2016 my friend, 2000 frikkin’ 16!!
I would like to point out that in 2005, just about every list of Democrat presidential nominees lacked a certain name — that of a junior senator from Illinois.
So there are many folks that want to run for President? Clearly that means MANY people are un-happy and think they can do better and are being cajoled by exponentially more people that think those folks can do better. The bottom line is that whoever becomes the nominee folks against Obama (many) will unite behind the nominee for the GOP.
Things are looking up, especially if people want Bush back
