It’s time I switch my focus from the “Krazy Kansas” as I call it (trademark pending) to a national focus. It’s never too early to start talking about the next Presidential election or as I call it, my Super Bowl.
Lets meet the players. From the Democratic side we have Hilllary Clinton and……
Ok so from the Democratic side it is Hillary. I think we can all agree that she is slated to be the Democratic candidate for the next Presidential Election even while she is still “thinking about running.” Whateve Hill, we know are you totally in and so excited you can barely stand it.
From the Republican side it gets a bit more complicated. We have an interesting cast of characters and for the life of me can’t tell who the heck is going to lead the conservative pack.
I call the Republican contenders the “boy brunette brigade” or the triple B for short – Marco Rubio, Ted Cruz, Chris Christie, Paul Ryan and now Jeb Bush.
You can probably throw in Rick Santorum for good measure.
Out of this list, none of them is a strong candidate against Hillary.
I’ll admit – even though I want a Democrat to win, I long for a solid Republican candidate to make it an exciting race. With any of these candidates we will just end up with Romney II. A candidate who is lukewarm without any really chance of winning. There will be a few exciting moments, but most of it will be a big zzzzzfest.
Listen up GOP, get your shit together! I want a strong Republican candidate. I love the political process. I love feisty debates, negative campaign ads. Without a strong candidate, I’ll be forced to watch more Bravo to satisfy my need for drama. Please feed my need for good politics.
So Republicans I ask you to step it up. Who am I missing and why would they make a good candidate?
Marco Rubio can’t seem to hold it together on a national stage. Ted Cruz shut down the government with a Dr. Suess book and America is still pissed. Chris Christie…well you guys can’t really stand himself so why would Independents or Dem cross the line to vote for him? Jeb Bush???? Really? How many times are you going to back to that well? I’m falling asleep just writing about these candidates.
Think about it GOP – you have so many winnable issues this time around. The Democrats couldn’t have served up on a silver platter more beatable issues in the next election. Obamacare, Benghazi, NSA spying, the IRIS scandal. They are yours for the taking except that you don’t have a candidate worth a darn. Find somebody ASAP and get him or her (oh who am I kidding – him) out there on the national stage stat!
What do you think? Do the Republicans have a chance in the next election?
If you don’t find a strong candidate soon, we will easily call Hillary Clinton the next President of the United States.
