Presidential Candidates

Sorry for the break.  I've been handling some shit.  Now for my views on the GOP presidential candidates.  Truth be told, I will not vote for any of these guys.  I consider myself a liberal moderate.  This group as a whole seems to have started at the far right and pushed themselves into right wing radical territory.  I think this is because the presumed, current, not-for-long front runner, Mitt Romney, was viewed as a moderate.  Everyone knows Moderates usually don't win primaries.  So Romney's opponents went as far right as they could.  This forced Romney to follow them once he started losing steam.  And now the GOP is in the position they are in, a weak field of candidates ruining their chances to get elected by distancing themselves from moderates, because the GOP's base is essentially a gang of religious zealots who feel threatened by other people's freedom.

Mitt Romney

This guy is the quintessential Republican candidate.  He ran a company, Bane Capital, that would buy businesses and tear them apart or combine them to try and form a super company.  There was a scandal that cost him the chance to win his Senate race against Ted Kennedy.  You see what had happened was his company bought a paper company.  They fired everyone and offered them the chance to rehire with a caveat.  They would have to take a 25% pay cut and work longer hours on top of changing the culture of the work place.  One worker said, "It was like working in another country." on his return.  That's the American way, right Rascals?  This guy won't get my vote, because all of the things he did as governor of Massachusetts I liked (public health for example) he has backed away from in his attempt to scurry to the far right.

Rick Santorum

I'm utterly convinced this douche nozzle is the Osama bin Laden of the American right.  He is a religious extremist (He thinks Christianity needs to be "defended" by the government), a notorious homophobe (google santorum), and a lying tool (imho).

Newt Gingrich

This dude is cray as shit son.  He opposes gay marriage, because it will destroy the "sanctity" of marriage.  Yet this grinning jack ass has been married 3 times.  His first wife was his geometry teacher 7 years his senior.  He got divorced and remarried his mistress.  Allegedly he divorced this 2nd floozy, because he wanted to bone other people and she wasn't cool with it.  He divorced this 2nd broad and married his third wife, whom he was cheating on his 2nd wife with.  See a pattern?  Oh, this last divorce happened while he was investigating Clinton for lying....about cheating on his wife.  What a piece of shit.  The fact that this dude ever had a chance speaks to the quality of shit running for the GOP nomination.

Well there you have it.  I'm not even going into Ron Paul because of time and that dude is cray.  So which piece of shit do you think is going to win the nomination?


  1. I agree with your analysis of the three pictured. I do disagree on Paul however. He's the only honest one out of the bunch who is actually conservative, not a war mongerer who believes in stealing money from the people to fuel oil conquest, whether you side with him on domestic issues or not.

  2. I watched the debate last night. He's not crazy, just wrong. You're right brandonman

  3. I have always thought the Romney would win the nomination. Every time we go through this the media likes to pretend we are headed for a brokered convention to boost news ratings, even when they know damn well the outcome is a foregone conclusion. Funny thing, is like you said, the Republicans are so busy bludgeoning each other instead of attacking Obama they are knocking themselves out before they get to the general election.

  4. Yeah Ron Paul is crazy but he's the least crazy of the group. So that's why I hope he wins.

  5. Oooh harsh! I haven't even heard of these people. Hmmph. I guess I will have to rectify that.

  6. All those look awful. I would vote for Obama again.
