Here is the thing, we need a leader and someone to rally the troops around if we are going to have a chance of ridding ourselves of the Joker. So far, the Republican field has shown us they are completely unworthy of our support for a number of reasons. The weak Republican field almost assures us of four more years with the Joker. We need a proven leader that understands how government should work and how to reign in the craziness that is Washington.
You are not going to get that with Washington insiders or the current set of retreads. I can honestly say that with the departure of Huckabee and the Donald things have become much clearer that we are completely screwed because Romney and Daniels are the "best" of the rest. I love me some Herman Cain and he is likely to announce Saturday at Noon. While he will make the primaries interesting that is about as far as he goes because of his lack of name recognition and money raising. You don't win the Presidency if you don't raise money by the truckload and you can't raise money if only a handful of Americans even know who you are. Those of us who know his name love him, but that doesn't win elections.
We need someone that everyone can rally around that knows how to get the job done. As always, I want to hear from you as to why not Rick Perry and if not who would make a better choice. I am glad that we don't have a clear front runner out of this current crop of candidates and we might just be able to recruit someone, if it looks like they have a chance at winning. The way the Joker is going, he is likely to face the Clinton machine in the primary and could lose. Wouldn't that make for an interesting general election.
