So who are our candidates?
I haven’t even heard of some of these folks, and thus cannot comment on those individuals. But of the ones I am familiar with (Bachman, Cain, Gingrich, Paul, Pawlenty, Romney, and Santorum), Mr. Cain seems to be the best-qualified because of his business background and distance from The Beltway.
Having expressed my opinion, let’s look at some facts: Barack is THE MOST BEATABLE CANDIDATE in the history of the United States, while Democrat and RINO congress critters can also be defeated in droves. We have one chance to begin restoring America to her previous greatness during the 2012 elections. Should we lose the Presidency and/or seats in Congress, the game is over.
A toaster oven could beat Obama at this moment in time, yet, where are our statesmen & women????
Do we have any declared candidates capable of inspiring the average American citizen towards patriotism and away from feeding at the public trough? Is there anyone out there who can deliver a speech effectively without sounding like a TV preacher asking for money or used car salesmen (apologies to used car salesmen – you do perform a vital service which will become even more important in coming days).
Where are those individuals who are capable of saying anything like FDR’s “The only thing we have to fear, is fear itself!“, or Churchill’s “…we shall never surrender, and even if, which I do not for a moment believe, this Island or a large part of it were subjugated and starving, then our Empire beyond the seas, armed and guarded by the British Fleet, would carry on the struggle, until, in God’s good time, the New World, with all its power and might, steps forth to the rescue and the liberation of the old.”
Show me a candidate with fire in his or her belly, who is not afraid to fight, and who loves America more than life itself, and I’ll show you someone who can not only win the election, but save the United States in the process.
