The Obama machine is strong and the Republicans will have a tough row to hoe.

I would much rather see Trump and Palin stay out of the feature race but continue to jab anyone that gets too high and mighty in the months leading up to the election. They both have a tremendous ability to draw a crowd and be heard, fund raising is second nature to those two characters.

At this two-minutes I'm seeing Romney and Huckabee in the forefront but if Allan West throws his hat into the ring - Look Out, all bets are off.
That's a very good point about Palin & Trump. They're much better to have on the outside looking in - and running their mouths the whole time.

EXACTLY my thoughts.
TRUMP:
I'm not totally comfortable with Trump waving his flag of conservatism now when in the past he has had many high profile leanings to the other side of the isle. Trump is for Trump and no one else. His voice would be helpful to whatever side he were to support but hopefully he'll remain on the conservative side. I like many things that he has said and I agree with some of his bold "I would do this and I would do that" but unfortunately if he were to be elected I'm not sure his boldness wouldn't be tempered a little by his contributors. After all, he is no different than any of the other crooks when it comes to back scratching. He just understands it better being the businessman that he is.

PALIN:
Palin? What can anyone say about Palin. She is as bold as Trump, as mentioned however; the one biggest job of her lifetime, she quit. I like Palin as a person. She is one helluva tomboy. Any woman that fishes commercially and hunts moose routinely (if she really does) has got to be tough. If she just wasn't so damned flaky some of the time. I would love to be on her management team. I would change her hair-do, put her in some tight sweater and pants (camo of course) and put a fishing pole in her hand. There's all the male votes a person would need. That isn't chauvinism, that is marketing fact.

Later that evening she would wear a conservative casual suit, put her hair back up in a bee hive, lower her voice two octaves, and meet and greet at the local fish fry kissing babies and complimenting the chef.

Palin's voice is so irritating. And like you said, she quit the governor's job. Who's to say she wouldn't resign as Prez or VP if the going got tough? Trump has too many skeletons in his closet. I can't see Huckabee giving up the millions he's makng in his media jobs. I look for Romney to be the nominee, but the health care system he pushed as governor was almost identical to Obamacare and that won't sit well with the faithful. I think to win, a person will have to come out of nowhere and catch the public's fancy.

That's why I want to lower it two octaves.

Exactly why he can't win. He needs not to put himself in a position that would cause detractors to want to open those closet doors.

That may be a good observation but the real fortune comes after the presidency. Hell, he can sit it out four years as President then pick up where he left off twenty-fold.

And that could be a major problem for him. Especially if Obama-Care gets derailed before the next election.

And that is where Allen West of Florida comes on the scene.

Another thing about Trump.
I'm not seeing the wisdom in going to Las Vegas and making a speech and at the same time dropping a bunch of F-bombs. Did he not think the news media would pick up on that?

Way to win-over the religious-right of the south Trump! What the F was he thinking?

We have become a country of "Money talks" so my thoughts of the last 35 years of government leadership by either ruling party is that the billionaires that can control the price of oil, jobs for the little man ,are all designed to control the population growth, and obesity. It's called the class structure insurance. We need a leader in Washington not a boxcar full of lawyers and professional actors. Our government gives Puerto Rico 1.3 billion a year (welfare related) while Americans are begging for a job......why?

Check out the Biderberg Group. The Bushes, Clinton, Obama and most of the other Presidents for years have belonged. It is probably the most influential financial group in the world. Almost impossible to be president if you dont belong. Also check out Obama's backer George Soros. Money picks the president.

I could see Trump being a good Presidential Advisor. Not an official role, because he'd inevitably abuse his power. But an advisor that, when the President wanted him to shut up, the President could just send him on his way.

Palin? Yep, her sex appeal sells, and she knows it and uses it. And for some reason, women (except the ultra-feminists) like her. While I don't think she's stupid by any means, I also don't think she's brilliant. She's just kind of her own dog. While I find Palin perfectly decent as a person, I'd much rather sit down over dinner with Hillary Clinton, than Sarah Palin. I don't like Hillary very much, but she's sharp.

I have to say that Allen West has my vote so far... simply on the "cajones" factor. I was sad when Schwarzkopf didn't run.
