One of the best candidates is not on the list above: Georgia's Governor Nathan Deal.

NO. Cruz was born in Canada but either one or both of his parents were citizens to he is a citizen.

Don't bet on it.

A lot can happen between now and November 2016. Obamacare looks like it is going to crash and burn. Working people who get stung by it will likely turn against the Democrats in droves.

There is also the matter of Obama's betrayal of Israel to Iran. When the chickens come home to roost from that hell will be to pay.

I should have included Sen. John Thune from SD.

He would fit as the establishment candidate.

Not much of a field for the Republicans, they're either too extreme or too crazy.

They get more votes than they should because of Fixed News and the raft of radio carnival barkers funded by the likes of the Koch brothers.

Unbelievable but true.
The goal of Faux News and the reichwing pablum pukers on the radio, is to continue to mislead and misinform those not capable of thinking for themselves.
So anything they're told, they run with it.
And the Koch brothers will pay for it.

I used to listen to late night radio and all started out there with the right wing crazy late night talk shows.

Then Rush starts babbling nonsense all day on the various radio channels. Now there is at least a dozen of the nuts presenting crazy talk. Hannity is on both radio and TV

Fixed News was started for the very purpose of presenting right wing political views.

If one looks back to see who was supporting and funding this daily political head packing you will find the Koch brothers and more just like them.

I just heard the other night I think it was Florida State received a 1.5 million dollar funding from the Koch brothers for their economics department --- "BUT" -------in return the Koch brother got control of who they hired to teach economics.in the dept.

It was amazing that any State funded college would agree to that. Its total head packing. What goes in a lot of people's ears later is regurgitated out of their mouths as if it was original thinking.

Jon Huntsman will be the GOP nominee and the next President of the USA.

Ike was a progressive republican who was not a whacko. He could not get to first base in the Republican Party today as long as the Tea Baggers, the Birchers, the Libertarians and the religious nuts have control.

Huntsman would run hard in a general election if he can get through the primary's. I'm afraid that Huntsman might be to sensible and moderate for the Republican primary voters.

Another establishment candidate might be SD Senator John Thune. He has not made any waves and follows the Republican official line whatever it is. You will find him standing behind Minority Leader Mitch McConnell bobbing his head in agreement.

True, Eisenhower (or Reagan) would have a hard time winning a Republican primary today. But the old school traditional Republicans are starting to push back against the Religious Right / Libertarian (Tea Party) elements at the grass roots level.

Exactly how I see it and watched it all happen. Today's crazies are far from a Republican of years gone by.

The Libertarian - Tea Party - Ayran Rand nuts tried to run as a separate political party and did not get anywhere. So they simply moved into the Republican Party at the local levels and started taking control with their extreme right rhetoric.

Last time Ron Paul boy's were everywhere at the State level even claiming to be backing someone else just to take control.

Governments have to govern and compromise is required.

Sheldon Adelson Says No Republican Candidate Worth Buying
Posted by Andy Borowitz

LAS VEGAS (The Borowitz Report)—The casino billionaire and Republican kingmaker Sheldon Adelson met several 2016 G.O.P. candidates available for purchase over the weekend, but decided to buy none of them, Adelson confirmed today.

After hearing speeches by Kentucky Senator Rand Paul, New Jersey Governor Chris Christie, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and several others who were for sale, Mr. Adelson concluded that none of them are worth owning.

“I don’t want to spend millions on another loser,” said Adelson, who purchased both Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney in 2012.

The casino magnate was scathing in his assessment of the candidates he declined to buy, calling them “a third-rate grab bag of has-beens and dimwits.”

“I guess the Republican Party is thinking, Here comes crazy old Sheldon, he’ll blow his money on the first washed-out wingnut we throw out there,” Adelson said.“Well, guess again.”

He dumped around 20 million into the last Presidential race.

He says he likely will spend more this time around.

How much will you donate to a candidate? Likely not much.

The political rumor mill is that the big corporations and the wealthily are starting to push Jeb Bush.

Money talks.

Rand Paul will not likely get any money from Adelson due to his positions on foreign policy. Guys like Scott Walker will sell themselves to the highest bidder.

I am 100 percent opposed to the ACA "Obamacare".

However, I support President Obama in his approach to the Israel/Iran problem.

Make no mistake, Israel is America's friend only as long as it furthers Israel's aggressive Zionist agenda. Israel is a dangerous little viper of a nation. If we are not careful Israel will be to us what Serbia was to Tsarist Russia in 1914.

Israel may get what it wants, but American Christians will pay the price and take the blame.

I say end our "special relationship" with Israel.

Have you noticed that Jeb Bush is getting a lot of attention & push by a lot of news sources?
