And the worst candidate of 2012 is . . .

Running for office has often been compared to walking a tight rope without a net or hosting live television.

Glad to see Michigan so well represented. Don't for Numero 1 our own native son, Willard RMONEY of RMONEYCARE!!! We produced THREE of the BIGGEST LOSERS!!! LOL

* Thad McCotter: That the Michigan Republican Congressman chose to run for president at all was a major head-scratcher.(The extent of McCotter’s “fame” came from his regular spots on Fox News Channel’s overnight programming.) McCotter could have been forgiven his quixotic presidential campaign.(After all, what politician doesn’t want to run for president?) But what sealed McCotter’s spot on our worst candidate list was his amazing failure to qualify for reelection in House district after large numbers of his petition signatures were deemed fraudulent. McCotter eventually resigned from the House in July, ending one of the oddest congressional careers we have ever witnessed.(One thing to McCotter’s credit: He quoted Bob Dylan’s “It’s All Over Now, Baby Blue” in the statement announcing his resignation.)

* Ric Sanchez: If you blinked, you probably missed Sanchez’s “candidacy” for the Texas U.S. Senate seat. When he got into the race in May 2011, Democrats touted Sanchez, a former commander of U.S. forces in Iraq, as just the sort of candidate who could make the Lone Star State competitive. Not so much. By December 2011, Sanchez was out of the race — citing a need to put his family first.(His home in San Antonio had been devastated by a fire a month earlier.) Even before the fire, however, Sanchez had proven a lackluster candidate — raising just a few hundred thousand dollars in a state where running for statewide office is a tens-of-millions-of-dollars proposition.

* Todd Akin: It’s a very rare candidate — Christine O’Donnell, we are looking at you — who can take a race that his/her party will win and turn it abruptly into a race that the party will lose. Missouri Rep. Todd Akin is just such a candidate. Had Akin never agreed to a single media interview or debated Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill (D) after he won an August Republican primary, we would almost certainly be talking about him as the next senator from the Show Me State. But Akin chose a different route – telling a local news channel that “legitimate rape” rarely causes pregnancy. Um, what? From that day onward, Akin had no chance to win. Everyone knew that, except for Akin and his increasingly small political inner circle who insisted he was staying in the race as a matter of principle.(What principle? The one about costing your party a Senate seat?) Akin wound up losing by 16 points in a state that Mitt Romney won by 11 points. Underperforming your presidential nominee by 27 points earns you a spot on the Fix’s worst candidate list every time.(Honorable, honorable mention: Richard Mourdock.)

* Pete Hoekstra: Less than two years removed from losing a gubernatorial primary in the Wolverine State, Hoesktra, a former Member of Congress, took just 38 percent of the vote against Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D) in the 2012 election. The most notable moment of Hoekstra’s campaign was for all the wrong reasons; his “Debbie Spend-It-Now” ad got national attention for being so very offensive. Make it stop.

So did the Union when Obama took the bond equity money from the stockholders and gave it to the UAW. I would agree that 43 billion is a lot of mileage and enough to make any vulture like Obama and the union proud.

Without a doubt Minstrel Show token Uncle Tom-Herman Cain was by far the worst idiot the right-wingers had as a potential republican nominee. His blatant ignorance as he searched in the air with his eyes on the Libya question will be forever priceless; I laughed so hard at the thought that he really believed that he could be president. But it was the humiliation fashion in which he exited the political stage that gave me the most satisfaction.

Awe-Shucky-Ducky now… WOW, Pathetic!

Why should Rick Perry get all the discredit? What about Herman Cain and his German solution to our economic woes - nein-nein-nein? Or Newt (to the moon, Alice!) Gingrich. Or the lovely and idiotic Michele (FROM he moon) Bachmann?
Not that I begrudge Rick Perry his top honors. But Rick is lucky he didn't have to face someone who might have been the greatest threat to his award of all - Sarah (ain't North Korea grand?) Palin.

They all stink, including Obama. Benghazi is worse than Watergate. How Obama won is a mystery. Americans are the stupidest people on earth or the election was fixed. One or the other. Take your pick.

IF "Americans are the stupidest people on earth..." as you said, please tell me what country are you from? I think the smart people voted for Obama for a reason. The other side had a guy talking to an empty chair, and another guy named Trump who wears a thing on his head that growls at everyone. I think Obama voters are pretty normal.

Worse than Watergate, but not near as bad as 9/11 when
Bush and Cheney totally ignored all "dire" warnings from
the CIA about terrorist attacks in the US and airplanes
being flown into tall buildings.

Michelle Bachman was the worst presidential candidate. Mitt Romney lost points just because he stood next to her on stage.

So many 2012 Republican incompetents, yet only one can truly be "worst". What a pity.

Oh well, at least we can agree that when it comes to yahoos, the GOP has a deep "bench".

Good to see the Reagan Revolution progressing naturally...

Please list those warning for us will you? I am sure a genius like you will have them on the tip of your tongue.

Let's see, was one of those warnings that Clinton refused Osama bin Laden three times?

How about is one the fact that Clintons protege made it illegal for the different agencies to share intellegence information?

Oh well, I'm sure yours will be just as good.

Agreed...in a race with Cain and Bachmann, no way could Perry be the run-away winner of the 'worst candidate' award. You could've given the thing to almost ANY reTHUGlican, in fact.

I'd except only Huntsman from that statement, and you see how well HE did...:)

Try this one on for size, JumboSpam.

http://www.cnn.com/2004/ALLPOLITICS/04/10/aug...

That was the presidential briefing just over a month before the attacks, in which Bush was warned that bin Laden wanted to strike the U.S. and which mentions the possibility of the seizing or hijacking of aircraft.

Dumbass.

Translation: "WAA-AAAAAAHH! We LOST!!"

LOL

Seriously, Benghazi was worse than Watergate? How about worse than the attack on the Marine Barracks in Beirut under Reagan?

You'd be wrong on BOTH counts, putz.
