2 year campaign cycle? What complete & utter, pointless, useless, BS.
Since most of the expense is paid for by the public and the lobby's, time is of little interest to politicians.

That could be. We could have him paint signs that say FiFi Forward.

Unless they run a conservative. a conservative not beholden to their elitist aster, Repubs will not win anymore. Its bad enough when you think RINOS ans NEO CONS are voted out and viola...new ones appear to keep the elitists global movement going. The progressives were dead along time ago. They sold out easily for domestic gains for their voters. Even giving the elitists their wet dream of weakening the good things in history as everything was castigated as evil. The end result is a weakening of us all and more and more people not caring. And of course more and more people will not produce anything and collect. Bringing on the elitist world government and a state of tyranny to America.

Rand Paul is proposing legislation to completely ban abortion. So if he gives up his dad's soft on terrorism and drones stances, then decides to support our military, he might have a chance.

An extremely liberal neighbor just told me if Republicans were smart enough to run Paul in 2016 he would have her vote,and she has never voted Republcan in her life. She is tired of Democrats promising everything,and producing nothing. She doesn't think even Democrats know what in is that medical care bill. Maybe Paul is the answer to the Republican's problems.

We do not have a womnan in either party capable of being President. They are too flighty.By the time they getto the House, or Senate they would scratch each others eyes out. Conny Rice is smart enough, but she doesn't want it. The rest are not nearly ready for such a responsibility. So that leaves us choosing a man.

Female conservative women are destroyed by progressives. They fear it. Most act like they still enjoy being women and they should. Unfortunately they are in politics and it makes them look weak in their eyes. Also there are some people in the Repub party that probably feel the same way. A bull dyke like female spewing flames of accusations much like the progressives would probably do better because of it. It is a shame there is so much hate.

He couldn't ban abortion if he wanted to. It's a Supreme Court issue and until that's changed, politicians have little to say about it.

Glad to see you on the left have your noses in the air. You have a likable candidate this round and assume it's forever. As for DumBama, he's a total failure and anybody that follows politics knows this. The last nail in the coffin will be when Commie Care goes into full swing in 2014. Now they are reporting that your veterinarian bill will be increasing thanks to Commie Care. You can mess with Americans, but don't mess with their pets. Today, you can get more time in jail for beating your dog than you can beating your wife.
I would like to see a Paul/ Rubio ticket. We would pull in all those Ron Paul voters as well as Hispanics. The joke on the internet is a Hillary and Mz DumBama ticket. Wouldn't that be a hoot?
Polls are beginning to show that America is sick of the "blame the other guy" President. Unemployment hasn't changed much in four years, people are paying around $4.00 per gallon of gasoline, and there seems to be on exciting economical news. And no, it's not George Bush's fault either.
this is a solid prediction:
Hillary & Julian Castro>>>>>> >>>>winners in 2016
Jeb Bush & Marco Rubio>>>>> >>>>>>losers in 2016

What is progressive about the women you are proposing for President? Hillary has Benghazi hanging around her neck, and Michele O has never held office of any kind, or accomplished anything on her own. Biden? Oh yes we pray the Democrats run Biden. There are multitude of pictures, and comments on Youtube showing the drunken vice President. He is a shows all by himself. You have to run someone. How about Holder? Now there is a prize. Someone has to carry the Communist banner

your neighbor is deaf, dumb, and delusional. paul is no answer to anything. for some reason you ppl. think any candidate is going to have peace joy and happiness with the congress. taint so, tontoe. no president gets all that he campaigned for and against. the extreme example of this is with those current crop of teaKKKrackas.
