Did you see who won the 1st GOP Presidential Debate? VERY INTERESTING! State, National, International, posted by CainWins, a resident of the Amador Estates neighborhood, on May 6, 2011 at 8:06 am
Now this will make for an interesting primary election!
The mainstream media states that the 2012 Presidential election will be "ALL ABOUT RACE." While I disagree...let's bring it on anyway.
The 1st GOP debate was won hands-down by HERMAN CAIN, according to Frank Luntz and his focus group. Cain is a wonderful conservative, a self-made millionaire who founded the successful Godfather's Pizza chain, and is black.

I was very impressed with Cain last night. He isn't your typical politician which is refreshing! It will be interesting to see how he holds up as the "big guns" enter the race. If he doesn't make it through the primary, he should be heavily considered for VP.

Typical right-wing freak show. They don't stand a chance against Obama. Funny seeing you conservatives blindly throw your support behind an unknown pizza man. You can't make this stuff up. Now you right-wingers should get back to destroying our public schools in the name of the Tea Party, Palin, and Jesus.

Sal-Obama is his own worst enemy and will self-destruct before 2012. He can't make the libs happy because he's trying to compromise with more reasonable folks. He can't make the middle happy because he's too busy killing the economy and not promoting job creation as job one. And he can't ever hope to get the right to support him since he wants to stifle anyone's hopes of being successful by playing the class envy card at every opportunity.
People will gravitate further away from the career politicians supporting the status quo or their version of 'change', even if the candidate is an 'unknown pizza man' (i.e-successful businessman).

Sal - You are projecting again. The Tea Partiers are those on the political spectrum who pay attention and vet a candidate. It was 2008 that you on the left "blindly threw your support behind an unknown"

Sal, name calling, "Typical right-wing freak show," is not appropriate. While I may not agree with those on the right, and their propensity to name call, I don't believe that we should slink down to their levels.

Of course there was nothing interesting about this jr hi team...which was the purpose of this thread, to ridiciule....none in this group will make varsity.
I'm a lifetime conservative Republican who would boo them all off the stage, except Cain who is quite refreshing but he's not going to be elected President. With these clowns, Obama is safe. Actually there are two well qualified new names coming into the race that are very interesting,and I could support, but really none of the others to date.

NVP, you're right about the ridicule. Sigh. I wish you could refrain from name calling though. Can't we just boo them off the stage without calling them clowns? People don't deserve that. Boo them off the stage all you want to, but gosh, must you call them clowns? Consider my sensibilities badly bruised by your choice of words. Signed, Yet Another Republican

Criticize all you want to "NO VARSITY PLAYERS" but pretty soon the varsity heavy hitters will be entering the race: Palin and Trump and Gingrich and Bachman and Huckabee and Giulianni and that universal health care guy Romsney.
