Handicapping the anti-Democratic field of 2016

☐ John (Jeb) Bush--Father was president, helped his brother "win" Florida so to become worst "president" in history
☐ Ben Carson--Black neurosurgeon on Fox
☐ Chris Christie--Temperament of a bullying ass
☐ Rafael (Ted) Cruz--(foreign born) Complete ass
☐ Mike Huckabee--Fox employee until a few hours ago
☐ John Kasich--Arrogant and graceless 
☐ Rand(al) Paul--Father wanted to be president, loon, Ayn Randian
☐ Willard (Mitt) Romney--Lost to Obama, previously lost to the guy that lost to Obama; father was foreign born presidential candidate
☐ Marco Rubio--Opportunistic fraud
☐ Scott Walker--Mean-spirited idiot

Some of these have questionable religious ties: Cruz is a Dominionist (Baptist), his father is a teevee evangelist with Benny Hinn's wife.  Romney is a Mormon, formerly a 'bishop'. Rubio was a Mormon, and a Catholic, and is now a Baptist.  Kasich is an ex-Catholic, who also makes his denomination ambiguous.  Paul is a convert to his wife's Presbyterianism.  Bush is a convert to his wife's Catholicism.  Christie is Catholic.  Huckabee is a Baptist preacher.  Carson is a Seventh Day Adventist, son of a divorced preacher.  Walker is the son of a Baptist preacher. 

Of course they have a deep bench of crazies to come out of their clown car, certainly it has not been emptied. Politically, they extend from the very conservative, to the insanely conservative into fascism and psychosis.
postscriptum 26 January: these idiots are considering it:  Donald Trump, Rick Perry, Rick Santorum, Carly Fiorina, Sarah Palin, Piyush 'Bobby' Jindal. The first three were momentary front runners four years ago, and fell flat. Fiorina was fired as CEO from Hewlett-Packard, she was part of the McCain campaign of '08 and defended Palin, she then lost a Senate race in California. Palin, well, complete idiot and bitch; but as dumb as she is, she believes the exact same crap as all the other Republicans. Jindal had an impressive academic vita, but remarkably even when a Republican has such credentials, he still is an idiot, an ass. How? They all are fine with the plutocracy.

postscriptum 6 July: Someone wrote truthfully about Kasich [click]:
" It's one thing to embellish one's own record; Kasich is a master at that. It's borderline despicable to twist the facts to disparage those who held the same office."
"Reports of Kasich mistreating people — especially those whose stations in life might not be as lofty — have been out there for years."

postscriptum 6 July: the revised list of Republicans wanting to be president (minus those of national notice):
☐ John (Jeb) Bush
☐ Ben Carson
☐ Chris Christie
☐ Rafael (Ted) Cruz
☐ Carly Fiorina (née Cara Carleton Sneed)

☐ Lindsey Graham
☐ Mike Huckabee
☐ Piyush (Bobby) Jindal
☐ John Kasich
☐ George Pataki

☐ Rand(al) Paul
☐ Rick Perry
☐ Marco Rubio
☐ Rick Santorum
☐ Donald Trump

☐ Scott Walker

  1. I've been noticing Kasich on PBS recently.
    If it is between him and Hilary Clinton, I am voting for the candidate from the rust belt.
