The Palin-Cain-Bachmann-Santorum GOP Ticket

2011/05/15

How do we defeat the media’s attempts to pick the GOP candidate? These guys love Mitch. They’re totally unafraid of Mitt or of Christie. No fear of Newt. They want the weakest, most ideologically confused and unexciting Republican they can get. A “moderate” who will not threaten the D.C. environment, if you catch my drift. (Yeah, but Frum isn’t running.)

My salty* 2¢…

I say a rock-ribbed libertarian-conservative can win this thing over RINO’s like Mitt or Mitch or Christie and kick Obama’s weenie butt. With commitment and confidence – both – from the blog leaders of the libertarian-republican coalition, you can have a HUGE say in landing the most effective candidate.

Look, Cain is far from perfect. So is Bachmann, ditto Palin, so is Santorum. Yet any two of these would beat Obama and galvanize many swing-shoppers in the “middle” – the Reagan-Democrats.

Mitt ain’t gonna do it. Neither can Daniels. Christie never met a carbon tax he didn’t want with ketchup. None of ’em have the dynamism of a compelling message. Nothing inspiring in any of these guys. More, it is generally accepted now by unaligned moderates – those precious “independents” – that continued printing, borrowing, taxation and spending and left-politics as usual will crash the entire game. Hell, even statists want someone left to suck from. Solution? Give the “middle” and the GOP’s Tea base what they both want – a genuine, clear alternative to the mellifluous teleprompter dweeb and his angry czarkluster.

Want blog hits? Here’s a suggestion: Start selling Cain. Bachmann. Santorum. Even Palin – sell ’em all and sell ’em hard. Start trashing RINOs and squishies as intellectually confused and politically unproductive. You will attract more from the Right and drive the Left nuts. (Watch the troll-traffic on your comments.)

This isn’t time to tack “centrist.” It’s time for balls-to-the-wind and go large Right Libertarian. Load the cannons and bold colors flying. Go Reagan.

Freedom is not only a gift from G-d, it is a moral obligation. Be Free Men.

Cheers.

UPDATE: WILL, bless him, suggests that Rick Santorum is rather closer to Huckabee. More in tune that yours truly, I’ll defer to Will’s opinion here. Jim the Right Guy drives home the point by suggesting John BOLTON instead. Can you imagine the look on Hu’s face when he sees Palin/Bolton on the ticket?

    Hu would crap his drawers. So would putie.

      I too! Upside: We could find someone libertarian to replace Stevens on SCOTUS. Hell, even the New York Times would celebrate having a bit of market-share returned.

      I’m for Palin/Bolton. Cain/Bolton. Bachmann/Bolton. Just give us a decent ticket.

    I thought Stevens already retired? Who’s next? Ginsberg?

    After seeing Cain during the recent GOP debate, I have to say out of all of them, Herman resonated well with me. Now, being from the west, and therefore a “Western Individualist,” I have to say Gary Johnson suits my political philosophy more than others on that stage, but unfortunately, he lacks drive, and charisma in the way Reagan had charisma. Santorum is just too socially conservative for my taste. Not that that is wrong, (I’m pro life) but he wears SC on his sleeve, as opposed to Michele Bachmann, another social conservative who is more concerned with how the left is taking us down the road to a “brave new world.” The difference is this: Bachmann talks more about the economy, and as a tax attorney, knows a thing or two about the egregious tax system, and its impact on the economy. And after all, the biggest issue for 2012, is the economy.

    Cain and Bachmann is the real Magilla! Can you imagine the terrified looks on the faces of “progressives?” A solid pro growth black man, and a white, non-liberal woman would send the left to doctors for multiple sedative, and psychotropic drug prescriptions. Perfect!

      From your keyboard to G-d’s iPad, Will! Please!
      Cheers.

      The left would find a way. They did with Palin and they will with any of them. Did you hear about Newt endorsing the idea of government mandated healthcare? He’s through and I wouldn’t support that gangster if you paid me. I think the field is going to increase for about 2-3 months then reorg to something more sane.

      I like Herman, but no one has stood out head and shoulders about the rest. Not yet. Honestly, I hope Palin does come in. It would reanimate the party.

        Amen. She may already be running an alt-campaign, away from the media.

        Newt neutered himself with the endorsement of mandated health care as well as some other ill informed remarks he’s made recently.

    Mike – yeah, no kidding. It was his repeated endorsement of Dede Scuzzo in NY-23 that totalled his creds. No amount of body work can fix a destroyed chassis. The guy is a wrecker. Sad, too, because he had been an amazing, robust Conservative at one time, so long ago.
