2012 Roundup
« on: November 08, 2010, 04:26:57 PM »
Because the next two years are going to be about Sara Palin, so let's get it over with now...


The crazies have already come out:

Quote
The following are individuals who have either formally announced that they are running for president in 2012 and have filed as a candidate with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), or have formed an exploratory committee for a possible presidential run in 2012.
[edit] Republican Party

    * Jon Greenspon, businessman of Montana, has filed as a Republican presidential candidate with the FEC.[11][12][13]

    * Fred Karger, political consultant and gay activist of California, has formed an exploratory committee for a 2012 run for the Republican presidential nomination.[12][14][15][16]

[edit] Libertarian Party

    * Former Libertarian National Committee Vice-Chair and the editor and co-founder of Liberty for All online magazine R. Lee Wrights of Texas formed an exploratory committee on July 4, 2010.[17][18][19]

[edit] Independents

See also: Independent (politician)

    * Street performer Robert Burck of New York[20][21][22][23]

    * Former journalist, author, and perennial independent candidate Joe Schriner of Ohio


Here are all the maybes -- a long list of straw men and comedy candidates.

The big question on the table -- will 2012 be a make or break year for the Republicans?

Just so you know, I initially read Fred Karger as Fred Krueger.

As far as being a real candidate, there's no difference. Freddy might have a better chance, actually.

I will give my vote to Freddy Krueger if Sarah Palin is the Rep nominee.  Otherwise the Libs get it.

My word is my bond!

Yeah... You know, I've never recovered from the Obama Saturation.  I'm still pretty much completely unplugged from the news. Two years and counting where I have no idea what the fuck is going on until someone posts it in the Newsday forum.

It's the same with me.  I just don't have the energy for all the meaningless wrangling.

Amen.  The American public is being held hostage by 24-7 news outlets.  I am so fucking sick of the eternal campaign process... they refuse to shut up about 2012 elections on the one hand and then on the other they sit and wonder why politicians get nothing accomplished in D.C.  Perhaps if they weren't constantly primping for the next election cycle, we'd actually see some progress.

Fuck them.  Fuck them all.  I'm going to liquidate everything I own and distill my worldly possessions down to my dog, my phone, a computer and a passport.  That way I can ditch this country at the drop of a hat and move to Iceland or wherever... I don't give a fuck.

I think I'm certainly in the long range camp where I'll carry through on "love it or leave it."  We've lost, as far as I'm concerned.

Hey, I love America.  I'm Southern, so my love for America is hard wired into my nutsack, but goddamn... I'm not blind... and I'm not stupid.  This place could burst into flames at any given moment and collapse all around us like a nightclub at a Whitesnake concert.

Okay... Nobody cares, but some Republicans are emerging. The Sick Man of America continues to struggle. Early birds are Trump, of course, and Romney, and Pawlenty.

All fucking doomed. I don't know of any Republicans who can effectively run a campaign... What do you all think? We'll get Obama back just be default at this rate.

Here are the "prospective candidates":

Ugh...I'm not ready.

Honestly, I may just have a broken spirit with respect to politics.
