Scott Walker on the Ideal GOP
2016 Presidential Candidate: Members
of Congress Need Not Apply

ABC News, by Benjamin Bell

Original Article

Posted By:BuckeyeRon, 11/17/2013 12:32:27 PM

During an interview with ABC’s Jonathan Karl for “This Week,” Wisconsin Republican Gov. Scott Walker — while offering praise for his GOP colleagues — dismissed Sen. Ted Cruz, Sen. Rand Paul, Sen. Marco Rubio and Rep. Paul Ryan as the ideal 2016 Republican presidential nominee. “I think it’s got to be an outsider. I think both the presidential and the vice presidential nominee should either be a former or current governor, people who have done successful things in their states, who have taken on big reforms, who are ready to move America forward,” Walker responded when asked by Karl to

Okay, let´s get this started:

Of course, Walker might offer his own name to the list.

Conservatives would offer someone like Sarah Palin or perhaps Jan Brewer.

The Establishment types would, of course, offer Chris Cristie.

Your turn ...

Walker is definitely positioning himself, but so are several others, governors in particular. It´s going to be fun (I know one L-Dotter doesn´t like for me to say that, but it´s true). Those who feel the wrong candidates have been previously chosen because of the early primaries will get better chances in 2016. And the bench is deep.

My favorite rarely gets to Election Day, but each four years is another opportunity.

I´m betting Governor Perry takes another shot at the prize. Of course, I much prefer Palin, but Perry is WAY above Hillary or any other democrat that might run.

#8 has hit the nail on the head.

Senators and Representatives have experience in compromise and group cover.

Governors have experience in the Big Chair, where there is no cover, just hard decisions to make and responsibility to take.

I like the heck out of Palin, and she certainly has her place [I think she missed that place when she didn´t run for the Senate from Alaska], but please. No Palin in the run for the big job. We can´t afford that kind of a debacle again.

She´s a solid Conservative, but she´s carrying too much baggage --not of her own making, for sure, but it´s just too much. Five minutes after she threw her name in the pot, we would see the same debacle that we went through 5/6 years ago. Everyone she´s spoken a word to since kindergarten would get drug into it, and no message ever gets out.

The Conservative Message would never get through the Palin Derangement Syndrome white noise.

Living on the Wisconsin border, I get to observe Scott Walker up close. He would be great. He has had to battle every step up the way, but still manages to prevail. My only concern is the daily grind seems to wearing him down at times. Palin will never overcome her resignation. I don´t care how you try to explain it.

Congress has a 9% approval and all of them are tainted.
The Democrats for supporting Obamacare and the Republicans for supporting the shutdown.
Which Governor Walker agreed was a mistake.
In fact ,most Republican Governors went public disagreeing with the shutdown.
The Governors have a record of accomplishments and work with both state Republicans and Democrats
to achieve their goals.
The unpopular Congresspeople can only tout their votes for and against things , they don´t have the tangibles that successful Governors have.
As much as I like Governor Perry ( who BTW endorsed Senator Cornyn Friday , something Cruz refuses to do )
his unfortunate fumble in the last primary will hurt him should he run again.
Governor Susana Martinez could be a definite contender for the VP slot , but, the big contenders right now are Governor Christie and Governor Perry ,
with a ton of great Republican Governors on stand by.

I love Rick Perry. He´s been a terrific governor and he´s a charismatic mover and shaker. However, I am not at all sure he wants to run for president again. He´s running some good ads here in Texas, touting the good Texas job climate and economy, but I would really hate to see him run and fall short again. But, Energy Secretary in a GOP administration? There is no one better suited in the entire US.

#5 has an excellent pick in Mike Pence. He is grounded in the best values, IMHO, of anywhere in the country - Hoosier values.

Mike is from my high school´s arch rival high school in Indiana. However, he represented my home county when he was in Congress. Although he´s a few years younger than I am, he´s much more grey (but it looks good on him).

Besides the fact that he´s a Hoosier, which is a plus in my thinking, he knows how to talk. He got a lot of training as a radio broadcaster, which is a big plus since the MSM usually trips up a Republican presidential candidate. I bet he knows their tricks and would handle himself quite well.

Pence would be great with Walker as his VP - these two guys know how to win.

Look.................
Can we agree to not excoriate every republican candidate in the upcoming elections? Instead of whining about any candidates weaknesses or where he doesnt agree with you, perhaps you should attempt to convince the rest of us why we should support YOUR guy? Can we agree to no act like spoiled toddlers when our candidate of choice doesn´t win the primaries?

And too the candidates........ Will you all please give us reasons TO VOTE FOR YOU? Not 100 reasons why we shouldn´t vote for the other guys!

Had Romney gone after Obama like he did his opponents in the primary, he might have been president.

Personally, I will vote for whatever republican wins the primaries. Period. And....there are many GOOD republicans out there that could run.

Scott Walker, why don´t you take a hike? The GOP destroyed this country and lifetimes of work and sacrifice. They´ve never apologized to us for what they did, nor said exactly what they´d do to reverse course, nor even exactly how they´re different from democrats. The only thing that gets the GOP establishment´s attention is picking a presidential candidate and telling me whom I cannot have. Romney fits Scott Walker´s list of qualifications perfectly. Of course we find out later Romney hated the whole idea of running, hated the idea of being president, and that his candidacy was only a launch pad for a full time career sabotaging conservatives--along with one or more of his sons. Gov. Walker, I read you´re up against a new battle in your state. When your fundraising guy calls me to contribute, I´ll say no thanks, not this time.

Do you realize in a couple of ways, maybe even more than a couple, Nelson Mandela has more in common or had more in common with Clarence Thomas than he does with Barack Obama? For example, Nelson Mandela (even prior to becoming president, but certainly after he became president of South Africa) insisted on compliance with his country´s constitution. He insisted on it. Obama looks at the US Constitution as an obstacle and makes end runs around it every day, practically. In that sense... These are the kind of

The online insurance marketplace relays information about new customers in ´834´ transaction forms to the private insurance companies that provide the health plans. HealthCare.gov serves people in 36 states, while 14 states are running their own websites.

While Mr. Cochran, who turns 76 on Saturday, has the support of many leading Republicans in the state, he is already facing opposition from Chris McDaniel, 41, a state senator aligned with the Tea Party who announced his candidacy in October and has won the support of some conservative groups.

He said the Justice Department should prosecute Clapper for giving false testimony during a Senate Intelligence Committee hearing in March. During that hearing, Sen.

To fully appreciate what former South African president Nelson Mandela was able to accomplish, it is necessary to hearken back to the South Africa he found when he emerged from prison in 1990, and what the country was like in those critical four years between his release and his election to the presidency in 1994. Put simply, South Africa was a violent, dangerous and heavily-armed place teetering precariously on the edge of an all-out race war. And in the early 1990s, it was entirely unclear which way the country would go. On one side, embittered white rejectionists were refusing to

Nelson Mandela was the most famous black man in history. He transcended race barriers to become an exemplar of human generosity of spirit. His towering personality made possible the peaceful transfer of power in South Africa from white minority to black majority rule. If he was less effective as president of his country than he had been as the symbol of resistance to apartheid, he demonstrated statesmanship unmatched in Africa. He inspired love as much as respect, and became regarded by hundreds of millions of people as a secular saint. More was asked of him, and sometimes claimed for him,

Former South African President Nelson Mandela has died at age 95 of complications from a recurring lung infection. The anti-apartheid leader and Nobel Peace Prize laureate was a beloved figure around the world, a symbol of reconciliation from a country with a brutal history of racism. Mandela was released from prison in 1990 after nearly 30 years for plotting to overthrow South Africa´s apartheid government. In 1994, in a historic election, he became the nation´s first black leader. Mandela stepped down in 1999 after a single term and retired from political and public life.

A new review is questioning the effectiveness of two key drugs enlisted in the fight against influenza and in turn the investments by governments to stockpile the drugs in the event of a global flu outbreak. The antiviral drugs Tamiflu (oseltamivir) and Relenza (zanamivir ) are commonly used to treat influenza in healthy adults and children. In the case of Tamiflu, the drug does shorten symptoms of influenza by about half a day - as the manufacturer suggests - but there is insufficient evidence to support claims that it reduces hospital admissions or serious complications, such as confirmed pneumonia or

It´s time to get the feds out of kids´ lunch boxes.
