Paul, Romney, Gingrich, Santorum. Four! Easy to keep track in your head.
Of those? Which would I choose. Gah! Hard to vote for any of the four.
Which is worst for second amendment issues?
Worst is Paul, methinks. He'd eliminate all Federal Laws, which he can't (idiocy), and send it to the states, ignoring the 14th and 2nd Amendments and his duty as president to both. He's said the Federal Government should take no part in gun laws. Fine. That I like. But he'd also do nothing about what states pass, it not being the Federal government's job, in his eyes, to stick its nose in that either. A bunch of states would pass draconian anti-gun stuff. There would be roadblocks on rt 81 between Virginia and Pennsylvania, and lots of out of staters would go to MD jail. "C'mon vote for Paul, TBolt. It'll be a fun four years." No. No it won't. I'd campaign for and vote for Obama ahead of Paul. For this and many other issues. He's all for people being armed but he'd kill the right in his ineffectual ignorance. Wish his son was most seasoned and running in his place.
Next worst is Romney. Mr. Assault Weapons Ban his own self. A choice between a statist liberal Democrat that hates individual freedom and Obama? I'll vote lower down the ticket and leave the top blank.
Santorum? Joke. Sorry pal, you are forever a sex-act residue. Plus your primary purpose in life is "Go Team Jesus" and you concentrate on gonadal politics too much. Smaller gov't, less taxes, controlled borders, punched hippies, fewer regulations... THEN consider the social issues. I really don't give a hang for what you care oh so deeply about.
Newt? Talks the best game on the 2nd Amendment, but I know Newt. When he is good he is very very good and when he is bad he is horrid. And you never know which Newt you will get, day to day, minute to minute.
Perry was best on the 2nd Amendment, but bad on everything else aside from being Governor of the largest and most successful state in the Union. (I don't count california anymore until is creeps back into 'not a basket case' territory.) And Perry is gone.
Gah. Where is Fred Thompson when you need him?
But I think Bore Patch is right, even with the MSM in his corner working his campaign Obama could be beaten by Mussolini's corpse, dodge Italian birth certificate and all. Even that whole "being dead 66 years" thing. But just because Mussolini's corpse can beat Obama doesn't mean we need to RUN Mussolini's corpse against him. And yet, the GOP is. Yay.
My prediction? Romney takes the Oath in January. Not happy about it.
Fairly Unbalanced - The Pauline Kael Award for the week goes to Sophia McClennan at Salon.com for this piece, yet another turgid, smug rendition of "Ha-ha, stupid NASCAR-Ameri...
