Politically Speaking, My Views on the Left the Right and Everywhere in Between

Reluctant Advice for a Reigning Right

Posted in General by politicalily on January 17, 2010

I think my views on what the Republicans would need to do to win in 2012 would make for an interesting post, however if you are a Republican please do not heed the following advice because I would like to see President Obama serve a second term. The key word for Republicans is “Moderate.” It is essential for them to produce an exceedingly moderate candidate. Someone who doesn’t remind voters of George W. Bush and who has the “fresh-faced” image of Barack Obama. They need a Washington outsider who really brings back the image of a “Grand Old Party.” What they don’t need is an old, rich, balding white guy with a grand sized waist band. Hear that Rush Limbaugh, it is crucial for the success of you party that you not become the face of the Republican Party.

One of my few Republican friends recently made the remark that they would like to see a Huckabee/Palin ticket in 2012. I believe this would be a great ticket seeing as I want President Obama to be elected to a second term. If Republicans choose a Huckabee/Palin ticket President Obama will surely be re-elected. Both Huckabee and Palin are at the Fox News Chanel and that is were they should stay. Sure your hardcore Republicans are fans of them, but neither would classify as moderate. Throughout the 2008 election Sarah Palin demonstrated to the American people that she was in no way fit to be a heartbeat away from the Presidency and I doubt that will change by 2012. Sarah Palin is a PTA Mom who has gotten out of control not a serious presidential contender.

The GOP needs a whole new batch of presidential hopefuls. Many people have predicted that Louisiana Governor, Bobby Jindal, could be the Republican’s Barack Obama and lead them to victory. I would have to say that while Bobby Jindal does have a fresh-faced vibe and seems change-y he is not the only one. I think that Senator Olympia Snowe could be a possible GOP presidential Candidate. Senator Snowe would appeal to many voters because she is not a member of the “Good ol’ Boys Club,” and that represents change. Senator Snowe has also demonstrated that she is willingly to compromise with Democrats when she voted to get healthcare reform out of committee. She is both moderate and represents a change. GOP looks like you have found your 2012 presidential candidate now you just need to find a new V.P vetting team because they didn’t do so swell choosing the “pit-bull with lipstick.”
