Of course he'll have to renounce his Canadian Citizenship first.

OK. Repubs how is his situation different than what you "perceived" Obama's to be?

I can see why you guys love to yuk it up about theoretical future Republican candidates and agonize over what Sean Hannity thinks.

Meanwhile, in the real world...

Obama is the President while Ted Cruz is your Republikkkan effigy du jour? Is that what you were looking for? LOL

You people screaming left and right about Obama's BC now find you do not have a leg to stand on.

By the way of course Cruz is eligible to be President but there is no reason why I should just sit by and not say anything. The Repubs have been doing this crazy **** for 6 years now.

Never gave two chits about Obama's birth certificate.

At this point, the Rs have no decent candidates.

'Course, neither do the Ds.

God help us find a mature, responsible leader who isn't a egomaniacal, megalomaniac.

But, then I guess, he/she would be demonized as a loony.

Leaning towards someone like Scott Walker myself. Someone who's actually run something before. Need to get away from these congressional firebrands who know how to talk but never really had to worry about working with people (who don't always agree with you)

But it's too early to start sweating it. Most people would've laughed off the possibility of a President Obama in 2005 (for 2008 anyway)

The only thing Republicans can come up with is the latest venom spitter in the hopes that his venom is nastier than his predecessors. Ideologues do not make policy. They make tyrannies.

LOL Yes, the Obama administration whom you constantly chide for not being able to get anything done...is tyrannical.

Hilarious!

Shut your trap.

I never said he didn't get things done. That's you kiddies' copout. The guy waves aside legislation at will, even stuff he himself signed.

While he yokes what he once called criminal.

Anyway, I never said he didn't do anything. Although I might say he doesn't do anything worth doing. But his priorities and mine are probably as far apart as you imagine. :)

And Roh didn't say these sorts of things make "A Tyrant.' He said they lead to tyranny. Please keep up on the surveillance state daily news and tell me that's not where we're headed.

I wont vote for the guy, his wife is a big Goldman Sachs Exec, just another pos whos all about cronyism. I might bring myself to vote for Rand Paul if he gets the nod, looking like its going to be Gary Johnson again for me.

Surprise?

I'm actually surprised he even put forth a name. It's probably the first time he's ever directly addressed anything on this board other than Tebow.

Watching from the sideline, it very impressive on how fastly he moved from state attorney to potential presidential candidate. For what I understand he is very smart lawyer that successfully argued in front of the SCOTUS over a dozen times.

You may be right about 2008 being too soon, but Obama was the Dems most promising face of the future since July, 2004. Taco called it, and nearly everyone agreed. I missed his speech (and still haven't seen it)

He is a very smart guy with very dangerous ideas.

Dangerous ideas, yes, but not really much different than any other conservative that's come around the last 10 years or so. Just...angrier. That act isn't going to play on a national level.

I won't vote for anyone who is for limiting voting rights.

Scott Walker is a reptoid. I'm surprised that I'm the only one who sees it.
