I participated in Right Wing News's Pre-Super Tuesday Blogger Poll. My answers were as follows:

1) If you had to pick the GOP's 2012 presidential nominee today, which of the following candidates would you select?
Newt Gingrich - not for any particular liking of the man, and taking into account his many policy inconsistencies, but he's at least articulate enough to make a believable case for governmental fiscal responsibility.

2) Which of the following candidates would you prefer as the GOP's nominee?
Newt v. Mitt: Newt - same reason.

3) Which of the following candidates would you prefer as the GOP's nominee?
Ron Paul v. Mitt: Ron Paul - sure, the terrorists will beat us up and take our lunch money after Paul pulls all American troops out of everywhere, but at least we'll have a balanced budget.

4) Which of the following candidates would you prefer as the GOP's nominee?
Mitt v. Santorum: Mitt: he's got prettier hair, so the girls will vote for him. Just have to pray that a rabidly tight-fisted Republican Congress will keep him from spending us into oblivion.

5) Which of the following candidates would you prefer as the GOP's nominee?
Mitt v. "as of yet unknown candidate selected at a brokered convention" - Mitt: after watching the hatchet job the media did on Palin, I'd prefer a candidate whose closet has already been thoroughly checked for skeletons.

6) Which of the following candidates would you prefer as the GOP's nominee?
Newt v. Rick Santorum - Newt: See above

7) Who do you think is more likely to win in November?
GOP v. Barack: GOP - I think it depends entirely on the price of gas and the level of unemployment, but I don't see either getting low enough to keep Obama in office.

Of course, I didn't think Obama could beat a war hero while we had troops in Iraq & Afghanistan, either, so I'm not betting my paycheck on this one.

  1. You could take the worst of all of them and create me a FrankenGOP and I would vote for that.

  2. 5) Which of the following candidates would you prefer as the GOP's nominee?>
    Mitt v. "as of yet unknown candidate selected at a brokered convention"
    - Mitt: after watching the hatchet job the media did on Palin, I'd prefer a candidate whose closet has already been thoroughly checked for skeletons.

    Except that Obamas tame newsies will pull something dammaging on Mittens right before the election.

  3. Kurt - that's quite possible, as the MSM has obviously been holding their fire on Mitt.

    However, since Romney's policy inconsistencies haven't killed him yet (he seems to be fairly skilled at coming up with excuses on those and then changing the subject), I still think the election's outcome rests on the state of the economy.

  4. Agree with Kurt. You don't waste good bad news just informing the public. You save it for when it matters. But allthe media has to do to torpedo Mitt is to remind republicans what we already know about him. Then we will all be home with a headache on election day.

    We must not have the same congress on my world.
