Hey, I just got a bill for $2,479.54 for a doctor's visit. Whew. Could've been MUCH more. Finally, I have the option to sell body parts.

I wouldn't vote for Christie now if he personally came to my house and handed me a million in cash.

I'm sure obama will find some excuse to suspend it. After all, he's not done remaking America yet. And of course, the libs will agree with him in lockstep.

Good for sticking to your principles. I'm not so strong, stalin would get my vote if he gave me a million bucks.

To be fair, 4 years' time can heal a lot of butthurt.

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread

So Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Mitch Daniels, Jon Huntsman, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan in the 2016 primary?

If the crazy right gets to choose the winner again, that means Huntsman has no shot since he couldn't even get more votes than Bachmann.

Essentially, I think it better to not pay him any attention.

Told my younger son earlier this afternoon that their margin is so small, they absolutely have to expand their map. My guess, you will see something more akin to Gingrich's immigration policy adopted. Or better yet, President Bush's.

They need to come up with a new plan for immigration, ease up on absolute limits on abortion and stop thinking they can nation build around the world.

Chris Christie says "Fuck youse all!" to the GOP and runs as a democrat, and barely beats Rick Santorum in a vicious White House battle.

Again? When was the last time it happened?

Believe me, if Huntsman got the GOP nomination in 2016 you would be calling him right wing nut by June. McCain and Romney were both moderates before the Dem/media machine got through with them.

My guess is Rubio, Christie, or Jeb Bush as being the Republican nominees.

Re: The 2016 Presidential Election thread

I think Warren's name is definitely going to come up. Whether she has aspirations is a different matter. To me, she's an even more intelligent and definitely more likeable woman candidate than Hillary. I'd love to see her in a debate. I think she would destroy anyone the Republicans would put up if the most recent group of candidates is any indication.
