They Don’t Sound Like Contenders
There have been eight Republican presidential debates so far this year. This should spark concern among Moore County residents.
Moore County has 25,506 registered Republicans, 18,067 registered Democrats, 16,910 who registered as unaffiliated, and 136 libertarians, as of Oct. 1. Also, many of the unaffiliated voted in the 2010 Republican Primary election. Therefore, one can make an assumption that most Republicans watched these debates to try to determine their next presidential will be.
Here’s my take on these debates to all the Democrats and unaffiliated who did not take time to watch these debates:
— Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn): repeal Obamacare; Obama a one-term president; anchor babies.
— Herman Cain, former CEO of Godfather’s Pizza: 9-9-9.
Newt Gingrich, former speaker of the house: master of the one-liner; previously supported individual health care mandate; Obama failed leadership.
— Jon Huntsman, former governor of Utah: the only middle-of- the-road candidate; skipped Las Vegas GOP debate; no trade war with China; will have an up-hill battle to win the nomination.
— Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas): We have too much health care in this country; get rid of the Federal Reserve; stop all foreign aid.
— Rick Perry, governor of Texas: Social Security is a Ponzi scheme; Texas created more government and low-wage jobs than any other state; immigration problems.
— Mitt Romney, former governor of Massachusetts: Flip-flops on most topics; Obama failed, not a leader; repeal Obamacare; let home foreclosure continue; allow homeowners to lose their homes and become renters.
— Rick Santorum, former U.S. Senator (R.-Pa): “Mr. Values”; keep attacking Romney and Perry; has no chance of winning.
With this group of GOP contenders, does President Obama have anything to worry about?
