    Who Would You Like to Have Seen As President

    Considering you don't like any of the three remaining candidates who would you have liked to see as President ?

    My First Choice All along was Ron Paul and I would have loved to see Newt Run but he did not. I think Newt is a very intelligent man who would have made a great President.

    the point of this thread is that people like to complain about the candidates, but if there were better options, they would have run.

    after 8 years of Bush you'd think people would be grateful for any change. Guess not.

    You imply that nothing could be worse than what we have, so "any" choice is better.

    Such implications often lead to exactly that...something worse.

    I definitely want change. I am a conservative who is upset with Bush because he deceived the conservative base.

    What I want is someone who will govern as he says he/she will and who thinks with conservative disposition. As such, I would like to see Huckabee and, if the special interest ties are not too deep, Newt (even if he looks like a charicature.) A lot of what Ron Paul says resonates with me, but I think the time is wrong for him.

    As best as is possible in the realm of politics, I think these guys are pretty much "WYSIWYG."

    My preference during the primaries was Fred Thompson.

    Ideally, I would have liked to have seen a Colin Powell John McCain ticket.

    I would have preferred candidates like Newt and Powell for the Republicans and Barney Frank and Bill Bradly for the Dems and maybe a third party with Hagel and Bloomberg.

    REALLY, bitonti, is THAT right? Thank you SO much, you're SO smart. There's NO WAY that ANYONE could be worse than Bush.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I've got to DROP WOLF BAIT.

    Exactly....Cook a meat loaf in the porcelain saucepan. That's what the Bushie presidency has amounted to.

    Carter was worse - hands down. If he would have dealt well with the midEast and Iran, not only would we not have lived thruogh 20% inflation, but radical Islam would likely have much less significance.

    I am down on Bush (not so much for the involvement in war as for his lack of fiscal restraint and mismanagement post Victory speech.) But sometimes what you don't do is worse. Carter's ineffectiveness .............. from the monetary to the kidnappings to the Olympics to the Middle East, Post Carter Syndrome has enabled the planetary dissonance that continues to this day.

    If I voted for the worst President in the history of the union twice i'd be bitter too.

    Maybe you can cling to guns and religion to get you through this tough time.

    The roots of the ME problem go back way before Jimmy Carter.
