Have you ever seen a less inspiring group of (potential) candidates? this list is the who’s who of Washington insiders, Over the hill lifetime politicians and no-chance businessmen. There is’nt one young, passionate and excited person, no one with new ideas or fire. The closest you get to an even remotely interesting candidate is Michelle Bachman, simply because she reaches out to the Tea party faction that may very well determine the race.
Now I’m not a Republican or a Democrat, but as a indie that has voted for both parties, as well as libertarian, the choice between these 18 candidates and Current president Obama is a bleak, bleak set of choices. There is nothing here to inspire me or give me any hope that the problems facing our country will be solved anytime soon.
And let’s be honest, the candidates with the most money ( Gingrich, Romney, Bachman, Huckabee) will be our only choices, and they will be the least desirable of all.
I look around the country and wonder, is this the best field we can offer? Because if we can’t do better, brighter, stronger and more passionate than this, do we really stand a chance?
