Wondering if it is going to end up being one of these (if Christie gets in there)....

WE were just talking about their differences.

Too early to say....

Perry...dont have a good feel about him, at all. Poor, poor, poor debate showing...but would I support him if he was the nominee??? You bet!

Romney...a bit weasley...but would I support him if he was the nominee??? You bet!

Christie...straigh forward, but dont think he will go in. Likely, non issue...but would I support him if he was the nominee??? You bet!

Palin...,not in the running. Hope she doesnt run...but would I support her if she was the nominee??? You bet!

Paul...tea party darling???? Not in my opinion

Santorum....like him...gets too little attn in the debates.

Bachmann...almost time for her to get out....great lady, though

Cain....love him. Hope he is given more coverage.

Newt....best choice, unfortunately, too much baggage to have a prayer

those other two governors....time to give it up.

Just a few of my thoughts.

Christie isn't in the race.

Here's what strikes me about the GOP field of candidates. They're in disarray. Newt Gingrich came out and announced his candidacy and then made so many irrational statements that his campaign staff resigned en masse. Sarah Palin likes to milk publicity but is completely self-serving and thus, unreliable. Michele Bachmann was all the rage at the beginning of the month but has practically dropped off the radar. Ron Paul is the darling of the Tea Party but the Tea Party burned many bridges during the debt ceiling debacle and Paul's image be may be smirched by association.

Frankly, as an independent liberal, I wish them all perdition. As a citizen of the U.S., I would dearly love to see a candidate who could speak clearly, think quickly, and show a willingness to govern rather than score political points. So far, no luck on either wish!

Ron Paul is the Tea Party darling?
