from The Blaze:

Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.) made a bold prediction about the remaining presidential elections in his lifetime during an interview with Glenn Beck that aired Thursday.

“I think Republicans will not win again in my lifetime … unless they become a new GOP, a new Republican Party,” Paul said evenly. “And it has to be a transformation. Not a little tweaking at the edges.”

Paul remained noncommittal about his own speculated presidential ambitions, but said he believes people “from both parties” would rally to a candidate that said “we just need to turn over on all this” and advocated issues like term limits, reading the bills, and single-purpose bills.

The senator expressed little interest in the formation of a third party.

“I think that … you can transform a party,” he maintained. “…I’ve worked for a third party candidate, a guy that was my dad. It’s very difficult. The laws are set against you.”

The sad truth is that this is the way the far Left believes, and the crooner is NOT AFRAID TO SAY IT

     With Mitt Romney have all but clinched the GOP nomination for POTUS, the talk has now turned to the “LIST” of potential candidates for the 2nd slot on the ticket. The names that have been fielded range from Marco Rubio to Paul Ryan (He has my endorsement, for what its worth).

     But perhaps choosing a career politician is too expected, too much the norm, not enough to rally the masses to bring an “END TO THE ERROR” that was made in 2008.

       From the Daily Caller:

CNBC reporter Rick Santelli’s biggest fan couldn’t talk him into running for the White House.

But Jeff Kahn of the Draft Santelli for President effort admits he’s now on a new mission: creating some buzz in favor of presumptive GOP nominee Mitt Romney choosing Santelli as his running mate.

“Gov. Romney’s best, if not only, chance of defeating President Obama in November will be with non-politician Rick Santelli as his running mate,” Kahn said Friday.

He elaborated: “Rick Santelli complements Mitt Romney as a candidate. Choosing any career politician to run with him will not counter the voters’ concerns with Gov. Romney.”

“Rick’s populist appeal is broadly-based and includes, but is not limited to, traditional Republicans, conservatives, Tea Party members, independent voters, disenchanted former Obama supporters, and disenchanted with Congress, if not disenfranchised in general, Americans,” he said.

      With the distinct possibility that the New Hamshire primaries could take place as early as DECEMBER 6th of THIS YEAR, new polls released today show Herman Cain has taken the front spot in the GOP race.

        Both Public Policy Poll and the NBC/Wall Street Journal Poll showed siminlar results.

        It is still early, and as I see it, it is going to be a bumpy ride, right up to election night 2012.

     After saying no he would not run, then mulling the idea, then appearing at the Reagan Library at Nancy Reagan’s invitation, then sayin he was definitely not running, then aides saying he was agin mulling over the idea, at 1pm today, Gov. Chris Christie will announce his 2012 POTUS intentions. Once and for all ( maybe).

        This “jury” is still out on Chris Christie, but, can we see a CHRISTIE/ CAIN ticket for 2012 ??

UPDATE :  Does the GOP Field change if Christie enters, before the next debate?

UPDATE 2: FOX is reporting that close sources say a POTUS run by Christie is a “No”.

UPDATE 3: Christie: NJ, you’re stuck with me.

RT @RNCResearch: Even Democrats Are Saying…Obama’s Economic Leadership Is Sorely Lacking.

President Obama said he would be a post-partisan President- do you agree that he has fulfilled that promise?

As the country faces fiscal calamity, Obama’s schedule has been chock full of special access gatherings w/celebs

(Weekly Standard) — Perhaps it’s sour grapes, or perhaps it’s a recent reawakening, but in a speech by Nancy Pelosi at Tufts University earlier this week, the former speaker of the House had some advice for her Republican colleagues in particular and some reflections on elections in general:

To my Republican friends: take back your party. So that it doesn’t matter so much who wins the election, because we have shared values about the education of our children, the growth of our economy, how we defend our country, our security and civil liberties, how we respect our seniors. Because there are so many things at risk right now — perhaps in another question I’ll go into them, if you want. But the fact is that elections shouldn’t matter as much as they do . . . But when it comes to a place where there doesn’t seem to be shared values then that can be problematic for the country, as I think you can see right now.
