Our Best Hope?

I think Rudy might be shaping up to be our best hope for avoiding Hillary ’08. I’ll admit, I don’t trust Rudy on the gun issue, but I’ll say one thing for him; he said he wouldn’t sign a new assault weapons ban. That’s more than I can say for Bush, who I don’t think has honestly done much for us, other than signing the PLCAA.

Other than on guns, I honestly don’t have any problems with Rudy on too many other issues. He’s always been a little strange and quirky, but considering my other choices are Mitt the Shit, and John “Screw The First Amendment” McCain, so far, I’m starting to warm to the idea of Rudy.

I know there are other Republican candidates out there, but I’m looking for someone who can defeat Hillary Clinton. I don’t think I have to explain to anyone how much of a disaster a Clinton presidency would be for us.

Of course, if the Democrats run Bill Richardson, that could alter the whole equation. But if you want my take, Hillary has already been anointed. Obama is just trying to get some exposure for his real run in 2012 if Hillary doesn’t win.

    I know that he hasn’t officially announced his candidacy, but what about Newt Gingrich? He’s a really good “idea man”, and he isn’t the right-wing loony that everyone thinks he is. Sure, some people have a negative image of him, but I think he’d trounce anybody in a debate to mitigate that.

    Newt’s been on the shelf too long. He’s over his expiration date.

    Not to mention that he will start out trailing and no democrat candidate will need to debate him, thus negating his superior intellect as an inducement to vote for him.

    To be honest, though, I still remember his hissy fit over which hatch on AF1 he had to use. It was obviously an intended affront by Bill Clinton, but Newt’s immature reaction to it, makes his judgment suspect in my opinion.

    “…he said he wouldn’t sign a new assault weapons ban.”

    And a politician’s word is worth how much?

    Like I said, I don’t really trust the guy. But I don’t trust the current president on this issue either.
