Meet the Republicans: part deux


I am not an overwhelmingly big fan of our current POTUS.
I voted for him in 2008 but as many others do, I feel that I was sold a bill of goods that just didn't hold up to the ad slogans.  While I prize intellectualism, we seem to have a leader who appears wishy-washy rather than decisive.
That said, I will likely vote for him again in 2012 (that is if I decide to vote in what increasingly appears to be a "slave suggestion box.")  Why?  Well, what option do I really have?  Let's take a look:

Rick Perry: Or as I like to call him, Cowboy Bush the Sequel.  For a guy who screams like Yosemite Sam against "big government," he sure didn't have a problem mandating that all young girls in Texas get an STD vaccine.  

Mitt Romney: Or as I like to call him, "That Guy Who Lost Last Time."  Yeah, Obama has "failed" America with that pesky universal healthcare program...something not unlike what Romney did to Massachusetts not that long ago.  And they called John Kerry a "flip-flopper." And let us not forget one of Romney's more recent quotes, "Corporations are people, my friend." Oy.

Newt Gingrich: It was "patriotism" that led him to extramarital affairs and the abandonment of his cancer-stricken wife?  That's "conservative family values" for you.  I'd have more respect for this lummox if he would've just said "I was horny."

Herman Cain: It will take more than a marketing slogan like "9-9-9" to effectively repair our economic woes.  Additionally, there is evidence to suggest that Cain even lifted this idea from the computer game, Sim City 4.  And when he was asked if he was the political "flavor of the month," Cain compared himself to a flavor of ice cream...that has long since been discontinued.

Rick Santorum: Sorry.  One trigger-happy GOP-er is enough for one lifetime.  I think that by now, most of America is about as war-weary as you can get.

Jon Huntsman: Who?

Michelle Bachmann: Giggle...snicker...come on, really??

Ron Paul: While his standpoints are a bit radical, I like a guy who knows how to shake things up.  Were I forced to make a pick from the current crop of GOP, he would be the one.  As a matter of fact, I find Paul to be the only Republican in the race who is truly putting forth ideas.

And those are the alternatives to Obama.  All in all, this gives me the perfect campaign slogan for the Dems in 2012 and it is truly a ringing endorsement...

"Obama: C'mon...you could do worse."
