    How did a liberal progressive sociaIist like New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie get 16% of a conservative vote. Jeb Bush came in 3rd? His family gave us 0bama. What are these creeps thinking? If these RINOs want another sociaIist & warmonger, just leave 0bama in office.

    • FreedomTrainUSA

      A True Conservative wins…followed by to USELESS RINOS…Chirstie and Jeb Bush….We certainly do not need another RINO Bush…

      You have to understand that Michigan is a democrat state, no matter what they do to change it. The current governor is a Republican and has done some good things to balance the budget…but there’s a tendency to ‘accommodate’ the dems when he should have stood his ground. Guess it takes time…..

  • Alan

    Christie is the caboose on a train to nowhere. As long as we have disloyal bozos like him in the party that’s exactly where we are headed.

  • tncdel

    That’s really sad. RINO Christie shouldn’t be anywhere on that list. And Ted Cruz should be 1st. Unlike Rand Paul, Cruz is OPPOSED to amnesty, despite being Hispanic, because Cruz puts America’s best interests first.

    Rand Paul is good on most issues, but his support of amnesty with conditions is unacceptable. Anyone with an IQ above that of a turnip should be able to realize that amnesty would only serve to attract millions more job-stealing illegals here.

    The ONLY way to stop the illegal alien invasion: MAKE THINGS AS TOUGH AS POSSIBLE on the illegals, so they will self-deport back to Mexico, etc. at their own expense because they get to hate it here so much. We certainly can’t afford to deport over 20 million illegals. Plus most would only come right back if we tried.

      Christe is POS; enf said

      • James

        100 percent agree, Rand Paul is a good man, but probably not electable. Ted Cruz is my choice right now.

        • Oldmonkey

          Prefer the bigger “L” of Rand and a moderate “C”, but could easily vote for a moderate “L” with a big “C”. Better yet, pair them either order.

          Directing the Liberation Party is worse than herding cats. About the only things we agree on are limited government, personal liberty, and personal responsibility. Some lean right, some left, and others it takes great effort to differentiate from true anarchists.

        • Betta

          Sadly, Cruz in ineligible. I like him. He is the only one standing up for the rights of We The People.
          HEY BUT WAIT!! We already have an illegal president who has NEVER applied for US citizenship. How do I know? He traveled here as a foreign student from Indonesia to get an education. Born in Kenya raised in Indonesia. No record of him applying for US citizenship. He is as illegal as his crimes.

    • Amfer Ferg

      Not a fan of Rand Paul – too flip-floppy for me. I’ll take Ted Cruz all the way.

      • Betta

        Same here, Amfer. Same here. Rand is super disappointing flipflopping all over the place. I have no idea what he REALLY stands for. Nothing like his dad.

  • Wellarmed

    Based on former CPAC polls, I am not too surprised, but as I said before I do not feel that the Republican party will allow Rand to be the standard bearer, and if they do it will only be under certain conditions (positions mapped out for him to follow) which will put him inline with the puppet we currently have in office.

    I tend to bust Rands balls more than others because I expect more than the same line of crap that keeps getting spoon fed to us from the RNC.

    I assume that he will begin to follow the same Mitt Romney play book here soon, and begin to flip flop like a fish out of water if he should become the nominee. I would be surely caught off guard if he sticks to his guns (his past voting record) rather than towing the company line.

    He should begin discussions with former New Mexico Governor Johnson about a possible split party ticket if he wishes to garner any Libertarian votes, as based on past experiences at the last RNC the wounds run deep.

    • Oldmonkey

      If Paul don’t run mid right or hard right Liberation, next time I’m voting party. I’m tired of mid- lefty Republicans, and pretending to be Republican Democrats like Christe. I voted for Palin not McCain, and Romney because he was unfortunately last man standing; not next time.

    • Betta

      “…begin to flip flop like a fish out of water…”
      He’s already doing that BIG time. Crossed that flip flopper off my list long ago.

  • Sam

    RINOs and demoncraps will be voted out next election by the droves. We have had enough of the corruption and evil coming out of the White House.

  • Judicious

    Christie is an irritating loose cannon with more Maggie’s Drawers than being on target. Lots of “oomph”, but zero statesmanship. (I’m a New Jerseyan who once had hopes for Christie.)

  • paendragon

    Muzbag Christie?! .. and this is why the GOP will continue to LOSE ELECTIONS.

  • Alex

    Please nominate the race-baiting Rand Paul—he will insure eight more years of a non-GOP White House.

    If you losers don’t select Paul, PLEASE pick Sarah Palin or Ted Cruz—all would make a perfect Official Teabagger Lamb to the Slaughter to be eviscerated by our first woman president, Hillary…

    • James

      Up yours Alex, get your head out of Oblamo’s dark hole. In what possible way do you think Paul is race baiting? I happen to like Allen West from Florida, so don’t bother trying to call me a racist.
      The biggest racist in the world is B.H.O. followed closely by Jessie Jackson and Al Sharpton.

    • jmach11

      Claiming racism is all you liberals have.

    There is so much government damage in the wake of the past century that reversing, or even attempting to turn the ship around is going to be monumental, and dam near impossible given the governments accumulated debt of 17 TRILLION dollars (soon to have a depth of nearly 20 TRILLION). I suspect that there will be separation of states before this is over with, and individual states governments will have to fight for legitimacy when city after city goes bankrupt, and is thrown into economic poverty. Placing all hopes on one man was a complete failure to the tune of 7 TRILLION additional government debt in just 4 years, continuing this line of thinking will end this country. Only a fool believes that a one man election can solve the unsolvable in a 4 year term, or by adding an additional 4, which historically has proven to be a huge mistake, and is something we will experience once again with devastating affects! The country has never been in such dire need of an enema as it does right now. It’s time to flush the excrement out of the pips, smash the money printing presses (the unconstitutional FED a.k.a the corrupted Central Banks, and evict the government bureaucracy that is strangling this country.

    • IsThisAmerica

      You got it!

  • Robert Messmer

    Kind of wonder just how many candidates they were voting for. Top 5 only got 74% of the vote. I realize we are not talking about democrats where they manage to get 110-130% of the vote, but should have gotten closer to 100% than this. The lieutenant governors vote managed to make it to 100% with only 2 candidates.

  • Betta

    Neither one would get my vote. Paul is a flip flopper and Christie is an obama brown noser
