    Eh, why? Taft was fatter.

    Either the republican party has Christie as its candidate and possibly wins, or chooses another far right candidate, and the party dies. Personally hoping for the second option, since that has a possibility of forming a multi party system, instead of just 2

    Because politics is about image now, which is sad. I bet people already have their slander against Christie lined up. It already happened last time when he was trying to get a nomination.

    I'd vote for him fat or skinny though.

    Nah. We would just go to three parties. Worst IMO because it just splits votes.

    Not a chance - not even the GOP is dumb enough to run an idiot like Palin - even Rove would rather have Obama in the White House.

    It might be Clinton/???? vs Rubio/Bush in 2016 - but there is a LOT of time before we narrow it down. Christie is awesome, but he's too fat.

    And don't forget the parade of idiots that the GOP will have to roll out before they get a half-way decent candidate.

    if you had any relevance to the 2016 election, there is a mexican american governor who is gonna run for president, seeing as he will be old enough to run for president.

    I guess I'm kind of confused why you bumped this rather pointless old thread?

    Two answers, you pick which one best suits your current needs:

    1.) Didn't know it was old, wanted to discuss it

    2.) Why the heck do you care at all, and why are you wasting your time answering if you don't care? If you do, why are you pretending not to?

    Cheers!

    I was just curious as to why you bumped it, relax, I didn't say you did anything wrong.

    I had some extra nerd-rage left over, had to get it OUT!

    I think the next nominations is an interesting topic - especially when we can look back at 2013 and see who was being discussed compared with who is now running. Do you have any thoughts (that I realize would be pure speculation, just as mine are)?

    I'm pretty sure I already posted in thread, but I don't think Hillary has any intention of running for president in 2016 and I believe Marco Rubio is going to be put up as the GOP candidate because the GOP infrastructure, as ridiculous as people want to believe them, understand demographics and how they are losing that battle. Their only choice is to either relax on their social policies, which they can't do without alienating a bunch of their base, or put up Rubio and hope he swings the Latino vote their way.

    Marco Rubio seems fairly likely for the GOP nomination.

    Too soon to tell who is going to run for the Democratic Party.

    At any rate, I'm more excited for 2014 at this moment, seeing as it's closer than 2016, and I'll be very, very politically active for Democrats in Texas.

    I wouldn't be surprised if the GOP tries to run someone who is hispanic to say, "hey look guys we actually care about you (and especially your vote since it looks like we need it now.)" lol. Ignore that the majority of our base is absolutely stupid regarding the issue of illegal immigration and cant research the internet to pull up an article that isn't from fox news.

    The GOP would run over every minority they can if they could. Now they cant. So they'll pick one to try to edge just enough votes. "Someone who is nice to you, but rude to the waitress is still not a very nice person." I think this quote applies.

    And Christie didn't let New Jersey vote on marriage equality so I'm pretty sure he won't be getting my vote unless the Democrat is absolutely horrid. Also, Christie's weight is almost politically moot for me compared to his thin-skinned personality.

    I wonder if it isn't the republican party that has gone so far right, but instead the collective political unit including the democratic party that has gone so far right and pushed them into a corner where it's impossible to compete. The GOP's candidates are going to have to be more libertarian at least or that train isn't moving anywhere.

    Maltese Tiger will be our first third party president. He's the only leader wise and deadly enough to watch over our country. A new era will begin, all that's left is to believe in it. First tiger president trumps first female president any day.

    OT: Palin could never run for anything ever again. Alaska might take her back, but no one else would.

    Hopefully the Republican nominee is Senator Rand Paul, but it will probably be Marco Rubio (Really hope it's not Christie)

    My Predicitions:

    Republicans will make modest gains in the senate during the mid term elections(probably won't gain a majority but its definitely possible with what seats are up for reelection) and retain the house

    As far as 2016 goes Republicans will take back the Presidency since the economy will still be stuck in a rut thanks to obama's failed economic policy.

    This^. You have to break it to fix it. At some point the GOP has to decide. The GOP is not even an option anymore for lots of voters.

    Christie will switch parties and run as a Dem with Castro.

    U.S. economy is actually on the rise right now, almost to pre-recession levels.

    Also, Obama isn't the sole setter of economic policy.

    Hastings, that isn't the GOP tagline. 'Blame the President' is how they roll when Dems are in the WH, and when they have it the tagline is 'If you question the president, you are a traitor'. It is kind of sad, really.

    I just get irritated when people say the president is the person who controls all the economic policy in the country.

    He has some say, but the Republican controlled House still has to approve it.

    Not a chance. Christie deals with Dem idiocy in New Jersey daily. He's tired of people in his part doing dumb things, but he's hardly going to switch parties.
