    The GOP has no one fresh, new and not in legal trouble to nominate.

    If they put up Ryan or Romney (again) they will surely lose and everyone else is either in legal trouble, about to be in legal trouble, or is named Huckabee.

    I'm not so sure Chris Christie is out of the 2016 run. What do people around the country care about a little political power play in New Jersey? As long as he's not indicted, he should be fine.

    Oh, they will put some fresh money in Newts pocket, stand him up, brush him off, and send him right out to clean Christie right up.

    Then he does the circuit, first the Davids, then FOX, and because both sides, Christy and whoever else they find they can prop up long enough to make it a horse race, instead of a rational discussion, will form the Stupid Party, "never mind the shit in our hair" clown posse, and it's off to the races to see whether disinterest fails to trump teh stupid. Also assholes, racists, bigots and theocrats.

    Game on kids! It's gonna be great!

    Or Jeb Bush/Marco Rubio.

    Why is Hillary inevitable? She could be challenged. She's not a very likable person like her husband or Obama (was). She's shrill and not genuine. Broke too. She said so. :roll:

    "She's shrill and not genuine."

    Hence the name Wonder Witch. Very fitting.

    Jeb is probably not going to run for two reasons:

    1. HIs last name is a turn off to too many swing voters based on family predecessors, especially his brother.
    2. He knows he can't beat Hillary.

    Rubio isn't smart enough to know he can't beat Hillary, but he probably won't run because he knows his party has alienated Latinos to the point that outside of Florida he would stand to gain nothing by his ethnicity.

    As far as Hillary being inevitable, yes she is and she is also going to win. The GOP has too many defects to succeed in a national election. We've discussed them ad nauseum, i.e., e.g. the above stated alienation of Latinos and for that matter all minorities through their idiotic stand on immigration reform http://talkingpointsmemo.com/livewire/john-mccain-immigration-reform-2016 , their denial of climate change http://www.marketwatch.com/story/the-1-big-reason-gop-will-lose-the-presidency-in-2016-2014-06-07 , http://www.dailypaul.com/320429/the-1-big-reason-gop-will-lose-the-presidency-in-2016 , their foreign relations vision and strategy is highly defective and although supported by the industrial military complex is not supported by voters http://antiwar.com/blog/2014/04/02/why-the-gop-will-lose-16-hint-its-spelled-s-h-e-l-d-o-n/ and their veiled support of big government, their deserved reputation as the party of intolerance and their support of the status quo of tax breaks for the wealthy and increased military spending, neither of which garners them swing votes http://reason.com/blog/2014/06/15/3-reasons-eric-cantor-lost-and-why-repub?utm_source=huffingtonpost.com&utm_medium=referral&utm_campaign=pubexchange_article .

    Buckle your seat belt, Bill, because the women of America are going to vote her in no matter how much you dislike it. If you think a second Romney run at the job will draw much more support than before, you have been standing in front of microwave antennae too long. This country is prime and ripe for a woman president and running against a Mormon, a wealthy Mormon no less, a caught in many lies already Mormon to boot, means the women voters will flock to give Hillary the reigns.

    Face the fact, you are so far out of the main stream of thought that anybody but an old guard Republitard turns you off. That's OK. There are millions that are like you. Just not enough millions. Sorry.

    The Stupid Party, who thinks you are stupid, will get Hilary elected because most of the people they think are stupid aren't.

    If you don't want her, back somebody awesome!

    And there is the problem right there.
