The GOP expected to have a field of 16 candidates on 7/21/2015

At least it is a “small” field of GOP candidates running for President of the United States in 2016 (sarcasm); who will be invited to the first debate?

There are a couple candidates in the race that I can’t get too excited about, but I am trying to remain open minded and definitely could support someone like the Ohio governor, the moderate-conservative John Kasich. I figure he must have something going for him since he is currently the only Republican candidate attracting both my 20-something son and his 50-something dad. The GOP might be on to something here?



I still find it hard to believe voters re-elected Barack Obama over Mitt Romney in 2012 ?? I feel “out of sync” with the path our nation is on, and know I’m not alone.

The list of completive candidates for 2016 is growing, at least on the Republican side, but the only candidate with a deep-pocketed war chest for the Democrats is Hillary Clinton. She is capable of running the kind of ruthless social media and costly ground campaign that few others can compete with. That said, she comes with plenty of baggage even for loyal Democrats … who in the end will probably plug their nose and vote party line.

EDIT: Realized I posted this the day after my “Rat Zapper” post – hm, dark humor?
