GOP 2012 in a nutshell.

Last time I wrote about the 2012 Republican presidential hopefuls I expected the field to shrink as time went on. I am shocked to inform you that although three have dropped off (Pence, Thune, and DeMint), the field has widened not shrunk. They are in no particular order:

  • Palin-Fmr VP candidate, TV star, Fmr AK Gov, and momma grizzly.
  • Romney-Businessman, savior of the Olympics, Fmr MA Gov, and Mormon.
  • Huckabee-Front runner is the polls, Fmr AR Gov, Fmr pastor, and TV host.
  • Gingrich-Leader of the Contract with America, Fmr Speaker of the House political speaker, and author.
  • Barbour-MS Gov, Fmr RNC head, and southern insider.
  • Pawlenty-Fmr MN Gov, lawyer, and the guy I was rooting for to be McCain’s VP choice.
  • Santorum-Fmr PA Sen, pro-life leader, and homeschool dad.
  • Daniels-IN Gov, businessman, and wants a truce on the social issues.
  • Cain-Businessman, Tea Party speaker, speech at CPAC flopped, but speech at Conservative Principles Conference was great.
  • Roemer-WHO?!? That’s what I said. Fmr. LA Gov.
  • Paul (Ron)-Libertarian, TX Rep, Medical Dr, and Audit the Fed man.
  • Johnson-Creepy Libertarian, businessman, Fmr NM Gov, and only one to make this list who doesn’t even claim to be pro-life.
  • Bachmann-MN Rep, Fmr Tax Attorney, foster mom, and Tea Party leader.
  • Huntsman-Fmr UT Gov, Fmr Ambassador to China and Singapore, and musician. (Also a Mormon but doesn’t seem to impact his political profile as much as Romney).
  • Moore-Judge, his claim to fame is that he was fired over the 10 Commandments.
  • Trump-TV Star, professional celebrity, businessman, and real-estate mogul.
