Dear Republican Party

You've got about 18 months until the next presidential election, and I'm not impressed with your efforts so far.  Others say it better than I can, but let me put this into a familiar theme to help you understand my current opinion of the choices you seem to be putting forward:

Drill Sergeant DaddyBear:  Well, well, Private RNC.  Show me your war face!
Private RNC:  Sir!
Drill Sergeant DaddyBear:  Your war face!  Like this:  REAGAN!  Now show me your war face for 2012!
Private RNC:  Huckabee!
Drill Sergeant DaddyBear:  Are you kidding me!?  Sound off like you got a pair!
Private RNC:  uhhhh... ROMNEY!
Drill Sergeant DaddyBear:  Try again!
Private RNC:  PALIN!
Drill Sergeant DaddyBear:  Better, but not good enough!
Private RNC:  TRUMP!
Drill Sergeant DaddyBear:  Getting colder, braindead!
Private RNC:   GIIINNNNGGGRRRIIIICCCCHHHH!!
Drill Sergeant DaddyBear:  IS THAT THE BEST YOU CAN DO YOU SPINELESS EXCUSE FOR A POLITICAL PARTY!??? THE BEST PART OF YOU IS SITTING AT THE BOTTOM OF GOLDWATER'S FOOT LOCKER!  YOU DON'T DESERVE TO ROLL AROUND IN RONALD REAGAN'S SPITTLE!  YOU DON'T IMPRESS ME, WORK ON IT!

Now that you know how I really feel, let me make a prediction:  You are probably going to nominate some milksop because "it's his turn", the TEA Party movement is going to turn on you (remember them?  They're the reason Boehner holds the gavel and Mitch McConnell negotiates from a position of power with Dingy Harry), and Obama is going to get four more years to thoroughly roger our republic.

It's been 20 years since you nominated someone I actually respect.Pull your head out of your 4th point of contact, nominate a charismatic conservative, and make me want to keep my affiliation with your party.  I'm tired of voting for the lesser of two evils.

I like Gingrich,he is brilliant, but he has baggage out the ass(pardon the pun). I am for Herman Cain and maybe Colonel West on the ticket. We have to get some new people, not the same washed up people that couldn't make the cut last time.

The Queen and I were discussing this very topic the other night. 2012 is the Republicans' election to lose. If they put up any of the names discussed so far, it's going to go badly for our fair Republic. The thing that troubles me most would be if the Republicans put up a strong candidate and Trump tries to be Ross Perot. Anyone care to remember how that worked out? The Republicans would be smart to cut a deal with him that he gets the VP slot to someone channeling Reagan from the great beyond.

I don't see Trump taking second fiddle on a ticket. He's too much of a "me first" type. I could see him saying the right things to peel off a good chunk of the conservative wing and running as an independent to keep the Repubs from winning.
