I am becoming increasingly concerned about where we will be a year from now.
Right now every potential Republican challenger to President Obama is posturing, conducting research, visiting foreign capitals and getting their faces on any TV outlet that will call them. That's OK.
They are scrubbing statements they've made, reviewing positions they've held and scanning every article they've ever written to figure out where they stand or where they need to stand for the next 21 months. That's OK.
I really like a couple of these guys, but I really want them to grow backbones and forget about what the mealy-mouthed lefties will say when they stumble...and they WILL stumble at some point before the election. We all have, and we will in the future.
Life will throw curves and the lefties do it better than anyone. I want my next Republican president to stand at the plate and have the courage to swing for the fences, even when a curve is thrown. If they practice swinging at them now they can hit them well in 2012!
I want a straight talking, tough minded person who doesn't shy away when tough questions or tough positions are posed to them...and if they do it drinking a beer every now and then, GOOD ON EM!
