Why don't some of these

by TONI H / February 13, 2013 9:39 PM PST

guys actually run for President? I've often wondered why such highly intelligent, well and plain spoken, educated political commentators who can actually dissect and get the message across never consider running themselves?

Breitbart (rest in peace) and Levin and Krauthammer (sp?)....would any consider becoming speech writers for candidates, if nothing else?

Breaking down BO's SOTU speech.........

IF you want a politician that will

where he blasted President Obama's State of the Union Address as being like something "Fidel Castro" would deliver. Levin slammed Obama for not abiding by the U.S. Constitution,

Because they're lying divisive blowhards?

Breitbart (if he was still alive)? Seriously? As polarized as things are now, you think the solution is people who contribute to that polarization?

2016 will likely be Hillary vs. Christie, though he may end up running as an Independent, which would be just one more nail in the Republican party's coffin.

IMO, you've just described perfectly the Obama campaign we endured last year.

Because it is too much hard work,and doesn't pay well enough

These guys are millionaires from just sitting at a typewriter and letting the urine flow. If you mistake it for Dom Perignon or even clean water, that's fine with them. They're all conservative ideologues who would be eaten alive in a real debate with even modest fact checking. They're opinion mongers, not good enough to even be demagogues who actually have to mobilize enough people to actually accomplish something even getting elected.

Demagogues, Huey P. Long, William Jennings Bryant.

It's because they are...."such highly intelligent, well and plain spoken, educated political commentators who can actually dissect and get the message across". Who really wants to be head of the growing ghetto that America is becoming? Oh wait, I know! A Ghetto Organizer.

Don't you realize the motivation
by James Denison / February 14, 2013 2:26 PM PST

behind what Obama does? It's Ghetto thinking. Remember numerous riots throughout the past decades what happens in the ghettos? Looting. That's what Obama is engaged in right now. Looting America for all he can before he has to lose office. Not for himself, but for those he believes "deserves it", more than those who "have it". It's Ghetto Blaster Loot, Pillage, and Run political tactics he learned as an "Organizer".

He probably picked up all those tactics in between servings of fried chicken and watermelon, taking breaks only to chase white women and tap dance.

......of accusing someone else of the very thing he just did. Just more trolling.

why would anyone sensible today?
by Roger NC / February 15, 2013 7:27 AM PST

doesn't matter what you try to do, one side or the other is going to call you the devil and try to cruxify you.

No reasonable, sensible individual can win reelection if he/she ever won election to congress or president.

Even if a honest man gets elected, he can't get reelected without owing his soul.
