I'm rooting for Paul Ryan in 2016.  He was the best thing on the Republican ticket this time!

Finally???

Hardly!!!

2012 may be over, but the candidates for 2016 are already lining up at the starting gate, and because Obama cannot run for a 3rd term, we'll have twice as many candidates with twice as much noise as in 2012. Among the candidates likely to run are . . .

Republicans
ex-Governor Jeb Bush of Florida
ex-Secretary of State Condi Rice
Governor Chris Christie of New Jersey
Senator Mario Rubio of Florida
Governor Bobby Jindal of Louisiana
Governor Nikki Haley of South Carolina

Democrats
Secretary of State Hillary Clinton
San Antonio (Texas) Mayor Juan Castro
Vice President Joe Biden
Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York
Governor Martin O'Malley of Maryland
Senator Kirsten Gillbrand of New York
Chicago (Illinois) Mayor Rahm Emanuel

And I'd add one not mentioned in the newest issue of "Time" Magazine.

Republican Governor Rick Perry of Texas.

See you all, or at least some of you, in 2016.


If Rick Perry decodes to try again I hope he's humiliated even worse. The man is a self-serving jerk who has no business in the White House. I wish he wasn't our governor. I've been keeping my eye on Bobby Jindal of Louisiana....wondering if he might really make a decent president. Gov.Chris Christie seems like a bully to me....maybe I'm wrong but I just haven't liked any of what I've seen. New Jersey folks.....let me know if I'm wrong.

I've worked at a few universities in my day, and I don't ever recall the Governor of the State having, or trying to exert, that level of micro-control.

I'm not even sure it's possible.

The State legislatures provide the budget for public schools, including universities.  The administrations of those schools, including Board of Regents and the like, decide how those monies are spent.  What programs get how much is up to them...not the Governor.

So, unless you can provide some sort of documented proof that the Governor is controlling the schools in this way, I'm going to have call "CRAP" on your claim.  Sorry.

In contrast, I have found several recent articles that seem to show he supports similar programs at LA's publicly funded institutions of higher learning:

1. Legislatures approve budgets.

2. Then refute the articles I listed that demonstrably show his actions are quute the opposite of your unsubstantiated claims.

Oh no, you're right Rick Perry is a jerk. 

I truly disliked CHRIS CHRISTIE until Hurricane Sandy.  Not being very political, and though I live here in NJ, I don't know much about him.  But his casting politics aside in the wake of our disaster made an admirer out of me.  If he were to run, I will look hard at his record.

I think Gov. Christie is a very effective governor for New Jersey, but I seriously doubt he will ever win the GOP nomination.  He is too far left of the party's base, and tends to come across as a bit abrasive and short-tempered - which works great in NJ, but not so much in the South!

Not to mention he's so damned fat.

Actually, we in the South are generally OK with fat. Cheers

Trevor, is that president of South Africa or president of the U.S.? Or are you going to make South Africa the 51st state, so you can be president of both?
