Thoughts on '08: Republicans: Rumsfeld

I think the 2008 Presidential Elections will be the most vicious, divisive, ridiculous election yet. This year the Democrats will probably pick another loser: Shrillary won't win, Obama won't win, Biden won't win, Kucinich won't win, Edwards won't win, Gore won't win... it's slim pickens for the Democrats, and unless they can pull a Lieberman out of their hoohoo's - that is a Democrat who has broad appeal on both sides of the aisle, and who can be trusted with foreign policy and waging the war on Terror - the Democrats are going to have another disappointing national election.

If the Democrats can't pick a winner, then the election becomes the Republicans' to lose; but conservative America cannot get too excited. There were lessons to be learned in '06. Complacency will not win the election. Winning this election is going to take a lot of hard work, and a true conservative candidate who can motivate our base. The Republicans lost '06 because the Republican candidates had lost their way. They weren't conservative fiscally, and they lacked the moral conviction to do the right thing. Most of the Republicans who did lose lost to Democratic candidates who ran on a more conservative platform than the incumbent Republicans.

For the Republicans to win, they will need a charismatic, intelligent, well spoken candidate who truly represents the ideals of conservatism and is a patriot through and though. To that end, I see no candidate better qualified than this man:

Unfortunately for all of America, I am certain that Mr. Rumsfeld probably wouldn't even consider a run in '08. I think he can win. I think he would win. I think he would represent the best hope for all of America in the coming years.

Washington has no better-spoken, intelligent, dedicated patriot than Donald Rumsfeld. I just wish he would run. If you are on board, share this sentiment on your blog. I know that from one voice you can cause a murmur, from a murmur can come a chorus, and from a chorus can come a deafening rally cry. If we cry out loud enough, maybe Mr. Rumsfeld will hear us, and head our call.

From this blogger's perspective, Rumsfeld is MY first choice.
