It’s not even 2015 yet and no candidate has declared that he or she is running, but the pollsters are already asking about who you’ll vote for in the November 2016 Presidential election. In this CNN poll, the choices for a Republican are Jeb Bush, Ben Carson, Chris Christie, Ted Cruz, Mike Huckabee, Bobby Jindal, John Kasich, Rand Paul, Mike Pence, Rick Perry, Rob Portman, Marco Rubio, Paul Ryan, Rick Santorum, or Scott Walker. The choices for a Democrat are Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, Andrew Cuomo, Martin O’Malley, Deval Patrick, Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren or Jim Webb. How many of these candidates could you envision being a successful President?
Priceless: . Got it on NewsBusters. Chris Christie, Scott Brown, Rob Portman, John Bolton, and the rest of t...
"The question remains whether the GOP will become the party of: Sen. Rand Paul, Ky., or Sen. Kelly Ayotte, N.H., on national security; The Gang of Eight or the Gang of Three (Sens. Mike Lee, Ted Cruz and Jeff Sessions) on immigration; Sen. Rob Portman, Ohio, or Rick Santorum on *** marriage; Broad-based appeal (e.g. Govs. Chris Christie, Gov. Scott Walker) or losing ideologues (Sharron Angle, Christine O'Donnell, Michele Bachmann)."
I am a huge Obama fan, but really enjoy watching the new GOP stars rising for the 2016 presidential primaries. So far it will be a very interesting crowd again for the Republicans... Who do you like and who will be their 2016 nominee (and who did I miss?)? -- Sen. Marco Rubio -- Gov. Rick Perry -- Speaker Newt Gingricht -- Sen. Rand Paul -- Rep. Paul Ryan -- Gov. Jeb Bush -- Gov. Chris Christie -- Gov. Jon Huntsman -- Sen. Rob Portman -- Rep. Eric Cantor
2. It wasn't the candidate(s). Some are already saying, "Romney was the wrong guy"; "He should have picked Marco Rubio to get Florida/Rob Portman to get Ohio/Chris Christie to get [someplace else]." With all due respect, these assessments are incorrect. Romney ran a strategic and well-organized campaign. Yes, he could have hit harder on Benghazi. But for those who would have loved that, there are those who would have found it distasteful. No matter what tactic you could point to that Romney could have done better, it would have been spun in a way that was detrimental to his chances. Romney would have been an excellent president, and Ryan was an inspired choice. No matter who we ran this year, they would have lost. See above.
2016? Yep a lot of names are starting to surface for the 2016 Presidential race. So far, I've heard Hillory Clinton, Joe Biden(??), Suzanna Martinez, Jeb Bush, Rob Portman, Bobby Jindal, Chris Christie, Haley Barber and more. Who catches your interest this early in the speculation. There are some pretty impressive names in the offing, don't you think?
OK. Chris Christie never really mentioned Mitt during his keynote speech at RNC. Then he hugs it out with the Pres in NJ a bug slap in the face to Mitt. My take is he doesn't want Mitt to win to set himself up to run in 2016. And I bet Mitt wishes he chose Rob Portman as a running mate right now.
Gov. Chris Christie & Sen. Rob Portman stumping for Romney in Ohio. Buckeye State is key in terms of electoral votes for Romney to win. .
Can you imagine any happier people than Rob Portman, Tim Pawlenty, Chris Christie, and Marco Rubio? These boys sure dodged a bullet.
Relax everyone. It's all figured out. Paul Ryan for president (or Mitch Daniels, or Rob Portman, or Chris Christie, or Marco Rubio, or Susana Martinez, or Bobby Jindal.if he keeps it up, Mitt can be O'bama's communications director. C'mon Mitt- the economy is bad and tanking, we're stealing from our kids, the middle east is on fire thanks to the power vacuum we're leaving, and you can't make the argument? Time for common sense and faith in individuals. btw, anyone seen the Gipper lately? Where'd he go???
Washington columnist Doyle McManus will report from the Republican National Convention in Tampa , Fla., Monday to Thursday, which will feature a who's who from the GOP in support of the Mitt Romney/Paul Ryan ticket. Speakers include Chris Christie , Marco Rubio , Rob Portman, Condoleezza R...
Romney would've done better picking Chris Christie or Bob McDonnell as his VP nominee. I know Tim Pawlenty is a sissy and Rob Portman is tied to the W. administration, but Paul Ryan is no salvation.
After months of intense speculation on who Mitt Romney would select - everyone from senators Kelly Ayotte and Marco Rubio to governors Bobby Jindal and Chris Christie - it comes down to a 42-year-old newbie congressman: Wisconsin Rep. Paul RyanIf that doesn't make some Republicans sweat just a tad, ...
~~There are several prominent candidates believed to be on his shortlist. The CatholicVote.org Research Team has compiled a dossier on seven candidates considered very likely to chosen to be Mitt Romney's running mate: Chris Christie, Marco Rubio, Rob Portman, Tim Pawlenty, Bobby Jindal, Bob McDonnell, and Paul Ryan.
First Paul Ryan, now Chris Christie. Conservative thought leaders are turning up the heat on Mitt Romney to go bold in his choice of running mate – and away from the “safe” choices of Rob Portman and Tim Pawlenty.
The vice-presidential picks were all over the board. Tim Pawlenty or Rob Portman got three votes, Bobby Jindal got three, Chris Christie got two, Allen West got 3.5, Condolleza Rice got two, Marco Rubio 3.5, and Herman Cain, Paul Ryan, Ted Nugent, Gene Simons, Jim Demint, Michelle Bachman, Walt Disney, Yoda, J.C. Watts and John McCain each got one. I note that one comment suggested " a relatively undecorated serviceman" as VP candidate, and that gave me pause. I hereby nominate myself. True, a got a medal or two in Vietnam, but that was long ago and I ain't no hero, so why not? I could use a nice part-time job. Scribble novels while I was presiding over the senate. A free house. Nice salary and benefits. *** I'm twice as smart as Joe Biden and better looking too. Why not?
He better pick someone like Chris Christie for VP. God please NO Tim Pawlenty or ROB PORTMAN!!!
Who will Mitt Romney pick as a running mate? My guess is he will pick someone more white, bland and boring than he is -- and that's either Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio or former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty -- there will be no game-changer like a Sarah Palin or Chris Christie because Romney doesn't want to be overshadowed or outshined by someone with personality (even if it's bad personality) -- Portman has ties to George W. Bush so my pick is Pawlenty. No the pick won't be Condoleeza Rice -- she is pro-choice and the GOP hates pro-choice and she has obvious GW Bush ties since she was sec. of state and signed off on the Iraq war ...
Condi Rice (great on foreign policy and...foreign policy and...foreign policy), Chris Christie (massive lightning rod (i.e. Palin on steroids)), Rob Portman (squish), or Tim Pawlenty (squishier). What happened to Rand Paul in this conversation?
So the next question becomes: who will be Romney’s running mate? The fine folks at Bovada Sportsbook are one step ahead of the matter and have already come up with the odds: Who will be the Republican Vice Presidential Nominee? Marco Rubio - -2/1 Rob Portman - -3/1 Chris Christie - -9/1 Paul Ryan - -9/1 Bob McDonnell - -10/1 Susana Martinez - -15/1 Condoleezza Rice - -18/1 Rick Santorum - -18/1 John Thune - -20/1 Mitch Daniels - -20/1 Rand Paul - -20/1 Bobby Jindal - -25/1 Nikki Haley - -25/1 Tim Pawlenty - -25/1 Jeb Bush - -30/1 Newt Gingrich - -50/1 Ron Paul - -50/1 Sarah Palin - -50/1 Donald Trump - -100/1 Herman Cain - -100/1 Clearly, Marco Rubio and Rob Portman are the favorites but don’t be surprised if New Jersey Governor Chris Christie makes a push. He’s as honest as they come and he’s quite blunt. President Barack Obama has been questioned about his record and what he’s done over the last four years by Republicans and Christie will definitely not skirt that – or any other – topic. J ...
The conventional wisdom about Mitt Romney’s vice-presidential short list, according to a handful of Romney insiders, may be wrong. Instead of picking a straitlaced Midwestern senator such as Ohio’s Rob Portman, or an outspoken northeastern Republican governor such as Chris Christie, there is a chanc...
Ohio is America's Battleground. New Quinnipiac poll shows the president leading Mitt Romney 46 to 44 percent, within the margin of error. Obama leads among women voters, Romney leads with men and Independents. On the VP watch, 26% of Ohioans believe Rob Portman should be on GOP ticket. That compares to 14% for both Chris Christie and Marco Rubio. On the health care law, 51% of Ohioans believe the Supreme Court should overturn it.
According to Yahoo!, Mitt Romney will pick about 5 people to be his running mate. Rob Portman, Nikki Haley, Kelly Ayotte, Paul Ryan, Bob McDonnell...and that doesn't even include Chris Christie or Marco Rubio. I'm not sure that's constitutional. Just pick Richard Nixon's head and end the suspense. It worked on Futurama.
A boatload of potential running mates for Romney range from U.S. Sen. Rob Portman of Ohio or Gov. Mitch Daniels of Indiana, to gambles like Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida and South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley
I really like Rob Portman for Romney's VP choice. Also like Chris Christie & Condoleeza Rice
In spite of Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul staying in the race, Mitt Romney is going to be the GOP nominee for President. The only question remaining is who will be his Vice-President. He is weak among women and Hispanics; should he pick a woman or a Hispanic person to try to win this group? Should he go with someone who could carry a big state like Marco Rubio from Florida, or Rob Portman from Ohio? Should he go with someone more charismatic like Chris Christie from New Jersey? Since the polls show the race between Obama and Romney will be a close one, the VP pick is of major importance. Let's hope he makes the right choice . we shall see.
Not a hope, tore strips off each other in the primaries. Marco Rubio, Chris Christie, Rob Portman or Paul Ryan for VP slot.
