It’s Mitt Romney v. Rick Perry and maybe Paul Ryan
This year it's easier to figure out who I can't support for president than who I want to become president.
As a Small Government Republican on social and economic issues, I can't vote for Barack Obama,
Sarah Palin, Michele Bachmann, Rick Santorum, Herman Cain, Ron Paul or Jon Huntsman.
Mitt Romney's smart, relatively honest, panders to polls, lacks experience in politics and may not have the needed presidential political talent to win the WH or govern if he does.
Rick Perry plays corrupt Texas politics aggressively, wants state legislators to elect U.S. Senators, believes Christians should rule America and the world and is a Big Intrusive Government Republican on social and economic issues.
Paul Ryan is smart, wonky, inexperienced beyond Congressional politics, clean and yet to show that he is a good retail politician. I think he'd be crazy to run.
Chris Christie says he's not ready to run for president, and I agree.
Warren Buffett wants to tax the rich so that his tax loopholes won't be closed.
