Can Scott Walker unite the GOP?

Scott Walker, the Republican governor of Wisconsin, has generated much buzz as a potential presidential candidate since he addressed the Freedom Summit in Des Moines, Iowa on January 24. Walker has jumped to the front of a crowded Republican field and may be uniquely qualified to unite the various factions of the Republican Party.

 

There are a number of factions within the GOP, the two most obvious being the establishment and the Tea Party. In addition to these groups, there are also religious conservatives, foreign policy conservatives, and libertarians. Most of the potential Republican nominees are championed by only one or two of these groups. For example, Chris Christie and Jeb Bush fall into the establishment category. Ted Cruz, Ben Carson and Sarah Palin are prominent candidates from the Tea Party. Mike Huckabee and Rick Santorum have the support of the religious wing of the GOP. Rand Paul is the obvious libertarian choice and no strong foreign policy candidates have yet emerged. Scott Walker is one of few candidates with the potential to bridge the divides between these groups.

The two men who formed the 2012 Republican presidential ticket both made decisions this week about whether to launch presidential campaigns in 2016. On Monday, Paul Ryan, the candidate for vice president in 2012, made an announcement about his intentions for 2016. At about the same time, word began to leak out about Mitt Romney’s intentions. The men seem to have reached different conclusions about what paths they would take in 2016.

 

On Monday, in an interview with NBC News, Rep. Ryan (R-Wis.) said that he feels that he can make a “bigger difference” in his role as Chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee than as one of many Republican candidates in what will likely be a crowded field.

This obscure law may wreck Rand Paul in 2016

An accident of the calendar may prevent Rand from running in 2016

 

Election Day 2014 brought a lot of good news for Republicans, but for one Republican, it wasn’t quite good enough. Rand Paul, the junior senator from Kentucky, had to be disappointed that the Republican sweep didn’t extend to Kentucky’s House of Representatives. For Paul, this means more than partisan disappointment; it may well destroy any chance he has of becoming president.

 

Rand Paul, the son of libertarian and sometimes Republican, Ron Paul, was elected to the U.S. Senate in the Tea Party victories of 2010. Like his father, a perennial presidential candidate in his own right, the younger Paul seems to have had his eyes set on the White House from his first days in the Senate. He was a founder of the Senate Tea Party caucus and, perhaps following his father’s lead, has emerged as a vocal critic of U.S. foreign policy. He emerged as a political star in March 2013 with a 12 hour filibuster of President Obama’s nomination of John Brennan as CIA director. The filibuster, inspired by Paul’s opposition to President Obama’s use of drones, lasted 12 hours and 52 minutes on a slow news day and catapulted Sen. Paul into the limelight.

November 4th: a Referendum on Amnesty…November 20th: a Constitutional Crisis in the Making

ospeech1 cover “Everybody agrees that our immigration system is broken. Unfortunately, Washington has allowed the problem to fester for too long.”
– Barack HUSSEIN Obama on the announcement that he would unilaterally initiate immigration reform

NO Obama…NOT everyone agrees with you…in fact two out of three Americans do NOT agree with you and told you so on November 4th but hey, why should ‘We the People’s’ wants mean anything to you…after all, they NEVER have before.

And so now with ‘his pen and his phone’ lame duck President Barack HUSSEIN Obama…who looked a bit odd and quite glassy-eyed before the cameras…will go as far as he can under the radar of the law to “fix” an immigration system that in reality is NOT actually broken…it’s just that the laws currently on the books are deliberately and with malice NOT being enforced by Obama and his administration.
