Presidential Campaign Rumors

We are back from the Fiesta Bowl where our Oklahoma Sooners beat Connecticut on January 1st.  Middle America wins again!  Now it looks like rumors are flying about who is considering running for President in 2012 -- we love Rick Santorum and could easily get behind him.

Today from the Washington Examiner comes this gem:

Seen and heard: You don't suppose he's running for president, do you?

A reliable source tells Beltway Confidential that former Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa., is at the Capitol Hill Club tonight, at an event honoring the three new Republican members of New Hampshire's congressional delegation -- Rep. Charlie Bass, Rep. Frank Guinta, and Sen. Kelly Ayotte.
We have this gem from Hot Air:

Are You Ready for a President Bachmann  by Allahpundit, 5 Jan 2011
ABC News has learned that Bachmann, R-Minn., also is seriously weighing whether to seek the Republican nomination for president in 2012.

A source close to the three-term congresswoman said Bachmann will travel to Iowa this month for multiple meetings to seek advice from political forces there and party elders close to the caucus process before coming to a final decision regarding a potential presidential run. Bachmann, a native of Waterloo, Iowa, also is set to deliver a keynote speech at an Iowans for Tax Relief PAC fundraiser Jan. 21 in Des Moines, Iowa…

“Nothing is off the table,” Bachmann chief of staff Andy Parrish told ABC News when asked whether the Iowa trip signaled Bachmann’s intent to run for president. “The congresswoman is excited about her first trip to Iowa this year.”
Anyway. I don’t think she’s serious about this, just looking to capitalize on the media’s primary fee-vah to earn some buzz for a possible Senate run in 2012 when Klobuchar’s seat is up.
We agree with Hot Air that she probably would not get the nomination but we also agree that she would be a prolific fundraiser.

Why not a Santorum/Bachmann ticket. Bachmann is fantastic when interviewed and doesn't do gaffes?  You know where she stands.  All for someone articulate -- no more candidates that have trouble answering questions from the pundits.  Articulate is the name of the game!

We will be following the rumors of new people running.  All of you who read this already know all about Romney, Huckabee, and Palin.  Frankly we support new people running this time and get away from ANYONE who ran in 2008.  Time to go for the Gold and nominate someone new and refreshing to be our nominee to get everyone fired up for the 2012 election.
