The game in 2016 is rigged. So why play? I'd rather go down with my principles intact and my head held high this time.
_____________________

The game is rigged, but if, and that is extremely unlikely the Republicans run a candidate who is relentlessly an attack dog.

The Republicans need someone unrepentant. Now I do not like Christie at all, though I do defend him as not worthless and a valuable Republican -- he would do that.

Being a President and being a Governor are very different jobs and how you deal with other is very different. Now, I have ZERO idea where Christie actually stands on anything. SO far, I don't much care for him, but again he is getting done what he can get done in NJ, and it is working for the state and the voters like it.

I hope he is not the candidate, but he is not milquetoast like either Dole or McCain(my apologies to Dole for this comparison, as I like him politically, but no fire at all and a old club style Senator)

The Republicans can win, if they are actually relentless and willing to take the fire of going negative totally and inexcusably. Carry forward a positive message that you repeat until it is a comedy routine, and at every opportunity slam the living heck out of Dems, repeat the truth loud and apologetically, and when you are called on it, make damn sure you start with how they lied about things in Romney's campaign and called Romney a liar for mentioning proven Obama lies and say how they are doing it again, and again, say it often enough until it is a comedy routine.

To win the next election, Republicans need more balls than brains. The Dems flat out suck, stick to that and why as well as why you are better -- never ever deviate, when asked to deviate rinse and repeat.

Republicans have this asinine assumption the public wants nice guys. Obama is not a nice guy he is a complete an utter brick -- Hillary is easy to beat, heck Obama did it, the man who couldn't win a thing until Bill Clinton saved his bacon beat Hillary even though that same guy was on Hillary's side!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
