A Reader Posts Where He Is Right Now on Republican Primary
Honest Debate writes: "I thought John Kasich was a champ in the 90's. I still respect his body of work from that era. Now he's just another establishment punk. Chris Christie used to send a thrill up my leg but his immigration stance bugs me and I can't forgive him for allowing Obama to play him like a fiddle after Sandy. I've tried. Lindsey Graham is right about some things but I don't trust him at all on the few things he is good on. John Roberts has made some good decisions but he's a traitor. If it were up to me I'd impeach him. And now, Et tu Paul Ryan? Send him to Eric Cantor land. The list of feckless Republicans is long.
Trump is not my candidate but I can completely understand his rise. And don't think I wouldn't vote for him in a heartbeat if it comes to that. He's political candy, it may not sustain you but it sure is sweet.
I still have not decided but I am excited about this cycle because we will have a say from NC because we vote on super Tuesday. I can't remember the last time the NC Republican primary was relevant. In 2008 I voted for Hillary because McCain was already the nominee and I knew Obama was the radical, Alinsky-stewed disaster he has proven to be... that and Operation Chaos.
If the election were tomorrow, I'd go with Cruz. Rubio has promise but has slid in my mind after the last debate. I like Carson and am not one who puts experience above integrity but I'm still a little uneasy with him given the Middle East turmoil. My second choice behind Cruz (at this point) is Fiorina. I just can't rule her out. Her reasoning about why she wouldn't talk to Putin right away was outstanding. I like her foreign policy, she is the only one I've heard who has articulated what she would do. I think she gets it."
