The Grouch Assesses Republican Primary Candidates - September Edition

Just in case any of you wondered where I stand, I thought I might give you my opinion of the current list of Republican presidential candidates. I'll update this each and every month until a single Republican is selected. If you think I'm all wet, leave me a comment and try to convince me otherwise:

For my August report, CLICK HERE.

Well I watched the Republican debate on the Communist News Network (CNN) last night. First of all I'll have to say that I thought Wolf Blitzer did a pretty good job and the debate was pithy and spirited.

In the last 2 debates I have got to say that Herman Cain was the winner, hands down. It seems that no matter what the question he always has a specific answer and a plan, not just a polished political mini-speech. This man really needs to be president, but I am afraid he is just not going to catch on.....too bad.

As expected Rick Perry was picked on for calling social security a Ponzi scheme, but hell, that is exactly what it is. They also picked on Perry for "vaccinegate" and he actually apologized for this. What really bothered me about Perry was his support for in-state tuition for illegal aliens. I did not find a good excuse for his actions here but for now, I'm nervously leaving Perry in category 1.

It is with regret that I demote Ron Paul to category 3. He blamed America for the 9-11 attack. It was OUR FAULT cause we were in their Muslim lands and it was our fault because we don't adequately support the Palestinians. He doesn't seem to grasp the concept that Muslims hate us and want to kill us simply because of who we are and what we believe. This man would be dangerous for America as much as or more so than Hussein Obama. This is a crying shame because I agree with him on everything else.

I suppose Michele Bachmann held her own but she seems to be slipping in the polls. Right now she has my solid category 1 vote if she manages to fight her way to the top.



CATEGORY 1
I WILL HAPPILY VOTE FOR:

Herman Cain
Michele Bachmann
Rick Perry

CATEGORY 2
I WOULD HOLD MY NOSE AND VOTE FOR:

Rick Santorum

CATEGORY 3
IF THEY ARE IN THE GENERAL ELECTION, I'LL VOTE 3rd PARTY, YOU'RE WELCOME, PRESIDENT OBAMA:

Mitt Romney (true RINO)
Newt Gingrich (a LIAR and a RINO)
Jon Huntsman (probably should be a Dimocrat)
Gary Johnson (where was he?)
Ron Paul (too crazy for America)


There are several other minor candidates who I have omitted. If any should float to the top, I will render a judgement upon them.

Just for fun I'm watching Sarah Palin, Allen West, Chris Christie, and John Bolton as possibles. If any of these later declare, I will certainly give you a grouchified opinion.

As with the August report, the CAT 3 candidates all said a bunch of good sounding things. In fact if you did not know any better, you might think Romney or Gingrich or Huntsman might make great candidates. The problem is that a RINO is a RINO and a LIAR is a LIAR. These people have their fingers in the wind and will say pretty much anything that will get them a vote.

There you go. The GROUCH has spoken. If you don't like my selections, let's hear about it!
