Apparently I am too undereducated to understand the United States political process.  As I have said before, I really do not wish to vote for either Democratic possibility however it appears to be coming clearer to me that the Republican GOP has but three possible candidates that might win the nomination at this point in the process and my guy isn't one of them.

Trump scares me.  He continues to badmouth individuals and party members that he is going to need to successfully run the country if he actually wins the nomination.  His off handed remarks during moments of pressure lead one to believe he is in duck and cover mode.  Last night, during the CNN Town Meeting he was repeatedly asked questions that had him repeating soundbites several times while in the process of answering the question.  Sometimes the same soundbite was repeated three or more times.

Cruz scares me too.  He is using every method he can to win.  (Anyone reminded of House of Cards) Sometimes they aren't exactly ethical.  I think we need someone with integrity and ethics in the White House.  I am sure every President in our history has had to go against their ethics in the performance of the job but we need someone who can get things done and like Trump, Cruz appears to be upsetting the very people he needs to perform in the office.

I don't feel like Rubio is the guy either.  While he doesn't scare me as much as the other two, he has had his moments of failure.  He is being drowned out by the Trump and Cruz campaigns and a third place finish this Saturday will not help him.

So now what do I do?

  1. I am favoring Rubio. I like Carson a lot, but I don't think he will get the nomination. Rubio may not, either?
