So who does the bee community believe is the current Republican front runner for president?  The media seems to pick a new darling about every other week.  Who do you like?  

And why is your choice better than the other guys and gals?

Who has the best chance of competing with President Obama?

Herman Cain is my pick. Been listening to him for years and he's the only one that talks sense to me.

Maybe the next one that throws his hat in the ring. Haven't seen a decent one yet.

iddee...  I'm with you.  Hasn't been enough time to weed through all this...  as of today I would have to go with Herman Cain...  Go to his website and read his bullet points...  he is the only one so far, that not only says what needs to be done...  he says how he would do it...

At this point, Cain, Perry, and Romney all have a shot at it.  My biggest concern is that they don't destroy the eventual pick by using dirty politics to get there.  I just want Obummer out.  I would vote for any of those three.....so far.....way early.

Romney is just another RINO lawyer.  Gingrich is the smartest guy on the stage. Brilliant man but little chance of winning the whole enchilada as intelligence is not a factor in picking a leader for most Americans.

I'm for Herman Cain.  I have seen him speak on several occasions and shook his hand.  He is a guy I would like to work for.  He lacks experience in political savvy and is weak on foreign policy but can easily make up for that with the correct running mate for VP.  Herman Cain understands and has experience in how to run a business, be a leader, delegate to experts and solve problems.  That's what we need. Not another dirt bag lawyer.

Cain/Gingrich would be ideal.  That would bring us dollars instead of change and results instead of hope.

newt is smart, has some good ideas, but.....he's been on the wrong side of some stuff that made it seem that he stuck his finger in the wind, or was just uninformed.
 i can't get past all the infidelity.  everybody makes mistakes and i don't hold that against a person, but when they are repeatedly untrustworthy in their personal life, it makes all of their life suspect.

a good leader does not need to know everything.  a good leader needs to know what they don't know and make sure they hire the best people to fill in those knowledge gaps.  this is where i think Cain has a distinct advantage over others.  because he has run companies, he knows how to do this.  because he is not a political animal, he doesn't feel the need to make political  picks (i hope).  if he's not prez, i hope he gets a high cabinet position because i think he'd be an asset.

Cain would certainly take the "race card" off the table.

I like the way he talks.

This thread is reflecting what I'm hearing on the street. Barring any surprises we may have our first non politician president since Eisenhower.
The media keep touting Romney but to me he is the establishment candidate in an anti establishment year. Me thinks the tea party is being under estimated.

never have been a big Romney fan.  in so many ways he's not a conservative....as McCain was not.  the sleaze factor is lower with Romney than McCain.

if we have learned nothing, i hope we have learned not to let the media pick our candidate....and not to let Iowa and NH pick them either.

it IS about time we re-thought the primary process for the republicans.

I’m in agreement with that!  I’m tired of Iowa and NH too.  What would be fairer?  What would work better?

do it all the same day, each party picking a different day, i think.  and get rid of all that early voting, etc.  except in extreme circumstances, everyone should vote the same day for the national elections.

I always thought it was a darn shame when the candidates dropped out because of the results in the early voting. It does  limit the selection for the voters in states with later dates.
Often the early vote states are not at all representative of the rest of the country.
