Call for Leadership - 2016 Republican Party

11/1/2015  articles

Attention all armchair politicos, become active in the Grand Old Party, which is crying (begging?) for dynamic new leadership.

Congressman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) is the new Speaker of the House of Representatives. The budget deal cleared Congress early Friday morning, October 30. Majority leader, Mitch McConnell (R-KY) garnered the votes needed to pass the Senate.

The Outsiders vs. the Insiders

Senator Rand Paul (R-KY), GOP presidential contender, attempted to Filibuster the budget deal but did not gain support of 40 or more of his colleagues needed to succeed.

Don’t forget that billionaire builder and political leader Donald Trump is ready and willing to carry on “the good fight” to the victorious very end. He is leading in the national polls and most of the state polls.

But wait. Yes, that’s the famed neurosurgeon Ben Carson, a native Detroiter, who thinks he is the one who can stop Trump from stampeding his way to the White House. Carson is a close second to Trump, a virtual tie in some polls.

The time may be now for Republican Florida Senator Marco Rubio to shake his “Tea Party” roots as Ari Fleischer, former press secretary to President George Bush, has suggested. Rubio did very well in the CNBC debate this week raising over a million dollars and moving up with his poll numbers. A billionaire, courted by GOP hopefuls, chose to support Rubio after the debate. The “Tea Party” could be expanding Rubio’s base.

No matter who you are, you will always be flooded with “free” advice if you have the moxie to run for office. You may look like a winner and talk like a winner, and that’s why the establishment or establishment hopefuls will go after you. They need winners who play the part convincingly.

Regardless of what you might have heard or read Jeb Bush’s supporters are sticking with the former Florida governor in the GOP presidential contest, writes Seth McLaughlin in The Washington Times.

“At this point it is style over substance and usually as you get closer to January or February of next year it usually turns out to be equal substance and style, said Barry Wynn, Mr. Bush’s South Carolina co-chair and top campaign “bundler.” I think when it does make that turn it is definitely good for Jeb.”

Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) and Carly Fiorina are advancing in the polls. Fiorina is an outsider. Ted, a senator, challenges the establishment and is considered an outsider. He is strongly supported by the “Tea Party” voters.

Gov. Chris Christie (R-NJ) handled himself well in the debate.

“We shouldn’t be talking about Fantasy Football but energy…we should invest in all types of energy.

Gov. John Kasich (R-OH) is proud to be an insider and part of the establishment. This is his advice to voters: “Folks, we gotta wake up. We cannot elect somebody that doesn’t know how to do the job.” Some voters praise his qualifications, others don’t trust an insider.

Democrat Leaders

Many are calling this week Hillary Clinton’s best week she has had so far. Some are calling this a coronation for her.

Former Senators Jim Webb (D-VA) and Lincoln Chafee (D-R.I.) chose to drop out of the race. Former Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD) and Sen. Bernie Sanders (Il-VT) remain Democrat contenders. Sen. Jim Webb chose to run as an Independent.
