The Anyone but Romney Candidates

Conservative blogger Erick Erickson over at is frustrated with the race for the GOP presidency. Here are a few clips about the candidates Erick feels can win next year from his recent post titled "Perry, Gingrich, Cain, and Huntsman. Oh My."
  • Rick Perry: He just has to improve his debating skills and figure out how to reconcile his immigration views with the base (not easily done). 
  • Herman Cain: I do not know that he can improve his image with women quickly enough.
  • Newt Gingrich: Throughout his long career, has a habit of shooting himself and others in the foot and I sometimes get the impression that Gingrich, like George W. Bush before him, thinks conservatism is what he says it is and not what it actually is.
  • Jon Huntsman: I still find it shocking that the guy running as the liberal in the race, or at least the media accepted moderate, came up withe boldest, most conservative economic plan. His deficit reduction plan alone makes all the others look weak.
Suggest that you read all of Erickson's piece here. He elaborates further on why he likes these candidates and why he thinks they can beat Obama next year and why he believes that Mitt Romney can not.

  1. The media can have its darlings, but Ron Paul is making more headway than people might think. Paul's been winning a lot of straw polls, even in the Blue State of Illinois.

    Personally I do not like Romney, Perry, or Gingrich and I have doubts about Cain. I know little about Huntsman and Bachman just doesn't ring true to me for some reason. it will be interesting to see how this all plays out in 2012.

    BTW, Gingrich is an excellent novelist for a politican. ;)
