To showcase why they shouldn’t be the nominee or even in politics in the first place.
So, a bunch of the wannabes got together this week at the Conservative Political Action Conference (CPAC) to throw out their pitches in hopes to become the chosen foe of Hillary Clinton. From what I see, can we say landslide. Oh, for the Democrats, if my comment was confusing to anyone.
The same old faces (for the most part), saying the same old rhetoric. Spewing bad jokes, bad politics and mostly wasting any chance that they have to showcase that they’ve learned anything since they got defeated six years ago by President Obama. One by one by came up, and told their stories, or pitched their bull. Seemingly repeating every failed attempted attack at our President, his politics, his accomplishments and of course his nationality and upbringing. I guess some dogs can’t learn any new tricks. 
Here are just a few samples of the ‘intelligence’ showcased at the conference… 
During a Thursday address, Scott Walker touted his confrontation with right-to-work protesters in Wisconsin as proof he can take on threats from the Middle East. “If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world,”  Really Scott, you think a bunch of Americans, protesting their rights being taken away from them, holding signs, is a showcase of your toughness with a bunch of crazed zealots willing to chop peoples heads off. Fine, get on a plane and pound your chest, and lets see how they quake in fear… oh, you’ll be you crapping in your pants at the first sight of them.
Republican Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul earned a standing ovation on Friday, with what I guess will be his campaign mantra, if Hillary runs: “Hillary’s war made us less safe. … As Hillary was declaring victory in Libya, Ambassador Stevens was begging for more security. … I believe that Hillary Clinton’s abdication of responsibility, her refusal to provide an adequate defense for Benghazi, her dereliction of duty, should forever preclude her from higher office. It’s time for Hillary Clinton to permanently retire.” Really, Rand, Hillary’s war?!?! Really, you mean the one that was caused by a certain Bush attacking the wrong nation! Of course, I’m just wondering where he plagiarized the comment from.  
Donald Trump speaking yet again about Obama’s Birth Certificate: “Now, whether or not that was a real certificate, because a lot of people question it ... I certainly question it,” Trump said in regards to Obama releasing the long form of his birth certificate  “But he didn’t do it for Hillary Clinton, he didn’t do it for [Arizona Sen.] John McCain, but he did it for me. So in one sense, I’m proud of it. Now all we need to do is find out whether or not it was real.” No words necessary. 
Speaking directly after Trump, another would-be candidate, former Sen. Rick Santorum tried to make a funny, “The president’s popularity is so bad around the world today,” Santorum quipped, “that I heard this report from a source that the Kenyan government is actually developing proof that Barack Obama was born in America.” Wow, good one… not. 
Of course the joke being, with crazies like Phil Robertson (of the Duck Dynasty clan) as one of the speakers, anything showcased at this conference has to be taken with a grain of salt. During his speech, Phil had to express his views on the causes of STD’s in our great nation. No seriously, this actually occurred. “You lose your religion, according to John Adams, and there goes your morality. We’re almost there,” Robertson said. “You want a godly, biblical, medically safe option? One man, one woman, married for life,” he said. “And if you hate me because I told you that, I told you my love for you is not contingent on how you feel about me. I love you anyway. I don’t want to see you die early or get sick. I’m trying to help you, for crying out loud. America, if I didn’t care about you, why would I bring this up?” In other words, no gay marriage, no premarital sex, no condoms… how old fashioned and American of you…. 
I could go on and on… but you get the gist. Its just sad that in this day and age, a whole segment of the population follows these bozos. Listening with false hope that the good old days would miraculously return… cause that would it would take to for them, a miracle. That somehow, our President would simply disappear as if he never existed. Of course the joke being, that if that was the case, a certain female, still deciding on a Presidential run would now be in her sixth year as Commander in Chief. 
Just one man’s opinion
