GOP candidates are boring

“Half of all candidates lose elections. At least.” – Vodkapundit.

”The problem isn't with 'wealthy' candidates. The problem is with shifty ones.” – Blogger.

"$25,000 a month to be a historian isn't going to fly." -- Hugh Hewitt, National Review.

“Will they ‘commit to putting an American on Mars?’ No problem. Half the time, Ron Paul is already there.” Dick Polman, political columnist.

“As for the current GOP field, it's like confronting a terminal diagnosis. There may be an apparent range of treatments: conventional (Romney), experimental (Gingrich), homeopathic (Paul) or prayerful (Santorum). But none will avail you in the end. Just try to exit laughing.” Bret Stephenis, WSJ.

“There is only one explanation for this debate: NBC News wanted to show off the GOP contenders as the world’s Most Boring and Irrelevant White Guys. On Tuesday night’s NBC News prime time program, the second coming of Black Jesus.” – Blogger.

“It’s Boring White Guys versus Black Jesus.” Stephen Green, Drunkblogging, Pjmedia.

So is Obama. I like what Gary Johnson had to say:

“If the idea tonight was that the President would fulfill his constitutional duty to give us ‘information of the State of the Union’, we should be able to expect some truth. I didn’t hear much truth. Truth is that the real unemployment rate is probably still above 10%. Truth is that after all the hand-wringing and deals of the past couple of years, instead of cutting spending, the President and Congress are going back to the well for another $1.2 Trillion debt limit increase. And the truth is we are seeing nothing from either the President or the Republicans that will really change any of those unacceptable realities.

“Only in the twilight zone that is Washington could a President who has bailed out and stimulated our economy to death stand in the Capitol and declare there should be ‘no bailouts, no handouts, and no cop-outs’. Can anyone spell GM or TARP or Solyndra?

“The President said we deserve a government that plays by the same rules as millions of hard-working Americans. Perhaps that should begin with the government not borrowing and printing 43 cents of every dollar it spends – something hard-working Americans can’t and don’t do.

“Until we see a real plan – not a Washington smoke and mirrors plan – that puts a stop to deficit spending and really puts America back to work, all of this rhetoric is just wasted breath.”

George, thanks for the guffaws. Great way to start my day after a near all-nighter fighting for truth, justice, and an open City of Austin government. I may have to settle for two our three.
