As the 2016 Presidential field begins to heat up, there is one person I’d like to see in the (Republican) nominee field, Paul Ryan. As I watched the 2012 Presidential race very closely, I like how he thinks and runs. Many people have already asked him this question, and most of the answers were something along the lines of “I’ll see”. I know some are reporting that he’s finally said no, but I’ve yet to see/hear confirmation of that.I believe that if Paul enters the race he can win it, but if he doesn’t, I will still stand behind a different presidential candidate.March 3, 2015 10:44 pm at 10:44 pm #1062705akupermaParticipant
1. Paul’s neo-isolationism turns off many.
2. He has minimal experience in public life, was a competent but hardly amazing career as a physician, and a large part of his appeal is based on his family (too much like Jeb and Hillary).
3. He might accomplish much to influence the other candidates to adopt more libertarian approaches.March 3, 2015 11:02 pm at 11:02 pm #1062706pixelateMember
@cool dude is talking about Paul Ryan
@akuperma is talking about Rand Paul
Two very different people & policies.
As far as Paul Ryan, he did say that if Romney runs in 2016, he will not, and instead support Romney.
Shortly after Romney said he would like to run a 3rd time, Paul Ryan confirmed that he made a decision, independent of Romney’ interest, that he will not run. But then Romney pulled out.
Ryan is still sticking to not running, but who knows?March 3, 2015 11:21 pm at 11:21 pm #1062707The FrumguyParticipant
I think Ted Cruz is, by far, the best GOP candidate for Yidden and this country.March 4, 2015 1:00 am at 1:00 am #1062708pixelateMember
Ted Cruz is definitely an outstanding friend of Israel in policy, as are potential candidates Mike Huckabee, Marco Rubio, Rick Santorum, & George Pataki.
