It will take a Republican President and an ACTIVE Republican Congress to reverse the damage that the Extreme Liberals have done the last 7 years to our Country. It means that in the next 7 months, voters MUST take the time to study and pay attention to each individual candidate and make an informed vote in the March Primaries. I have already accomplished detailed research on all of the candidates and have been watching them for the last 3 or 4 years. This is how I determine who I will vote for in the Primary and HOPE that my choice wins the nomination.

I recommend that everyone watch all of the Debates this cycle as they will be critical in this election cycle. BECOME AN INFORMED VOTER AND VOTE! If you were not one of the 24 million who watched the debates on FOX, here is a quick review of the 2016 GOP (Republican) Presidential Candidates.

Donald Trump (Businessman) NY
Jeb Bush (Governor) Florida
Chris Christi (Governor) New Jersey
Ben Carson (Doctor)
Ted Cruz (Lawyer/Senator)
Carly Fiorina (Business Woman) California - now Virginia
Jim Gilmore (Governor) Virginia *
John Kasich (Governor) Ohio
Lindsey Graham (Senator) South Carolina *
Bobby Jindal (Governor) Louisiana *
Mike Huckabee (Governor) Arkansas
George Pataki (Governor) New York *
Rand Paul (Dentist/Senator) Kentucky *
Rick Perry (Governor) Texas *
Marco Rubio (State Legislator/Senator) Florida
Rick Santorum (Ex-Congress/Senate) Pennsylvania *
Scott Walker (Governor) Wisconsin

Notice that there are 9 Governors, 2 Individuals with Business Backgrounds, 1 Doctor, and 5 Senators.

*By September, there is a 99% chance that the following Candidates will no longer be in the race: Gilmore, Graham, Jindal, Pataki, Santorum, Paul, and Perry.

NOTE: Gilmore was a great Virginia Governor. Lindsey Graham is a great Statesman and Senator, Jindal is a great Governor and highly intelligent, Pataki was good for New York during 911, Santorum is past his time, and Paul is too Libertarian and Perry was a great Governor, but not a good Debater and this has hurt him. I realized this during the debate before his last election as Governor. Each and every one of these individuals have been exceptional Governors and Senator, but they are NOT Presidential material. So now you ask, who is left and what will they bring to the Office of the Presidency? Let's take a close look at each candidate "left standing" after the 6 August Debate. They are all great Americans.

I predict the following Candidates will participate in the September Debates but have listed their weaknesses as a potential GOP nominee in my process of elimination and going forward in the race.

1. Donald Trump will not be the Nominee, but he is great voice for frustrated Americans. He speaks for those of us who have been forced to be silenced in fear of being called a Racist, Woman Hater, and whatever other label the Extreme Liberals will slap on us. He will be in the race for a while, which is a good thing,

2. Jeb Bush is too weak, loves Common Core, and not trusting of his Immigration position. He is a good man, but not strong enough to beat the Liberals.

3. Chris Christi will not make the 3rd debate. Too much baggage.

4. Ben Carson will continue to be in the top tier. Wonderful Candidate and highly competitive in this race.

5. Ted Cruz is just another "Lawyer" with great speaking abilities - no trust here.

6. Carly Fiorina is the best woman candidate that I have seen in my lifetime.

7. John Kasich is one of the MOST qualified of all the Candidates! Budget Experience, Business experience, and a 2 term Governor of Ohio - the most critical state in the Primaries. They love him there! He cares for all, but realizes that the Government's house must be in order before the "freebie" programs can kick in. He understands how to motivate the Congress to cut waste, etc. He has made the LGBT issue a mute point for the Republicans. Great Presidential material! The less the Republicans focus on Social issues the better chances of winning.

8. Mike Huckabee was not a good Governor in Arkansas - he messed up the School System. I have a close friend who lives in Arkansas. Do not be fooled! A preacher going into Politics?

9. Marco Rubio will be a great Vice President and bring in the Hispanic vote and groomed for a Presidential run in either 2020 or 2024 and win. Just needs more experience. As VP he would be ready for the Presidency.

10. Scott Walker is not as strong as they have built him up to be. Not impressed.

Unless there is a dramatic change in the Candidates performance in the September Debates (and that is possible) here are my predictions for the remaining debates beginning in October:

John Kasich
Jeb Bush
Ben Carson
Carly Fiorina
Marco Rubio

It is my opinion that John Kasich will be the Republican Nominee for 2016 and that he will select Marco Rubio as his VP. If not Senator Rubio, then Carly Fiorina. I absolutely love Ben Carson. He would be an excellent choice for Health and Human Services (HHS) in a Republican Administration. Governor would do well as Commerce Secretary.

The Republican Party Platform should include all 17 candidates positions on Foreign Policy, Immigration, Social Issues, and the Economy. Please leave out the social issues as we will be wasting precious positions that need to be stated. Even though some of the Candidates may not be Presidential material, they offer sound ideas to "fix the mess" that King Obama is going to leave us with.

I guess you loved his comment to Brande Roderick who was a contestant on Celebrity Apprentice “It must be a pretty picture. You dropping to your knees. Because isn’t that woman’s place in the boardroom – on her knees?"

Mitt Romney stayed away from social issues, and so did John McCain, and I don't think doing that helped them.

Bob, why are you so convinced that Trump will not make it? Thus far, he's held his own pretty well.
