Are There No Lady Warriors Who Are Worthy?

Not really passionate about politics but do love my country. My husband left his country and became a US citizen. Not sure if I could make a decision like that. That's why folks like Ed Snowden? I don't get him. (???) Sorry. Something wrong in this country? I'm American! I'm not leaving! We going to work together and fix what's broke! But I'm not moving to another country for asylum or nothing else! “This land is your land. This land is my land.”

Anyway … decided to have a go at being hot-blooded and opinionated about the political scene. Here's my hot button topic.

Are there no lady Republicans that are worthy???

  • First of all, everybody should be grateful that Herman Cain did not get thrown into the mix.

  • Second … kind of thought Bobby Jindal might give a shout out. If "We the people" can elect a man named “Barack Hussein Obama”, we can vote for somebody named Piyush "Bobby" Jindal!

  • Third … Jeb Bush for POTUS? Yeah whatever.

  • Fourth … please tell me there are no more "like" Sarah Palin to represent the Republicans? Sarah Palin don't even represent women! Sarah Palin only represents Sarah Palin!

JohnRoberts mentioned a possible “running mate” for Marco Rubio; a female African-American named Mia Love .

That's a very nice name. But NO!!! No no no. That will not do!!

*** Are y'all trying to tell me that the Republicans don't have a lady soldier in their camp who can butt heads with Democratic Presidential Hopeful Hillary Clinton??

The opinion continues ...

The one person that might have a chance at Hillary might be Ed Snowden. After all, a hero in the eyes of our youth today would garner votes, right? But I don't think he's yet old enough to run. If he were, and it were a choice between he and Hillary...I might ask for asylum. emoticon :winking: And I joined the military because I love this country. But even so, I am growing weary of watching the sh** that happens.

It sounds like you are just anti-Republican period and would be against Mother Theresa if she was Republican. What's your beef against Mia Love? You need to explain your objection. Because she's an African American bucking the norm by being Republican? Because she married a white guy and converted to Mormonism? Why the hatred for Sarah Palin? You say she only represents Sarah Palin. That's an accurate description of Hillary Clinton or just about any politician. How about South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley of Indian descent? I am sure you will have objections to her.

Noooooooooooooo! Don't say that!! Do you know what that means? It means Republicans are a bunch of cave men! Old rich white guys who can never change, be progressive. They're still in the Dark Ages when women shouldn't vote and blacks should be slaves and everybody who isn't white should be considered a foreigner ever if they were born in the USA. Noooooooooo! There's got to be a lady Republican who can hold up the torch!!! Say it isn't so!!!

Seriously. Say it isn't so! I get very upset if there isn't a level playing field. America is about fairness as much as freedom! Republicans have to break the stereo-type mold they built around themselves. I didn't make that up. They branded themselves with their own stereo-type. Ask any American who has eyes to see!

My "beef" which is not a beef at all - because in my mind, a Republican patriot who serves his or her country is just as good as any other patriot and whoever gets elected as POTUS is no longer representing any political party - they're just representing America ... my beef is the words "running mate". Anybody can be a running mate.

Are there qualified Republican females who can be nominated for President!!

P.S. Don't even know Mia Love. Never heard of her. But if she good enough to be a Vice-president why not just run for President!! I don't have objections to her, Nikki Haley or any qualified female candidate. But why take the back seat when you can drive the car yourself?

Dude! I don't hate anybody. But Sarah Palin as POTUS or VEEP is a joke. Not worth an argument. Said what I said. Done!

You know about these ladies. They're so good why can't they run for President!! Put them out there! Let the voters decide. Nobody's gonna vote for them if they're not even running for the office. That's how the system works!

Never been in the military. I count you worth of double honor. Thank you for your service. Don't ever grow weary in well doing for you shall reap in do season if you don't faint. (paraphrasing a scripture)

It's too early and I'm still yawning. I thought this topic up in the car while dropping my daughter off to school this morning. I don't care who gets in the Oval Office as long as he or she don't try to rule the world and start another World War!! Are my expectations so reasonable??

LOL. I live In Texas. Texas is Republican land. ( I think. (???) )

Politics is always a hot topic. You can never say anything people won't debate for hours and hours. I usually get tired of the conversation and zone out. I don't worry about missing out on any points being made, because I know I can chime back in and pick up right where I left off. :)

There has to be a running mate. There has to be a vice-president. The office can be used as a stepping stone to the presidency because of exposure, experience, gaining political and financial support.

Mia Love has barely served a year in congress so she needs "seasoning" and build a support system. Believe me, I hope all goes well for her and someday she'll run for president.

You say Sarah Palin is not worth an argument. I always get similar response when asking for specific reasons for the contempt shown her. You say done. Fine, but you don't define the dislike. Is it a fear that such reasons can be countered by logical arguments against your stance?

How about ladies from either side running for high office? I don't count Hillary Clinton for a very good reason: she rides the coattails and good will of the Clinton name. She was and is the brains behind the Clinton outfit but without the enormously popular and charismatic Bill standing behind her to soften her harshness, we would not be speaking of Hillary for President today.

There probably are; however, they probably don't want to endure the "traitor to her gender" accusations for being a woman and a Republican the way African-American Republicans are billed as "uncle Tom" types. The so-called "leaders" (excuse me, "women leaders," but THIS woman is independent and doesn't NEED your so-called "leadership") want all women to think their way or no way.

Your third and fourth points deserve so much more than the one measily like I can give this post!

well I am all for women politicians , some are actually more successful then men but not saying all are ,

cmoneyspinner wrote on April 16, 2015, 12:17 PM

OK. Fine. Mia needs “seasoning”. But what about that other lady? Nikki? Why can't she run for POTUS? Just want a lady Republican to step up to the plate!! That's all I'm asking!! – Are there any out there?? Israel, England, Germany and other countries have had lady Chiefs. Why can't America have a lady POTUS? It's time!! Hillary already stepped up. Just give US some more choices! There are a lot of women serving and qualified to do this "job". We can't just have Hillary. She can't be the only one! It ain't fair!! I am screaming! WHERE MA SISTERS AT?? COME ON OUT!!

cmoneyspinner wrote on April 16, 2015, 12:26 PM

Hillary Clinton is not the only woman in politics.
She is not the only woman with political aspirations.
We got lady governors. We got lady mayors. We got lady senators.
We got successful women in business.
We got women in all walks of life, doing all kinds of things.
Why can't we have a lady POTUS?!

Don't vote for her because she's a lady.
Vote for her because she can be our nation's leader.
If she can lead, she don't care about name-calling and silly criticisms about her integrity or her loyalty or her patriotism.

Thanks. :)

If a person has an ability and they can do something – male or female – they should have the freedom to use their talents for the good of all mankind.

I'm still staying … it's time for America to have a lady POTUS!
(NOT! Whoever becomes POTUS - man or woman - may God guide their steps.)

I think there is a biased old boys network still in place in politics. Hillary is an exception because of Bill and the Clinton name. The age old man wanting to keep women in their place still holds true to a certain degree. There's always extra criticism for female candidates. Male candidates never get raked over the coals on a bad hair day. Hillary is criticized for her wardrobe. Michelle Bachmann was shredded when she tried to run. Look, Hillary might have been the first female president in 2008 but was thrown under the bus because the appeal of the first African American president (a man) was greater. It's difficult for women to get that support base and raise money. I can't answer why Nikki Haley doesn't go for it. I know she is well regarded so it may be that lack of support and funds. New Mexico Gov Susanna Martinez is a Republican Hispanic woman also well regarded. So there are Republican women who are promising but I can't answer the why don't they run question. I would love for some ladies to throw their hats into the arena.

JohnRoberts - Biased old boys network? Really was hoping you weren't going to say that.

I know there's always been “extra criticism” for the ladies. But so what! It's time for us to say “So what! I have a vagina! Big deal!!”

The appeal of the first African American president (a man) was greater? He was also a better campaigner and answered questions a lot better than she did.

Nikki Haley. Susanna Martinez. And I'll bet there's a bunch more females that have already proven they got skills!

BTW, I'm sure my “opinion” of Sarah Palin – right or wrong – wouldn't stop her from her running for POTUS if she had made her mind up to do it. Excuse me! Don't nobody tell her what to do!! She'll fill out the paper work, pay the fee, make a public announcement, and hit the campaign trail! She'll be like – “Who is Mrs. Fox? Whatever! She don't even vote. Forget about her!!”
