West/Bachmann is a better ticket
YESSSSS !! We needed him in 2008 ! And we need him more now than ever !! West is Best !! And I agree that West/ Bachmann would be the perfect winning ticket !!
Yes, I too would like to see him run for President but can I play devils advocate for a moment?
Rep. West is listed on the NRCC website (http://www.nrcc.org/2010-races/young-guns-program/) as a "Young Gun". Great, I agree that Rep. West is a "future leader of America"; what I have a concern about is who started "Young Guns":
Founded in the 2007-2008 election cycle by Congressmen Eric Cantor (R-VA), Kevin McCarthy (R-CA) and Paul Ryan (R-WI), the Young Guns Program began as a Member driven organization of House Republicans dedicated to identifying, recruiting, and mobilizing a new generation of conservative leaders. http://www.gopyoungguns.com/YoungGuns
Lately, I do not find the Republican "leadership" (which includes Cantor/Ryan/McCarthy) to be any better than the Dems; I don't find the Republican "leadership" to be "conservative". I can't help but wonder if Rep. West will be able to maintain his "ideals and principles" or will he be "influenced" by the leadership of the YG, who, lately, appear to me to be more like old time establishment GOP IMO!
What do you think--DC has corrupted so many over the years with all the power, parties, hype--can anyone resist?
