Frankly, the people most talked about for the 2016 Presidential nomination are proof that the GOP is still digging that hole- Creationists and war enthusiasts all.
I think John Boehner is basically a good man caught up in a very vile world - present day Washington politics. I do not agree with Peter as I feel the Tea Party is one of the most important movements as it shows that apathy and indifference are not to be tolerated in retaining the rights of our Founding Fathers. The individuals who wish to run for president in 2016-Rand Paul, Ted Cruz and Dr.Ben Carson are all intelligent people who are pro-life, pro-traditional marriage and pro-freedom-they are non war mongers. The Tea Party has also helped put many individuals in the Senate, House of Reps and state governors who are not politicians and are doing an excellent job.
To Peter's idea of the beer party to hash out the differences in the GOP - excellent idea and I would like Ted Nugent and his band playing-hey maybe Uncle Ted should run for president.
