    Seek help for your TDS. I think the more relevant subject would be Hunter”s cocaine in the White House, the Biden treason, the Border crisis, the economy, inflation…. and this is what you come up with? No one thinks of Trump as a savior except liberal idiots who don’t have a platform of their own and want to deflect their shortcomings.

  2. I keep hearing that Trump is the only one who can (fill in the blank). I just cringe when I hear that. It has a cult-like sound to it. We’re electing a leader not a savior. No candidate is “the only one”.

  3. Let’s just say the candidates have enough charisma and leadership ability to give Republicans – at least – the next 12 years in the White House. It is in the bank. I predict the candidates will present themselves well and it will yield the most well-behaved candidates in history.

    Mr Ed
    Christie has jumped the shark and he will not have any Marco moment. There will be so many candidates who will shine Christie will run for cover like the rat he is.

    The only one saying anything good about Christie recently was Geraldo and Fox News booted him out the next day.

  4. I’ve been calling for a Trump/Scott ticket. I don’t believe that any other candidate (Trump) on the right can have a significant impact on exposing the deep state and taking action(s) against it. Scott would be the level head and not nearly as embedded in the problems that plague Washington as most of the candidates are.

  5. Christie will trash Trump out of vengeance, and try to cause a “Marco Moment” with Governor DeSantis. You remember the Marco Moment during the 2016 debates don’t you? Governor DeSantis must be on his guard at all times. Christie will try to walk him into a Marco Loop moment.

    I voted for President Trump twice, but he just can’t let go of things he cannot control, and get beyond the nasty attitude and name calling. It may have worked in ’16, but not now. He needs a heavy dose and understanding of the Serenity Prayer.

    IMHO… DeSantis/Scott is an unbeatable ticket

  6. Pence, Christie, and Hailey have no self-awareness. Which one of these three will be the first to drop out? They would have a better chance running against Biden. Backstabbers, quitters, and traitors.

  7. I believe that the 2024 GOP primary event could prove messy and divisive for the party will be caused by Christie. He jumped in for one reason and ONLY one reason, to Bash Trump.
