GOP mulls 32 candidates for president in 2016–so far |

If you thought the 13-candidate clogged 2012 Republican presidential primaries were too crowded and confusing, then you might want to skip the 2016 process — because the Republican Party is suggesting that 32 might be interested in running.

All bullshit, of course.  Cruz is viable.  Rand Paul might be.  Rubio is cooked.  Christie might be cooked, but will probably end up running anyway.  Huckabee is just blusterinig.  Jeb Bush is still too toxic.  Scott Walker is a possibility, but Christie will probably elbow him out of the way.  Sarah Palin well never again run for national office.  And all the rest on the list are also-rans.

About Bill Quick

I am a small-l libertarian. My primary concern is to increase individual liberty as much as possible in the face of statist efforts to restrict it from both the right and the left. If I had to sum up my beliefs as concisely as possible, I would say, "Stay out of my wallet and my bedroom," "your liberty stops at my nose," and "don't tread on me." I will believe that things are taking a turn for the better in America when married gays are able to, and do, maintain large arsenals of automatic weapons, and tax collectors are, and do, not.
