    Which of the following sounds the most scary ?

    President Romney

    President Gingrich

    President Santorum

      I would like to say all of the above, however, I will go with President Paul as being the scariest for me.

          Gingrich. Paul, at least, has about 35% good ideas. Gingrich is literally a bully 12 year old with a "the world might one day deserve me" attitude, in a grown man's body. I mean, he shut down the government because of a seating position on a private jet. If Putin eyeballs him wrong as President, he could send troops. Never trust a man who thinks the 17th century British Empire had the right mentality.

        yes,  but he will be nominated by the Democratic Party.  Just taking the temp of the Republican/Conservative/Libertarian voters out there.

      1. Perry--because he's a near cretin.
      2. Paul--because he lives in the 17th century.
      3. Santorum--because he's an ignorant, intolerant social conservative.
      4. Gingrich--because he has serious character problems and he's a super partisan when the country needs anything but more partisanship.
      5. Romney--because he's a Mr. one percenter who's out of touch with ordinary Americans.

      Every single one of them is terrifying except President Paul.

      President Obama still gives me the chills -- all he's been able to do is to shut up the anti-war left.

      The liberals today are just mad that the only anti-war group left is the Ron Paul R3VOLUTION.

    I don't trust Romney as far as I can spit. There is just something about him that makes my skin crawl. As I've been watching the debates, I've noticed he stammers alot when he's trying to think up a good lie to feed us. When he's got his pat answer to an expected question or when he's making a speech which his debates often turn into, he speaks very articulately and doesn't put in a lot of "hms" and "uhs" but when asked an uncomfortable question or when he's got to come up with or make up a good answer quick, he stumbles all over himself.

    I love the way Ron Paul thinks, I just don't think he'd make a good president.

    I lived in Texas for several years and the whole time I got the feeling the people there have a lot of pride in being Texans. At least the ones that I knew were that way. They always have to let everyone know they are from Texas. Even my daughters, both born there but who haven't actually lived there in ages still identify themselves at Texans. I'm afraid Perry will always be a Texan first and then the president.

    I don't know what to say about Santorum except there is something about him that reminds me too much of being in Catholic school.

    I'm not all that fond of Gingrich either, but he does come across in the debates as knowing what the heck he's talking about and he gives off some pretty strong and confident vibes. His past may be something he will need to overcome, but I don't really care how many wives he's had.

    I personally believe each and every candidate would try their very best to run the country if they were elected.  They have to put themselves out there on the line everyday in front of millions of people and give big bucks to do it.  Being President of the United States is not up there with being an ideal job.  This country and the world around us are in a big mess in all ways.  The Mayan Calendar has 12-21-12 as The End of the World as we know it. We need more than one sitting president to handle the magnitude of our immediate problems. Gingrich is not my favorite - he might be extremely intelligent and well-versed but he has an enormous ego - in my opinion - and he could really go off-kilter in that positio - a very good possibility - maybe.

    I half suspect President Obama will retire Jo and invite Hilary to be VP, positioning her well for a Presidential run in 2016.

    I wish he would do that, but she is adamant about never running again and sounds sincere. But you never know...

    President Gingrich sounds very scary- and so does the Republican party!

  10. Pcunix profile image90
    Pcunixposted 6 years ago

    Any of them.

    Romney is the least scary, but he's a flip-flopper who will say anything to get elected.  In office, he likely wouldn't do much different than Obama will, but having a GOP POTUS would give more power to the far right and that is definitely scary.

    I'll be pinching my nose and voting for Obama for that reason alone.

  11. kateperez profile image67
    kateperezposted 6 years ago

    President Romney is not a scary thought.  President Paul would not be frightening just because of his non-interventionist policy ideas.

    I think the most scary of these is President Perry, but then he's no longer in the race, so it would be President Santorum, who has indicated that he is ready to go out and shoot people..   

    President Gingrich is likely the best one in the current field, only because he seems to be more rational yet capable of doing what needs to be done, regardless of how much the media likes or dislikes him.

    kateperezposted 6 years ago

    this is the point:   Why did the Iranians let the hostages go in 1979?  Because we elected a scary president..

    Holding one's nose and voting for 4 more years of the same constrictive, non-constitutional policies is not the message that we should be sending to our children.

    I think the following is scary:
    Democratic President or Republican President!

    We need a third party or a decent third candidate to shake the boat!
