Someone who says what he believes and sticks to it and who dares anyone to challenge him. Imagine that Bush going up against Clinton. Now that's a match-up that would make the Democrat gods shudder.
Perhaps the failure of the experience argument over the last two elections is why Republicans seem so eager to pick a candidate who has never held a political job for even a day.
If the Republican party really care about children, it should stop trying to defund Planned Parenthood. The party should support anti-gun legislation so that children can go to school and movie theaters and be at home without being executed, instead of letting nine U.S. youths be gunned down per day.
The far right is pitting God against women. Mike Huckabee's support for the decision to deny a 10-year-old rape victim an abortion is just another example in a long history that continues this election season.
The entire political punditry world has been holding its collective breath since last Thursday night, waiting for some polling numbers to interpret. But one question in particular seems to show some very bad news for the Republican Party.
Many Republican politicians call themselves "values candidates." What does that really mean? Is there another way to talk about "values" that expands the definition and lends more predictability to the success of the 2016 presidential election?

The GOP Debate. It came, we watched, it blew our minds! Donald Trump is like teflon...nothing sticks to that guy. Marco Rubio was a surprise standout. Jeb Bush looked pretty old. Scott Walker was boring.
11. "When you find mush, you push" is a belief shared by both Scott Walker and Vladimir Putin, but it's not nearly as grossly sexual as you're thinkin...
Racism, child labor, poverty, gender inequality and homophobia are not phenomena of the 21st century. They are our history. Over the past 5 or 6 decades the doors to these parts of our reality were kicked open and folks like those in Monday's focus group and forum audience don't want to look.
It seems to me there are four basic strategies the other nine Republicans on the stage have to choose from: ignore Trump, outdo Trump, attack Trump or agree with Trump.
When political wonks are prostrating themselves before Sheldon Adelson for a shot at his billions, you can't really expect us to care what politicians may or may not say in a public debate. Instead, let's set candidates in a series of one-on-one debates and run it NCAA March Madness style.
