It’s a yawn…GOP presidential wannabes
As I perused the GOP presidential wannabes, I yawned. Mike Huckabee, on the Fox television payroll already announced he is not running. Why? Some speculate, the $500,000 salary he earns from Fox and the new $3 million dollar beachfront home he recently purchased in Florida along with other gigs too enticing to make a run. His colleagues and presidential hopefuls Newt Gingrich and Rick Santorum contracts were cancelled as Fox became aware of their White House aspirations.
So there are fifteen, one down, fourteen, few women , no blacks or Latinos named in the group of presidential hopefuls in the recent ranking of the National Journal ,while former NYC mayor Rudy Giuliani and Donald Trump mentioned as in the bubble.
Interesting if another GOP black candidate surfaces to take on President Barack Obama especially after his handling of the Osama bin Laden fiasco, neutering the effectiveness of U.S. foreign policy in the Middle East that may prove to be an Achilles heel for his 2nd-term election
