    Only two could have any serious hope of challenging Obama:

    - Mitt Romney

    - Ron Paul

    Why do you consider Ron Paul a serious candidate? What has he done for the people of Texas he represents?

    Well Mitt is out, and the fact that a Mormon was in the running, does say something about Americas advancement.

    Albeit what is really funny, is who the Dems put in the White House, but what he has done to America is not so funny.

    Nah, think Gary Johnson: http://reason.com/blog/2011/04/25/gary-johnson-presidential-anno

    From Brian Ross @ the Huffington Post: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/brian-ross/gary-johnson-2012_b_852558.html

    Former Republican Governor of New Mexico Gary Johnson announced his intention to run on the Republican ticket for President in 2012 to a crowd estimated at 18 people. Here's why Barack Obama should be good and scared of this dark-horse candidate.

    I was in the sports news business working out of Santa Fe, New Mexico, when Gary Johnson was the governor of the state. A rancher from the Northern part of the state, he went after the old-boy political machine run by the Spanish who have run things in New Mexico since the conquistador Don Juan de Oñate marched into the area that became Santa Fe in 1598.

    As governor, Johnson was a strong fiscal conservative, and a social moderate. He had broad appeal, even amongst centrist Democrats, many of whom crossed party lines and voted for him. He was laid back. He shunned the Governor's mansion and the entourage which were a hallmark of Bill Richardson's tenure as governor of New Mexico. In fact, on a Sunday, more often than not you could find the Gov sitting at a table at Bagelmania in Downtown Santa Fe, reading the paper and having breakfast with his wife. He took the time to say hello, and even asked about your kids.

    That belies the toughness with which he ran the ship of state in New Mexico. The legislature there only meets for a few weeks each year. Johnson routinely used his veto powers to threaten the legislature into coming to terms with tough issues when the partisanship fractured the Round House.

    National political analysts still mislabel Johnson as your Dr. Paul fringe candidate. True, Johnson has been an advocate over the last year for the legalization of Marijuana, a controversial stance which even President Obama has shied away from, which definitely alienates him from many in the fundamentalist religious base of the national GOP. It does, however, open the door for him with many liberals who are dissatisfied with Mr. Obama, and many independent voters, and he approaches the issue from a tax-dollars bottom line, which might even find a few libertarian and fiscal conservative adherents.

    He'll never make it past the religious fundamentalists and Tea Baggers in Iowa and New Hampshire.
