I know Phil is always considered the "most likely" winner of a forum GOP Primary...but let me make the case on why if he and I squared off...I don't think he would have the edge.

Phil has no wildlife experience. As far as I know, he doesn't fish or hunt. (maybe small varmets)
Phil has no law enforcement influence/firearm/military experience (no NRA endorsement for him)

...and I am going into the military.

Just another funny tidbit...Phil hasn't even seen "Forrest Gump" for god's sake! I think that I would have the upper hand because I'm not a "city boy". I've shot guns, caught fish, and I think I would be a strong contender if I were ever in that position...because I have middle America appeal.

So...Gov. Phil of PA vs. Sen. Naso of TX (lets say)

Why does your hair look so silly?

I can say that you are the first person to ever compare me to Bill Clinton.

Honestly...I kind of know Phil better than 90% of people on the forum...and I honestly don't think Phil would have any middle America appeal. He is defintely an elitest city guy, never shot guns, never hunted or fished, and yet so many say "PHIL WOULD WIN THE PRIMARY!"

But he has that arrogance essential for any GOP nominee. The French-hating helps, too.

Well, I wouldn't have noticed this if it wasn't already nominated in the Comedy Goldmine.

First of all, thank you so much, Naso, for using one of my worst photos on record from a year and a half ago with my longer hair. Roll Eyes

Secondly, I am certainly a "city guy" but by no means am I an elitist and just because I haven't hunted or fired a gun doesn't mean that I am out of touch. It also doesn't mean that I won't eventually do those things at some point in time. And, yes, I haven't seen Forrest Gump. I was movie deprived as a child and I still am. I don't think that would turn off many voters though.

By the way, Naso, you say I have no law enforcement or military experience. Ok, well neither do you. And don't say, "Oh, but I will!" because this scenario can't just be a Naso Fantasy.

Finally, you complain about assumptions yet do the same here. Where the hell did you get the idea that I've never fished? I live across the street from a creek and used to go down there to fish with one of my good friends all the time during the summer.

Plenty of people hate Ohio. Have you seen the website gobacktoohio.com? I hate seeing Ohioans coming down to Charleston every summer and ruin our heavenly way of life.

Maybe this race could split the conservative vote and allow for a moderate nominee like Rep. Moose (R-PA) Smiley

Mike,

My great question to you is why would you want the Republican Presidential Nomination in the first place? State and local politics is so much better than the national give away called the presidential race. However, being vice-president is still my long political dream. Smiley

As for the question, I would still say Keystone Phil would win the nomination. If Phil can excel as a conservative Republican in Philadelphia, I would not just support the man, I would give him money!

I have never been one to be easily sold to the pro-gun, pro-millitary crowd in the GOP. I for one view those who are not hunters but defend the second amendment as bigger defenders of gun rights as those who are regular hunters. After all, such people care so much about the right to own guns that, even though they never use one, they will strongly defend it as a constitutional, and not just a personal, right.

Serving in the military is a Greta thing. I myself am taking courses to become a military chaplain, but I hardly view it as a prerequisite to running for office. I hope to become a classroom American history teacher in at-risk schools, thowing myself into the "front lines" in American education. I view that as I view serving in the military: Putting one's personal comfort and safety behind the future of the nation.

So in short, I still view Phil as the man of this forum with the best chance at being President of the United States, however, I think he's too smart to actually seek that high office.

Naso, I don't insult middle America. As I've told you before, I have some serious filth not too far from where I am. I don't know what it is but I just think of Ohio as being not as beautiful as some other areas.  Tongue

This is a difficult question. I highly doubt either of you will ever even come close to such offices, but I suppose that is beside the point.

Naso is a goof ball, but Phil has some pretty severe problems with his temper tantrums. Just imagine the Dean Scream (except quite a bit worse, really) on a daily basis. I can't see someone like that winning, so I'll have to go with Naso in this scenario.

And this is my problem with simple forum based opinions. I don't have "Dean Scream" moments that are "quite a bit worse" on a "daily basis."

Oh, wait...did my wording seem like I was having a tantrum? I'm sorry. Here's my commentary without a tantrum:

Yes. The second time it was clearly typed more delicately. You have beautiful fingers, by the way. They must not have seen much work. Hmm. You really are an effete elitist aren't you? Now I'm voting for Naso. He types with his two index fingers and grunts every time he presses the return key, like a real man.
