A Future GOP Leader

May 22, 2018

Loss of the Presidential election in 2008 to Barack Obama spelled the end of the GOP as an effective force in Presidential politics.  Even in 2016, GOP regulars could not secure the GOP nomination for one of their own.

Though President Trump hasn’t a clue about how to administer the office of President of the United States, he’s doing a good job distracting the general public from his eccentricities and side-line business interests.

All this will catch up with him eventually and, if not Impeached, the President will be challenged for the GOP nomination in 2019.

Despite every sign that the Congressional GOP is brain-dead, the announcement that 20 GOP congressmen have requested that a second Special Counsel be appointed to investigate the Department of Justice and the FBI, identifies some that may not be afflicted with a terminal disease.

Here are their names:

McCarthy of California and Scalise of Louisiana, Zeldin of New York,  Jim Jordan of Ohio, Francis Rooney of Florida, Ted Budd of North Carolina, Matt Gaetz of Florida, Mark Meadows of North Carolina, Louie Gohmert of Texas, Claudia Tenney of New York, Jody Hice of Georgia, Scott Perry of Pennsylvania, Andy Harris of Maryland, Dave Brat of Virginia, and Paul Gosar of Arizona.

The U.S. House of Representatives is a training ground for future U.S. Senators, which raises the question, “Which of these men will aspire to lead the GOP after his election to the U.S. Senate?”
