Currently, there are 17 Republicans vying for the nomination for President. Does this show a multitude of ideas and passion in the GOP, or that the party itself has no leadership and direction?

They're all saying the same thing. How is that a multitude of ideas? It just leads to a disorganized party.

Neither
It shows that there are 17 people who want to be the POTUS.

This is the reason our next president will be the horrible Hillary Clinton. The republicans are running around with no direction.

I believe it's about how it's opportunistic to run as the opposite party after the current president has failed

I agree. Many are trying to be the republican candidate because they know that the person who wins the nomination will be the next president of the United States of America.

There hasn't been a quality republican since Eisenhower, none of these guys should be considered serious candidates, and half of them should probably be considered for some kind of psychological evaluation

Lots of ideas? If any of them had any new ideas, I'd shit myself. It's the same failed trickle down BS policies that caused the recession. nothing new. Same old shitty GOP.

So please which policies in Obamas administration have caused our economy to be cited as the worst recovery in 77 years? Why haven't the poorest improved economically at all? Why do black Americans still have 13%+ unemployment rate? Trickle up is BS!

Wall Street reform to restore the protections from glass-Stegal dating back to the stock market crash of 1929. 8k tax rebate to new homeowners. Federally backed loans to allow people under water to stay in their homes.

GDP Has grown every year. Unemployment has stopped. If this is failure in your eyes, what exactly would you call 8 years under Bush? You're hilarious btw. The recovery is too slow for your liking? Nevermind the fact you admit it's a recovery

And by that token you admit that Bush was at the helm of a recession. These policies being pushed by the GOP caused the recession. They better get back to the drawing board

* that one sentence is supposed to read unemployment dropped. Autocorrect changed it to "stopped"

Obamas real employment rates a lie even Sanders said the real number over 10%. Getting to the truth is good, hopping on a bandwagon is bad.

Really love the left. On your side a female who turns out to be a criminal at worst or a person who thinks she's above the law. Then there's the self described socialist that seems to be picking up steam. That says all we need to know.

Email-Ghazi or whatever the fuck Fox News is pandering to the sheep these days is nothing, but smoke. No fire. It doesn't matter. You'll be calling her President Clinton regardless. The GOP has a real problem winning

Sailing around; here's an idea...we are 15 months from an election nothing will look the same by November 2016. Every week Hillarie's unfavorable grow, she's underwater right now as 52% don't think she's honest. Liars don't get elected president.

Duet...you know they have lost the argument when they bring up Fox and use their talking points. How could anybody vote for Hillary. She is beyond corrupt, beyond bought, and has zero accomplishments. BS wants all to be free, more debt, tax, spend...

His policies have helped the 1% and the GDP gets modified lower every time there are 50 + on food stamps and on and on.

Perhaps the dumbest post I have read. McCarthy, John Birch? Really? You are the one that needs new ideas.

Sir stop being boorish, callous, and hyperbolic. Also, ad hominem arguments are not arguments but simply insults. Lol.
