Pundits for President

The GOP primary field could have a lot of “personalities” in it. Along with Sarah Palin, three other media personalities may be gearing up for a run at the White House.

When asked by Fred Thompson whether or not he is considering a run for the White House, Lou Dobbs responded, “yes is the answer.” If Dobbs is too xenophobic for CNN how will he fare with moderates, without whom no presidential election can be won?

Another name being tossed about for 2012 race is Glenn Beck. I know, I know. Ridiculous. But watch this video. Notice the red, white & blue streamer? The rolled-up sleeves? The call for a 100-year plan? It almost sounds like a campaign rally.

Mike Huckabee will likely be another media personality to join the race. According to a recent Gallop poll, 7 out of 10 Republicans (71%) say they would “seriously consider” Huckabee for president in 2012. That puts the preacher/politician/pundit ahead of both Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney, but he may be too liberal for the Republican base.

After President Reagan refused to renew the Fairness Doctrine in 1987, the GOP took over the radio. Now the radio is taking over the GOP.
