Claude for President 2012!

I must warn you though ..... I think he is a Democrat.

Noob .... I didn't realise it adds the letters! D'oh.

#3 Posted by DonutFever (3514 posts) -

Obama and Paul are probably the best. Santorum is the worst of them though, and that is saying something.

#4 Posted by thevigilanteoflove (486 posts) -

Ron Paul!

#5 Edited by TheWholeDamnShow (232 posts) -

Obama? Really?

P.S The OP is a douche.

Claude, although I'm Australian and thus find your elections to be confusing.

And by confusing, I mean idiotic.

All you need to watch is John Stewart and Stephen Colbert ... the only way to enjoy US politics.

Obama's not great, not even good, but if the alternative is mitt or newt, especially paul, then...

#9 Posted by Joker369 (858 posts) -

I vote for Jeff. Murder slingshots will save economy! In all seriousness though, I'll vote Obama because Romney is a flip flopper, Gingrich is crazy in his moon idea and I don't want anyone associated with the Bush administration. Paul has some wild ideas and is too anti-war(I do like his personality though), and Santorum doesn't seem like a stern leader.

I clicked Obama without even noticing Claude... shit.

This is what we call a biased survey. Also, yay for politics threads?

Ryan Davis for PRESIDENT!

#13 Posted by LibraryDues (340 posts) -

It kinda blows my mind to think that our president will be named Mitt, Newt, or Barack. Over 200 years of Georges, Williams and Johns, then apparently in 2012 we finally got fed up with all that WASPy shit and pulled a hard 180.

#14 Posted by DocHaus (1286 posts) -

I'm thinking a write-in vote for a Stephen Colbert/Matt Taibbi ticket. If by some god-forsaken miracle it actually won, then things would get real interesting.

Against who? Well, I am biased for Claude.

Settle down potential future leader, you only have about 25% of the vote, which is about equal to Republican, but half of Obama. Don't celebrate yet. This is just one primary.

Whose F. Claude?

Inside joke?

@Contrarian: Shit, fuck and hell. I need a town hall meeting.

No thanks, I don't vote.

Make sure Video Game King doesn't vote. He's not a citizen.

I voted Claude on this poll, but in all seriousness, as much as Obama hasn't lived up to the insanely high expectations he and his PR staff set for himself, none of the Republican candidates are suitable for the job. If worse comes to worse, I might vote write-in like I did during the 2004 election.

#26 Posted by ozzy369123 (43 posts) -

@Joker369: I agree, more murder slingshots in 2012.

#27 Posted by Muerthoz (344 posts) -

I'm voting for President John Henry Eden.   A supercomputer with the voice of Malcolm McDowell, what could possibly go wrong?

The Republicans are such a fucking circus that I can't see Obama not winning reelection.

Who did you vote for in 2004?

With everyone on on GB wanting freedom of the web, it is weird that more people have voted obama then ron paul

#33 Posted by McGhee (6091 posts) -

I have no idea how anyone could vote for Obama after all the shit he's done.

But it doesn't matter. It's all bullshit and we're all fucked.

Not until some crazy President invades ....... then you'll care.

Whoever John Stewart can make the most fun out of is usually best. Bring back Dubya!

It's just a ploy to rule over the Video_Game_King. Be cool.
#40 Posted by PeasantAbuse (5120 posts) -

I refuse to be led by someone named Newt or Mitt. Our lives are in your hands, Claude.

#41 Posted by Penelope (225 posts) -

Obama.

There are much worse things than having an intelligent, well-meaning, diplomatically skilled president, whose main flaw is being slightly ineffectual due mostly to the shitty confines of the way our political system works.

As for the worse things? Look anywhere else on the ballot come November (Exception: I like Ron Paul a lot actually. He's very smart and fair, but his economic principles would essentially break any anti-trust regulations we have).

He's not amazing, but he's done quite a bit that I do wholeheartedly endorse, and the stuff he hasn't been able to succeed on, I doubt anyone else could have gotten done either.

He reminds me of Jimmy Carter. That's a good thing.

#42 Posted by Village_Guy (2403 posts) -

Claude for President of the Free Universe of the Internet.

Let's give the US to Obama for good measure though. He seems to be the best choice, even though he haven't gotten too much of his politics through because of the way the American political system is kinda broken.

People tend to vote for the incumbent when the alternatives are just as bad, if not worse. Such is the case here.

A couple of random anime characters, because hell if I was giving my vote to either Bush or Kerry.
