Look at these sorry bunch of suckas…

The Republican field of contenders for the 2012 presidential nomination is nearly set, but that has not stopped speculation about luring another high-profile contender into the race.

One of the big questions about which Republicans will enter the race was answered on Sunday when Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels joined a long list of party stalwarts who have passed on a White House bid.

While the decision bolstered two candidates already in the race — former Governors Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota and Mitt Romney of Massachusetts — it also spotlighted efforts to coax other prominent Republicans into the fray.

Governors Chris Christie of New Jersey and Rick Perry of Texas, along with former Governor Jeb Bush of Florida, are at the top of the wish list for Republicans unhappy with the current crop of contenders.

All three repeated their denials of interest in a 2012 bid after Daniels stepped aside. U.S. Representative Paul Ryan, who has led the party’s congressional efforts to trim federal spending, also insisted he would not run for the right to challenge Democratic President Barack Obama in 2012.

The flurry of speculation highlighted the dissatisfaction among some Republicans with the field, which also includes former House of Representatives Speaker Newt Gingrich, former Senator Rick Santorum, former pizza executive Herman Cain and Representative Ron Paul.

“You are seeing a lot of discontent. Republicans want a choice, and there are some prominent holes in the field,” said party strategist Ford O’Connell.

For those of you who may be into the whole Republican thing, is there actually a candidate that you think would honestly be better suited for President than Barack Obama???
