The quiet operator

Someone is out there beneath the distractions and radar actively framing a run for 2016. This is not an endorsement, but I saw this interesting article. I’ll put a couple excerpts out here. Sort of like some spy story.

GEORGE PATAKI—QUIETLY CONNECTING WITH CONSERVATIVES UNDER RADAR: “National Media Clueless”

Dec 20 2014 | Conservative Base

Enter George Pataki. The former New York Governor is best known for his leadership on 9-11 and its aftermath. However, after recent trips to New Hampshire and South Carolina, conservatives are finding out that he is rock solid when it comes to issues they care about like immigration and common core. “I was surprised,” one long time observer of GOP politics told Conservative Base. “He articulated, better than anyone I’ve heard, why conservatives must oppose common core and why immigration must respect the rule of law.” Other observers noted that instead of well-rehearsed and carefully scripted 15-second sound bites, Pataki is able to go 3 and 4 layers deep on just about every subject, telling you the history and what the conservative, pro-free enterprise solution should be. “He’s Gingrich with discipline,” summed up one attendee at a recent Pataki talk.

With the GOP establishment trying to shove a nominee down the throats of the rank-and-file, the possibility of a Pataki candidacy is refreshing. The recent University of North Carolina Study of the 2012 Election, which revealed that it took 22 aides and handlers for the Romney Campaign to send out a “tweet” on Twitter, is not lost on the grass roots.

Now this is not an endorsement of him. Just someone else in the mix that no one seems to pay attention to. I don’t know if “Gingrich with discipline” is a slap or compliment?

There is a need for someone who isn’t tongue-tied when it comes to making a case. I get the impression he’s not someone who can be shoved aside, if he has the drive. Maybe someone can influence discussion besides Jeb? And Jeb demands a big stage.

Who knew Romney was so communication challenged?

    Hi Bull,

    I tweeted this article. It’s quite interesting. The dark horse eh? I just read an article on Rasmussen that hardly any conservatives want Jeb. Wow, surprise, surprise! DUH! Of course we don’t want Jeb. He’s a rhino, an illegal immigrant lover, Common Core.

    We need a real conservative. I know you stated this is not an endorsement but I’d sure love to see someone with real conservative values run in 2016. The repub est. is trying to shove another rhino down our throats. This time the people aren’t going for it.

      So right, Pepp. Nothing to get too excited about, is there? Jeb sucking the oxygen out of everything. What bugs me more than Jeb running is this pac he has to support all his like-minded candidates. We need another king maker, eh? They wasted no time shoving this on us. Thanks for the tweet.
