Re the Feb. 13 article, There’s no mirth in girth: Two-term Democratic President Bill Clinton was replaced by two-term Republican President George W. Bush who was replaced by two-term Democratic President Barack Obama.
The most likely Republican candidates in 2016 are Jeb Bush, Chris Christie, Bobby Jindal, Rand Paul, Marco Rubio and Paul Ryan.
According to the non-partisan, non-profit OnTheIssues.org, all but Christie are conservatives who claim to believe in freedom. That means they believe in the freedom to have a personal arsenal.
It doesn’t mean they believe in the freedom to love whom one chooses or a woman’s reproductive freedom.
I could vote for a fat Christie; I couldn’t vote for a conservative.
