There has been increasing talk over the past few months over who would represent the Republican Party and run against Barack Obama in the U.S presidential election this year. David Reilly has taken a look at the contenders for the front runners for the Republican nomination to save the rest of us in Europeland the trouble.
“The 2012 Republican presidential primaries are the selection processes in which voters of the Republican Party will choose their nominee for President of the United States in the 2012 presidential election.”
Thanks Wikipedia, good to have you back.
Seeing as all these chaps are from the same political party, there’s a lot of crossover in their policies. So with that in mind, let’s take a look at their non-political lives.
Fun Fact: In 2010, Romney had a physical altercation with LMFAO member Sky Blu on an airplane. The scuffle is alleged to have been the result of Romney asking Mr. Blu, who was sitting in front of him, to put his seat in the upright position. While Romney maintains that he did not retaliate to Sky Blu’s physicality, the Grammy-nominated rapper claims that Romney inflicted a “Vulcan grip” on his neck. If Romney did not engage the rapper, lying about a 62 year old man getting the better of him in a fight may have damaged Sky Blu’s rap coolness, although probably not as much as using Star Trek terminology in the lie. On the other hand, if Romney did indeed bust out a move he learned from Spock on an arrogant, confrontational member of LMFAO, he needs to start using that story as part of his campaign.
