Under the Dome

Is 2016 the year for President Richard Burr?

In case anyone hasn't had their fill of presidential politics, the Des Moines Register has gathered an early Republican wish-list of potential candidates.

Several have long been discussed and seem all but sure to announce explortatory committees sooner than anyone would like to believe – Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, New Mexico Gov. Susana Martinez.

But the Iowa newspaper gives a hat-tip to one North Carolinian who has largely been outside of the spotlight. "More than a dozen" GOP leaders were interviewed to build the list, and Sen. Richard Burr grabbed enough attention to be one of the "other mentions."

Disgusting Richard Burr

Oh goodie, another do-nothing, milk toast, blahse, RHINO, centrist, self-absorbed white guy seeking the white house. I am a conservative white male, and I cannot fathom a greater disappointment than the fake, flawed, useless man that he is. Conservatives need soooooo much better. maybe a damned illegal Mexican will be a more effective Senator and potential White House hopeful. I am so disgusted by my fellow white people who are so focused on their own wallets and their over indulgences, that they allowed this country to be overrun by blood-sucking illegal aliens. And I am equally disgusted by the white, selfish, look-the-other-way Republicans who have allowed it all to happen. I vomit in your faces!

I can't stop laughing

... enought to comment, but I am going to try: Richard Burr has about as much charismas as a wet dishrag. He does nothing. He introduces nothing. He has no ideas. No vision. And he is dull, dull, dull. There is now way he will ever be President. I question whether he can even win re-election next time. The guy is a black hole.
