The contributors to White House 2012 represent a cross-section of conservative opinions.

The 4 original authors are brought together by a chance encounter on a political debate website called, a site where you are afforded the opportunity to run your own campaign for president, in between what often turns out to be intense debate.

Through their involvement on U4Prez, Anthony, Jim, Ike, and Mike, developed an ideological bond that has helped turn into this joint venture known as White House 2012, a central location for information, news and opinion on the shaping race for the Republican presidential nomination. Since then, WH12’s sphere of influence has expanded and  our family of conservative authors has grown.  We have also had the fortune of being provided the additional insight of guest contributors like Iowa author, writer, radio talk show host, and general political agitator, Steve Deace.

The dramatic changes delivered by the liberal regime of Obama, Pelosi, and Reid, have Americans chomping at the bit to run quickly in another direction, a direction that the right Republican ticket can take the nation in. For that reason, the race for the Republican presidential nomination is going to startquickly and last long.

Given the lack of popularity and success of President Obama, continued high unemployment, a sluggish economy, a soaring deficit, racial tensions, foreign policy blunders,and an illconceived attempt to spend our way to prosperity, many Republicans will take advantage of the opportunity to run against President Obama. But in 2012, the G.O.P. field wont just be remembered for its quantity of contenders, it will also be remembered for the  quality and caliber of the candidates. But only one will win the nomination.

White House 2012 will assess the fied and describe the race every step of the way. To assure accurate and comprehensive coverage, several of the writers on White House 2012 are assigned to cover specific candidates, while still having the opportunity to discuss any and all the other contenders as well.

My favorite holiday is July 4th.    Check  that, it used to be July 4th. The last few have been disappointing.  I  think it’s because I look around and I see…I don’t even know what it is. This sound-bite based, PC, half-truth environment that our leaders, celebrities, unions and special interest groups have fostered is a fallacy and a farce. It is mocking the citizenry, numbing down the youth and ripping this country apart. It must        be stopped.

And so, I will attempt to do my part and pull back the curtain and expose the slimy hypocrisy from wherever it oozes (Republicans, too, if necessary). There’s a lot of  it and we’re in pretty deep, so I invite you to help me. Hell, who knows, together maybe we can to take back this country from those that stole it.

As for personal outlooks, I believe small government is good government, I just can’t decide whether it should be small or infinitesimal. I question government on all levels and doubt its’ competency with all enterprises. As a result, I have been labeled “to the right of conservative transcendentalism”.   Strangely, I’m somewhat comfortable with that. In addition to here, you can find me at or drop a line at

Steve Deace

Is he a broadcaster, writer, activist, or agitator? Or all of the above? Deace was born in Iowa and has lived all over the country, but spent most of his teenage years in Michigan which is why he’s a big fan of the Wolverines. He wrote a book called “Without a Vision the People Perish” which a scant few actually read, and has been hosting various talk radio programs since 1999. He’s been called nearly every name in the book, which he is very proud of considering the nastiest ones come from all the right enemies.  Through his website, Mr. Deace offers us experienced insight that provides  White House 2012 readers with a front row seat the the Iowa Republican presidential caucuses.  Look for his weekly Iowa Power Ranking and Candidates Weekly Wrap Up.

  1. The “Ranking” page excludes Fred Karger who was in fact the first confirmed Republican Presidential candidate. Unless you discriminate against gay candidates, please include Fred Karger. I informed the Federal Election Commission about his exclusion.

    • Are you serious? Do you have any idea of what you discussing? First of all, this ranking is an opinion of where the candidates stand. Second, such opinions are not up to the FEC. Third, this is my blog. It is not the government’s blog. And as such if I wanted to call it the Anti-Karger 2012 blog, I would have every right in the world to do so. Third, just because Karger was the first to announce his candidacy, does not mean that he will win anything and this ranking reflects that likely fact. Fourth, more space has been made available to Fred Karger on White House 2012, than he has been afforded on any other single site. In addition to his own wh12 bio page, he has been written about on more than four occasions. On o0ne of those occasions, what was written about him was based on an hour long interview that I had with him personally. And finally, you asinine buffoon, I am gay. So take your accusations and cram them up your lonely ass.

  2. I am interested in being involved with the campaign — I have a backgound in Motorcoach use and transportation logistics– would send resume if need be.

  3. I am interested in helping the Romney campaign develop a realistic, responsible and fact based policy on transportation (I used to work in that field: my retirement blog is:

    Also, I’ve contributed some $

  4. How do I get rid of the flipping VP contenders on the upper right hand side? I have difficulty enough seeing well enough to read, this flipping feature makes it impossible for me. Thanks
