Dismay at GOP field
This is an archived article that was published on sltrib.com in 2011, and information in the article may be outdated. It is provided only for personal research purposes and may not be reprinted.

As one who likes a broad field of capable presidential candidates, I am dismayed at the dismal bunch of GOP contenders. The likes of Rick Perry, Herman Cain, Michele Bachmann and, sigh, Newt Gingrich, invite dismay.

Happily, Mitt Romney and Jon Huntsman Jr. are far better prospects. Not so happy is their slow slog in making headway.

The possibility of a relatively easy run for a second term for President Barack Obama is welcome to a sizeable number of voters. Still, I prefer having a choice from a field of contenders viewed as being up to the job.

Hopefully, some will come forward.
