Rank the current Republican candidates from the least anxiety inducing to the scariest

This thread is an unscientific survey aimed towards liberal Democrats, alleged centrists (who are not Republican wolves-in-independentSheeps' clothing)

Rank the current Republican candidates from the least anxiety inducing to the scariest:

I'll go first:
1. Ron Paul
2. Mitt Romney
3. Jon Huntsman



4. Newt Gingrich
4. Rick Perry
5. Rick Santorum
6. Michelle Bachmann

@tsarstepan,
Could easily support:
Buddy Roemer
Gary Johnson
Jon Huntsman

Out there but has some interesting ideas:
Ron Paul

Can't see myself ever voting for any of these but will order them:
Mitt
Rick Santorum
Newt
Rick Perry
Michelle Bachman
Joe Nation

@tsarstepan,
1. Mitt Romney
3. Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul
4. Rick Perry
10.Michelle Bachmann, Rick Santorum

Pitiful bunch.
Mitten is a robot.
The rest are the oddest group of people. They ought to be seeking psychiatric help instead of the Presidency.
(I know, we aren't supposed to call names and such, but these folks, and I've known a LOT of nutty folks, are really nutty, folks.

Except, Perry. He's just a lovable dope. Yesterday he said we should be getting more oil from Canada so we wouldn't be so dependent on gettingforeignom foriegn countries. (um)

I left Huntsmen out, but he is. He just hasn't realized it yet.

Of course, last time about now, Huckabee was supposed to win or that actor from Tennessee.

@JPB,
So I read that Gary Johnson is out of the Republican primary but pushing to grab the libertarian nominee but I don't remember hearing Buddy Roemer's name in the mix.

@tsarstepan,
Ron Paul is damn scary... true believers always are.

Give me Mitt Romney, who always knows what side of the bread is buttered.

@DrewDad,
I kind of figure that as a hypothetical president and relative outsider, both Republican and Democratic parties of the Congress and Senate would stop Ron Paul from implementing his craziest libertarian plans.

@tsarstepan,
Yeah, but I'm not real keen on voting for someone because Congress would keep him from being effective.

@roger,
Though I'm voting for Obama, I'm just trying to figure out the best worse case scenario if Obama loses his reelection chance and which Republican would make the least scariest president of the lot.

@tsarstepan,
1. Jon Huntsman (throwback to a more bipartisan time)
2. Mitt Romney (he did ok in Mass, but he'll never get my vote now)
3. Newt Gingrich (despite his ego, pretty smart, but also the architect of the current mess in Washington)
4. Ron Paul (sticks to his beliefs even if some are nutty)
5. Rick Perry (doesn't seem to buy that social conservative stuff, just plays along)
6. Rick Santorum (might be ok if he didn't buy that social conservative stuff)
7. Michelle Bachmann (a few bullets short of a full clip)
