The convention date move, which will be set later this year, would make it the earliest for the GOP since 1948, CNN reports.

The GOP is a recipe for disaster.
If they nominate anyone other the a tea partier, I won’t vote for them and neither will most of my friends.

RNC shot both feet off in one blast. Suicide decision.
Fine with me.
And dump the endless debates moderated by journ-0-lists.
I see a shorter schedule allowing smaller budget candidates a better shot.

Oh goody...two additional months for the DBM to destroy the GOP nominee.

In both the 2008 and 2012 nominating contests, states anxious to be among the first contests pushed the nominating calendar into early January and the scramble proved detrimental to the GOP...."It dragged, and that wasn't helpful to us,"
I'm probably going to be in the minority here, but I agree with the move. It did drag on and gave the GOP candidates more time, and opportunities, to shoot themselves in the foot (Rick Perry comes to mind.) and more time and opportunity for the media to tear them apart. Hell, I'm a political junkie and I got sick and tired of the Debates. People came to hate the sight and sound of all the candidates before it finally ended. My great uncle used to say: "Too much of anything, even a good thing, is too much."
