It’s really time for the Pat’s and Newt’s and Dick’s and the old coots to just fade away. Here in Wisconsin, we have a young guy, Paul Ryan. Minnesota has Michele Bachmann. Alaska has Sarah Palin. There are others out there. These old guys just need to retire and live out their lives with their grandkids and great-grand kids.
Or, how about another Paul that has been right all along? Ron Paul? Everybody called him a cook, etc. when he was the only one in the primaries talking against run away spending by his colleagues, including President Bush, but he was right all along. Instead, everybody jumped behind Mitt Romney and John McCain and we ended up having our @$$3$ handed to us for good reason.
