Looking more and more like 2008

I don't think it's that bad. The Republican incumbent had been unpopular for quite a while when the market downturn became apparent, followed by a financial crisis, followed by very unpopular emergency measures by said Republican incumbent. It's a wonder anyone tried for to run for the GOP ticket that year, but (surprise, surprise) we ended up with an apologist RINO. Meanwhile, everyone was worried about a Hillary Clinton candidacy and Obama was considered to be an also ran along with tired old candidates like Biden, IIRC. Fast forward to 2011. It isn't even 2012 yet and everything's in reverse. So there are a lot of unknowns trying for the nomination, and there is no GOP messiah yet. Can it possibly be worse than McCain in 2008?
Actually, yes it can. Trump. McCain was the MSM's favorite GOP candidate. That makes McCain the closest thing we're going to get to a GOP "messiah". Like Trump, McCain is a RINO. The difference is that McCain actually has a few convincing conservative stances on some issues, and he's taken seriously by the press.
