Oh stop it ! I don’t support the nut Ron Paul or Mitt Romney(born ready to become president) but in this case, it is perry and gingrich who messed it up. It is not a secret that gingrich is lacking the organization. Little bit surprised about perry. Probably in the last 2 months, perry had lost lot of supporters ! There is no big conspiracy ! This is what it is !
Sadly, you may be right. It really does look like the fix is in for Romney and he will be foisted upon us just like McCain four years ago and the Bushes and Doles before that.
I guess the two Reagan landslides don't count for anything. For ever since, the GOP continues to churn out as their nominee some tired-out, middle-of-the-road, crossing-the-aisle, it's-my-turn establishment warhorse. (Insert your own cliches as you see fit)
Reagan once famously said that he never left the Democratic Party - the Democratic Party left him. Well I am about ready to say that about the GOP. If there is a conservative, viable third-party candidate, that is where my vote is going to go this year.
Theater? Blaming the process is not going to get a candidate anywhere. I was hoping for a long process. That is how Obama got so many e-mail addresses and volunteers. Organization!!! This is how you win in presidential politics. You must outwork the other side. Romney has been running for 6 years. It takes money volunteers and organization. I find it incomprehensible you can’t get 400 signatures in each congressional district and 10K total. How can a candidate run a smart disciplined campaign without an organization? The rules are not secret. Newt and Perry are flailing. It is sad to see.
