The mindset that forced many conservatives to support Mitt Romney against their best intentions has had the side effect of putting rockefeller republicans front and center.
Their worst fear is resulting in their party stumbling still in Romney’s direction.
It’s so sad, and I’m not hopeful at all of any 3rd party challenge. The 3rd parties were absolutely inept this past election cycle.
I’m fairly convinced another romney-type character will be foisted on us in 2016.
No 3rd party candidate will never amount to anything. The Republicans and Democrats collude in every state to prevent 3rd parties from succeeding. Ron Paul's first run for the Presidency was on the Libertarian ticket. What he discovered was that every single penny collected from campaign donations had to be spent fighting legal hurdles just to get on the ballot. And he had to fight these battles in every state individually. That left no money to actually campaign with. The system is rigged against 3rd parties and until that changes 3rd parties won't matter.
It can only be done with the consent of inept Republican primary voters, and I think they call him "Jebbie", and Barbara says he's the one!
