Why don’t you also blame the GOPe for running a centrist republican that couldn’t even win his home state?

Romney wasn't a centrist ~ he may have thought he was, but there's no center in American politics ~ never has been.

He got caught by the Carter kid saying he was trying to get the votes of the undecided 10% in the middle ~ the moderates.

What a complete idiot.

b/c that is not the point of the discussion (A discussion we DAMN WELL better be having now for 2016!!!)

The point is once the candidate is chosen (no matter how bad), the perfect is the enemy of the good. We had Romney shoved down our throats.

In the end, it was WE that chose him. Machinations aside, only little children are influenced by ads and posters. The children won.

Once that bitter pill was created we HAD to swallow it. If we are all saying NEVER AGAIN SUCH A BITTER PILL, great: I am on board (you would think we would have learned from McCain).

But all of life is choosing the least of evils. Rarely do we get to choose from the best goods.

Time for us to grow up.
