Romney sucks donkey balls, and the RNC are going to cram him down our throats.
Don’t put all the blame on the RNC. Conservatives share the biggest part of the blame. We’ve done this to ourselves. The “good” Conservatives like Jim DeMint and Paul Ryan didn’t have the balls to run. So, look what we’re stuck with. And we get “loser” Conservatives dividing up the vote, because they all have egos too friggin’ big to drop out, and the lone Moderate cruises to the nomination. Happens every time. So, don’t just blame the RNC. Let’s take our share of the blame.
Maybe it’s time for true conservatives to abandon the Republican Party, then. I have to ask: how, exactly, are true conservatives to blame for people like Romney? This would only be the case if we vote for them.
I can't really blame the "good" Conservatives for staying out. The fact is, each time a Democrat president is up for re-election, the open primaries kill Republican chances of nominating a conservative candidate. That's the way the system works, the rug gets pulled out from beneath us every time. Until there is a grassroots campaign in a dozen or so states to rectify the problem, this is what we're going to be stuck with.
BTW, this primary-raiding works both ways. When a Republican incumbent is the presumptive nominee, the open primaries are damaging to the Democrats - just not as badly (our side apparently has more scruples).
As for Obama making the SCOTUS a campaign issue, I hope he does. Health care reform still polls around 66% against, so if he wants to take on the branch of government that may have just made seven out of ten voters very happy - hey, I'm all for it. All he'll stir up is the usual group of parasites.
