Dear Republicans: Is this REALLY the best you can do?

OK, Rmoney seems to be, at best, the LEAST nutty of your opening field, with one glaring exception.

The opening field: Rmoney (the eternal candidate), Santorum, Bachmann, West, Gingrich, Paul, Cain, Perry, and assorted other loopies.

The glaring exception to the clown car bunch was Jon Huntsman.
He seems to be an actual person.
I think he'd qualify as an old fashioned moderate Republican.
If he had won your nomination, we might be in trouble now.

But you didn't.
No, your party has been co-opted by the tea baggers, birthers, evangelicals, and assorted other fringer whack jobs..
So Huntsman was SOL from the get-go.
Poor guy.

So now you've made your choice and you're stuck with the 'job creator' guy who loved to create them anyplace but here in the U.S.
The 'I have an elevator for my cars' guy.
In just one of his many mansions.
The 'My taxes are my business' guy.
Yeah, he understands what us 99% are dealing with.

You picked the guy who would have let U.S. automakers go down the tubes.
The guy who would have disbanded FEMA.
And the guy who has changed his professed positions on so many issues we need a scorecard just to try and keep up.

REALLY guys?
This is the best you can do?

If that's the case, then you deserve to lose and lose big.
Love,
trof

1. The Plutocracy now selects the GOP candidates.

And they don't want anyone smarter than they are.

4. Unfortunately, this IS the best they can do

Anyone with a shred of intelligence or common decency has been driven out, or into hdiing, by the Koch-backed Teabaggers.

I was trying to tell people for a couple of years that Romney was going to come on strong. While the other GOP candidates were looking at themselves in the mirror or howling a the moon, Romney was doing a lot of hard work -- seriously. He was all over the country in 2010, raising money and making campaign appearances for downticket candidates. He piled up a lot of chits that he could all in later. Then, when the others fell, or were pushed, out of the clown car one by one, he was the only one left.

Right now, their only hope for 2016 is, sadly enough, Christie -- and he's unelectable.

5. It was a calculated mased on their assumption that bigotry was their trump card, so ...

they nominated the most pasty-faced, lily-white, pig-fucker they could find.

9. Now hold on there, mister!

I bet she's had all kinds of experiences with relatives. Her parents did, too. That's just obvious.

7. And in the process of getting your nomination he lied right to your face

The severe conservative abandoned every principle you hold dear.

He has mocked your core core beliefs and is exactly the rino you feared he would be.

How do you feel about that?

8. Huntsman would have been formidable.

Smart, believes in science (shock, horror!!) and a demonstrably sane, reasonable adult. Everything about Jon Huntsman that would have made him a very strong candidate in the general election was a presumptive disqualifier with the "yelling at the clouds" racist, paranoid base. I feared him until I took a second look at the Repuke primary electorate. The baggers and the loons would nominate a ham sandwich if it could make an X on the teabangelical pledge form.
