2. That sums it up nicely, thanks. I'll try not wear out my Keyboard this time responding ;-)
Suppose all the GOP primary "Candidates" were a collection of those (Tools) tho, so he wasn't an exception to that particular rule. As I've heard other people comment, I have to wonder if the TeaPublicans thought there was ever REALLY any chance of winning the 2012 election.
Even blowhard "Fringers" like Rush L!mpd!ck are questioning the current Right Wing leadership, he's recently pointed out that they'll never win National Elections while running on the completely Partisan nonsense "GOP Platform" that prevailed during the 2012 election.
Why would "Fringe" Right Wingnuts like Rush suddenly begin to make sense to the rest of us? He's been saying that TeaPublicans are TOO FRINGE to be able to win National Elections, what a surprise!
So by winning the Primary "Candidate" Election, by proving in Nationally Broadcast Debates how much MORE of a Fringe TeaBagger he could be as compared to ANY other candidate, by doing THAT Mitt Romney lost the National Election.
Having won the Primary, once Mitt Romney achieved Right Wing "TeaBagger" approval compared to the collection of "Clown" candidates in the GOP, their final "Selectee" Mitt was then forced to run away from all the Televised Rhetorical Cr@p he'd been producing across the preceding year.
Because of that, the rest of us (We the Sane Public) could easily determine that "Fringe TeaBaggers" have no place in our Presidential Elections process, couldn't possibly be elected to office.
And I've been forced to agree with Rush L!mpd!ck for the first time EVER. But as they say, even a stopped clock is correct twice a day.
