First Christie's out, Now Palin: What Are They Afraid of?
It's starting to look like Republicans aren't feeling too good about their prospects in the coming election. Christie's and Palin's announcements that they won't seek the nomination constitute a 1-2 punch to the gut of the party. In the course of two short days, the most sought-after and most recognizable potential candidates both took a pass on throwing their hat into the ring.

1. Rubio also is taking a pass as VP.
According to Rachel Maddow on her show.....
That he didn't leave even a small window.

2. The (R)s can't (won't) fix the mess they've made...
so they'll stand on the sidelines making things even worse until they think they have a shot at the pResidency and a mojority Congress.

We're just stupid enough to fall for it.

3. Jeb Bush is lurking just beneath the surface.
The Repocons will let the Tee Peeers clown show self destruct and then they will offer some one like Jeb and most Republicans and conservative independents will be so relieved that would vote Duhbya back if he ran.

4. The debate!
They may seem smarter than a 5th grader next to each other, but one on one debating Obama?

They would look soooooo dumb.

5. My guess is that the more clownish of the contenders
has run up against the real Republcan Party leadership and it sources of influence and money. I can't imaging there are many CEO's and Bank Presidents who want the TeePeers to keep getting elected, much less the Old Testament Christians.
And they for sure don't believe in the End Times. They are having too much fun getting richer.
