    Carville: GOP adults want 'children' to behave themselves - CNN.com

    Is there someone in the wings who is going to be the Conservative saviour of the GOP?

    Leave it to one of the most childish of children of the democratics (he of the "Drag a hundred-dollar bill through a trailer park..." smear) to pretend that he can tell anyone to act like an adult.

    Absolutely priceless.

    Get used to the delight of various pundits as the republicans completely self destruct their nominating process and possibly their party this year, it's hard to feel sorry for people who are suffering from deliberate self-inflicted wounds.

    One could try to write a letter to the adults in the DNC, if there were any.

    Right...In the meantime your Boiking is running around acting as though he's a proxy for Christ himself.

    Good luck with that one.

    Unlikely.

    There simply isn't enough blood in the water to attract the sharks.

    I think most of the adults in the GOP realize Obama is going to get a second term because as a rule, we don't throw out incumbants unless things are really, really bad.

    Things are bad right now, but they aren't as bad as they were in 2009.

    Jeb Bush could give Obama a real run for his money, but he'd have to work pretty hard for it. But if he waits until 2016, he'll have the advantage of not facing an incumbant.

    And here's where I think Obama is making a mistake. Quick, who is Obama's successor?

    Reagan had the wisdom to groom Bush-41 as a successor and Clinton Groomed Al Gore. Bush =-43 did no such thing, and niether is Obama, as near as I can tell.

    Not likely.

    The reason why most of the heavy hitters sat this one out is because they correctly reasoned that it’s tough running against an incumbent. They’ll wait for 2016 when the republican nominee will likely be the next president.

    Everyone knows that the GOP would love to see "Anyone but Mitt". But who will it be? Who will step up? Will Mitch or Jeb or Christie or Sarah or....who will it be?

    It is looking more and more like Mitt the Moderate will be your nominee. You good with that? I AM!
