    The crazies think they can win like the teabaggers did in 2010. I think people learned a lesson from that.

    It could be argued that Romney is in fact a victim of general GOP incompetence; a hapless dupe set up to fail in an election no republican candidate was expected to win. Or perhaps it was assumed by GOP party bosses that, given the economy and ‘hatred’ of Obama, it wouldn’t matter the republican nominee, he’d realize easy victory regardless the quality of campaign.

    Indeed, the Romney campaign does appear to be merely going through the motions, as if scripted at the start of the primaries where Romney would be well ahead in the polls come September/October. He’s spent more time recently in non-swing states like Utah and California ‘fund-raising’ rather than in battleground states like Ohio, where he must win if he’s to have any chance.

    Again, which was likely not the intent of the GOP establishment given their perception of the election back in January – where all republicans had to do was run a warm body (or ham sandwich, as it were…) to an easy November victory.

    Needless to say that victory won’t materialize, and republicans will learn a hard lesson about underestimating an opponent and misjudging the American voter.

    Openly expressing the contempt that today's GOP seems to have for the working classes was an incredibly stupid thing to do.

    Its one thing to feel that way, another entirely to admit it.

    Romney has proven himself to be not up to the grand conspiracy that is currently running the GOP.

    Naturally many of those uber-conservative cooks are distancing themselves from the chef who spilled their beans

    I think it's a concept of CONTEXT.

    The context of Pelosi's comments is that when people who get sick or injured who can afford insurance and don't buy it, the rest of us end up paying for it. It's a valid complaint about a bad system.

    Mittens had everything wrong in his statement about the "47%".
