    If the GOP wants to regain the WH in 2012, Romney is the only chance they have at this point. Palin and Bachmann are bother freak shows in a Circus. If the Tea Party again uses its influence to nominate wacked out candiates in 2012, the GOP will again see power slip through its fingers. It is just a fact...

    Maybe he will do better than McCain, you konw, the guy he couldn't beat last time despire most people hating McCain?

    To be fair, I support Ron Paul, and McCain and Mitt were ahead of him. The main difference is the media and GOP treated McCain/Mitt as equals.

    You mean like taking over 60 House seats? See it slip away like that? The country could use it.

    Are you a liberal?


    Romney won't be the choice. Nor will Palin or Bachmann.

    There's still a whole lot of time between now and the next Presidential election. If the GOP really wants a chance, their potential candidates should make a point to not think anything about it for now, and focus on the truly important business at hand, so that they can show the people that they care about more than just election day.

    I don't think Romney is the "only" chance the Republicans have. It's not like Obama is this unbeatable politician. He would be, however, a good candidate because he has economic credentials and appeals to the middle. But he isn't the only one. A governor who has run his state well would be another. A candidate who is primarily known as a social conservative would be a bad choice because the economy is going to be the issue. However, I doubt the Republicans would pick someone like that. They're generally smarter than the Democrats at picking Presidential candidates.

    I'm still hoping for a relatively unknown rising star to appear.

    Please.

    Republicans need to pick their most-expendable throw-away candidate.
