    At this point in time, I can't think of anyone. With the advantage of hind sight I'm not sure anyone could have defeated the Maobama gift machine. The only thing the GOP can do is spend the next 4 years developing a marketing machine that can perform similar to the Dems. 2008 and 2012 proved elections are not about policies anymore, they're about effective marketing.

    I'm with you. Hypothetically speaking though I believe Jon Huntsman matched with a conservative thinker such as Rubio would have done really well. The problem was he couldnt get off of the ground in places like Iowa where like an olympic sprinter you need a good start. A lot of people will complain about him being to moderate, but if you actually listened to him he was an extremely smart and relatable guy. To me that would have given us a better chance in swing areas.

    As long as you and others on the right continue to buy into such nonsense, it won’t make any difference who the GOP nominee might be, or might have been.

    Granted, Romney was a dreadful candidate, but his failure to win the election was a collective GOP fail.

    I would have paid to have seen Gingrich debate Oblamer, as much as he is disliked, I believe he would have mopped the floor with this moron...

    Huntsman would have had the same problem Romney did because of his dad, he would have been painted out of touch and all that crap, plus he came from Maobamas administration. Rubio is way too green, the dems may not have a problem with a first term senator but I think the GOP would. We got to have someone who can articulate to the young voters what all this debt will mean to their collective futures and their standard of living. But who the hell are we fooling, we don't chose the candidates, we just get to vote for the one we consider the lesser evil. The big money people really don't care who we vote for, they already own everyone.
