    You're missing the point. In 2008 even a 1st year senator with zero experience at doing anything (community organizer??) won because the party in-power was terrible. Now after 4-years in power the question is "are you better now than 4-years ago?' and the answer is NO.

    So in 2008 even BO could get elected, in 2012 ANY GOP candidate could win. Its not a debate, its a matter of economic timing.

    So, when President Obama wins re-election in November, I will remind all of you of these silly comments.

    Only Mitt can beat Obama, and, no, Frank, your progressives won't leave Obama. Who are they going to join, you? :lol:

    Unless the GOP convention is open and a dark horse candidate gets the nomination I suspect Obama will win. Those left seeking the Republican Nomination are bereft of ideas and each one wants to out conservative the others. As they continue to offer the most extreme and ridiculous rhetoric to appease the New Right, they continue to alienate normal, moderate Republicans (referred to by the nitwits on the right as The RINO's). What the far right forgets is they are not RINO's and Elephants never forget.

    Mitt will play to the Tea Party only to the point he can ignore them, which is almost hammer time in the next two weeks. His team has been recruiting mainstream GOP alternatives to the Tea Party candidates in the House primaries in NY, IL, and CA that I know of.

    In addition to alienating normal, moderate Republicans, think of all the moderates, independents, and weak democrats also alienated, needed by Romney to win.
