    then what?  If nothing else this is going to be the most entertaining GOP presidential primary …. EVER!

    If Romney still turns out to be the last one left standing, will dissatisfaction be such that there could be one or more none of the above, third or even fourth party candidates with enough juice to make real dents?  Just how crazy is that cu-razy GOTP base? Round and round and round she goes.  Where she stops…

      Colorado may have already previewed a possible scenario for 2012 — a feeble GOP candidate, a rogue independent 3rd party candidate (Bloomenthal, Trump — basically an egomaniac wealthy enough to self-fund), and the Democrat (luckiest man alive, Obama!)

    a living example of Republican morals and alternate universe thinking.

    Conspicuous silence from him on the prior thread about Newt kicking Mitt’s ass.

    To make a Newt Gingrich statement, take a Michele Bachmann statement and append the words “Peloponnesian War” to the end.

    to be their president.  Romney is in trouble.  The narrative is solidifying around him.  He can’t be trusted and isn’t genuine.

    Wait until the Republicans wake up after the RNC convention and realize they have been sleeping with Newt.  That’s going to be a shock to the old Tea Party system.

    On the plus side, there should be some fun debates with Newt facing off against Obama on stage.

    to write about this… Pretty much the first poll post-Cain. Might be indicative who his supporters are gravitating to…

    Realistically, Romney is the ONLY GOP candidate who has a chance against Obama in the general.  Gingrich?  Not.  

    So let’s all hope the Newt wins the GOP nomination, thus allowing Obama a relatively easy re-election win and, by the way, sweeping out the GOP’s “Christian” Taliban.
