    The reality show facing GOP voters

    This article you would think is written by a liberal...but you would be wrong...its written by an X Republican Congressman

    All the world is a stage and in this year’s GOP presidential race, it is a reality show soundstage cluttered with clownish characters auditioning for the role of commander in chief.
    A bemused audience of political spectators and cable chatterers has been entertained this year by a fallen speaker, a pizza mogul, a wild-eyed ideologue, a billionaire developer and a hockey mom from Alaska.
    Two of those actors have starred in actual reality shows, but — here’s the hook — no one in this actors’ studio is qualified to be president.

    Nobody will remember this stuff a year from now when unemployment is still 9% and Biden is still popping off about the choice being betwen rapes and recovery.

    Yep. I am not impressed with the choices I'm being given. I really don't like the current administration, but I have no faith that any of the choices out there would be a real improvement. This country needs a viable third (and fourth) party.

    The only thing a third party will do is put Obama back in the White House four more years.

    Probably true. Mostly because it would take a lot longer than a year for that party to gain the necessary following to get elected. I think the new party is necessary long-run, however. Maybe it should start in 2013.

    You should take over one of the major parties, like the Marxists took over the Democrat party in 2008 and the Tea Party took over the Republicans in 2010.

    That's the best path to change.

    The Tea Party decimated the Democrat stranglehold on the country in 2010 and they will finish the job in 2012.

    I you're looking for Jon Huntsman on steriods, you're wasting your time.
