As an independent I would have gladly welcomed a viable Republican candidate in 2012.
And there were more than a few in the early running.
But at a time when American needed a real fiscal conservative the Republican Party opted for a caricature of a social conservative with a proven chief executive history of fiscal liberalism.
I mean, after all, Romney was doing socialized medicine before socialized medicine was cool.
So to complain that Obama sux because of Obamacare when the alternative to Obama was the guy who ran the pilot program for Obamacare is kinda silliy.
