    Herman Cain would have lost even worse!!!

    cant let any of the nuts of the party run for president and expect any type of fight

    Palin
    McCain
    Bachmann

    would have all lost in landslides

    Romney was clearly their least worst candidate by a country mile. If he couldn't pull it off, then the primary dropouts had less than no chance.

    I don't believe the Right in general is clamoring for someone farther to the right. Every four years I am astounded by the effort they invest in "mobilizing the base"... the very same base that that dislikes the Democrats every bit as much as they like the Republicans. They are already mobilized. Politics stopped being about liking "your guy" in favor of disliking "the other guy" years and years and years ago. The fact that the Democrats got someone in 2008 that they genuinely liked made him pretty hard to stop, but enough people fell into the disappointed category in 2012 to nullify the previous advantage.

    The Republicans need to start appealing to moderates if they want any hope of gaining seats anytime soon. And even though the word "moderate" can barely be applied, I think Ron Paul would have had a huge victory if he had the nomination.

    I don't think Paul specifically would've had a huge victory. Its way too easy to come up with attack ads for him. But I agree, Republicans need to nominate more moderate candidates, at least on social issues.
    There should be Instant Runoff Voting

    We used to use the proper colors here. I have no idea who decided to flip them, but it was when I wasn't looking.
    You can never be safe from a government that can keep you completely safe from each other and the world. You must choose.

    I wish they'd switch back. The red Republican/blue Democratic maps are always so ugly.

    Which is why liberals hated him so much.

    I don't think liberals hated him. I think they were amused by him. I'm not a liberal, though I am an anti-conservative, and I found him incredibly entertaining, though not to his benefit.
