Here's a suggestion for Newt and Rick if they insist on going one-on-one against Romney. Since primary loss after primary loss clearly isn't working, how about a game of Rock, Paper, Scissors and the loser goes home?
Seriously, it's time for Mitt to get some of his own ideas and not take them from Newt (energy) and from Rick (freedom). Without his own "big ideas" and own "vision thing," he will lose. Trust me.
Most importantly, it's time for Mitt to reach out to the conservatives. If he doesn't, he won't ever be president, either, and Obama will get four more years to continue his deconstruction of America.
