In response to:

Romney at the Bat

I, a simple citizen, did not choose Mr. Romney for the primaries. I would not choose Obama for any election EVER and yet, the majority, so it is to be believed chose Romney for the run. Was it a little switcharoo. Did Obama cheat in this area too. Smart men don't cheat only petty little twits do. So this is what it came down too.... Obama against the world and it is recorded on many occasions that Obama is not only sorry, he's a Sorry Loser. And we are stuck with the man..... until he's out.

This is the same way we got Dole and McCain. In primary states where there's no party registration, Democrats vote for the most liberal Republicans, rather than voting for their own candidates.
With humble apologies to Ernest Lawrence Thayer, who wrote "Casey at the Bat," which was published in The San Francisco Examiner in 1888.

The outlook wasn't brilliant for the GOP this year:

The economy had tanked; hope and change had morphed to fear.

The strong and swift refused to join the presidential race.

So the weak and doubtful rose -- and tried to take their place.

Our Herman Cain, for instance, flogged his taxing 9-9-9.

To 10 parts cuts but 1 part tax, all said that they'd decline.

Newt brought his wife, who wore her hair as if it were a hat.

Forget the freak show, sages...
