Romney and GOP Conservatives Struggle to Find a Comfort Zone

The "Rupublican Establishment" is blind and lost. If McCain, a much more likable and successful RINO politician, can't compete with Machine Obama then Romney has not a chance. History will look back on this Republican primary process and ask, "What the Hell were they thinking?" Of ALL the candidates in the primary, they chose the robotic, charisma-devoid, RomneyCare, Wall-Street financed, RINO that will not win the moderate vote and will not inspire the conservative base to come out to vote for him? The moderates will fall for the silver-tongued Obama again (unispired by Romney), the conservatives will stay at home (uninspired by Romney), and Obama will win in a bigger landslide in 2012 than in 2008.

Considering Rick Santorum's sudden departure from the race, it's time to quit dancing around and bluntly state what the problem is for the man likely to become the Republican nominee for president.

Republicans and others who consider themselves part of the "conservative wing" of the party, with some exceptions, stiff-armed Romney early on based on the belief that he was not one of them and could be defeated. But now, as the nomination looks increasingly his, the Romney camp is stiff-arming that same wing of the party. The question is, can money alone buy one the presidency?

There is true irony...
