Nice try...feel free to go back and look at my posts over the course of several years. Just because you aren't able to articulate an argument well doesn't mean you have to give up by calling someone else a "plant"
So in 2008 the party establishment was backing Huckabee win's in Iowa? I don't seem to recall that. Money is important in politics, but does not force someone to vote for a candidate. Look at the Virginia Senate race....Gillespie was outspent big time, but had a great message and nearly pulled off the upset of the century.
Party Elites did not force millions of primary voters to choose Romney in 2012. I think there is a belief that the GOP as a whole consists of mosly those on the far end of the Conservative spectrum which simply is not true. There are many more "mainstream" conservatives than what some on Townhall want to admit to.
You are missing the point. If "Voters" really wanted someone different, why didn't they go and vote for someone different. A "party elite" didn't force millions to vote for Romney in the primaries. This is just a stale argument that is used over and over by those who didn't get the candidate they wanted.
It sounds like this lady is still stuck in 1964. A lot has changed since then, and the ability for any candidate to have outreach to the "grassroots" of the party is much greater now than 50 years ago. Does this lady realize that...its actual votes...not a committee of party elders...that picks the eventual nominee?
Thank you Mr. Romney for your continued efforts to end the Democrats control of the Senate. The downward spiral of the Senate started nearly 8 years ago, and thanks to your support of candidates from all parts of the conservative spectrum, we have a great chance of winning tomorrow!

I don't know Carson well enough to comment, but Paul or Perry...really?

I agree Cartwright...at this point I don't see any other candidate with executive experience that can win with the exception of Scott Walker, but if he loses in November, his 2016 chances are all but gone

Well, my point I was just making is that the MSM can do that to any GOP candidate on a host of topics. Look at all this anti-women rhetoric they continue to put out there...or anti-minority for any GOP candidate like Cruz (and Romney for that matter) who stood firm on the immigration issue. I think the 2012 election was a snapshot in time where the middle of the country was still fooled into thinking that Obama and Dem policies were advantageous.

You are exactly right...Ted Cruz is another smooth-talking Senator that has no executive experience. The guy rubs a lot of people the wrong way and would have no chance of winning a general election.
