John, the problem with the theory that a Party should run a candidate who is in touch with or otherwise represents those in the Grass Roots of the party is wishful thinking! That kind of a guy, having no criminal or misdemeanor blackmail on an insider will never even get his name in print! There is hardly a politician in the business at any level who doesn't owe something significant to the Godfathers of the party! You saw again how the establishment insiders savaged the outsiders. Bill Krystol, George Will and Rove didn't even try to hide their king making ambitions. They scorned those who had not kissed their ring. and were as publicly critical of Romney as the Media.

The mark of a Banana Republic is the "Selective Enforcement of Laws!" Obama has raised that to new levels and the Media has set that behavior as the new norm!

Memorandum to the GOP: When running an election campaign it is often valuable to select a nominee who represents the rank and file of the Party. This is how other Parties do it. Perhaps you might get on board.


Well let’s start with who not to select.

There was George H.W. Bush, who, while a nice, honorable public servant, won primarily because of the record Reagan established. He lost because the rest of us thought that when he mouthed the words “Read my lips, go to Texas,” he meant “Read my lips, no new taxes.”  

There was Bob Dole,...
