Crystal, Crystal, Crystal, perhaps we should explain something for you. You wrote, " the same people who insisted Mitt Romney be anointed the GOP 2012 presidential nominee..."
Guess what Crystal, the "people" who wanted Mitt Romney as the presidential nominee were the Republican voters, otherwise he would not have been the nominee. We are not yet in a banana republic, the party members across the country actually voted their choice and Romney won the most votes.
We coould discuss the less than great selection of candidates in this past cycle but please don't make it sound like there was some kind of coup or bana republic shenanigans in the selection of Romney because that just was not the case.
