Flavor of the Month
What a sad state of affairs we have now where Republicans voters jumping all over the place and supporting the flavor of the month for candidates. Originally, Michelle Bachman was the go-to person for the conservatives, and then a month later it was Rick Perry, or Herman Cain. Then the Newt Gingrich, Ron Paul, Mitt Romney and Rick Santorum merry-go-round where each one of them switched who’s on top depending on the state caucus or primary. Sounds like the Republicans have a Baskin-Robbins 32 flavors to choose from.
It seems like Mitt Romney has the best shot of putting on a sustained campaign to actually challenge President Obama because he is closer to the middle than most. It also seems that the entire Republican Party holds its nose every time Mitt Romney is brought up but in the end I predict he will be the candidate. While Romney is vanilla for the base he at least doesn’t carry the baggage others do.
What is unfortunate is that the Republican base cannot coalesce to rally around a single candidate to challenge a weak President. If they ever wanted to make a member of the opposite party a one-term President, this is the opportunity. Regardless of how you feel about both parties, this election has been a circus so far and the fun only is going to continue.
Once again the electorate is going to have to pick the lesser of two evils in my opinion. Is it better to have the devil you know or the devil you don’t? Election day will tell.
