Now we know who ‘stupid’ is

As expected, Mitt Romney won the Republican primary in Florida by 14 percentage points. Gingrich did not offer any congratulations to Romney, and vowed to fight on.

At this point, I’m officially losing interest.

    At this point? I feel like it’s been a joke for months. I watched the first six or so debates very closely, but I haven’t seen one since early December. At this point, it’s pretty clear that Romney will be the one who ends up with the nomination. The rest of the candidates may try to make themselves look good as a VP, but the primary is pretty much over.

    I’m just waiting until the general election gets underway. Then I’ll start paying attention again.

    Hopefully Gingrich and Romney will fight to the end damaging each other enough so Obama can keep things positive.

    It’s not just the Republican field that’s embarrasing, it’s the audiences at these debates who turn them into sporting events.

    Speaking of stupid…. Today the head of the Republican Party in Iowa (the one who couldn’t count) resigned.

    If ol’ Bushy and Chaney hadn’t lied to Colin Powell and make him look bad, Colin could have been the next President. As for the Reps. that are trying to buy the nomination now, there is not much substance between the top two. Congress is the one’s we have to worry about, not the President, even though I’m not particularly fond of either side at this point.

    @ Fred. I agree, we should be paying more attention to congressional elections. After all, a president is only as strong as the Congress that supports or stops his policies. This Congress is a prime example. Even if Obama gets a second term (I think he will), if more seats float to the Republican side in either chamber of Congress, the outlook for the government’s effectiveness is going to be even darker.

    Good point. It is interesting that not only did Bush/Cheney/Rove screw the country over, they even screwed over the Republican party by destroying every last decent politician they had — including Colin Powell.
