    Mitt is only more "electable" because everyone else is complete idiot.

    He's a terrible campaigner.

    He's prone to making damaging comments.

    His team is sub-par for this level of the game.

    He has NO charisma.

    He represents DIRECTLY everything 77% of Americans are angry about.

    He's got "enthusiasm issues" within his own party.(This is fixable depending on who his VP is).

    He is without conviction.

    He's 100% beatable. He's not ABLE to fool many. There's just too much easy to broadcast duplicity. He will implode. He'll panic. He'll do something and say something stupid (again) before the primary is over and it will get worse if he makes it to the general.

    But OK rethugs. He's "electable". No, he's the "most electable you've got". That's NOT the same thing.

    I've become re-radicalized. Thanks a lot you bunch of oligarchical fascist sons-of-bitches. But once again, I have no choice. Bring it the fuck on.

      She is Governor of NM, a tea party favorite, grizzly who ran on the unstated "She's Hispanic" and one of ours.

      NM is a majority Hispanic state. We have been majority minority since at least '81 when I came.

      We are only saved from total destruction by a Democratic legislature.

      •  well THAT would be interesting. (0+ / 0-)

        whether the latino population in NM votes for the Mitt ticket despite the GOP's historical position on immigration.

        I think it would be a tremendous risk for him to place her on the ticket. A woman is bad enough. Sarah was OK because she was a whiiiiite woman and sort of hot looking and from the rugged outback (or something). But a LATINO WOMAN in the VP "one heartbeat away" slot?  That'd be REAL stretch for a candidate who the base ALREADY hates and mistrusts.

          bring the Hispanic vote.

          Hey they were willing to put Palin one heartbeat away with the old guy.

      2.  Bain Capital
      3. Privitization of medicare
      4. Anti-immigration (latino)
      5, Not trusted by party base

      Those five are enough to kill him.
