    as unprepared to be pres as romney is he was probably the least strident of all the gop candidates, the gop has gone so far over the cliff they have america saying nixon was a liberal compared to these far right thinking politicians, nixon a liberal, that says all you need to know about todays gopers posing as civilized human beings.

      sat this election out -- leaving those who were lunatic fringe approved, or those like Romney who actively sought that approval.

      I may disagree with Jeb Bush's politics vehemently, but I think he's learned enough from his brother's screw-ups to be a calmer head in crisis. Same with Jon Huntsman. But both of them would make zero headway with the contingent that currently makes up the GOP base -- Jeb because he's married to one of those "brown people", Huntsman because he's actually got a brain and can be reasonable on some issues like climate change. (He also worked for Obama, which probably makes him a traitor in some circles.)
