    Or are you referring to the Republicans still wishing they had Reagan.... Though Reagan is way too the Left for these bozos, heck, Obama is to the Right of Reagan.

    -6.13 -4.4 Where are you? Take the Test!!!

    •  Romney is probably as 'Superstar" of a (0+ / 0-)

      candidate as the Republican party is going to get.

      •  If Willard is a GOP Superstar, that ain't saying (1+ / 0-)

        much. I think someone who had the exact same record as WM Romney probably would not have been such a colossal fuck-up and actually made this a real race. This was an artificially close race. That being said, no such GOP candidate exists in real life. They all suck which is why WMR won their nomination. And I don't think 2016 is much better: Jindal, Barber, McDonnell, Huckabee, Palin, Allan West, Thune, or Generic Republican TM are all terrible.

        The fact is 2016 is not so far off. Right now, I'm liking Martin O'Malley. He has executive experience as mayor and governor. He is good looking and articulate and was an excellent surrogate for the campaign. If Hillary Clinton does not run, and she has said she wouldn't, watch O'Malley.

          Jindal
          has already looked stupid in public, but voters forget quickly.

          Barber
          zzz

          McDonnell
          who? (so, yes)

          Huckabee
          overripe

          Palin
          Mitt Romney fail, the wackier prequel.

          Allan West
          i don't think voters will forget (since they will be reminded) that he's a literally raving loony.

          Thune
          yes

          Generic Republican TM
          (besides Barber, McDonnell and Thune)
          yes

          -- the people are the leaders

    •  "like Reagan" was Romney's tacit pitch (0+ / 0-)

      early on.  Nice suits, nice hair, talks tough about some or other.
