I know

Funny that before i thought Rubio was the only one of the (R)'s that i could sort of be interested in, even though there is still no chance in hell i would vote for him or any (R) this time around.

When i saw his speech at the 2012 convention i was impressed and wondered why the heck Romney didn't choose him for VP.

That i would agree or side with Ted Cruz or Ass Juice on anything is what really frightens me.

I thought the same thing.

Many pundits have said that a lot of Conservative voters stayed home in 2012 because Romney was too much in the moderate wing of the party. I always dismissed that as a myth, thinking a conservative would suck it up, to knock out Obama . . . until I actually met a guy a BBQ this weekend that did exactly that.

The whole 2012 primary season was about finding an Anti-Romney. Perry fizzled, Cain was in the lead for a while, Newt was it for a few weeks, and then Ass Juice.

Speaking of Cain. I still find this one of the most hilarious/genius/bizzare political ads of all-time. The music, the cigarette smoking Chief of Staff, and the 'wait for it' smile.

Only the 9% should be a surprise to anyone in FYM.

As for the anti-Romney's, you forget Bachmann, and also many conservatives desperately wanted Palin to throw her hat in the ring as well. Not sure why....but that's a different topic. But yeah, not only was Romney too moderate but also he wasn't a christian. Therefore supposedly 2 or 4 million conservatives stayed home (i cant remember the exact report). I find that odd since it was the conservatives who kept talking about how Obama was supposedly "destroying our once great republic" and all the other nonsense.

Bachmann never had the pole position once things got going. Very true that many Evangelical Christians view Mormonism as a cult and stayed home. Something the Moneyed GOP Center never understood.

The GOP has a paradox though. It can nominate moderates like Romney and lose because the conservative base isn't energized or it can nominate an extreme conservative like Ted Cruz and lose because they alienated independents and energized the Democratic base. Either way, I can tell you that due to demographics, the GOP will not win in 2016 unless it's discovered that Hillary Clinton is Kang in disguise.

I'd exchange long protein strains with Kang anyday.

People talk about the tyranny of a two party oligopoly (if that's the term) and, they're not wrong, but I think from the outside looking in, America has many parties. It's merely that they are corralled under the big tents of one of two, well, big parties.

If the Christianists walked out on the GOP, they'd never win an election again. Same goes for the Democrats if one of their important wings walked out (I dunno, the unions? the teachers? Matt Damon?).

Seems to me the Greens would do better taking over a critical mass of the Democratic Party.

Totally agreed. And in a continent-disguised-as-a-country where 310m people all live under the president whether in Hawaii or Alaska or Kansas or Manhattan or Phoenix, 2 parties confer a stability and coherence and legitimacy that you would never get if, say, a Green Party were to take the presidency with, say, 22% of the vote.
