    Doesn't have to be. It's as if he was trying to lose..that was my point. He wasn't the ultra conservative Republican...but shifted there for support and contributions....only to veer back to the moderate middle to appeal to fence sitters/undecideds. Not the candidate that alot of sincere people wanted. Look back to his entry to the RNC after he won the nomination and the half-hearted polite applause by those in attendance. That should have sent a message. What about a conspiracy that had the outcome planned in advance? And everything after M.R. won the nomination was grandstanding to satisfy everyone that the election process was in progress and that they would have a real choice in the matter.

    Do you think a hardcore conservative like Newt or Santorum would have had a more successful campaign?

    No. After the wheels come off due to the inevitable failure of progressivism, maybe.

    I agree.

    Having said that, I may have been a little naive in thinking we might have already been at this point, but I was wrong.
