Enough Already

The votes hadn’t even been counted when Florida’s junior Senator, Marco Rubio scheduled a trip to Iowa next week.

The political parties have a rule that if you schedule a primary earlier than the rules allow, you lose at least half your delegates. They should expand the rule to say that if you start campaigning for President more than two years before the election, you lose half of your delegates.

Marco Rubio can’t ‘save’ the Republican Party. It is the policies and platform of the Party that caused some Cuban voters to go for Zero, not the ethnicity of the candidate, and if Rubio couldn’t even deliver the entire Cuban community for the Republican Party, how is he going to convince the rest of the Spanish-speaking voters?

The GOP problem is their policies, not the people they run for office.

I honestly think Christie will be the one who brings the Republican party back from the brink of irrelevance. Not that I am a fan. But his reaction after Sandy tells me he just might be what will draw others away from the fever swamp of extreme right fanaticism at which most of his party resides.

The teapartiers control too many state party organizations for anyone who is sane to get nominated. The real test will be 2014 Congressional elections – if the Republicans lose the House by running with their whackoes, then they will realize that they have to change. Without that, their next candidate will be even more insane than Rmoney.
