Borger: Newt and Mitt: Two guys with issues

Editor's note: Gloria Borger is CNN's chief political analyst, appearing regularly on shows such as "AC360˚" "The Situation Room," "John King USA" and "State of the Union."

(CNN) - So after all of this drama in the Republican race, we have two major candidates with some very basic questions left unanswered: For Mitt Romney, it's the most basic query of all - "Who am I?" (Moderate or conservative? Warm or cold? Very rich or very, very rich?) As for Newt Gingrich, he's got to explain to voters that "I'm-not-who-you-think-I-am." (And then behaves as the angry, unpredictable man they think he is.)

    There's no big difference between the frontrunners. One just happens to be a bigger flip flopper than the other.

    The GOP clown show has issues, but so does the group of morons who support them. Right wingnuts are upset that Clint Eastwood made a positive commercial about the auto industry, and seem to think that any good news about our economy is bad. I remember when the right wingnuts cheered when Chicago lost its bid for the olympics, about executing prisoners, and how they booed a gay soldier, people without insurance, minorities, and poor people in general. Republicans are a lost cause.

    I think both men are representative of the Republican Party and conservatism as a whole. Their is an ideological shift taking place on the right. It would seem that electing Barack Obama caused 9.5 Richter scale earthquake on the right. We are now seeing the extreme right laying the blame at the feet of those close to the center. Meanwhile, the rest of us of suffer from the sealousness.
