    I think you should procrastinate till Nov 8th. None is clearly any worth in Republicans and their ideology....true. They do not have any kind of substantial agenda, their agenda is to Ship Jobs to China....Bain-Capital.

    Sure Prince Reibus, draw it out even longer so we can all see the GOP's disapproval numbers go further into record territory.

    Does Prince Reebus think that 4 people attacking the president and each other while spending millions of dollars is good?

    Mr. Chair can confabulate away, however he wants. The People aren't listening to him. The People are listening to the candidates as the expose themselves for what they really are.

    Hey Reince Twice Then Spit, here's the GOP's problem in a nutshell:
    FAMILIARITY BREEDS CONTEMPT.

    He has to say that because everyone can see they have no candidate. 12million to 1 and barely wins.

  11. The REAL Truth

    The longer the circus continues, the better chance Obama has for a 2nd term. The GOP are shooting themselves in the foot. I'm [generally] conservative (believe it or not) but the GOP no longer represents the average conservative. They have become the "fringe" party, catering to extremist views like those of Santorum and the Teapots.
    I'm all for less taxes and smaller govt. I'm not for invasion of privacy (the GOP passed Patriot Act), TWO unnecessary wars (with 6,000+ dead US troops and 100's of 1,000's of innocent "collateral damages"), nor huge increases to the deficit (Reagan, Bush, Bush2) and larger Fed Govt (Reagan, Bush, Bush2).
    So, the longer the GOP continues this fiasco, the less chance they have in Nov.

    Ummm...Preibus can say whatever he wants, but I don't think even HE believes that the primaries have not been bad for the GOP. The more people find out about what the GOP stands for, the more people do not want to vote for Republicans.
