Is history repeating?

Remember the last time a divided political party thought it would be a good idea to rally behind a guy with with experience as Massachusetts governor, and made him their nominee for President?

It didn't take long for Democrats to realize they'd made a mistake. But too late. They were locked into their nominee.

Right now, it appears many Republicans are leaning in a direction of doing to their party what the Democrats did to theirs in '88.

  1. Why do you ASSUME Dukakis is the reason the DEMs lost? Their Liberal platform was the reason they lost irregardless of which candidate they might have offered.

    Exactly the same opportunity to win, or throw away the election that the GOP has in 2012.

    If the progressives, or you, or ANYONE convinces enough (4%) of "angry" Conservatives to not vote, or vote 3rd Party, or write-in vote, then they will have re-elected Obama. There is no PERFECT GOP candidate, until compared with Obama. All savvy GOP pundits - Palin, Krauthammer, Hannity, Huckabee, Dick Morris, Medved, Bennett, etc., are aware of that?

    The only CHANCE to unseat Obama in 2012 is to vote, and vote for the GOP primary winner - WHOEVER that person is. To propose anything else is to propose the re-election of Obama.
