With Obama vulnerable on everything from the sagging economy, massive debt, out-of-control spending, nationalized health care and continued joblessness — to his malaise-inducing disconnect with the American public on a wide range of issues that hit households hard on a daily basis — we read about talk of a brokered GOP convention. Without a doubt this is a risky strategy guaranteed to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.
Republicans want the perfect candidate, when in fact one has never existed. Yet we are ready to throw in the towel and consider recruiting a pig-in-a-poke alternative to the candidates who have survived the previous debates — a vital function in preparation for the general election.
