Early in the GOP presidential campaign I was holding on to hope that the country, or at least conservatives, had learned something from the drubbing we got in the 2008 election.
But once again, the GOP appears poised to nominate the worst of the worst as its candidate and to hand Obama the keys to the White House for another four years. Meanwhile, real conservatives are watching from the sidelines.
Newt Gingrich, who is staying in the race, admitted Friday at a Wisconsin campaign stop that Mitt Romney is beating the pants off of him.
“I think Mitt Romney is clearly the front-runner,” Gingrich said according to Fox News. “I think he will probably get 1,144 (delegates), but I think he has to earn it.”
The media had picked Romney early on as their favorite for the GOP, because he was “middle of the road,” which is doublespeak for “liberal.”
But as the primaries are a numbers game leading up to the convention, there was still the possibility that the conservative outrage over Obama might yet bear fruit.
