Still hope for a dark horse to lead the GOP

There are 20 comments on the www.cbsnews.com story from Dec 12, 2011, titled Still hope for a dark horse to lead the GOP. In it, www.cbsnews.com reports that:

Must Republicans choose either Newt Gingrich or Mitt Romney for their presidential nominee? A wildly imaginative political junkie might say, "Maybe not." In an essay for Sabato's Crystal Ball, senior columnist Rhodes Cook observes that the first four contests -- Iowa, New Hampshire, South Carolina, and Florida -- will bind only 115 delegates, out of 2,282 total. In fact, "heading into Super Tuesday [March 6], only 15 percent of the GOP delegates will have been chosen," he notes. To win the nomination, a candidate needs a majority, or 1,142 delegates, and it's possible that states with later primaries won't follow their early cousins' lead. For a dark horse to triumph, however, he or she has two options: Either win enough delegates in the run-up to the convention, or emerge victorious from a brokered convention.

Choosing between Democrat and Republican polluticians is like choosing between syphilis and gonorrhea. Still, it's comical to read arguments in blogs, forums and chat rooms that are tantamount to "My venereal disease is better than your venereal disease!!"

Maybe, but Republican venereal diseases are often fatal.

My bad!

Have you seen the recent polling which shows Obama beating both Romney & Gingrich in South Carolina? South Carolina! Now I don't take much stock in polling, and certainly not this far out from the election, but OMG this is SOUTH CAROLINA!! If polling there doesn't show the Republican beating Obama by 10-20 points then something is SERIOUSLY wrong with the GOP candidates!!!

Maybe they discovered that Romney and Gingrich beat their wives.
Nope, that still wouldn't explain it.

I know it's unlikely, but after all their "anyone can beat Obama" rhetoric, could you imagine the reaction from the conservatives if Obama wins in South Carolina? I think their heads would literally explode!

Well, if Chris Christie comes back onto the national stage during a brokered convention it will collapse....

Well said, I would even extend it to the democrats as well, forget what they say, there is just not that much difference in what they will end up doing. But you don't have to look far to find someone different. Ron Paul is the only candidate with a plan to cut the budget in a meaningful way which by the way is the biggest problem we are facing bar none. Other than Paul not one candidate has a serious plan for cutting the budget.

Gonorrhea is treatable. Romneyitis is fatal.
