tyler — We're not even to South Carolina yet and and it looks like the Republican nomination process is all sewn up.
From what I hear there are still plenty of Republicans that don't think the candidates have been vetted enough or still think there is time to get a real conservative in the game.
But Romney's machine has made the right moves at the right time and unless there is a bombshell, this thing is about over.
Now, don't get mad at me.
My treat presented to you today is that this primary business is about as out of date as a buggy-whip store.
Let's go to the debates. There have been what...316?
I'm kidding, but we seem to see what's important to the network people hosting but never enough on real issues like the economy which is atrocious. The debt which is a killer. Getting soldiers out of harms way or leaving them there.
The first debate feature John King of CNN asking candidates if you were a soft drink, what brand would you be?
Im not kidding, go back and look at the tape.
We found out this weekend George Stephanopoulos transfixed on what states will outlaw birth control.
Well Georgie, last I heard that was not a big issue.
We had Diane Sawyer weepily thanking the candidates families for being at the debates.
Where else where they going to be, a tattoo parlor?
We'll have a Texas primary in the spring, but it's all over by then.
This entire process has to be looked at. Spending time in Iowa and getting a history lesson about new Hampshire-- I don't care.
We need a quicker, more meaningful process.
The media has let us down, so maybe the parties should handle the debates. And the entire election process should take no more than 6 months.
This is not 1935 anymore.
We don't need to have candidates speak at the train station.
That's my point of view, what's yours?
