Mitt Romney is the end result of a once-relevant GOP gone haywire. All of the Republicans who are lamenting their choice of Romney as the party’s standard-bearer have no one to blame but themselves.
In 2010, due to the apathy of Democratic voters, the Republican faithful voted into Congress the rabble known as the Tea Party, which at once held the entire country hostage in order to advance a political agenda bordering on domestic terrorism. As a result, the choices offered in the Republican primary were a collection of escapees from an insane asylum. The party itself is being led by the rants of Rush Limbaugh and dictated by a nobody named Grover Norquist.
The majority of the electorate — those people who actually determine who will lead the country — are moderate and rational. The problem with the new version of the Republican Party is the absence of anyone who possesses moderation or rationality.
Look in the mirror, Republicans. You are your own worst enemies.
