"Mitt Romney? A LEADER of the GOP? That's the best laugh I've had since 1919."
The Associated Press sez: "Mitt Romney's loss creates GOP leadership vacuum."
This sock-puppet was forced upon the party by the real GOP leadership who were frightened of the prospect of a Tea Party-backed candidate. They got, in return, exactly what they did with Bob Dole and John McCain and what they deserved with Dubya in 2000. But don't try to sell me on the notion that Romney was some sort of principled political LEADER. He was an opportunist who had his head handed to him by an opponent who should have been easily beaten. So much for Karl Rove and his gang's reputed "political savvy."
