If nothing else were a problem with Santorum,

this crap would be.

At this point I'm thinking 'Hold our noses and get Obama out of office, then it's third-party time.'

Quote of the Year:
I would vote for a syphilitic camel over Barack Obama in 2012, so therefore I would even vote for Huckabee or Gingrich. But I might try to talk the camel into running one more time.
Glenn Reynolds

I'm in the camel party. Come 2013, it's time to send the GOP the way of the Whigs.

I say it's third party time now.

It's a pretty safe bet the Republicans will hold the house and gain in the Senate this time.

A Republican controlled Congress will reflexively oppose Obama, while it will reflexively support a Republican president, whoever wins the nomination.

Would you rather have Obama with a Congress that will fight him, or Romney (or any of the others, really, except Ron Paul) with a Congress that will support the exact same policies just because he's got an R after his name?

Give Obama his four years when he'll have to fight for everything, and use that time to build for the third-party assault in 2016. Win the battle and lose the war, or surrender the battle for the greater chance to win the war?

I'm hoping for enough tea party pressure, and enough people the tea party helped get into office, to keep the heat on long enough.

And yeah, it worries hell out of me.

Presidents get to appoint judges and agency czars without congressional approval. The czars get to write statute law without having to deal with pesky legislatures by calling it "rules". Appointed judges uphold these rules.

OK the Rep. nominee is likely to be a bit of a squish, but it's normally the legislature that writes the laws he signs.

First get a republican government into office, then start looking to either primary the squishes or run T.P. people against them.
