This had to be the easiest election for the Republicans to win.
The economy sucks and most people forgot it was the Repubs that got us here.
Still at war in the Middle East. Still have Gitmo. Still have killer drones.
Many 2008 Obama voters are disappointed with the lack of hope and change.
A healthcare bill that neither side likes.
Did I mention the economy sucks?
All the Republicans had to do was nominate someone that:
Was not tied to Wall Street after the Wall Street collapse and bailout.
Was not tied to outsourcing jobs.
Was successfull but not a 1%er.
Was able to relate to the middle class.
Was not afraid to be transparent, like providing his tax returns.
Had principles that they stood for......
Surely the Republicans could have found just one person that qualified?
