First of all not one far right candidate with the exception of Ronald Reagan has ever won the Presidency. As it takes the overwhelming charisma and shear popularity of a Ronald Reagan to fend off a hostile media (more hostile now than ever) and his opponent to actually win.
Examples of those who were NOT far right and did well:
Ike...center two term's 52 and 56
Nixon Center two term's 68 and 72
Bush (41) center one term 88
Bush (43) center right two terms 00 and 04
One glaring example of what happens when the republicans run a far right candidate who is not named Ronald Reagan is Barry Goldwater far right (biggest popular vote landslide loss in history)
So when you say we are done running "Doles, McCain's, Romney's.." that means that we are done winning.
Finally, before this is all over Rick (I'm never getting out as it is evil to do so) Santorum will endorse Mitt Romney!
Remember the game I told you about when this all began? Well this is part of it.
