  •  Well, they tried that in 2000 with George W Bush (1+ / 0-)

    and the whole likeable "compassionate conservative" schtick.

    But not sure if that will work again now that we're on to it.

    I'm thinking if the economy bounces back, there's no way any reputable Repub (yeah, do any exist?) is going to want to touch the 2016 GOP presidential nomination with the proverbial 10 foot pole.

    Leaving it firmly in the realm of the RW nutters.

    If the economy continues to flounder, however, all bets are off - I suspect that the "low information" voters' patience will have run thin by then.

      Somehow I dont think we are going to see President Bush the Younger at the RNC any time soon.  Of course it took a full cycle before we really brought Big Dog back so time will tell.  

      Funny now that I think about it , outside of Reagan Republicans dont really have any past Presidents or even candidates that they like having around.  Compare that to the DNC in Charlotte where we had Bill Clinton, Jimmy Carter (video) and John Kerry.  You had better believe Hillary would have had a keynote if she had been in a different job.  

      It is well that war is so terrible -- lest we should grow too fond of it. Robert E. Lee
