  •  Maybe warped by his burning need to have a cult? (3+ / 0-)

    Republicans were loud in their support of Romney, sometimes. It never made it seem like they were especially devoted to him, though. They shared an opportunistic eagerness. With the economy still not recovered after the Dubya debacle, Mitt hoped to swoop in and take credit for the hard work President Obama and his supporters have done. Most in the "GOP" saw the Mittser as little more than a tool, a placeholder, even. Grover Norquist said he only needed to be able to sign the legislation spewed by the Congress. It didn't seem to effect Romney's desire to pad his resume.

    Maybe he is a believer, but I never thought he showed anything but the packaging he hoped would make a sale.

      Huntsman never had a chance.   He and Mitt were very similar.  They were both rich Mormons who were born on 3rd base and thought they hit a triple.

      •  But Huntsman is not a true believer (0+ / 0-)

        in the cult. We know him through a person who is VERY close to the family and they are not expecting their own planet.
