The Laughable Right

The arrogance coming from the right wing is in all its glory now that there are four candidates remaining to go up against Barack Obama in November. Really though, you can throw Ron Paul and Rick Santorum out at this point and think in terms of Newt Gingrich and Mitt Romney--two incredibly wacky and strange dudes.

Newt has a temper and bitterness that is already getting in his way, especially with those in his own party. Especially with those who worked with him in Congress 15 or so years ago. Mitt is a noted flip-flopper who will do and say what those who will support him want to hear at any given time. Yikes. And these two are going at it in the debates right now. Oh, and the GOP hates Romney too. They are literally stuck between a rock and a hard place now.

The other problem for the right is that Obama is having so much success, and has these last few months. And now that Obama is going after the big banks and Wall Street, he's striking a chord with his base and with those who are undecided right now. The dude is just whipping his detractors in the GOP and he's doing it now with a bitch-slapping, take-no-prisoners approach.

And so the right, while they surely can't be counted out with Citizens United giving them the opportunity to collect gajillions of dollars for campaign ads, are really up against a tough opponent who will in all likelihood have a second term in the White House.
