Cruella, save your breath regarding pointing out to these folks that the primary process is one in which real people actually cast ballots to select the Repub candidate.
You see, unless the candidate is able to meet their every conservative standard then they cry foul and for the sake of their required and self avowed “conservative purity” they are content to withhold their support for the only real opponent of the Dem candidate - in this case, Romney. So, while they “moon” the Repub Party for the Repub primary voters “failure” to elect their idea of a suitable candidate, they watch as the likes of Obama, and perhaps soon to be Hillary, be anointed POTUS as a result of Dem voter turnout.
And, as if failure to support his Republican opponent at the ballot box weren’t enough, these guys then come on this site to bitch and moan about Obama and his policies, failures, deception and lies.
My belief is, we probably need a 3rd party - the Conservative Party. But, we do NOT have one.
And, BTW boys - for a right of center individual to go to the polls and write in Mickey Mouse or vote for some obscure candidate with ZERO chance of beating the likes of an Obama or Hillary Clinton is NOT providing real opposition - it plays right into their hand as it’s all about vote count.
