Does anyone really think Romney has a shot? Frankly, is that really a great idea?

I don't know. I don't care for Romney and I'm not a huge fan of Obama. I think the Republican party is just a sincere joke at this point. I would have really liked to see a strong candidate go against Obama because I don't think Romney has any chance at unseating him.

Was Rick Perry, Michelle Bachman, Newt Gingrich, Rick Santorum, Mitt Romney, Herman Cain, Ron Paul, and John Huntsman really the only candidates they could come up with?

Rick Perry - bat shit crazy religious zealout.
Michelle Bachman - bat shit crazy over-emotional woman.
Newt Gingrich - womanizer, smart guy, hasn't been involved in politics for the better part of a decade.
Mitt Romney - massive flip-flopper, not really a republican, out of touch with reality, good businessman.
Rick Santorum - religious zealout, hypocrite, wasn't even a good congressman.
John Huntsman - who? Such a small blip on the screen.
Hermain Cain - womanizer, too many skeletons in the closet, obvious superficial pitch to minorities.
Ron Paul - probably the best foreign policy & deficit ideals, old as dirt, really polarizing social agenda.
