The Republicans are Starting to Lose it... Seriously.

Faced with the reality that their Presidential candidate really is Mitt Romney, the leadership of the Republican Party has started to panic. Now that the GOP primary process has run it's inevitable course, many in the Grand Old Party have had the chance to take a good long look at what they are left with.

That long look revealed that like it or not, the GOP is stuck with a nominee with all the charisma of a bucket of warm spit. Republican National Committee Chairman Reince Preibus, (seriously, that is the guy's real name... ) recently  went on GOPTV (Fox News) to desperately re-frame the debate not as America should elect Mitt Romney, but rather, America needs to fire President Obama,  "for the sake of Liberty and Freedom",  or fish heads,... or  something.

Meanwhile, the Democrats and the Obama Campaign have had the months of the GOP primary circus to prepare for going up against Willard "Mitt" Romney. From Romney's time with outsourcing giant Bain Capital ...

To the former Governor's off shore tax shelters, the Obama Campaign has clearly found their narrative.

The Republican Party is hoping that hundreds of millions of Dollars in unchecked, untraceable super-pac money will convince 51% of the electorate to vote against Barack Obama, since they clearly won't be able to get even the majority of their own base voters excited about the prospect of voting for Mitt Romney.

They key to the strategy  appears to be  keep  Mitt Romney away from  as many reporters  who are not with  Fox News as possible.  When asked by  CBS's  "Face the Nation"  why Governor Romney only goes on FOX News, the Romney Campaign was quick to point out that  Romney doesn't just talk to FOX,  but he recently also  talked to  to schoolchildren....  Wow.

It is going to be  an interesting campaign...  stay tuned kids!
