I said many threads ago this guy would turn out to be a disappointment. He is just too contrived a character. He will fall apart in the debates. I have also been reading that his wife is making a total disaster of his campaign.
The GOP has one real candidate - Guiliani. He is the only one that is a credible alternative to Bush with the electorate -McCain stupidly pissed away that mantle- and the only one raising vast sums of money from the traditional GOP funding base, and the only one who can mount a really challenge to Hillary for the swing voters. Romney has flip flopped so much he is going to dissipate over time. Who is left? This intellectual lightweight? I don't even think he is that good an actor.
Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
-President Barack Obama, 1st Inaugural address
