Divided We Stand
If you watched the Republican YouTube debate, or really any of the debates, you realize how divided the Republican candidates are on many of the issues.
In tonight's debate the immigration issue was especially heated. Giuliani and Romney nearly came to blows, and all of the candidates had different takes on the matter. McCain delivered a moving answer that left me wishing he actually knew how to run a campaign.
The advantage the Dems have had (at least to this point) is their solidarity. They'll say it over and over again even in the debates. "The truth is, the differences among us are minor. The important thing to remember is how different we are from the Republicans."
The Republicans really need to pull their act together and figure out what it means to be Republican. They seem very confused on the matter. That's why most of us are here. We can tell the party is lost and we're looking for another option while the GOPs sort themselves out.
If the GOPs continue to beat each other up in their primary debates, they're going to be sending a very banged-up candidate out to face the Democrats in the general election. I'm not sure that's a wise move.
