This quote more or less describes my own feelings about the Republican field this election and the overall tack the party has taken in recent years. As things run their course, I think we'll be witnessing a metamorphosis, and a split or two, as the GOP conforms to the realities and expectations of the 21st Century. Its only natural. What do you guys think?“I used to be a conservative and I watch these debates and I’m wondering, I don’t think I’ve changed, but it’s a little troubling sometimes when people are appealing to people’s fears and emotion rather than trying to get them to look over the horizon for a broader perspective and that’s kind of where we are,”

Yes, there's something depressing about those candidates who try to out-Conservative each other into sheer irrelevancy.
^^ Some of the Republicans have come off looking so conservative that sometimes they make Barry look good in comparison.
Is Jeb the Crown Prince emergent, the Bush who really should have been President?
The mainstream news media in this country were remarkably successful in driving away the Republican candidates who might have had broader appeal this election cycle. The incumbent is safe for a second term. It isn't the economy, stupid. At least not this time around, which is fortunate for the incumbent.
We in Florida miss Jeb. He's got my vote when he runs. The guy really is a breath of fresh air IMO.
I thought Herman Cain came off as an amateur at best and I could never comprehend, why he was celebrated for his oratory skills.
