The GOP consists only of winners, or people who believe they are winners.

Therefore Mitt Romney cannot be and never was a a Republican.

We have always been at war with Eastasia

Was he ever really held in esteem by the GOP in the first place?

He had his 15 minutes

Romney was at best a transitional, situational candidate for the GOPteabag party. He was neither a tie to the party's past or a well known spokesman for its present and future. Nor was he a media Republican, like McCain. He was someone the party thought could win the election--perhaps the only one of its announced candidates they thought could. And he'd run the cycle before and finished runner-up, so he was next in line. Who's next in line now? Will they reach back to the past again and put forward Jeb Bush? Jim DeMint seems like someone pretty representative of the "new", southern-based GOP. Or Kansas gov Brownback (sp), who didn't make much of an impression his first time but who now with some gubernatorial experience might make more of a splash. He seems like a True Believer. Either way, 2016 will be crazier than 2012.

re: #4 Bulworth

Mitt Romney is best, I propose, an example of the old maxim that "money opens doors". The doors of the Republican party swung wide open for him.

He has also successfully proven that "money can't buy you love".

Then came a series of tin-eared remarks this week blaming his loss on Obama’s “gifts” to African Americans and Hispanics — putting him squarely at odds with party leaders struggling to build bridges with minorities.

The GOP struggling to build bridges with minorities? Since when?! Oh sure. They're doing it now, after they got their butts kicked. They lost congressional seats, and would've lost the HoR outright if it weren't for Gerrymandering.

White "non-racist" reactionaries have made their last grasp for relevance and got bitch-smacked down. The faux free-market Norquisitor(tm) oligarchs will be the next to fall.
