Being blinded by ambition and the need to please one’s case is not exclusively a republican problem. I have watched the Democrats fall into the same exact trap. Right now it seems that the grand old party is in quicksand. One by one their nominations turn out to be flawed in so many respects that you wonder who did the vetting. Well the vetting was done by a White House that’s incompetent and 12 years ago we had the same issues. I know everybody looks back to W with nostalgia. I wonder how much Nostalgia those who lost loved ones in unnecessary wars have for his presidency. So yes, the Republicans have had a terrible run the last 16 years and I hope that they will find their way and understand that they need to be a party that opens its doors to everyone. The Democrats in the 60s were the Republicans of today and the Democrats found a way to fix themselves. I hope the Republicans will do the same for the sake of our country.
