While Newt Gingrich was basking in the limelight of his primary win in South Carolina, I was at a party where most of the folks appeared to be right-leaning moderates waiting anxiously for a new president to be elected in the Fall.
Thus it was notable when someone in the crowd stated rather confidently that President Obama was going to be re-elected.
The short and polite discussion that followed focused primarily on the lack of a viable GOP candidate who could defeat a sitting President in a general election.
The situation reminded me of John Kerry, the weak, mannequin-like non-opponent that the Democrats served up to try and defeat President Bush in 2004.
With Gingrich defeating Romney by nearly 13 points in SC, and all three front-runners (Gingrich, Romney and Santorum) currently unable to beat Obama in November, what’s a card-carrying member of the GOP to do?
Will Obama get his second term?
