Mitt may need a hug

Another one bites the dust. Who's next? Doesn't anyone in the GOP like Mitt Romney?

With New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie opting out of the 2012 Republican presidential race -- and Rick Perry fading faster than the sunlight on a fall evening -- the Grand Old Party is faced with a dilemma.

No one likes the front-runner.
Even though he poses the most legitimate challenge to Barack Obama's second term.

And it's not just the Kamikaze Right that is less than thrilled with Myth. The leaders of the draft Christie movement included some of the grizzled old warriors of the kinder, gentler party. These are people given to agita at the thought of Sarah Palin jumping in.

Yet she seems to be the only frequently mentioned possibility who has yet to join in and flame out.

Of course there's always Jeb Bush.

I think sentiment in the next election is going to get a big boost from the "throw the bums out" crowd. It will be against incumbents from both parties and that will bother Barack more than anything else.
