These odds are courtesy of ehorsex  com.  If Obama waltzes, what happens to the GOP?  I say that Rubio HAS to be the next Republican Presidential candidate.

For right now I'd agree with you 100% on Rubio, people were saying that the RNC even structured his convention speech this year as prep for 2016, but 4 years is a long time.

 I hope it's little boy Rubio... he is more stupid than Robney.

I'll mention this again... After the greatest recession it will be 20 years before any repulsican occupies the White House.

It's sad commentary on the condition of the US that proven abject failure leads almost unmitigated success.

I am leaning to take a little Romney action.

I agree with lordspoint, Bush/Cheney has destroyed the Republican name.  I know of a few Republicans who will never vote Republican again.

Crashdavis is correct, Romney is the best play at +305 right now, we still have some debates, maybe somehow Romney can turn around his sinking ship

i disagree that bush/cheney killed the republican name.  yes, they were a complete disaster by all accounts, but obama is doing many of the same things and working with many of the same corrupt people.  and it looks like he's cruising to a victory here.

what killed the republicans, in my opinion, is catering to the religious wackos to a significant extent, and completely abandoning all sense of fiscal conservatism to a lesser extent.  as to the former, it seems so simple to correct that problem, but republicans are way too dumb to learn simple solutions.  as to the latter, that's not an easy solution but also not their biggest problem.

The current Republicans could learn from Ronald Reagan.  If your tax breaks to the rich hasn't stimulated the economy, raise taxes back to where they were and try stimulating the economy from the bottom up, through public works projects.  The country doesn't go bankrupt and the economy improves.

Grover Norquist, an unelected GOP puppetmaster, has tied the hands of every GOP legislator in Washington.

The Democratic Party isn't well received either.  They have played the class-warfare card very well and will dominate until the GOP recalibrates, if it ever does.

Or will a third party emerge?

I hate to say this but ....
what has killed the Republicans is Romney himself, seriously, this is the best the party has to offer for president?
He is a clusterfuck from the word go.
AND I  am going to vote for him as an anti Obama vote.
I really am hopeful for a third party and a total of changing of the guard in Washington.
We are run by the insurance and oil companies, fellas, we are all just pawns in this big shell game.
You know why you never like a candidate anymore? Because they are both losers and working for the companies and money that truly decide the elections.

I dont if Romney is to blame...

What is it that romney did wrong?

Odds went in his favored when elected as candidate and dropped like rock when ryan was chosen...

Blaming romney is like blaming mccain for losing to obama last time...

I actually think that the reason that people dont like a candidate anymore is that no one really believes in romney...  majority of his voting base would have simply voted for "anyone but obama"

so they didnt even back their own candidate and instead spent all their time trying to find every possible thing to spin negativity about obama... 

net result is that GOP/teaparty is simply just anti-obama and not pro-romney....

his voting base is more comfortable with palin/bachman anyways...  speaks their language and how they think

yeah, i don't think romney is the problem.  he's not a cause, he's a symptom.  before romney, it was santorum, cain, bachmann.  you could go to a nuthouse and pick out people with straitjackets and get better people than those three nutjobs.  that's a serious, serious problem much bigger than lone person.  the republican party is filthy with fiscal liberals and religious crazy.

Romney just does not relate to the average voting Joe.  He's everything, really, that people detest in a political candidate.  He's a plastic poster boy for the big money corporate machine.  Romney bought his party's nomination but he can't and won't buy The Presidency.

Lets hope, with our Keynasian philosophy, that the recession isn't still active after 20 years.

"Romney just does not relate to the average voting Joe"

Maybe its the average Joe, through ignorance, and gullible to the sophistic tongue, that's the problem.

Glendef, I really feel sorry for you Republicans.  If you don't get it together, you'll let the Democrats dominate till they wreck everything by themselves.  You guys should be in there helping them.

Ahhhhh, your attempt to manipulate the average Joes with your right wing extremism explains your engagement in such linguistic diatribes.

Once Obama is reelected, guaranteed to happen:  The right will call their fellow Americans on the left "friggin Idiots".
