Contender Saturation Point

Has the modern American Right worked itself into such a frenzy over finding anyone to defeat Obama in the upcoming 2012 election cycle that they have already been defeated themselves?

That was my first thought after watching this?

And the Right are clearly not pleased when their overzealous nature in regards to "trumping" Obama's ability at a second term.

Just think about the names that are already in the contender pool: Palin, Bachman, Huckabee, Romney, Santorum, Gingrich, Paul, and Trump. Not one of them has the solid credentials that the modern American Right claim are required, save perhaps Romney. And as far as Trump is concerned, he's more of a "self-promoter" and is likely doing this simply to boost his own visibility.

This is the problematic nature of the Right's 2012 narrative - favoring the gimmick, the rhetoric, over solid policy for the country. It seems that with every news cycle, the current situation in Egypt for example, the Right is more concerned with speaking about how Obama is failing at handling it, while not offering examples of how it should be handled.

Make no mistake, the 2012 election cycle is now in full swing, and it's already getting quite interesting.

EXIT QUESTION: After Ron Paul swept the CPAC straw poll last year, and Fox"News" doing their best to spin it as a fluke, or that the Paulbots rigged the results, who do you think will win this year. Certainly not Palin, as this is the third year in a row she snubbed the convention.
