She won’t change… That is essentially it. The darling of the Tea Party after the Democratic landslide, she kept her voice.

It is one thing to say outrageous things when you are trying desperately to keep a fire alive. It is another, to say outrageous things, when you are running for the most powerful position on the planet…..

The resignations that are coming at a quick pace now, are only cascading now because when they were first raised, she dismissed them. They couldn’t do that to her; it didn’t fit into her plan.

It is highly likely that her campaign is finished. Just today’s shots of her, show her disoriented, slightly unkempt, almost like she’d just come down off Xanex…

Not what I’d want running the country during a crises….

There is a reason she has no funding.

Her website has no meat, only fluff. Her one on ones are devoted to her insistence that Barack Obama be a one term president. .. When you ask her what she’d do, she repeats all of Dick Cheney’s lines from 2000…. Reminds me of Wendell Wilkie running against Roosevelt.

Those lines are old. Those lines are not working. Those lines are in today’s world, more unbelievable than they were in 2000. Those lines fooled us in 2000. They hopefully fool no one eleven years later…

She had one option to turn it around. She lacked the breadth to see herself in a historical light, and turned down that one chance…

That chance was to capture that silent majority of the American Republican Party… but dissing the extremists who once were her most strident supporters… They’ve left, not because she’s not conservative enough… but because other candidates are making more sense…

When all America is hurting, and we are losing government jobs more than the private economy is creating them… to argue to triple the number of people put out of work, is if not insane, at least in bad taste…

How can she change her luck? By being the first Republican candidate to accept the notion that we must increase revenue. That means raise taxes. Every Republican not running, knows we need to raise taxes. It just is. It is obvious. It is necessary, and it probably won’t hurt, it could even help the economy. We need to raise taxes…

When this was explained to her, by some of her innermost supporters, it was obvious she had no intention of running to win. It is obvious she was doing this for herself, and a handful of benefactors to whom she was bonded with bounds tighter than reality….

As word of this got out, all smart staffers began shuffling off the shift….

Including this one. Figuring on her mid-western common sense winning the day, I had predicted a comeback. Turns out, after seeing things up close, it is a one man operation that has no chance at success…

Which is sad. Her position on the intelligence committee, and the finance committee, would have been a wonderful springboard to bring American values to the forefront, and disassociate herself from the crap that both major parties carry with them…

There are millions looking for a rational alternative to the current President. The Republican who accepts that the wealthy must be taxed more, is the one, who would walk away with the nomination…

It is not corporations or think tanks or radio hosts, or Fox News that votes.. It is Americans.

Her ship is now dead in the water with no sails; pretty soon, her ammunition will dry up too….

And on Thursday, she had the world placed in her hand, and she shoo’d it away.
