I see the primaries as a chance to weed out which candidates are a mess, which can't handle the job, which are faking it and which are gonna be awesome leaders.

Do we really want debates where everyone gets cupcake questions from friendly reporters? 



Mitt Romney: GOP Primary Debates Were 'Nuts,' Networks 'Liberals Beating The Heck Out Of Us'

(HuffPo) Romney also said that the networks that hosted the debates were working against the party. He said that next time, the GOP should "agree that we're gonna do, you know, I don't know, eight debates, and we're gonna, we're gonna do one a month, and we're gonna pick stations that are reasonable, it's not all gonna be done by CNN and NBC, alright, I mean we're gonna try and guide this process so that it's designed to showcase the best of our people as opposed to showcasing liberals beating the heck out of us."
Mitt Romney slammed the Republican primary debates, and the media, in the same call to donors in which he made his infamous "gifts" comments.


"We had 20 Republican debates, that was absolutely nuts," he said. "It opened us up to gaffes and to material that could be used against us in the general, and we were fighting these debates for a year, and the incumbent president just sat back and laughed."
 
Romney benefited from the primary debates more than, say, Rick Perry, but the forums became more well-known for elevating the Herman Cains of the party, as well as highlighting primary crowds that booed gay soldiers and applauded executions.

Only if the best choice can beat out the others.  Thing is, Mitt didn't beat out the others.  He simply outlasted them.  He waited while they blew themselves up and crashed back to Earth within a week or two of taking off. 

The GOP candidates were shit this past election.  Mitt would have never come out ahead if other well know GOPers were in the primaries.  Instead we got a circus act.  Cain??? Perry?Huh   Oh boy...
