I don't like Mitt Romney because of his liberal past. I don't believe for a minute that he is a conservative. His handlers are making him try to appear conservative, but it isn't fooling me. The problem with the Republican party is that the solid conservatives that are in good standing with the party never want to throw their hats in the ring. It is always the Neocons and people that aren't liked by the typical Republicans. Everyone hypes the next election cycle as the one when there are going to be a field of good candidates, but it never happens. I think that if Rand Paul runs in 2016, he will run away with the nomination and generate the most enthusiasm for a Republican candidate that we've seen since Reagan.'
If someone like Coburn or Demint threw their hats in the rings, I think they could generate a lot of enthusiasm as well.
