That sucking sound you hear is the GOP leadership vacuum created by RomneyFail

The Republican party is in disarray, or as I like to call it, imploding. When Willard M. Romney lost the election to President Obama, he promised to remain "a strong voice for the party," something he vowed at his final meeting with campaign staffers at his Boston headquarters.

He wasn't even a strong voice during his own campaign. So much for yet another empty proMitts:

(AP) -- He has quietly weathered the fallout of the campaign from the seclusion of his Southern California home, emerging only momentarily for a private lunch at the White House with President Barack Obama on Thursday.

His loss and immediate withdrawal from politics, while welcomed by most, has created a leadership vacuum within his party. It's left the GOP rudderless, lacking an overarching agenda and mired in infighting, with competing visions for the way ahead, during what may be the most important policy debate in a generation.

The GOP is a leaderless party whose presidential candidate-- the one they swore by only weeks ago-- doesn't belong any more, and true to form, has lied once again.

Some "strong voice."

He's made no public comments about China, taxes, Medicare, immigration, his meeting with the president, and so forth, and so on, etc., etc. Nada. Zilch. Zero. Zip.

He's fading faster than his Just for Men hair color.

So what's he doing now? Funny you should ask:

The former businessman is subletting office space at the Boston-area venture capital firm, Solamere Capital, which was founded by his oldest son. Former aides expect Romney to stay out of the spotlight for the foreseeable future - spending colder months at his California home and warmer months at his New Hampshire lake house.

Gotta keep those car elevators warm. Let's hope he doesn't bring any family dogs along on his schleps between mansions.

House GOP Leaders to Lunch With President Obama

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

What was that about President Obama not reaching out to the GOP again? Yeah, I thought so.

President Barack Obama has invited House Republican leaders to the White House for lunch Wednesday, just as the House prepares to take up the first major spending bill of the 112th Congress.

This is a surefire way to ensure weight loss: Invite a Republican to lunch, lose your appetite. Guaranteed.

I wonder how many of the invited Congress members will turn him down.

Missing from GOP.com: Future

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare


Seems self evident to me.

This is, a youngish Republican points out to me this morning, a bit of an unfortunate place for an empty page on the Republican National Committee's nifty new website.

That would be the "Future Leaders" page.
