Enough 2016 Talk

Who's ready for 2016?

I know I'm not.

With the 2012 general election little more then six months away, and recent polling data showing the candidates in a close race early on, I can't help but be disturbed by Republican commenter's on blogs, forums and websites discussing various possibilities for the 2016 election, especially since we are all supposed to be on the right side.

And that means doing everything within our powers to get Mitt Romney elected to the White House, which means he would be the incumbent in 2016; he would have the Republican nomination in 2016, and we would be fighting for his re-election in 2016. Just as Democrats are doing for Obama now...

... Unless the thought of challenging and replacing Romney is actually in the minds of our comrades.

Which in that case is cause for serious concern, because the last thing we need is activists and voters plotting the subversion of our own party's president before he even has a chance to govern, let alone win the election.

This has got to stop. I don't care if you are unhappy because your favorite person didn't win, did not run or might not be selected for the Vice-Presidency come August, because our nominee is Romney and unless the infection of disloyalty has now entered the Republican mainstream, I'd like to believe we're going to hell and back for our candidate this time and hopefully again next.

So enough of this 2016 bullshit. We have battles to fight today and if we are successful, new lines to defend tomorrow...

What say you?
