In today’s Politico, conservative stalwart Jim DeMint was quoted as saying, “It would be fun to have a real convention, wouldn’t it?”

I couldn’t agree more. Many point to 1976 and the Ford/Reagan convention as a cautionary tale as Ford went on to lose to the man who will go down in history as the worst American President ever, Jimmy Carter. What they want to gloss over is that, yes, Carter won. And four years later we got Ronald Reagan, a man who will go down as one of the greatest American President’s ever. Will a brokered convention be ugly? Yes. Will it be worth it? Yes.

I think too, the question in peoples’ minds is: Can we survive four more years of Barack Obama? If we hold the House, win the Senate and replace Mitch McConnell and his “leadership” team, then the answer is yes.
