One of the most often-overheard refrains from the Republican Party and its far-right base is that President Obama is the worst president in American history. Others say he "pals around with terrorists." They say he's destroying America.
But what does all of this say about the men and women who are noticeably hesitant to officially announce their candidacies for the Republican nomination? Not a single one of the well-known frontrunners has declared anything more than "exploratory committees" -- quite literally the presidential campaign equivalent of dithering.

I am wondering if it has to do with the fact that potential candidates are trying to figure out how they would clean up the mess Obama is leaving. He hasn't done anything about cleaning up the 'Bush mess', he's just added to it. Unless a Republican candidate can figure out how to pull a rabbit from the hat, I fear that this will be an election that Republicans can't afford to win.
