I don't know how to do the trick that links my posts to the source of my information. Sorry. I know that pisses off many of the more educated folks at LPSG. The New York Times recently (4-28-11) reported that the pooh-bahs in the upper echelons of the Republican party have already written off winning the 2012 presidential race. The cost of mounting a successful campaign are expected to cost $1 million. With Haley Barbour's announced decision to not run the old wise men (those with money and influence) are concentrating on the 2016 election instead.
