Mitt Romney's campaign for the White House is lurching from one crisis to another as U.S. President Barack Obama pulls ahead of him in public opinion polls, prompting some politicians to muse ... civil war ... Republican party after the Nov. 6 election.

"But I don't think the traditional, moderate Republicans are going to keep quiet any longer. They may not have wanted to provoke any fights during primary season, when a presidency was within reach, but they're anxious about what's happening to the party, and if Romney loses, you'll see organized efforts to take back control."

The Republican Party seems to have been going through a phase of almost self-immolation whereby it has been getting rid of the old style Republican guard like Richard Lugar and others, in favour of the Tea Party zealots, the fanatical, ultra conservatives like Paul Ryan and many, many more. If the Republicans lose the election in November, will they blame Romney? Will they see that their ultra conservative agenda is too much for the American people? Will the Republican party go to 'war' with itself? We'll have to wait and see.

Get out the vote!!!!!

Vote Democratic 2012!!!!! Vote Obama/Biden 2012!!!!!

I hope they take a good hard look at what they stand for and realize that their ideas have been tried and tried, and tried and failed. Doing it again will fail again, and there are more and more people who are finally beginning to understand that. Hopefully, they reassess their ideas and come up into the twenty-first century where the old financial systems are defunct, their systems, and maybe they can understand that Obama is open and willing to work with them for real change that serves everyone, not just the poor, not just the wealthy, but everyone.

The Tea Party take over of the Republican party has made it a parody when political debate is based on Obama being a Kenyan and when Mittens lurch to the right is further than a man who has had his right leg shot off. Hopefully the hyper-partisan rhetoric and destructive obstructionist tactics that come from the Karl Rove & Newt Gingrich book of political engineering. If anything the Tea Party will implode very soon.

The party has gotten extreme. When that happens to any political organization, it is time for that party to die and go the way of the dodo.

That time has come for the GOP.

The republican hasn't gotten extreme AT ALL. That's pure speculation on your part and cannot be supported by any documentation.

The Tea Party is for smaller government and fiscal responsibility. They do not believe in abortion as a method of birth control. or late abortions.

Tell me that's bad. It isn't.

The Rep. party has been taken over by "people" like the Koch Bros, Sheldon Adelson, and others who have combined forces with the Chamber of Commerce, who also has huge foreign investors. They're funneling millions into SuperPAC's and 501(c) tax-exempt non-profits. They are "buying candidates" in every state in the US. These groups were behind the ousting of many progressive members of Congress like Russ Feingold and Alan Grayson in the 2010 elections. They are a group of greedy, power-hungry misogynists who have been called the "American Taliban" by many recently. I just read a very interesting article in The Nation magazine 9/17/12 issue regarding this....sorry I don't have a link.

Breathtaking, Lois, simply breathtaking....that you do not mention that George Soros is Obama's purse strings....why would you not include George Soros in your post? If you think the Koch brothers are a problem then look to who supports Obama with millions and millions of dollars.

Obama wants votes and he doesn't give a flip how he gets them.

I agree with Christopher Fowler for the most part though Speaking for myself I think the GOP should have gone the way of the dodo yrs ago if so we could have been spared the Bush Cheney Imperium and 2 wars.

Diane O - It's my business if I want an abortion or I want birth control not yours but your party wants to limit my options yet your party offers no concrete options to replace what you want to take away. You are for smaller gov except in the case of women, then you want bigger gov. because you want to control every aspect of our lives. You are a woman, how in the world can you go along with their extremist beliefs about women especially when women are the majority sex in America? You really need to think carefully about what your party will do to many Americans should they get control of the WH and the Senate. Once he gets in, he won't need you anymore and he screw you just like he will be screwing the rest of us. Romney has proven time and time again with his stupid comments that he only cares for the rich, the rest us can go to hell. The President has to work for ALL Americans not just rich bastards like the Kochs. I am so annoyed reading these pee party comments that I just made another donation to Obama.
