    "Bum of the Month" is how Congressman Barney Frank (a Democrat from the Boston area) described the Republican successive choices of contenders against Mitt Romney, a less-than-fanatic believers in today's Republican dogmas such as no taxes etc. Every few weeks another "savior" is spotted by that party, after the previous one fails to excite. The previous "savior" was Gingrich and the newest one seems to be Santorum. All this may mean is that Romney will win the Republican nomination but lose the general elections because most Republicans don't like him and will not vote for him (nor for Obama). The lesson for Netanyahu: The Republican party of the US has gone completely mad. In the face of extremely large deficits they vote for ideology, not common sense. Chances are, this party may be headed either for complete overhaul once they learn their lesson, or headed towards the ash hip of history. In either case, one cannot rely on these crazies. Use your own brain, Nutty Yahoo, you have nobody to rely on in Washington.
