Here's my Romney theory: The Republicans figure they cannot defeat an incumbent POTUS. They think they have a much better chance in '16 winning with one of the young guns like Ryan. So, they nominate the biggest clown they can find. Then, just to be sure he will lose, they feed him stupid juice 24/7. This is similar to the MPT (McCainPalin Theory). Lo and behold, the once moderate Massachusetts governor becomes a complete buffoon. Not just a 47% buffoon, but a full 100% one. One that not even his own party can any longer stomach, thereby assuring that the Tea Party will become the basis of the nomination in 2016.
