Only meteorologists can be as wrong as some of these guys and still keep their jobs. It makes me wonder just how wrong they are with their Middle East predictions.

This has been covered many times but this is a pretty good overall gathering of the information and I do have to chuckle...

“Donald Trump will not be the nominee. Ultimately our nominee will come from the mainstream conservative bracket. I don’t know who that will be.” Mitt Romney, Georgetown University’s McDonough School of Business 9/30/15.

There was no mainstream conservative bracket. Romney is unable to tell the difference in Conservatism and corporatism. It's a good part of the reason he lost.
