Sadly, it appears that the Republican presidential candidates are preparing the way for the re-election of President Obama with their self-destructive accusations against each other. Self gratification and ego overrule the need to present a viable opposition to the Obama legacy of bigger and bigger government, greater dependency upon the federal government and usurpation of state's rights.

Rather than unifying the party, these candidates are driving greater and deeper divisions to the point that Obama will have a cakewalk to re-election.
