Ron Paul would have mounted a greater challenge to Obama, but the GOP laughed him off, while the "mainstream" candidates one-upped each other on Iran war rhetoric and religious zealotry.
It drives me crazy. In hindsight knowing they lost anyway, knowing Paul would probably never win a general election either, it still would have been worth it to see him debate and debunk the **** out of Obama on national tv...instead of Romney who basically just rolled over.
