Bret Stephens at the Wall Street Journal says they do:
As for the current GOP field, it's like confronting a terminal diagnosis. There may be an apparent range of treatments: conventional (Romney), experimental (Gingrich), homeopathic (Paul) or prayerful (Santorum). But none will avail you in the end. Just try to exit laughing.
It's not just the current field that Stephens is upset with. Check out the not-so-subtle dig at Mitch Daniels:
Finally, there are the men not in the field: Mitch Daniels, Paul Ryan, Chris Christie, Jeb Bush, Haley Barbour. This was the GOP A-Team, the guys who should have showed up to the first debate but didn't because running for president is hard and the spouses were reluctant. Nothing commends them for it. If this election is as important as they all say it is, they had a duty to step up. Abraham Lincoln did not shy from the contest of 1860 because of Mary Todd. If Mr. Obama wins in November—or, rather, when he does—the failure will lie as heavily on their shoulders as it will with the nominee.
He ends by saying that he hopes within four years the GOP will figure out if it doesn't want to lose, it shouldn't run with losers.
So, is this just a tantrum or is the party this doomed? And what are you going to do about it?
