If they had stood up for themselves and (with Bush and McCain) against the Dems Fannie May and Freddie Mac fiascoes, the MSM would have trashed them, but the MSM did that anyway. At least by making a stand, they would have given more people a reason to vote for them, as opposed to against the Democrats.
It not just that specific event......it’s EVERYTHING. That’s is just more of the same ‘ol same ‘ol from the RINO party..... There hasn’t been a REAL conservative in the WH since Reagan.
