Rush made a good point the other day: The candidates that you mention could not bring "big" money to the consultants, therefore, they were not supported by the ... election consultants. IOW, the election consultants are the drivers of the elections. It is not principle but $$$$ that drives the election consultants. Bahstids!
Whether you like Rove or not, he raised and spent $2.5 million for Rand Paul, $5 million for Sharon Angle, $8 million for Ken Buck in Colorado and $6 million for Murdock in Indiana last year.
If Rove doesn’t have a plan to get more electable candidates into office, how is he going to be able to go back to his CONSERVATIVE donors and raise more money?
They don’t give him money just so he can support some conservative patriotic sacrificial lamb in a losing campaign.
I am sure they also want some results.
