“The only thing I do understand is Akin getting beat.”
I do too. rove and his honchos pulled ALL of his funding and screeched like cats in heat for him to give up the nomination. He was a true Conservative and did NOT deserve what they did to him.
Im 81, I go back as an active Republican campaigner to before Nixon and then to Goldwater/Reagan .While I have a website Ive been using FRs as my blog. I retired after Reagan won and moved out of state but before that I ran successful campaigns for state and local legislative offices in the1960s to 1983. . In the Reagan campaigns assisted the state chair in developing campaign pieces for Reagans successful bid both in the primary and the general elections where Ive been told by the late John L Waner* some of my stuff is in the Reagan library. The state was Illinois, the city Chicago. If my stuff is there or not I dont know for certain but thats what John told me.* Regional HUD director under Nixon
First of all guys like Rove and others ignored the mechanics of basic campaigning. They allowed the M.ainline S.ocialist M.edia drive the issues and are still doing so they learned nothing from their disasters.I find it inexcuseable for Rove to allow his boss GWB get continuosly trashed without responding.
These people I call them GOPES because it rhymes with dopes right now are falling into the same trap. Limbaugh and Levin, God bless them ...realize that what Limbaugh calls the LIVs (low intelligence voters) actually believe that Obama is offering the proverbial olive branch to Republicans when actually he is proceeding on his path to complete socialism. AND THEY CANT CALL HIM A LIAR .
This administration came up with a policy on energy which had driven up the cost on everything. It was on the tongue of every black, white. yellow,and brown skined person living in the US....IT WENT UNTOUCHED in the 2012 campaign....WORSE YET IT IS STILL GOING UNCHALLANGED
Now the GOPES are buying into the demographic argument offered by the MSM. Here you have an issue staring at them straight in the face affecting every man,woman,and child of every skin color and you cant bring it up and they talk about demographics being pushed by the socialist media .
They should be decrying the philosphy of demographics by stating theyre Americans first not Afro-Americans. not Hispanic-Americans and not-Asian-Americans, or White-Americans. The counter charge should be these are socialist tactics neing pushed by the hypenated Demo-coms. Democrats in socialist/fascist clothing. Let alone not mention the booing of God’s name during their convention then belittle those Republicans who express a religious conviction even to the point of suggesting that those that do shouldn’t run for political office.
Rove and his RINOS are wrong for the Republicans .
