Maybe not - but we can certainly blame the "base" for sitting out the 2006 election and allowing the dems to seize control of Congress and putting Nazi Lugosi 2nd in line for the White House.
It's up to the Party to give the people a reason to come out and vote FOR them--aside from "Boo! The Democrats!" When the party fails to uphold the principles that got them into power in the first place, they should expect to lose.
I expected them to lose as early as January 2004 when Arlen Specter was crowing about how he was going to "moderate" the GOP as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee. From that point on, they've done few things to placate the base and MANY things to irritate the base further. I'm convinced we need a wholesale leadership change at RNC.
Newt for RNC Chair!!!

( Rudy McRomney as the GOP nominee = President Hillary. Why else do you think the media loves them?)

That ought to be enough - if you don't think so then you have no right to complain about what the democrats do (which will be to destroy our nation).
Anyone who had a hand in allowing the dems to take control and do that is to blame - using the excuse that the GOP is not far enough right is not a valid reason to hand the fate of the country over to the treasonous democrats.
Which would you rather have - someone in power who agrees with 60% of what you believe in or someone in power who agrees with 5% of what you believe in?
