Actually, Lugar immediately endorsed Mourdock.
“Actually, Lugar immediately endorsed Mourdock.”
“He has pledged his support to groups whose prime mission is to cleanse the Republican party of those who stray from orthodoxy as they see it,” said Lugar of the GOP opponent who beat him.
“This is not conducive to problem solving and governance. And he will find that unless he modifies his approach, he will achieve little as a legislator. Worse, he will help delay solutions that are totally beyond the capacity of partisan majorities to achieve,” said Lugar.
Lugar, a senior Republican statesman who briefed President Dwight Eisenhower as a young naval officer, offered a shot across the bow to today’s GOP.
He said if Republicans continue to make it difficult for legislators to find compromise, “we will be relegated to minority status. Parties don’t succeed for long if they stop appealing to voters who may disagree with them on some issues.”
That is one HELL of a pee-poor ‘endorsement’!
