I did. People were willing to toss Akin under the bus in the hopes to salvage the campaign.
That didn’t work very well. Only two of the Senators we had up won, and we’ve got one hanging on in Nevada. We actually lost seats in a democrat heavy senate class.
We need to stick by conservatives who have principles like Akin. When the GOP cut Akin off, they handed Obama the election in spades.
Don’t you think they planned this? They wanted us to hurt ourselves, and the best way to do this is to get the moderates to backstab the conservatives.
And the “conservatives” should try to think before speaking.
I consider myself as a conservative but conservative doesn’t forbid to be clever and smart
