Hello again, FRiend. Can it be established that the RNC offered anything like substantial financial support to Mourdock in Indiana? And Akins in Missouri was excoriated and abandoned for his mistake -- it was the voters, not the Party, who rallied around him.
I realize there was a problem with 'Rat crossovers and secret Trojan support from Claire McCaskill during the Missouri nomination contest (someone explained that McCaskill is basically Satan), but once nominated, he certainly didn't attract support from the Party, especially after he misspoke.
I don’t know how much support the RNC gave. But if you want to throw out the guy who’s held the seat for us for forty years you’ve got to make sure you don’t blow it. I don’t have much patience with people who make a big deal about throwing out the RINOs or Establishment only to lose a safe seat through ineptitude. The trick is not get caught up in one’s own “opinions” about things but to discuss things you can actually do in office.
