Adelson started out backing more conservative candidates and then switched to Gov. Romney only after Gingrich fell out of the race. Romney was not Adelson’s favorite candidate but Adelson did back him, including significant tangible ($) help, when Romney won the nomination.
I’m never going to get 100 percent of what I want in candidates. All in all, I am very tankful to Mr. Adelson for his hard work and generous support in supporting Republican candidates trying to dislodge HusseinO.
Many of us are still smarting from the election loss. Maybe if we can avoid being too harsh in our criticisms of the Republican candidates or the people who stepped up to the plate and backed them (like Adelson), we can regroup and form a more successful campaign next time. Which is something we need to start doing right NOW, in my humble opinion. First priority: making sure Reagan’s 11th Commandment is honored so people seeking the R nomination don’t form a “circular firing squad” as they did in 2012. That’s what caused the R party to lose, not Adelson. Let’s lighten up on Adelson and others who helped us, ok? He did a whole lot more to try to help us than most of the folks you and I meet or speak with (or even many of us who are posting here today?) Thanks

We had 16 known candidates. only 3 of them were lifelong Conservative Republicans. All the rest of them had some affiliation with another political party, or two!

There was no need for a circular firing squad if we'd had standards in place to keep the top of the ticket nomination in the hands of lifelong Republicans!
