Not an endorsement, but food for thought
“Not an endorsement, but food for thought”
That won’t be well received here! But I agree, it is something to consider. The Democrats have the luxury of not worrying about their candidates because their “brand” is so strong right now.
It’s a fact for either party, the candidates farther to each extreme do well in primaries, and not as well in the general elections. As distasteful as it may be, it’s all about winning elections.
Liberals beat us by playing the long game. The playbook is open and easy to read. We can implement that playbook, or we can whine and cry as our elected officials become more and more leftist.
Thanks...HA—HA, not looking for a lynching today ? :)
I saw one freeper who last night entered a Tokyo Rove thread posting :”At least Rove doesnt support idiots like....” with similar followup comments .
it was pretty funny/fun to read his and the responses.
from post “ Suspicions about establishment Republicans are well-founded, but Rove has a point, as well. Purely as a tactical matter, why not weed out inept or insane candidates before they start spouting off about a womans organic ability to prevent pregnancy when raped? Im no Sun Tzu, but winning elections seems to be a crucial part of politics. And if being right were enough, Id be buying my lunch with a $20 bill featuring former two-term president Barry Goldwater.
Law says that Republicans have blown a significant number of races because candidates prone to the chillingly bizarre have won GOP primaries before falling to Democrats”
I was down of Rove when it seemed like most here were posting “GWB kept us safe” and used to try to beat up on me for dissing their legacy.
The above is a valid point about those nutbags, however pointing out that Romney was crappy candidate was a valid point too esp with his 47% comment to get rich donors $$$$(many who hate Romney are not critical of that though) , and Rove had his losers too.
The GOP seems such a mess now with one side wants to beat Dems at any cost which regularly backfires, and the other just seems to want to lose to Dems (most wont say that though but I have caught a few) still defending the nutbags who blew easy races, so I plan on watching this fight play out and judging later. I have little faith in either.
