Same point made when McCain was the candidate. Conservatives should have stayed home in large numbers in the general election. In the primary, they should not support a candidate just because the candidate that truly represents conservative politics is viewed as not electable.
There will be no effect conservative movement until it lays down the gauntlet. That is withholding a vote for the likes of McCain.
So having a Socialist like Obama in the White House is preferable to a RINO?
I’m sorry, but I just don’t follow your logic...
