“moving up the national convention at which the nominee is typically selected to June and cutting the number of debates are “not an establishment takeover. This is using your brain. Everything’s not a conspiracy.”
“Without some elaboration this sounds hysterical. Methinks the lady doth protest too much. William Shakespeare”
Well, remembering that in 2000 Rove and a lot of other establishment Republicans were trying to clear the field for Bush, I think the measures Preibus is proposing could certainly help the establishment. An establishment candidate who can raise a lot of money early can already run over lesser funded conservative/base candidates. Shortening the primary season and cutting the number of debates could accentuate that establishment advantage.
Could be a conspiracy.
It’s solid strategy. Trouble is they are doing this to beat conservatives, not dems. Notice they say exactly nothing about abandoning the Romney “Stand there and never press an advantage” mentality that they display every single day of the year in the house/senate.
It smells like Rove is masterminding this debacle. Looks like a RINO, smells like a RINO... it’s a RINO!
My point exactly.
