I distinctly remember some GOP insiders beginning to bash the McCain campaign right around this point of the 2008 race.
That’s right. Include bashing of McCain and Palin. This time I at least haven’t heard any “insider” bashing of either Romney or Ryan. That to me is a big difference.
I remember McCain’s staff beginning to bash Sarah Palin at this point in 2008. There was no surer sign of impending defeat as Nicolle Wallace and the Lex Luther looking guy (can’t recall his name) attempted to save their own careers by blaming Palin.
