I’ve been noticing the plethora of negative posts about various candidates and some non-candidates, as well.
The fact is that ALL these candidates have something positive to add to the Republican primary (except maybe, Mitt Romney, who just isn’t reliably conservative). During the primary, it is more important to sell people (independents) on the Republican brand as opposed to Obama, than to sell them on the individual candidate that the Republicans will choose, because eventually, we will make that decision and this time around, I would like to see US make the decision not the press.
The point is, we shouldn’t be making it easier for the press by attacking our own. They all have something to offer and by focusing on what we LIKE about the candidate, instead of what we don’t like, we have an opportunity to push the whole group in that direction. Force Romney to the right, force Cain to the right on abortion, force all of the candidates on free trade and against Obamacare.
“The point is, we shouldnt be making it easier for the press by attacking our own.”
And it’s a damn good point. But the candidates need to stop slitting their own throats with dumb a$$ moves. Were they not hiring Rinos, attacking their base (and not just MB either) this would be far less of a concern. If we don’t hold stupid decisions up for scrutiny, then we get what we deserve.
