You don’t win elections by cleaning up the mess too soon. A gullible public must be burned twice to not trust the match a third time.
And thanks to their party over principle theatrics, they won’t win the next one either. Sure, they will run an ever more liberal GOP wonderboy like Christie or Rubio...then wonder why they lost.
Except for the fact that they don’t want to win to begin with. One bird, two wings.
