Too many people think that this is a debate club and forget that the goal is to win elections. People in politics (the GOP-e, as they are referred to around here) understand that. How do you win elections? You build coalitions, and you do that by having a big tent. When GOPers are trying to build that winning coalition, there are people here screaming about RINOs and GOP-e and sell outs and Lord knows what else.
Those people don’t get it. Those people believe that this is debate club. Buckley was right: you vote for the most conservative person that can win. Some people here still don’t get that.
Say what you like. I won't vote for Romney, in the misplaced hope that the GOP can be persuaded later to please move a little bit to the right.
They can pound sand. Besides, every time they put up a liberal go-along-to-get-along type, they lose.
Bla, bla, bla....
“People in politics” have the goal to win elections, but it not for the reason that “the people” want to win elections. We want our great country back, they want to retain power and build empires. Romney is a loser that is trying to buy his reputation back. He promises other politicians things to get their support. As long as they scratch each others backs, they don’t give a crap about we the people.
We the people understand fine. It’s them vs. us. They are winning.
