But conservative candidates cannot win, either, while the establishment is slandering the Party’s own nominees. Let’s revive a tired old quip: “It’s the Squabbling, Stupid.” It is hard to win over independents and Reagan Democrats while Republicans are yelling at each other.
The result was to galvanize support for Christine O’Donnell and alienate Mike Castle from the grassroots. Yet the smears in that dossier were repeated thousands of times all during 2010, and damaged the general election. Almost everything you think you know about Christine is a lie set in motion in December 2009 by the GOP establishment.
Yet there are none so blind as those who will not see. GOP elites have done nothing since 2010 to win the Republican grassroots back. The Karl Roves cannot fix the problem because they do not understand what it is.
