Why some can't grasp this is beyond comprehension.
It wouldn't be the first time Conservatives cut off their noses to spite their faces.
I think I understand your point, but I'd like to point out that the last election cycle offers some hope to disprove your assumption.
Sharon Angle is no slick orator, and was not the Republican darling candidate, and for the first time in a LONG time, Harry Reid had a challenge on his hands. Now, should she have been on the ticket? Yes, she won the nomination. But, could someone who would have been better at expressing ideas, plans, and debating Reid been nominated? SURE! She got where she went because nobody else stood up to do it.
Also, Marco Rubio. He defeated Charlie Crist by almost 20 points.
So that brings us also to the tooth and nail battle in Alaska. That mouth piece Murkowski decided to split the party on purpose and she's been ostracized for it.
It's time to remove the unions and the PAC's... ALL OF THEM, and not one here and one there... ALL OF THEM. TODAY. RFN. TURN IT OFF LIKE A LIGHT SWITCH.
END all of that sway on candidates, and they will actually listen to the people. Until then, they will chase the dollars, and it's the one off's that want to rebel that we got this last time. Now lets hold their feet to the fire and make sure they are doing their job!!! and if they are, then re-elect them!
