For the second time in one day I take exception to something Allahpundit says:
Let’s look at that exit question again:
Exit question for O’Donnell supporters: Assuming she wins tonight and falls, say, 10 points behind Coons, how long should the NRSC funnel money into Delaware for her knowing that dollars lost there can be spent on other races nationwide? To the bitter end, right?
Tell me what was the maximum number of points Scott Brown was down here in Massachusetts? At what point should we have just given up? Where would we be today if we did? Doesn’t anyone remember the political climate just 18 months ago?
When will some conservatives understand that winning involves hard work and persuasion, not just putting a finger to the wind and hoping to catch the breeze.
Sticking a finger in the eye of the tea party guarantees a fight for the soul of the party in 2012 and if the tea party loses that fight there will be a 3rd party and the republicans will not only be done but deserve to be done. This is what I’ve gotten from every tea party supporter I’ve talked to and I talked to hundreds from dozens of states.
Understand this, conservatives don’t support republicans because they love the letter R, they support republicans because they want conservative values to be advanced. if the republicans are unwilling to do this, or if conservatives are unwilling to fight for them, why are you even bothering?
Guys a chance like this comes maybe once every other generation, lets not blow it.
Update: Gateway pundit quotes Rush (without whom republican majorities are a pipe dream)
Rush Limbaugh was right… “They would prefer to have somebody like Mike Castle elected, who is not even as good as McCain. What good is that going to do the conservative movement?”
If only they fought this hard and nasty against the Obama-Pelosi regime.
Guys if you want to know why the national party’s coffers are empty, this is why.
