Why can't conservatives just make up their own mind? Why do they have to sit and wait for you or me or Karl Rove or anybody to tell them who they should want? We saw in this process that the base of the party said we will do this our way in our time. They're in no rush to do this. They want to vet these guys. There's a serious discussion undergoing in the RNC, in the party right now…about the difference between foundational principles versus Big Government Republicanism.
Steele is exactly right on this one. Romney’s great win simply wasn’t that great. He’s been running for the same office for five years yet he only got one out of every four votes cast in Iowa. Seems to me that Republicans are still looking for their conservative.
