GOP Has Trouble Settling on Candidates Who Can Win

We need both sides, folks! We need Rove to do "opposition research" on our candidates, to weed out those involved in witchcraft, etc.; as well as to provide substantial funding to oppose the Democratic Machine. On the other hand, we also need the Tea Parties to recruit and volunteer for good conservative candidates. It's BOTH, folks. We all need to pull together, or we will surely be pulled apart.

NO. It is evil to compromise with evil. You do realize that the whole witchcraft thing was a smear, right? Rove stayed out of jail by throwing scooter to the wolves. The Man doesn't have a moral bone in his body. A perfect example of what is wrong with the GOP.
I am an American, I put country before party. Rove and his ilk put themselves before either. That is why the GOP either must change or die.
NO COMPROMISE. Fight to the last ditch and if we lose, burn down the Temple.
I would rather see America destroyed then taken over by godless Communists.

One of the interesting things about recent elections is that Republicans have tended to do better the farther you go down the ballot.

They've lost the presidency twice in a row, and in four of the last six contests. They've failed to win a majority in the U.S. Senate, something they accomplished in five election cycles between 1994 and 2006.

But they have won control of the House of Representatives in the last two elections, and in eight of the last 10 cycles.

And they've been doing better in elections to state legislatures than at any time since the 1920s.
