I don't blame Mitt, Ann; I blame you and your ilk. You poisoned our primaries with garbage about "electability" that always, ALWAYS boils down to running to the Left to be more like democrats. All this "don't spook them" nonsense just leads us to candidates that can't credibly market the 3-legged stool because they, like you, don't really believe in it.
We need candidates that believe in conservatism, in American fundamentals, and can defend it as vigorously, articulately, and sincerely as Marco Rubio, Rand Paul, and Paul Ryan. We do not need more RINOs that don't realize you can't out-bid Santa Claus for free stuff making meely-mouth, aw-shucks, passive-aggressive campaigns of "I'm the lesser of two evils."
Garbage in, garbage out.
