Add to that, the cowardice of the GOP leaders(?), failure to read the pulse of America, among other things. I had a Democrat tell me the other day after I challenged him that there is infighting in their party as well, he said, true, but when push comes to shove, we unite for the sake of the upcoming elections, whereas you people eat each other up." Is he wrong? Did we not see this during the debates of the Primary. Perry, Gingrich, Santorum, Bachmann tearing into Romney....they are a good part of the blame because they gave the Bain ammunition to the Dems. The only gentleman up there in that group was Herman Cain. Yes, and Chris Christie's despicable fawning....Great post, Laurie!
