How is it that many GOP Senators and Congressmen support a lot of the same programs as the Dems?
Could it be that they pull out their conservative rhetoric every election cycle to garner the conservative vote?
It is up to the candidate to run a competent and persuasive candidate. If the conservatives or other blocks of the electorate do not go out to vote for the GOP guy, who's fault is that?
The solution is for the GOP to run competent and persuasive candidates and not to whine about the outcome.
