A great article and one I totally agree with. Karl Rove and the GOP elites need to go. They are the big reason we have lost three presidential elections - Bob Dole, John McAmnesty (I see he is up to that again) and now Mitt Romney. I have been a Republican all my life, but I left and will be a Tea Party supporter. I was digusted when the Republicans threw Sarah Palin under the bus in 2008 (and still do) and wouldn't allow her to bring up the background of Obama. She was and is certainly more Conservative than McCain, Rove and the rest of that ilk. Rove was the reason Christine O'Donnel lost. On the night of her primary win he came on TV and said she couldn't win - so of course Delaware voted for the RINO again????
