20. I agree that we can.
However, he seems to have dominated the conversation here for a couple of days. I feel like we've been kind of head faked on this one.
They're the ones who actually took action on an issue that we were extremely outraged about. Granted, we weren't in any position to do anything about it but complain, but we did a lot of complaining.
The entity that takes action is going to be viewed as the 'go getter' entity. In this case that's the republican party.
I think they flanked us on this; we were all appropriately outraged. We spent quite a bit of time getting (and being) outraged, and then they essentially did the right thing.
I wonder if they baited us, or just reacted appropriately. Whatever they did it took a lot of heat off R/R for a couple of days; gave them an opportunity to regroup. Distance themselves from this guy. I even think this action played to more than just the base.
If this was orchestrated by Rove, I think we fell for it. Remember his PAC pulled out before the DNC. Where did this story originate?
