    "My fate was sealed without either one of them, in retrospect," he said of Palin and DeMint's endorsements, suggesting that voters were too angry for his moderate views. "They were very energetic, they were very committed, and they didn't want to hear any other point of view."

    Well at least he seems to get it to a certain extent, unlike , say, Jay Coat who wrote "This means that Castle is pretty much a mainstream Republican for the Northeast. He's not some extreme RINO heretic. He's just a northeastern Republican." That's the problem, The People are tired of "business as usual" & felt that he sold out too many times.
    "It's not that government is inherently stupid, although that's a debatable question."

    I think what is happening in the Republican party is a healthy dose of reality. The democratic party needs to do the same. The Democratic party's leadership's lack of attention to the desires of those who support them is the reason they are likely to get hammered in Nov.
    Bottom line is there are huge differences between what the base of both parties want. Instead of actually representing those desires of the voters, we get one of two things in our political leaders. Either they are corrupt bastards who don't care about anything except filling their pockets with dollars, a.k.a. Bush Cheney regime, or they are wishy washy compromisers that end up with the worst of both sides, a.k.a. Clinton, and so far Obama. When is the last time any presidential politician of either political party threw all in full for the agenda they got elected on? Also, how many times have we seen the center piece agenda or outcomes of a President concern topics that NEVER were spoken of during their campaigns?
    Example: Clinton becoming the biggest de-regulator of industry and champion of wall street in history. Or Ronald Reagan and George Bush being the biggest budget busters in history?
