Forget Ted Cruz's Electability, Let's Have a Discussion on the Electability of Republican Moderates - A Whittle Bit of Commentary 3/25/15

Transcript may appear different than audio version:

The media is already dumping on Senator Ted Cruz and his electability. The bad thing is all of this talk is coming from the conservative side of the media, and not the other side. This always happens. When a conservative that is a heartfelt, real deal conservative runs, this is what they do. I would like to see a discussion about the electability of the moderates that have and are running for the Republican nomination.  Let’s have a discussion on that. Where’s the discussion on the electability of Jeb Bush? On John McCain, Mitt Romney, Bob Dole. All establishment candidates and all lost. Regan and George W. Bush (remember Bush ran as a conservative) and they both won. In my life time when the GOP goes conservative, they’ve won. When they’ve gone moderate they’ve lost. Maybe if they’ve stopped putting him down and build him up, then maybe his chances of winning could be better. There are plenty of media outlets that’ll try to hurt his campaign and others on our side. I hope our side doesn’t participate in it. I’m Chad Whittle on A Whittle Bit of Commentary.
