Thompson: We Can't Win by Becoming More Like Democrats

"Some people think, seemingly, that we need to defeat the Democrats next year by becoming more like them," former Tennessee Senator and 2008 Republican presidential candidate said at a meeting of the New York Conservative Party. He went onto say: "It's not time for philosophical flexibility in terms of our principles. That is a sure-fire way of making sure we won't win."

Although I do not agree with Thompson on every issue he is right here. The Republicans will have a hard time winning with a candidate like Rudy Giulaini. The Republicans have a better shot at winning with a social conservative than winning with a candidate that has been backed by the Liberal Party of New York.
