What do establishment Republicans and liberal Democrats have in common? They’ve long labored under a shared misconception: conservative candidates are unelectable.

In 1980, conventional wisdom held that Ronald Reagan didn’t stand a chance against Jimmy Carter. The GOP leadership, the mainstream media and liberal politicos alike lined up against the Gipper in an attempt to derail his presidential campaign.

Rush Limbaugh recently addressed this phenomenon on his radio program: “Gerald Ford said that Ronald Reagan was unelectable. George H.W. Bush said that Ronald Reagan was unelectable. The entire Republican establishment thought Ronald Reagan was unelectable because they were governed and informed by the Goldwater landslide defeat. That’s what they think will happen to every conservative.”

That’s what they think will happen to Newt Gingrich.

  3. You were kind enough to leave a comment on my site, so I’m just returning the favor (so to speak). I love what you say about Reagan. Republican elites did say he was unelectable. They seemed to believe that the average Americans would surely listen to them, and not elect this trigger happy fellow. But, thank God, they were wrong. The American public saw through the media, back then. I just hope that we are wise enough to make the right choices, this time……
