“I have no feeling for the electorate anymore,” said John H. Sununu, the former New Hampshire governor who helped the elder Mr. Bush win the 1988 primary there and went on to serve as his White House chief of staff. “It is not responding the way it used to. Their priorities are so different that if I tried to analyze it I’d be making it up.”
Left unsaid: They now believe all elections are about Willie Horton. Don't they understand that was just a one-time trick? How was I expected to know the voters would actually believe the lies we told them?
