Three of the last four [elections], ’06, ’08, and ’12, were disastrous for Republicans. And they were years in which we just we stayed quiet, we went along the get-along, we didn’t stand on principle. The only year that was a good year for Republicans was 2010, when we painted in bold colors, not in pale pastels. We stood for principle. I think winning this fight right now is the most important thing we can do to see significant victories in 2014.
