The spinmeisters are out in full force these days. But Danny Briscoe may be right that Democrats need to field a candidate who isn’t afraid of losing.
“The thing most complimentary you can say about Beshear is, having run twice statewide and lost and to come back and run a third time, it displays a lot of discipline and a lack of a fear of losing,” Briscoe said.
Just last week Andrew Horne told Ryan Alessi that he’s not afraid of losing.
“I’m not a politician. I am not afraid of losing. If I was worried about risk and danger, I woudn’t have joined the Marine Corps before I graduated high school. That’s not a concern for me,” he said. “I respond when my country needs me, not when it’s convenient.”
That’s just what needs to happen. A candidate like Horne needs to jump in the race instead of continually weighing their options like others seem to be doing. Some think traveling to D.C. and calling major donors are the only necessary motions to make at this stage of the game. But it’s a little late for testing the waters. You’re either in or you’re out. It’s time.
Oh. Contrary to Republican spin, Horne has never said he wants to “lose” the war in Iraq. Twisting words sure is fun.
