Conservative radio host Mark Levin told Fox News anchor Sean Hannity Tuesday night that Dave Brat’s upset of House Majority Leader Eric Cantor (R-VA) showed that a GOP candidate who appealed to the “principles” of the party would be more a forceful opponent to feckless Democrats than Republican establishment candidates.
“They’re afraid of Obama, they’re afraid to take these steps,” Levin said. “You look at this election in 2012 of Obama. Obama should have been beaten by a halfway competent presidential candidate in the Republican Party that could articulate the principles of the party and expose Obama’s weakness. We didn’t do it. Millions of people stayed home. Who are those million of people? Those were Reagan Democrats. Those are blue collar Democrats.”
“Stop chasing ethnic groups, stop chasing genitalia,” Levin continued. “Talk to the American people. Talk about liberty, opportunity. Explain to them that Obama’s wrong, and that we need to unleash the American people and unleash the economy.”
“You might be making news with that ‘genitalia’ remark,” Hannity replied. “But those that don’t know you don’t know your sense of humor.”
