David Frum Pleading for Minimising the Losses

David Frum, is a Canadian, son of famed broadcaster-journalist Barbara Frum, he moved south and served with George Bush briefly before being eased out. He had a share in coining the "axis of evil" speech. Notice the use of "our" in the excerpt"

In these last days before the vote, Republicans need to face some strategic realities. Our resources are limited, and our message is failing. We cannot fight on all fronts. We are cannibalizing races that we must win and probably can win in order to help a national campaign that is almost certainly lost. In these final 10 days, our goal should be: senators first.

A beaten party needs a base from which to recover. In 1993, our Republican base was found in the states and the cities. We had the governorships of California, Michigan and Wisconsin in 1993, and Rudy Giuliani won the New York mayor's race later that year. The reform we delivered at the state and local levels contrasted acutely with the shambles of President Clinton's first two years -- and helped us win both houses of Congress in 1994.
