Of course they do. That's the whole point.
So, does the RNC require the candidates it gives money to to "pledge" not to raise taxes? Isn't that the #1 plank of the RNC for the past 40 years? Lower taxes?
So GN represents the RNC. That's his job. Michael Steele did the same thing 2 years ago. So there's nothing new under the sun besides a concerted effort on the part of the Media to find a goat to blame.
With the same "due respect", there is a cavernous difference between making a commitment (verbally to a group, in a campaign speech/ad/literature) that you will support
a given position in reference to the current time and conditions and signing a pledge in perpetuity, stating that you will never
vote a certain way on an issue, no matter the situation or circumstances. I stand by my statement that doing so is an abdication of their oath of office.
I was still pretty young and foolish when learned the folly of saying "Never!"
