Reagan's 11th Commandment is FUBAR
Wrong. Reagan's 11th Commandment has never held water throughout Republican circles. The commandment is merely an excuse to scare Republicans into not bashing establishment candidates and elected officials. First of all, if Republicans were obligated to adhere to this 'commandment,' what would become of the primary elections?
Ronald Reagan himself broke this approach of not speaking ill of a fellow Republican when he beat Gerald Ford in the 1976 North Carolina Primary.
