    The secret was organizing like minded people. Their problem is there are not enough mean spirited people for them to organize

    •  The difference between grassroots and SPAM (3+ / 0-)

      ...is essentially this - do you want to hear the message?

      However, I can see GOP learning and apply this to their advantage.  Perhaps that would help them, if their candidate wasn't a complete douche.

      •  Not enough republicans in the electorate who (5+ / 0-)

        respond to social media. The younger crowd is going democratic. Older crowd is stuck in their ways and dying off. Repubicans really do have a problem on their hands.

        They have spent years revving up the fear and hate, and it can't be turned off by waving a magic wand, and saying we didn't  really mean what we said.

        Based on how the fiscal cliff negotiations are going, they don't seem to be backing off their ideology. Granted, they have Sheldon Adelson's vote and the Koch bro's, but that won't win an election.

    •  "not enough mean spirited people"? Are you kidding (0+ / 0-)

      or have you never been to [redacted state name]?

      Really, when you look at the number of voters vs. registered voters vs people qualified to register, if the Rs actually did real voter registration and GOTV, we'd be swamped. We'd be bigger losers than [redacted sports franchise name].

      The "secret" isn't a secret and if you have money, you can hire talent.

      I don't feel we did wrong in taking this great country away from them. There were great numbers of people who needed new land, and the Indians were selfishly trying to keep it for themselves. -John Wayne (-9.00,-8.86)
