  •  So, there should be a single source of Democratic (0+ / 0-)

    communications, that would present a unified source of information? Like, without any internal argument? And still cover all the points that all the various factions of the party have? As the Republicans have tried to do? LMAO.

    I think this is a prescription for insanity - at least for any competent editor who tries to manage such a project.

    One assumption you have particularly bothers me:

    Hiring professional, talented writers and communicators to produce the messages; after owning ad agencies for 45 years, I cannot emphasizes enough how crucial this is in persuading an audience
    I'm not sure whether you're calling Akadjian untalented, or unprofessional, but please - ad agencies may occasionally come up with really good stuff, but there's no guarantee that comes with the package.

    At least half the future I've been expecting hasn't gotten here yet. Sigh.... (Yes, there's gender bias in my name; no, I wasn't thinking about it when I signed up. My apologies.)

      His points are all correct. We have the GOP beaten on every issue he describes, and he describes them well and accurately. My complaint is that the Dems have NO EFFECTIVE MECHANISM IN PLACE TO DELIVER HIS MESSAGE. It is doing no good sitting on a Kos site. That's what is pathetic.

        box down on the right side of the page. 31,890 people recommended the diary on Facebook. I'm not sure how many readers that translates to, but it's not insubstantial, and doesn't count secondary links.

        "Sitting on a Kos site" isn't quite the same thing as it used to be.

        •  I agree...but (0+ / 0-)

          What we need is a continuing, well produced program (campaign) to inform people -- especially voters and the undecideds -- that our programs are good for the country; and the Republicans are obstructionists without solutions (Obama said it best yesterday, they want to defeat ideas without offering others). We have a strong message. I am not willing to just give up and let them have their way when it comes to communication. There is magnificent talent in our party as we have demonstrated over and over. We DO have th issues. What we lack is a cohesive, organized, well funded communication campaign which will give our candidates a platform and battle cry for their support.
