  •  But how do you create optimal messaging (11+ / 0-)

    (whatever that is) in such a hostile and cash-starved (compared to the opponents) environment. I'm not sure the marketing science even has an answer for this. Which is why I'd prefer our efforts and energy go to citizen-activated messaging. Because the endless "dems suck ..." comments and postings are nothing but demoralizing to the citizens who must make the ground-level messaging efforts.

    •  It's not fair (7+ / 0-)

      which again is why Dems need to essentially be twice as good as the opposition.  I don't particularly care myself for the "dems suck" drumbeat by some here and elsewhere, by the way.

    •  it's people power (13+ / 0-)

      and tech know-how.  Our guys can locate each potential voter, and target the message to the voter, because, we actually have the right message and the right plans.  

      They can spend all the money in the world, they own it all and it's the only thing they'll spend on, but since they have to trick voters and spread lies, their message will always have 'problems.'  Right now the swing states are saturated with their messages which did not stop anyone from wanting access to heath insurance, or make any woman think she should earn less, or not be in control of her own body.  

      They only have one issue that anyone else agrees with (not me, but sone of us) the school vouchers thing, that is set to make gazillions for private educators.  

      They need a cash advantage to get anywhere at all which is why the Roberts court handed it to them.  We have a better advantage, as long as we use it.  We're smarter and we have the issues and we have real person speech, we don't have to make up for low numbers with high cash.  

      In time we'll get this overturned, but in the meantime, let's show them we can win in '14.
