  •  They plan on lying... (8+ / 0-)

    and letting the chips fall where they may. It isn't like there's a strong message machine out there to counter their bullshit.

    The goal it looks like is to muddy the waters enough so that the low information voter is confused, and stays home on election day. And if we're being honest with ourselves it isn't like the Democrats have a unified positive message to hammer on.

    I sing praises in the church of nonsense, but in my heart I'm still an atheist, demanding sense of all things.

      "If the presidential election told us anything, it’s that Americans place a great importance on taking care of those in need and avoiding harm to the weak," reads the AFP memo.
      "... so instead of being a party that actually represents those values ... in order to win elections we must pretend to be the kind of people who care for those in need and don't harm the weak."
      The memo says that the "Left had a superior messaging strategy..."
      With Republicans it's all about the "messaging."  Reality?  Meh.  Get Paul Ryan some more clean dishes to "wash".
      •  As I read it again ... even more ... (0+ / 0-)

        Republicans need to be told that taking care of those in need and avoiding harm to the weak are good and popular things?!

        They need to learn from polls that those are things Americans might ... you know ... place great importance on?

        It doesn't occur to them that those things should be promoted just for their own sake?  Because they're the ... you know ... the right, moral thing to do?!  

        Do Republicans really just assume that all Americans are as selfish and unempathetic as they are, and it is an interesting fact to them -- something to be exploited politically -- to find out that other humans have this "empathy" thing?

        Good grief.  That quote just oozes "sociopathy".
