    I agree, we need to be on the offensive. Just want to make sure it's effective.

    No sense putting out something that doesn't work, no?

    How many times over the campaign did they completely neutralize our offensive:

    • Kerry as Vietnam Vet? BAM -- Swift Boats for Shit.

    • Wrong War Wrong Time? BAM -- you can't be Commander in Chief if you think the war is wrong? What's that say to the troops?

    All I am saying is that Rove and Co. are GOOD. Probably better than us when it comes to marketing their cause.

    I would overanalyze everything the Dems potentially put out, figuring out as many angles as possible that the Repubs may counter with -- you know that's exactly what they do. You don't think THEY second guess before they put out an ad?

    I bet they have a staff of ten or twenty second-guessers.

    Just trying to be helpful...

      surely part of the Kerry campaign's problem was that it wasn't effective enough at smacking BushCo back when the Swifties etc. began their attacks.  Whatever you do the Republicans are going to counter it somehow.  I'm not saying don't anticipate; I'm just saying that it would be a mistake to let that anticipation lead to timidity.
