  •  What Republicans Know (0+ / 0-)

    and Democrats can't fathom is that the voting public in the Republican and Independent camps has an attention span that lasts until the next election cycle and no further.

    In short, those voters revew their hate and outrage meters every two years.

    Thus, the Pledge to America is valid only for the next two years and consequently, they don't have to demonstrate that their policies work beyond that.  In fact, to their way of thinking it is foolish to make policies beyond the next election cycle.

    Unfortunately, it is an appealing, and even winning, strategy with a segment of disgruntled at everyone and thing besides themselves and their own voters.

    "ingratiation and access . . . are not corruption." -- Justice Kennedy (Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 2010)
