  •  If Dems count on Republican self-destruction, (7+ / 0-)

    they are screwing it up bigtime.

    Right now, every one of us knows that somewhere there's a false scandal, or eight, being conjured up about the President; there's another dozen faux outraged sensibilities to be farted about MediaLand.

    They'll make Photoshop pix of Obama and Michelle beating baby seals to death with baby penguins if they have to.

    So if the Dems can't come up with "We are going to do exactly this about The Jobs Crisis, but you must Vote for us." then it really isn't going to matter which of the Repub transparent sociopaths run, they'll have a chance of winning.

    But, look like you are engaged with the people, look like you have a plan, plus justly bash the Repubs, then it's all Landslide City. You win the votes, you win the Seats.


    Until we break the corporate virtual monopoly on what we hear and see, we keep losing, don't matter what we do.

    •  You know, "Hammer it home" kind of implies (0+ / 0-)

      more action than waiting for self destruction.  

      And if we don't fight back against the photoshopped crap,  well, then, we'll get what we deserve.  

      •  Propaganda trick Repubs mastered and Dems (0+ / 0-)

        fall for every time. Like Kerry against the provable coward and liar Bush.

        Every time Kerry defenders said "swiftboat charge is false" the public heard "swiftboat" again. Given the established light attention the majority of voters put on what they hear, the defense against the charge helped cement the charge. We wasted weeks on that.

        The response to an attack is a more-furious attack. When you can base it on the truth, you just need to use language people use instead of the wonk-speak Democratic p.r. & politicians fall into.

        Attack, attack, attack is rule number one in a political campaign. And part of "attack" is having clear policies where your opponent has, at best, clearly destructive policies.
