interesting op-ed well not to you libs but to us TRUE conservatives http://www.caintv.com/how-reid-and-obama-put-disarme from the article: If Republicans want to win the messaging war, they need to start by a) recognizing who the enemy is; and b) recognizing how to take victory away from them. There are three enemies: 1. The Democrats; 2. The mainstream media. 3. The culture. Obama, Reid and Pelosi push nonsense. The media celebrates the nonsense. Celebrities and activists attack critics of the nonsense. If Republicans really want to win the messaging war, they need to attack all three, relentlessly. I'm not talking about the lame approach of trying to win a given day's "24-hour news cycle," and I'm certainly not talking about Boehner's incessant whining that Obama won't work with him. That sort of crap is for losers, and it's also playing by the other side's rules. Winning means declaring all-out war on all three, and not worrying that it will get you bad press, or that you'll alienate whoever. It means that constantly using the resources at your disposal - your own social media feeds, your own press people, conservative-leaning media like this site and others, your direct access to your constituents - to constantly and effectively hammer home the facts about what Obama's policies are doing to the nation. The slow growth. The rising debt. The high unemployment. The soaring insurance premiums. The missed energy opportunities. You have to show people in real, factual terms the trouble this is causing the nation. And you have to recognize where the greatest opportuntiy is to soften up Democrats' support, and that's with the 20 percent of the electorate that calls itself independent. These people are not ideological, but they can be persuaded by facts. They will believe it if you prove with facts that Obama's policies are not working. They will be open if you show them Republicans have better ideas. But they also listen to the mainstream press, so you can't allow the press to enjoy unchallenged credibility it does not deserve.
