GOP:Stuck in the Mud

When Frank Luntz, GOP master-of-deception starts talking about how the Rethuglican party needs to "get real" you know there's trouble in paradise.
"... my recent public opinion research has recorded unprecedented anxiety about the country's direction. Just 34 percent of the voting public believe that the America of tomorrow will be better than the America of today, while 57 percent think it will be worse.This explains why so many people have lost patience with the current U.S. leadership. It is no wonder that 52 percent of voters in my election night survey said they were "mad as hell" about politics and politicians. [snip]Congressional Republicans didn't seem to notice in 2006, and certainly didn't seem to care.[snip]It is unfortunate that the Republican Party is currently dominated by hyperpartisan, gut-punching professional politicians and expert technicians whom I wouldn't want to face at the dark end of the electoral alley. They specialize in the flawless execution of "wedge" politics. That may have worked well in past elections, but no longer. The latest gimmick is "branding" -- a Madison Avenue technique -- to reverse the Republican slide. But political parties are not brands, slogans are not a replacement for ideas and you don't sell leaders the way you sell widgets." Read the rest...
Weird though how Frankie-boy espouses this new strategy of 'fact-based reality' thus changing the tactics of "branding" for which he has been not only a major proponent, but one who provided language and strategy to that GOP movement. Prick. Yeah, I'm one of the really pissed off Americans. The irony and hypocrisy runs so deep with these people, it's a shame it's not an alternative energy source---we could be off our "oil addition" in a hot minute.

Imagine how much lower public opinion of the Republicans would be if they didn't have such a stranglehold on the news media. Like -12, maybe.

Great stuff, Hope. I read through many of your posts back to the Incompetent Ass. (I loved that picture of George!) I really enjoy your site and am going to put a link to it on my site.

In regards to this post, I think we need a scientific study on the possibility that it is all that Republican Hot Air that is causing global warming.

Also, thanks for checking out the Blog of Revelation. You'll be hearing from me again.

Peace, Sister
Bro Tim
