The Latest Trick Played on the GOP
Why some GOPers fall for liberal lies is astonishing. Is it just a desire to be liked by them?
Check it out:
You know, this Pew Center for People and the Press poll also found that Obama is losing independents in droves. Obama is losing the precious independents, and that’s why independents aren’t precious anymore. You independents, your salad days are gone. If you don’t vote for Democrats, you’re not gonna get anything special. You’re just the latest group of dorks. Romney won the independents big. Cuccinelli won the independents big.
Remember that old saw that the Democrat consultants always used to tell the Republicans and they would believe it? You know, folks, this is worth mentioning again. The Republican Party gets tricked so easily. They get tricked into not criticizing Obama, they get tricked into not being for what they should be for, and they even get tricked into campaigning for only 20% of the vote. Ever since I’ve been dabbling in this, I’ve heard every year, “You don’t win unless you get the independents.
“You got to win the independents. Your base is gonna vote for you, and the Democrat base is gonna vote for it,” and so the consultants go to all these Republican candidates and sell themselves on that ability. “I’m the guy that can get you the independents,” and what do they do? They turn these candidates into squishy, linguine-spined moderates, on the theory that’s how you get the independents.
Another thing we’re always told: “Do not criticize Obama! Do not criticize Democrats! Do not raise your voice, the independents don’t like that.” Remember? “If you do that — if you raise your voice, if you criticize Obama — the independents gonna run in droves to the Democrats, because they don’t like all this bickering.” Now, the Democrats can call us terrorists and rapists and murderers and muggers, and it doesn’t ever seem to bother the independents.
