Yeah, I get all this, but what people keep neglecting to mention, purposefully I believe, is that it didn’t matter what Romney said. The corrupt MSM worked with Democrats to bludgeon Romney at every turn. They were simply not going to let Romney have a fair shot at making his case.

Think about it, think about Paul Ryan. By all accounts a smart and thoughtful man. What did the MSM help the Democrats do? Say that Ryan and Romney wanted to kill Medicare. Did the MSM ever realy pursue Obama’s stealing the $750 billion from Medicare for Obamacare? No, they did not.

So you see, what Republicans have been conditioned to do - for decades now - is to soft sell everything in the misguided hope that the corrupt MSM would convey the information in a fair and accurate manner. That has not happened nor will it — ever!

It was not Romney. It was not his message, or lack of one. It was the corrupt MSM that has the power to bludgeon any Republican in favor of their Democrat brethren, and they do that — ruthlessly, and consistently.

Bottom line? It matters not what any Republican ever says, the corrupt MSM filter it for maximum adverse impact to Republicans and for maximum benefit for their Democrat brethren.

I know this all seems so simplistic, but it’s fact.

Correct. We will suffer a pyrrhic victory in that when the economy does collapse, it will happen under Bammy.

Of course, they'll all claim Obama is not at fault

Serious question .... what the hell do we do to defang these guys? People are cutting off their cable and maybe the LSM eventually feels it in the pocketbook, but how do we really DO something NOW about the Chris Mathews, Rachel Madcows, Candy Crowleys, Bahir (who just pulled a despicable stunt regarding Krauthammer), et al? We have the ‘new media’, but that is an alternative choice, not a baseball bat to directly confront and oppose these corrupt “media” Obama whores. They are enablers of the ‘enemy within’ and indeed have become the enemy themselves.

You are right, of course. But still the writer's point stands - its clear the GOP cannot parse their positions in hopes of favorable treatment by the press. They've tried that already several cycles now, all failures.

They need to stake out a clear alternative position, opposed to the corrupt left, and stand by it loudly. To hell with the consequences - thay cannot be any worse than they are now.

Then the simple answer is to destroy the power of the MSM; one way or another.

If the republicans are so RICH; let them BUY the papers and tv and cable corporations.

But this will do NO good until the propanganda machine called public (even PRIVATE) education is revamped as well.

It may already be too late; as there is a tsunami sized backlog of 'students' filling the pipeline now.
