I've said in two other threads now that the recent failure of the Republican party is a failure of marketing more than anything else. They need to learn how to market the party 24/7/365, just like the MSM does for Democrats, and they need to market around and over the constant drumbeat of negativity against Republicans by the MSM and the Democrats. Given how biased the MSM is against Republicans, and how much that is worth to Democrats, if the MSM was actually just neutral in their reporting, Republicans would poll much higher.
The other issue is that when the Republicans do market, it's only for three weeks, and only for individual candidates, not for the party or their ideas, like the MSM does for Democrats. When you have weak messaging, during that brief window, as Mr. Caddell notes, it's a defeat for Republicans and a catastrophe for the country.
So there's the issue out in the open. How to actually accomplish that marketing is the challenge that I haven't quite figured out yet.
Pat fussed about this from early on and frequently. He was all but tearing out his beard he was SO frustrated with the Repubs. Unfortunately, he was proved right. Pat is one of the very few Dems that I have any respect for .... and that increased when he ‘went off’ on the presstitutes (i.e.media) & was so upset his voice was shaking. Pat’s becoming an extinct breed - a Dem who is not a Leftist loon.
We did our best. We ran a rich white guy that hates 47% of the people against a really nice man that is full of err.. hope.
