If the Pubbies run with a “chicken in every pot” the Dems will run for two or three in every pot and then excoriate the Pubbies for being so mean that the one chicken is not enough. You can never win that way.
Like Rush has stated over and over; if you run a real conservative and espouse conservative values you win. History has proved it.
The RNC is full of rich liberals who look down on the citizens of the US with disdain and have as much contempt for us as the Dems.
I am Hispanic from the Midwest. most Hispanics live conservative and vote liberal like many white families. it goes back to JFK. I remember visiting Hispanic homes in the 60 s and 70s and seeing JFKs picture on the wall. He was the first Catholic prez. Many black evangelical blacks voted because BO is black. I remember seeing Steve Harvey (u can probably find it on YouTube) in 2008 and he said that he didn’t care what BO did, he was going to vote for him because he was black. I think it is all about emotions and feelings. It sounds compassionate, when you say you want to help people, feed them give the working families something. I know the argument, “ you show compassion by giving people a job” and not handouts. Americans have become like woman (I bet that 90% of Freepers are men) and they vote because it sounds good, clean air, free medical, food stamps. The libs care about people, that is the perception. The GOP will never win until they can show compassion and sell economic growth as compassion. We need to take back the educational system first. Where are the GOP statesmen, going out and selling their views. You can’t compete with Oprah and daytime TV. You all are going to think that this is crazy but I think Sarah Palin show have a daytime talk show like Oprah. It would do more to sell conservative values than any office. Fight fire with fire.
