How come media advice for how Republican politicians should act is always different from advice for how Democrat politicians should act?

Put another way, when was the last time Democrats were advised to moderate their positions in order to make themselves appear reasonable?

Final thought. Over the past several months, the NRA has been unyielding in its support of the 2nd Amendment. All the while, the NRA has been accused by msm’ers of being an extremist organization. So who is winning the public opinion fight over the 2nd amendment - the NRA or the MSM? I think we all know the answer to that question. And therein lies a lesson for the GOP.

One word GOP. Now, and in the future:

JOBS.

Because in 2010, the repubs won a blow out across the nation, we got control most of the redistricting for the 2012 election.

In 2012, more voters in Ohio voted for the democrat congressmen, but the gop won 11 out of 16 seats.

This was also true nationwide as the dems got more votes, but we still held the house.

Until 2022, it will be almost impossible for the dems to control the house.

It was the same in 1984. The repubs won more votes, but the dems had an overwhelming majority in the house of reps due to gerrymandering.

Bottomline: if you are a political party, you do not want to get blown out in 2010 or 2020 or you will suffer the consequences.

The Ohio House and Ohio Senate are similarly gerrymandered to shut out the dems for the next decade. Of course the dems did it to us in IL, MD and CA.

Good policy makes good politics. I would prefer that the Republicans do what is best for the country.

However, elections are won and lost on salesmanship. We have the most boring candidates, they don't know how to present information and that is why we lose. They should spend money on the best public relations firm they can find. Salesmanship works.

No...the#1 issue that will cost the GOP the House in ‘14 will be passing Illegal Alien Amnesty. They can talk cute and conservative all they want....but it will be moot if they push multi trillion dollar Amnesty

GOP talk radio and media need to stop pandering to Amnesty Liberals...you aren’t going to beat the Dems dumping the Conservative base for Aliens and Hispanics

If Republicans compromise on any Second Amendment issues, they’ll lose the House. Voter numbers sometimes trump campaign funding from special interest groups.

The Democrats pretty much controlled the House since 1933 until 1995 for the exception of the 1947th and 1953rd House terms. Then in 1995 the Republicans took controlled and have maintained control except for the four years between 2007 to 2010.

Democrats just say anything scandals against Republicans and the press and many voters believe it.
Disgusting situation and not anything Republicans did.

We need to take the press back.

The author is incorrect when he claims “ObamaCare” caused the 2010 GOP resurgence.

Almost no “ObamaCare” policies were in effect in 2010.

The main reason for the GOP's success in 2010 was a dramatic decline in Black and Hispanic voter turnout.

In New Mexico's 2010 governor race, for instance, 61% of Hispanics voted AGAINST the female Hispanic GOP candidate, who won the election.

If that election had been held in 2008 or 2012, the huge Hispanic turnout would have given that election to the Democrat candidate.

“First, remind voters at every turn that we have a long-term entitlement spending crisis and that the Obama administration has contributed to that crisis — primarily by creating an entitlement benefit for the nonelderly that is not paid for in any realistic way.”

WARNING - GOP HACK OVERSIGHT. Funny how this Townhall.com bootlicker “forgot” to mention mention Medicare Part - the GOP created entitlement that matches the above description perfectly.

In 2014? Not just lose a few seats like 1998 but lose control? In a midterm of the President of another party?

That would be unprecedented.

Even suggesting it requires that Obama be VERY popular in November of 2014. More popular that I think it’s possible for him to be even if things go well for him.

And mind you Clinton was VERY popular in 1998 and the democrats only won 5 seats net.
