Undeniably true. But while I once thought that it was a raw deal, I don’t any longer. Let me explain and I welcome anyone who can prove this wrong to do so....
The GOP has a full compliment of media experts but it does not take an expert to see what the MSM/Libs are doing. Yet in spite of that, the GOP pols continue to knowingly go on these shows, talk to these media outlets. And they know what the end result will be.
Palin proved beyond argument that one person with name recognition can use the net/Facebook/Twitter/YouTube to totally and completely bypass the MSM. Reagan knew that taking his unfiltered message directly to the people was the way to make things happen.
The ‘experts’ in the GOP know this as well. They would have to be totally incompetent to ‘not’ know it because as experts, it is their job to know it. The politicians themselves are not blind to the fact that Palin runs circles around the MSM spin with a Facebook page either. They see that every post she makes gets a full court press from the MSM to craft a narrative that what she said id anything but true.
Now I am only using Palin as an example here because she is the only one doing it, not because I am a fan/supporter...nor do I want to turn this into a flamewar over her. It’s what she does that the GOP completely avoids that is the problem.
If the GOP used the tools in the box, they too could bypass the MSM just as easily. They are big names and they actually hold official office. They have access to the same kind of people that work on her web and media endeavors.
But knowing and having all that knowledge and far more access to $$$$ to make it happen via fundraising and GOP coffers, They don’t. And it’s not just ‘don’t’, they flat refuse to.
Now if anyone can logically explain why that is without coming to the conclusion, supported by the facts on the ground, that the GOP intends to sabotage itself and it’s remaining supporters/move the political pendulum further left in the process, I really want to hear it.
I am beginning to agree with you...not even GOP politicians could be so stupid. Why do they continue to play the Dem/media game??? As the Dem/media complex sets the agenda, provides the questions and often interprets GOP answers in ways that work to only enhance the Democratic narrative. So, why do they do it?
Last year only Gingrich called out some of the MSM questioners. Why didn’t Romney???
I can only explain it in terms of our one party system...with two wings. It’s as though the Republicans really want the Obama agenda to go through. I became suspicious when Roberts became the fifth vote for Obamacare. Clearly it’s an unconstitutional use of the commerce clause...yet Roberts twisted the government’s argument away from the commerce clause to the taxing power in order to find it constitutional.
It’s as though the fix is in.
Mark Levin has been pushing a similar theme this week: that the GOP-e wants socialism.
Until now, I had assumed that they were cowardly fools and useful idiots. My opinion is changing.
Down with the Rovebots.
Unhhh, nobody earns any commissions on a Facebook page posting. That's your answer right there.
My thinking is that the GOP does not represent conservatives and conservatives deny this fact. The GOP is intent on beating the dems at their game, being schoozy with the media and the public, wile pretending to be conservative. It’s a loser position in any situation.
Conservatives deny it.
Marco Rubio is seen as a consrvative, yet there is no evidence.
He is a complete complete dooofus jumping around to get a drink of water. AND he gulped! Audibly.
he had spent the previous hour or so taping a response in spanish, so he was revved up, nervous and thirsty, and ill prepared logistically to give that speech which everyone pretends to love.
It’s a metaphor for these guys. They’re trying to please everyone, of course they can’t.
They’re worse than the dems. THe dems have a principal: get in and stay in paower no matter what including destroying the country. Lie to the voters and dumb them down so they’re gullible, in order to do so.
The GOP has no principals so they lose with everyone especially the media who do a Lucy with the football and succeed fro the sam reson she does - doofusness of her opponent..
Conservatives don’t want to admit it.
