AmeriCAN-DO Attitude

Are you an AmeriCAN or an AmeriCAN'T?

Advice to Republicans – This Isn’t Rocket Science

Some good advice given by a commentor to this post over at Ace of Spades HQ: As Prophesized, Messiah Preaches Hope and Change, But Is Rejected by the People He Has Been Sent to Save

Bush and the Republicans were either holed up or running for cover for the last 3 years. Along came the Democrats to fill the leadership vacuum. Until the Republicans can show some leadership, the Democrats will win even with their failed, stale ideas.”

Agreed. My advice to the Republicans is:

1. Grow a Pair. Do not apologize for who you are or what you believe. Defend your ideas when the Dems come out with the scurrilous ad hominem attacks. They’re smart enough to realize that they can’t win the battle of ideas, so they have to personalize the fight. (Rush?). Americans agree with conservative principles if only you:

2. Sell Your Product Market conservative ideas. Tell the American people what you’re going to tell them. Tell them. Then tell them what you just told them. Hit it again and again. Pound it into them so there’s no mistaking what we believe in.

3. Cultivate Effective Leaders. Sorry, but John tan-in-a-can Boehner doesn’t cut it. He talks a good game, but when push comes to shove, he’s a bling-wearing Bob Michel. Find people who are intelligent, articulate, and fast on their feet, and trot them out at every opportunity to drive the message home.

4. Counterpunch One of the most frustrating things about the Bush administration is that they sat there and took every Democratic attack without responding, because they thought it was beneath the dignity of the President. Take a lesson from the Clintons. Hit back. Hit back hard, and hit back immediately and in a draconian manner.

5. Walk the Walk. This was the reason Republicans lost Congress in the first place. American voters are highly allergic to “do as I say not as I do”. Don’t talk conservative principles and vote like Barney Frank.

This isn’t rocket science. The Dems are an incompetent socialist fraud. If we can’t beat that, we should just roll up our tent and go home, because we suck.

100% agreed.

Ummm, paging RNC Chairman Michael Steele? You may want to hire this man to advise some of the incompetent idiots in your party. In fact, you may want to hire this man to advise you. Just a thought.

Oh, and Ace’s “Sermon on the Teleprompter” quip? Pure gold. heh
