Does Mitt Romney really want to win the Presidency? He keeps showing up for Debate Club when this is Fight Club. The first rule of fight club is not that you do not talk about fight club. The first rule of fight club is that you win.
Does Mitt Romney really want to win?
But if Romney wants to win, he had better get on message quickly. He had better learn messaging.
Here is messaging for Mitt. I hope he is taking notes.
First, Barack Obama is not a nice guy. Quit saying that. No anti-American Marxist is a nice guy. You say he is a nice guy and he says you are an uptight jerk, born with a silver spoon in your mouth and you want to see Americans fired, starved and have all of their rights stripped away.
If you start with the premise that he is a nice guy, you lose. The drive by media and Madison Avenue are working overtime to help Obama win the popularity contest. You won’t.
But then again, you don’t need to.
Tip O’Neil said, “All politics is local,” and you do not get any more local than the individual American and his or her economic situation.
Quit saying that we are in economic recovery. We are not. This is the Great Obama Depression. Make him own the economy.
You are not offering us a conservative alternative. Your message is that you can manage the nation better. First, your message sucks. But if that is going to be your message, then you must make him own the Great Obama Depression.
That should be your talking point. Every time you start talking about the economy, that should be your tagline. If the economy is recovering, even slowly, what the hell are you offering us?
Right now, this is the Great Obama Depression. If we calculated unemployment today, the way we did back in the first great depression, unemployment would be 17%. One out of every two college graduates cannot even find a job. The last time the Republicans controlled the government, 90% of college graduates found a job
This is not hard. It only takes a little discipline and the willingness to fight. Your big problem is that you have a serious case of “Member of the club syndrome.”
You treat Obama and the other Democrats as “members of the club.” The club is of course, the governing class. John McCain made that mistake, as did Bob Dole before him. He will not show you the same courtesy so why do you?
This is Fight Club not Debate Club. You have to be willing to throw some punches and take a few hits. You may get a bloody nose and get some blood on your freshly laundered white shirt.
So what? How badly do you want it?
John Kerry’s messaging in 2004 was, “We can do better.” Actually he could not do better but that is about as uninspiring a message as you can get.
Since you are not going to offer us a Reagan alterative to liberalism, at least do your messaging correctly so you have a chance.
Republicans are amazingly bad on messaging and even by Republican standards your messaging is abysmal.
In 1976, Ronald Reagan began mocking Gerald Ford on Détente. What had been a foreign policy triumph for Ford turned into such an albatross around his neck that Ford gave orders that his campaign not mention the word Détente.
This is simple. Four words: The Great Obama Depression.
If this is your message and you stay on it, people will vote their pocket books. All you have to do is ask them, “Are you better off now, after almost 6 years of Democrat control of the Congress or were you better off when Republicans controlled government? Are you better off now after four years of Obama or were you better off when the Republicans controlled the government.”
This is winning messaging. It is simple.
This is messaging for Mitt. The question for Mitt is, “Do you want to win?”
For much too long, we have concealed our "true" feelings about people that were in power in the USA. Our "Silence" has contributed to "tyrants" taking charge ! Backed up 50 years ago and let "The Federal Government Take Control of Our States, Counties and Cities.
They use the "Civil Rights Movement" as a "Springboard" to 'Take Control of the USA' . They Righted Some Wrongs but they "Wronged Some of Our Rights". Now, we have to go back through the "books" and see where the "UNconstitutional Provisions have been inserted and rip those out".
We repelled the communists in 1962 and finally the USSR Unrevaeled in 1990. But, the many remanents of the Old Communist Guard are still alive and Putin is in the Process of Using Russia (The Mother Ship) to restore the USSR (my opinion).
We Must "Hold The Line on Our Constitution and Bear any Burden, Pay any Price, Oppose and Foe and Defend any Friend...to Keep the Constitution alive and rid our country of "Those Intent on Destroying It".
Obama uses the Alinsky tactics. Does Romney have any knowledge of this?
so does Robme
Judson, thank you for the truth!
This is disgusting! How dare we call ourselves Americans and surrender to socialism/Marxism without a fight.
Shame on U.S. The Tea Party acknowledged months ago that Romney would probably annihilate his Republican opponents, then wuss out on Obama, in the same manner that he did with Ted Kennedy when he ran for the Massachusetts senate seat. We, in Massachusetts, told you that months ago. Even Donna Brazile, Clinton's administration go-to-gal said Obama was salivating to run against Romney. Don't you believe what you hear, or are you so compromised that the truth is a lie, and the lie is the truth. Rove, who was instrumental in promoting Romney, now says he can't win. Then why the heaven did he promote him??? There is too much second-guessing going around the Republican elite. If they think they can lie down and BHO will ignore them or thank them for giving him a second term, they are more of the useful idiots that Lenin and Stalin and other Marxists have used. Republicans have already hoisted the white flag of surrender to Obama, and it's only April already. Tea Party and Republicans have got to get some sense. I, for one, do NOT want to live in a communist/socialist state where we are afraid to utter a peep; we have no cojones or guts and we will die as slaves, God help us. Wake up people, stop being sheeple. Wake up! There is an adage that goes: fool me once shame on you; fool me twice, same on me. SHAME on U.S.
Right on Helaine!
Never mind us telling Romney or anyone else what to do! We need to do our job, as Ron says,
We Must "Hold The Line on Our Constitution and Bear any Burden, Pay any Price, Oppose (any) Foe and Defend any Friend...to Keep the Constitution alive and rid our country of "Those Intent on Destroying It".
And thanks, Jimmy, for a clear look at what a crock "social justice" is - as though anyone with a brain thinks people are in charge of everything. Control freaks know better - they just get stuck on thinking nice means stupid.
Of course it's foolish to "make nice" with bad behavior! We have it within our power - and it's our time - to show nice makes might makes right!!!
yo go girl! You are the truth!
I suggest this "Message From Mitt:"
"I want an America where
no one is too small to succeed.....
and no one is too big to fail!"
and only the rich with no ideas win the nomination
Mitt Romney better want to win. I shutter to even think that Romney is just "going along," or has been bought out or threatened. Is it too much to ask, when we didn't even get the nominee we wanted, for a fair election of the people? I pray that there is one shred of reality left in this country. Is it too much to ask that we at least get a fair election. Is there anyone right now that is looking into the election process and making effort to stop illegal voting?
I am sure Romney won't be forthright enough to get a message out that will burn and destroy our reigning king, so we have to do it. Get out as much evidence as possible about what this man is doing and where he is taking our country (to a h@ll hole of world government and shari'ah law).
I am starting here: WHO THE DEVIL IS THIS MAN IN THE OVAL OFFICE? It isn't only the question of the date on the forged birth certificate. Now there is the question of, "WHO'S HIS DADDY?"
Janet: We got the nominee we wanted. The people followed like sheep when G.O.P. put Romney up. We the people did not have to vote for him. I agree the party stinks,but the people voted for him. The voters have to look in mirror and decide who's fault it is that we have Romney this time. The American people have lost the ability to see how they are being led to slaughter like sheep. Neither party gives a hoot about we the people. American people have demonstrated they can't understand plain English. Candidate Obama spoke in English and people did not hear one word he spoke. We the people gave away our country and now we expect someone to help us. Only help we get will be from others who still believe in our country and constitution.
Lawrence, The Sheeple were led by the inevitability theory
If Obama proves that Frank Marshall Davis is his "Real" daddy.....does that make him a "Natural Born Citizen"? I assume that Frank Marshall Davis "wuz" a Citizen of the USA just like mama. He may be going to pullout the DNA vial (-:) den what ??
Jesse Jackson may be "Jesse James" (-:)
