A Noble Strategy?

2 posts / 0 new

You're right, Thom. President Obama's strategy is noble. If we had an electorate who appreciated a noble strategy or if we had an opposition party that respected a noble strategy, then yes, I would applaud President Obama. But unfortunately we don't have either!!!

The Obama administration must stop this 'Romney isn't hiding the ball' nonsense; they must stop this 'we'll work with Republicans' nonsense. Everyone knows that Romey is being transparent about his policies; he's publicly said that corporations are people and has defended corporate personhood. Everyone knows that President Obama is willing to work with Republicans; he's been saying this for three years now. Obviously, these two memes are not working!!!

President Obama must do what you suggest, Thom. He must get out there and say that Republicans are obstructionist, that they want the economy to work for the 1%, not the 99%, that they would rather win an election than improve the nation, that they hate him and that he indeed welcomes their hatred.

He needs to show some passion and anger, he needs to show some backbone, he needs to stop acting like the little kid who tries to befriend the bullies and instead stand up to them.

The current American electorate doesn’t care about policies or about the records of politicians. If they did, Romney would only be poling between 30% to 40% nationally. They care about personality, passion, confidence, and a clear, simple vision for America. Candidate Obama covered all those bases, President Obama has not.

If he doesn’t change his tone and hit those bases again, he will lose in November.

The republicans are Lucy holding the football for Obama, Charlie Brown. Just like Charlie Brown he never seems to see it coming.

Bernie Sanders' big win in New Hampshire has given his campaign a big boost, but even Bernie knows that there's still a long primary season ahead.

One of the biggest criticisms about Bernie Sanders, one that I hear frequently from pro-Clinton callers, is that Bernie Sanders could be the next George McGovern.

And it's a serious criticism that's being thrown at Bernie.
