Mendacious Mitt and Lyin’ Ryan…now frantically move to the middle, so that they will not appear to be so extreme. Simple advise to the Democrats: Don’t engage them about what they are now saying their policies are. Tie them to them to the concrete facts that cannot be denied. Tie them to their platform, and tie them to bills approved by the house and state legislatures controlled by Republicans.
First, Democratic speechwriters and candidates should know the Republican National platform chapter and verse. It is a MANIFESTO for all Republicans anywhere, and it is the blessed product of those who are currently in, or who aspire to be in the U.S. Congress. That manifesto will control what is put forth for legislation, and as the powerful Grover Norquist has said, “The Congress will control the policy agenda. All that they need is someone with enough opposable disgits to hold a pen to sign legislation.” Does he not understand how the congress is held in contempt?
Second, understand that the Republicans have held the WHOLE COUNTRY hostage…not just during and since the debt ceiling talks. They have done it since the day the president was innaugurated! Books have been written, and participants do not refute, that their strategy has been to deny this administration ANY politcal or legislative success. They should be ashamed.
Remember, the Republican congress has only a 12% approval rate, and if Romney wins, they WILL DO JUST WHAT THEY SAY THEY WILL DO. They will pass legislation that the American public despises! We can trust the Republicans to be just what they say they are, and the public needs to know it.
Most people cannot comprehend the voter suppression efforts, as orchestrated by new ID laws, court challenges, attacks on the League of Women Voters, Acorn, etc. These Republicans have passed vaginal probe ultrasound bills and laws declaring a fertilized egg to be a person. Yet they do not acknowledge global warming, the need for green energy, road building, etc. People cannot believe Republicans would really pass such legislation! But they have, they will, and a President Romney will sign it! He has just enough opposable digits!
