    Now Is Not The Time To Play It Safe

    Now Is Not The Time To Play It Safe

    Choices will have to be made soon, and chief among them is whether to tackle the debt problem head on and take the political risk, or not.

    I don’t see it as much of a risk.  Obama will not be defeated unless front and center is the damage to the nation from the national debt and the deficits, and the absolute abdication of duty by the Democrats.  Instead of 14 Wisconsin fleebaggers, we have an entire Democratic Party and President who have fled from the central issue of our generation.

    With the mass media on Obama’s side, milquetoast is not going to work.

    Obama is overplaying the bin Laden card big time, but he can’t help himself because it is the only achievement of his administration as to which he is on the side of the American people.  Every other supposed achievement — Obamacare, Stimulus, not sure what else — in fact was an abject failure and unpopular.

    Obama cannot ride bin Laden forever.  It’s the debt stupid.  And the big, ever expanding government which stifles job growth. 

    The Democrats think they are sitting pretty with stupid, childish commercials about Grandma being thrown off a cliff.

    Let them think NY-26 was their Virginia, New Jersy and Massachusetts.  Three sweeping wins in significant sized states versus a mere plurality in a messed up congressional race in which a fake Tea Party candidate served as spoiler.

    Now is not the time to play it safe.  Because safe is a guarantee of four more years of the worst President since the Great Depression.

    Well-stated, Professor, I've forwarded your link to many of my friends!!

    Ben (above) is correct

    That's why this stuff works. Democrats know that their target audience only has so much patience to listen to this stuff, so all they have to do is generate a constant drumbeat to make a few vicious lies the conventional wisdom, and generate enough static to drown out any real debate.

    I was privileged to spend a summer learning Public Relations during a Dale Carnegie course taught by a former Energy Utility executive. He said in order to get your point across to the average public, you have to make your point and get their attention within 15 seconds, because if you don't, that is when the public starts to tune you out, and within 30 seconds they have FULLY tuned you out.

    The "pulling the plug on Grandma" commercial works because it's an iconic idea that sets into the mind quickly. What we need to combat it with is a commercial that says:

    Medicare: 55 and older, NO CHANGE under Paul Ryan's Plan. Under do-nothing Democrats Medicare ENDS in 2017. Which do YOU prefer?

    Literally something simple like red text over a black background with a voice-over. Some repetition (especially during high-volume hours on network television and radio) and suddenly it will become the Democrat party who has to do the explaining.
