Here’s the hard thing Republicans have to do if they don’t want this crisis to go to waste: they have to ignore their id, the temptation of the sugar high of partisan point-scoring. They must willfully set aside Obama’s presence in the fray, leaving the short term personalized attacks on the table, and go after the much bigger prize. Obama isn’t running for office again. Liberalism is. Making this about him is a short term boost to the pleasure center of the conservative brain. Making this about the inherent falsehood of the progressive project will help conservatism win.

“Republicans and the Long Game,” by Ben Domenech in Real Clear Politics. Read the whole thing.

So we take the anti-Alinsky approach. Instead of picking the target, freezing it, personalizing it, and polarizing it, conservatives should make generalized unfocused platitudinous noises about curbing excessive government power, accountability for officials, and integrity in public administration.

Just like we've been doing for decades WITH ABSOLUTELY NOTHING TO SHOW FOR IT.

Advice from Domnech to conservatives is like advice from butchers to feeder cattle.
