2. I know you’re responsible grown ups. But many of you have, or have been in, contact with teenagers. Channel your inner teen. Let them out of the basement and let them cut loose. Do what Mitt can’t do because he must be a grown up. Go all mocking and nasty. When the other side comes back at you – and they will – mock them mercilessly. Let them know not only are they not the cool kids anymore, but we are all laughing at their pocket protectors.
3. Just because you’re having fun teasing them on minor stuff, don’t forget the administration’s record. It’s indefensible. Remember Obama’s greatest nightmare is math. Remember the debt he’s piled on our children. Remember his socialist dreams of glory that led to a universal health care law that gives them power of life and death over a lot of us. Sure, mock Michelle Obama’s lunch initiative that is destroying innocent vegetables and starving children – but save a bit of high moralistic derision for her husband’s feckless handling of other nations, for his conviction that a world without the U.S. would be better. His actions are not only repugnant, they will be paid for with a river of blood by men and women whose boots he’s not fit to polish. We can be morally indignant and we should be. The moral high ground IS ours. Remind them of that. On their side, they have only corpses and ruin. Capitalism has lifted more people out of dire poverty than any other system in the history of man. Marxism has plunged more people into poverty and destroyed more countries than even feudal monarchy. Remind them of that.
Look, the reason the abortionpalooza of a Democratic convention gave Obama a bounce at all – to the extent it wasn’t made up in polls, which a lot of it was – is not the hagiographic treatment the MSM gave him: it’s you.
You looked at the polls and went all cowed and started talking about how Mitt was a bad candidate. And the MSM which, only a week before, had been talking about not being able to change the narrative, now realized THIS selective coverage and saturating the air waves worked. And they started doing it.
Since then you’ve been on the run. Even yesterday, after the release of that video which should mean the end of Obama’s presidency, many of you were saying: “We really shouldn’t say anything. This isn’t strong enough. The media will laugh at us.”
Who cares? If the media laughs at us, laugh right back. Don’t shut up. Don’t back down. They don’t have the influence they used to and our influence is growing. Stop imagining they’re some arbiter of the right and just. You behave like medieval peasants afraid to revolt against their Lord. Stop that. You’re Americans. We eat aristocrats for lunch and spit them out for afternoon tea.
“But we have no influence” you whine. No? Oh, please. Then why did they nix the “lady parts” campaign. Who takes their “war on women” seriously? And, btw, doesn’t everyone know about the blue dress and Clinton, which happened the media had a lot more power than now?
Yes, the media will spin the debates. Spin right back. Who was it that said “Get in their faces”? Yeah, let’s take THAT advice.
They bring a television to the fight, we bring a computer.
Don’t back down. We’re fighting for the future. We’re fighting for our children’s future. And we must win.
