    Once the GOP primaries are over, the election begins in earnest.

    What will Republicans run on?

    America knows who wrecked the economy.

    That Republicans hid the cost of the wars from the country.

    That the bulk of the deficit comes from the Bush tax cuts, the "drugs for votes" bill and the unnecessary war.

    Bush and the Republicans held both houses and the presidency for six straight years. They have nothing to be proud of during that entire time. In fact, they even let Bin Laden go.

    You can't run on, "We have to get Obama out of office because he (and then name Republican failure)". This isn't the "Reagan Legacy Project". People remember who did what.

    There is a strategy called, "Just that one fact alone".

    Obama took us out of Iraq, just that one fact alone.....

    Obama saved the auto industry, just that one fact alone.....

    Obama got Bin Laden, just that one fact alone.....

    Obama made it possible for people to insure their collage age children, just that one fact alone....

    Obama helped extend unemployment for suffering Americans, just that one fact alone....

    Republicans can't use that strategy. It would backfire.

    There were no WMD's. Just that one fact alone....

    Republicans helped the Chamber of Commerce to move millions of jobs to China. Just that one fact alone....

    A Republican apologized to BP. Just that one fact alone....

    Republicans did nothing for those Katrina survivors. Just that one fact alone.....

    Republicans say disaster victims low priority. Just that one fact alone....

    See how this is a strategy that will work for Obama but not for Republicans.

    So please, someone explain to me what they will run on. Once you hit the general election, the truth will come out.

    They will run on eliminating the Obamination of Obamacare, less government regulation, lower taxes, a strong foreign policy. Just as they always do.

    As for who caused the housing meltdown, lets not forget the sticky fingers of Barney Frank, Chris Dodd, Jamie Goerlick and all those nice folks at Goldman Sachs who gave all that money to Obama so he could cover their losses and turn them into gains

    Republicans will run on fear as usual, subtract phantom fears from the republican platform and there is nothing left at all, no optimism, no hope, not even love for country.

    Actually Romney will run on "competence". I bet none of Mitt's Budgets get ZERO votes.

    Barry Hussein is the freaking president. Unless they are complete Alinsky converts democrats must understand that they have to take responsibility for the last three years and understand that the democrat party had the majority in congress when Fannie Mae went under.

    Obamacare. Just that one fact alone will be used against Obama.

    Also, Obama said he should be held accountable if he did not get the economy going. Well, unemployment is still in the crapper, and if it still is in November, that one fact alone will sink him.
