    Just for conservatives, what do you think they should do to enhance their chance of winning this fall?

    I think they should get more press time or be on more talk shows that would fair in their questions. I would avoid the more liberal talk shows, but be on Fox, CNN and perhaps some short local interviews where they stop along the way.

    Start releasing more campaign ads. Do more unscripted talks with people at local restaurants. Rescue a few people from burning cars.

    Yup. Hit the talk show circuit big time and talk about the economy, jobs, the deficit, the debt and Barry's signature legislation, Obamacare.

    Romney and Ryan should hammer Barry and his dim witt VP on those issues.

    After all. Barry did say that if he couldn't fix things in one term he sure as hell didn't deserve another.

    Amen.

    Nothing is going to help them, especially not increased media exposure, so far it has been a bad thing for him to take unscripted questions or appear in everyday settings he is unfamiliar with.

    Release your tax returns. It is hurting you more than you think.

    .

    Picking Ryan was risky. That said, now that he's there, I agree that he (not Romney) should be on every possible radio and TV talk show. He's personable, good looking, knows his stuff (whether you agree with him or not) and presents it in a way that's understandable. That's precisely the kind of messenger needed.

    I stopped by Maddow last night, and she literally said that Ryan "wants to kill Medicare". He should even visit her.

    Then let the people decide.

    1) Offer to release tax returns, college transcripts, report cards, employee reviews, health records, driving records, court records, and everything else.. the very moment Obama agrees to do the same... they want to scream vetting and disclosure and transparency, don't just put it on their terms being used for class warfare
    2) Economy, economy, economy.. give specifics, give facts, show a complete plan, and hammer it over and over again
    3) Watch for the distraction tactics.. don't let them take you off focus
    4) Forget about the rabid Obamabots, they will not be swayed even if the fucker sprouts horns... focus on the concerns of the middle and independents and even if your plan is not in total sync with what they want, EXPLAIN it and explain why... don't use wishy washy vagueness and platitudes

    The follow-up question is his mortal enemy, he will not just be able to just go around selling his "plans" without having to defend them from pointed questions and this he fails miserably.

    Either way, it's their best shot. Otherwise, Ryan's just walking around with a target on his back. May as well be proactive.
