    Well, it's clear the GOP strategy is to just deny any numbers or events that contradict their narative.

    I wonder if it will work?

    Hard to do when your own party is (rightfully so) sharing how well things are going in their neck of the woods. :)

    Hard yes .... but I haven't seen the radical fringe get deterred by substance or fact as of yet.

    Right, but you said GOP strategy, which is what the party does or will do, and the lunatic fringe does not represent them.

    Honestly BDBoop, the line is beginning to blur from what I see. Yes, I know for certain that there are plenty of Republicans who are not radical right zealots. But it seems to me that increasingly they are being driven underground. The squeaky wheels on the far right are being allowed to drive the bus way too much. Pledge signings, theatrical votes ...

    They fall in line with the radical right's disinformation campaigns all too easily.

    I know it happens on the far left too - but I haven't seen Blue Dog Democrats suffer or be threatened nearly as much as it seems to happen to moderate Republicans.

    Another failed thread that attempts to paint the GOP as wanting a bad economy.

    Right now, Biden and Obama are on the charge for gay rights. Before that it was the so called war on women.

    The economy may be doing well locally.......in states that will vote overwhelmingly for Romney anyway.

    But, things like the looming debt ceiling will only serve to highlite what a failure this president has been.

    He's a one termer.

    The line is blurred, yes; but I can't see it becoming permanent. At some point, Republicans are going to want to take their party back.

    No it's not. The party was dragged to the far right. Many, MANY Repubublicans want their party back. And I believe they will get it.
