I was observing all of the Republicans great advice about how we need to get in touch with America... Flush Rush out of your head and listen for a minute; with only 3% of the country voting in various directions against Kerry, and only a little over 100,000 votes in Ohio separating him from the White House; this election was very, very close. The results, in my opinion, did not reflect a lack of touch with the American public, just a bad time to run for president. However, as some of you know by now, I'm a person who's willing to bite on the subject and give a rebuttal. HERE'S MY TOP FIVE ADJUSTMENTS THE DEMOCRATS NEED TO DO GET BACK ON TOP, BASED ON THIS HYPOTHESIS 5. Where are the democrat-based radio/web sites? Outnumbered 100 to 1, the democrats chose to get beaten up in these areas of the media. If you build it, they will come. If a liberal voices his/hers' opinion in a forrest, and no one's there to hear it, did it really make a sound? 4. Start the 2008 campaign NOW. That means hitting Bush every chance you get (that means every chance he messes up; trust me, you'll have plenty of chances). 3. E.T. GOOOO HOOOME!!! If I was the senator of Tennessee, you wouldn't find me in Washington unless there was a vote, or the state of the union address. You're a representative of your state; how can you understand your state's feelings when you're so far away. Go home, and eat your clam chowder, steak stew, shrimp creole, or in my case, barbeque ribs. 2. The state you're from MUST back you up. Gore lost Tennessee because he neglected "her", so "she" cheated; Kerry's state was not held in check (Gay Marriages), he won his state, but had lost votes in most of the other states. 1. BE YOURSELF That's it.
