    Seriously, what else are they going to run on?

    The American people don't see even more tax cuts for the wealthy as the way to go.

    "Prosperity though lower wages" doesn't resonate.

    Outlaw birth control? Seriously?

    Slash education? What about the kids?

    Medical bills are the number one cause of bankruptcy so "no health care" is not something the average American sees as a "right". Instead, they see it as a "problem".

    Republicans should stay away from foreign policy. After all, they let Bin Laden go. Obama not only took out Bin Laden, but most of the al Qaeda leadership. And did it no matter where Bin Laden was. Which was against Republican policy.

    End the EPA? Like Michelle Bachmann said she would during the presidential debates? Seeing what's going on in China, a country that is now number one in birth defects, that seems like a losing strategy.

    So what's left? What will Republicans run on that will be a "winning hand"?

    We want to know.

    Attacking the worst and most corrupt admin in our lifetime is a worthy cause.

    I don't think you guys want to run on that. 4 years ago the economy was tanking and we were bleeding jobs. Fewer people had access to health care, we were mired in Iraq and Afghanistan and Bin Laden was still out there.

    I'm pretty sure they will run on a platform of simple fiscal responsibility and Barack Obama's economic record and his total LACK of fiscal responsibility.

    Obama will try to make the race about anything OTHER than his record...but hey, can you really blame the guy?

    That also cuts both ways. For a lot of people, including myself, the answer is yes and republicans are not able to take a shred of credit, not that I give any president the entire blame or credit for the state of the economy.

    Oh, and Deanie? Did you want to tell me which Republican it was that said they wanted to get rid of the first black American President before he was even elected? You seemed to RUN AWAY from that thread as soon as you were asked to back up that claim.

    You want to know? Actually I know you don't really want to know but here goes anyway:

    Lots of things, but for brevity (that means I'm trying to keep this short) I'll just say we are running on "We're not obama". That is all that is necessary.

    The American people know that we aren't looking to give tax cvuts to just the wealthy, we want tax cuts to everyone.

    People know that you cannot "spend your way to prosperity".

    People know that that is a lie.

    Since the 50s more and more money is being spent on education yet kids in the US have fallen further and further behind. Money =/= education.

    Wrong. Americans see rising healthcare costs are a problem but they are smart enough to know that government control of healthcare is exactly the wrong way to go. That is why a majority of Americans are against obamacare.

    So obama's foreign policy is killing?

    Saying obama took out Bin Laden is a stupid as saying Richard Nixon landed on the moon. The GOP didn't let Bin Laden go, it was the efforts of the GOP that culminated in the intel that allowed the military to find out where he was.

    So now Michelle Bachmann is the entire GOP now?

    We will run on the fact that obama is a failure and his policies are corrupt and ruinious. Unfortunately this cuntry is infested with brain-dead lefties like you who will vote for anything with a "D" after it's name.

    Another in a long line of fail rdean threads.
