I don’t have time to write a long post right now, so I’m sending you over to PJ Media, where Daniel Sosa takes Republicans to task with a piece called Why Conservatives are Worried: There’s No One to Stop Obama. It begins:
I just about spit out my coffer listening to Art Laffer the other day. He forecast a big GOP win in the 2014 midterms. He cited past elections as his metric. What a buffoon. How can someone with such intelligence on economics read politics and the reality on the ground so wrong? Obama was just re-elected with the worst economy since the Great Depression, a world in chaos, and debt and deficits as far as the eye can see. The fact is, Obama is different. He’s Teflon. Nothing sticks to him. Granted he has a corrupt press to carry his water. But still this cat is different. Mr. Obama isn’t interested in doing work for a living. His previous experience was as a community organizer.
I’ll have more to say about how the GOP could communicate better. Sosa’s article lays down some good guidelines and suggestions for a start.
