I don't want you to divert the conversation into marriage, gays, abortion, religious freedom, contraception, god's place in your life or anything else. It's a loser and there is no persuading anyone. The republican party will lose the independents--they will walk away or stay home in droves come November. And we will lose the presidential election BY A LANDSLIDE. You've got to focus--making Obama a one-term president. Just for the next few months quick dicking around with the private choices of the people and get back on message and address the big picture, the main event. And if you can't get the radical right to cooperate at least have the balls to kick them to the curb and deal with the consequences. Nobody wants you in their personal lives--you aren't qualified for that duty.
(OK, back to our regularly scheduled political programming....)
Well I must say I agree. Oh and by the way... If you're trying to be president it's probably not a good idea to scapegoat and completely write off half of the electorate as lazy moochers. Especially don't do it while pandering to super rich out of touch doners. It just looks bad. And even though you have utter contempt for them, you never know, you just might need those lazy moocher's votes in a pinch.
