This is bizzarro world. In any type of a sane world today, the Republicans would be winning. Even with the overwhelming liberal bias of the drive by media, the Republicans should be cruising towards a landslide.
Why aren’t the Republicans winning?
There are a couple of winning messages for the Republicans this year. You would expect the drive by media to do their best to keep these messages from getting out. That is not hard for the drive by media to do when the Republicans are not even making these arguments.
The first is the simple argument, are you better off now than you were six years ago?
Six years ago, the Republicans controlled not only the White House, but also the House and Senate. What was the world like back then?
Well the media is not going to remind us but unemployment was at 4.6%. There was a time where economists said anything under 5% unemployment was impossible because 5% unemployment was considered full employment.
Six years ago, 90% of college graduates had jobs after graduation.
Today, if you believe the numbers from the Obama Regime, unemployment is almost twice what it was back then. Half of college graduates remain unemployed after graduation. They face a devastating debt load from the student loan debt bubble courtesy of the liberals.
Today gas prices are twice what they were when Obama took over.
This is a simple message. Why aren’t the Republicans using it?
The Obama, Pelosi, Reid axis of fiscal evil is spending America into bankruptcy. Yet most of the money is wasted. Last year, the IRS paid out $21 billion dollars in fraudulent tax refunds.
A billion here and a billion there, pretty soon you are talking real money.
This is just one example of government waste. How about a million dollars for a genital washing study? There was half a billion for Solyndra. Every year, the government is losing hundreds of billions of dollars in waste, fraud and duplicated services.
Why aren’t the Republicans talking about this?
This kind of waste offends 95% of all Americans. Even people who believe in massive government spending are offended when tax dollars are stolen.
The General Accountability Office just released a report showing that Amtrak employees are stealing between $4 and $7 million a year from the government-subsidized railroad. The government is doing nothing about it.
Amtrak has lost almost a billion dollars on its food service in the last decade. Why aren’t the Republicans talking about this?
The Democrats want to scream about the rich paying their “fair share” of taxes. When that happens, the Republicans stumble around trying to find lame excuses to avoid the disaster of raising taxes in the middle of the Great Obama Depression. How about hitting back on all of the waste and fraud in government?
Pointing out how well America was doing six years ago and all of the fraud and waste of the Obama Regime is a simple winning message.
Do the Republicans want to win?
If they do, perhaps they could start acting like it.
