Embracing the Party of No: Sample Talking Point

In a previous post, I endorsed the party of No.  Here's a sample talking point to demonstrate how it will work:

My fellow Americans, are you as insulted by our 44th President as I am?  He wants us to capitulate to his agenda when we know it's bad for our country.  If President Obama wants to demand capitulation to his agenda, he should know the silent majority of Americans disagree with him.  Just a few examples:

The Silent Majority of Americans reject bailouts.

The Silent Majority of Americans reject Health Care Rationing.

The Silent Majority of Americans reject Energy Tax Hikes.

Do you support the the Obama Administration OVER America's silent majority?

Remember: It's crucial to make the public hate the other guy more

I'm sorry, but I disagree. 

I'm sorry, but I disagree.  Opposition is important, of course, but it's not enough.  You have to stand for something, not just be against things.  And you have to be sincere about what you stand for.  For too long, Republicans have acted contrary to their overall message.  That has to stop.  Oppose, yes, but represent something, and do it through ACTION.

I agree with DD.

Following Cahnman's advise is precisely why Republicans have lost the last two elections. If we had affordable health care, the Democrats couldn't now be winning with the issue. 

The bailouts would have been and still maybe a successful policy the Republicans can address. The problem is, many of its legislative leaders implicated themselves in their support of TARP, and the corporate leadership of the Republican party isn't necessarily opposed to government bailouts at taxpayer's. For an example, did anyone at the recent NCNA meeting take the opportunity to address their strong opposition to any of the bailouts?

Actually,  Energy Tax Hikes is the only issue that can be successfully contered by a successful Republican campaign. I say, let's go for it.
