  •  AND WHY ARE THEY PERCEIVED THAT WAY (0+ / 0-)

    BECAUSE THEY ARE. THE SOLUTION THEY ARE EMBRACING IS TO HIDE THEIR SCARY, NARROW MINDED AND OUT OF TOUCH IDEAS SO WE ONLY LEARN ABOUT THEM WHEN THEY ARE GOVERNING. MIKE PENCE DID THAT IN INDIANA AND WAS ELECTED GOVERNOR. HE WAS SPOUTING HATE AND TRICKLE DOWN WHEN HE COMPETED WITH MICHELLE BACHMAN FOR LEADERSHIP OF THE TEA PARTY CAUCUS BUT WHEN HE DECIDED TO RUN FOR GOVERNOR HIS TONE SHIFTED, DROPPING ONLY AN OCCASIONAL CODE WORD TO ASSURE HIS BASE BUT OTHERWISE RUNNING ADS THAT WERE DEVOID OF ISSUES AND PAINTING HIM AS THE NICEST NEIGHBOR YOU COULD EVER HAVE. SO THE PLAN WILL BE TO CHANGE THE MESSAGING. AVOID TALKING ABOUT YOUR EXTREME AGENDA AND THE DUMMIES WILL ELECT YOU.
