    experience shows that unless it's cut and dried with us standing up for the interests of individual Americans, the Reds have proven effective at using any space to our left to their advantage. Romney couldn't pull it off, but the 2010 Tea Party sure did. We can't leave them any room on our left! Just say no to nuance. It's great for governing, but a sure way to make sure you won't be governing if you try it in your campign. We take back the HR only if we nationalize the election with a message that turns out our base. Obama and Pelosi both seem determined to piss off the base, a serious step in the wrong direction. Following them down the path they've shown to date is, I hate to say, a fool's errand.

    We need to make them stop pissing off their base!

      Just who do you mean by the "base?"

      That's always confused the heck out of me as it sometimes seems to depend on whom is speaking.
