RNC document caricatures Obama, appeals to fear

By JIM KUHNHENN
Associated Press Writer



WASHINGTON (AP) -- Barack Obama is "The Joker." Nancy Pelosi is portrayed as Cruella De Vil, and Harry Reid as Scooby Doo - all part of a Republican Party pitch to top fundraisers.

Tucked into the 72-page Power Point presentation to GOP fundraisers in Boca Raton, Fla., last month, was a direct call to exploit "extreme negative feelings" toward Democrats using tactics that even Republican leaders said were out of line.

"What can you sell when you do not have the White House, the House or the Senate...?" one slide asks.

"Save the country from tending toward Socialism!" it replies.

Political groups and parties often use highly charged language to motivate their base of voters and contributors. But the RNC document is unusual in revealing a strategy in such candid detail.

Republicans tried Thursday to disassociate themselves from the imagery and language of the presentation, which was first reported by the Politico news Web site.


Hmmm...so bad that republicans are running away from this one!

This guy's "looking like a fool with his pants on the ground!"

This represents a very bad trajectory in American politics, that ill-serves a democracy.

"true believers", "fear", "extreme negative feeling", "ego". You gotta love it. Funny, no mention of "ideas" or "good policy".

To this, I give you the infamous UB, with some minor alterations of course...:



What the hell is with you??? Nothing ever stands on it's own? Nobody ever needs to be responsible in your eyes? It all must be 'comparative'?

As a child, were you the one that always said, "But Tommy did it first."...or "how come you aren't spanking Judy...she did it too."

Did you always play the 'it-was-the-other-guy-too' card? Anything to lesson the blame or responsibility!

Hey!..if it whines like a RIGHTY, and snivels and tattles like a RIGHTY...why not fess up to it? Your in the same category as BILL O'REILLY. He thinks he's an unbiased newsman. He tells himself that often enough, he actually believes it. Same for HANNITY, and GLENN BECK.


As you constantly make excuses for and fawn over every RIGHTY in the legislature AND EVERY RIGHTY PAST PRESIDENT, while always bringing up the faults of the MAJORITY party and how unfair everthing is because they didn't get reprimanded as much as your guys did.

NOT UB

Yep, that's pretty daggone sad. What I think is more sad, however, is that in order to reach and influence the majority of voters in our country, you have to play on these emotions. I firmly believe that the average voter is not educated enough about the important issues to make a decision based on them. It is evident every time I get some BS email about Obama is doing this or that and it spreads like wildfire. 9 times out of 10, I will check snopes or do a little research and very little of the email is based in fact, but those who blindly forward it to eveyone in their contact list don't GARA about the truth.

Basically, I think that the majority of American voters are not _________ (insert educated, informed, intelligent, concerned, etc) enough to move beyond voting based on emotions.

Seems like this is mostly about how the RNC is approaching their constituents and funders. Perhaps you are missing this point?

Hi Roger,
Oops! You guys have associated bringing up the past with Roger so much, and pointing out how pathetic that is, I just got you confused! :confused:

Oh, I foget the hyprocisy. It O0000-KKKKKKK when it suits YOUR needs to bring up the past, just not anyone else is allowed to!

thank you for reminding me of that. Oh, I almost forget to mention that your hypocritical counterattack did NOTHING to address the tactics of the RNC, that even its OWN members are running from!

Next time, try a little salt with the crow. It helps it go down easier.

So what is not true about that statement?

There are few who have the R by their name on the ballot who represent their constituents :o. As that statement may be a little deep for you Doc, that means those running away are probably RINO's & need repalacing.

Forgive them Lord, for they know no better :-P.

Well good thing the dems never called W a Nazi or anything, and really good that they never portrayed Palin as anything bad because then it would really be hard to throw stones. Then again this is a party that calls its own F’ing retards. Go figure

How could I expect anything less from a mental midget without an original thought. Must be difficult to be a socialist in a conservative state, although you did move into the part of the state that wants to be Minnesooooota.

Next time you desire to 'revise' one of my posts, let me know, and I'll return your childish PM with all the 4-letter words you were so adept at spelling; you can revise that for all to witness and revel in your vast vocabulary.

I appreciate the personal attack.

Keep up the good work.

Geez Buzz....please don't re-post Beck's, I mean UB's, posts. Just when I learned the "ignore" button, and POTUS was enjoyable again, you had to publish that guy's hate speech and romper-room level attacks! There are many on this list who I butt heads with ferociously, but at the end of the day can laugh with, appreciate humorous jabs, and would toss a beer back with any day. But he crosses the line of decency, so I put him in the "cyber-corner". (ie...ignore list) Besides, I occasionally flip on Fox and get all that rhetoric first hand. Don't need to have it regurgitated via links.

And what YOU did had nothing personal about it? Just because I'm divulging the truth, you call it a personal attack.

Kinda like the laughable sig line you use from Trotsky, as if we are to consider you now as being in the erudite crowd...but I'm pretty sure you only wanted to call others hypocrites, before they used the phrase on you. Calling others hypocrites doesn't erase the fact of your pretentiousness.

As Obamaites go, you are one of the finest. Is there any chance of you going back to Michigan? You fit in so much better back there.

BTW, coming from you, I consider a personal attack as a badge of honor, since I doubt you are capable of much else. Always nice to be worthy.

And for the record, I believe it was YOU that called me out...albeit in defense of your sawbones buddy who has the intelligence of putting my posts on ignore, which suits me just fine. Nothing I can say or prove or make believable will ever enter his psysche since it's not been proven he has any.

But keep trying. Now that your leaders are about to ruin the last bastion of freedom on this planet, there won't be any need for me to rattle your chain and remind you how many of us were telling you what is about to happen.

When the current administration shows some "ideas" that promote "good policy," I'm sure they will be acknowledged.

So far, they're paddling against a current that is getting stronger. Ignoring the will of the people on issues such as health care will not bode well beginning in November....too bad it has to come to that.
