Once again, I begin with a quote from a 21st Century Democrats email newsletter:

Republicans were " handed some good news - which isn't a good thing!
Results from a Washington Post/ABC poll show that for the first time in more than 4 years, GOP candidates run evenly to Democrats on who they trust to handle the nation's biggest problems amongst registered voters!
Democrats had a 12-point advantage just three months ago - and that is why this election ... got a lot tougher.

Because the Democrats believe that honesty is the best policy, and because they absolutely hate to get into the roll up your sleeves and get your hands dirty type of politics, they were losing ground quickly.

Now, I am not suggesting that the Democrats use the same tactics as the Republicans.  The Republicans and their Mini-me Tea Party, use the Big Lie tactic.  Tell a Big enough lie, often enough, and soon people will believe it.  In addition, the Republicans have been working with this as their guiding light for years now, so they're quite good at it.

What the Democrats need to do is really rather simple. President Obama has begun to counter the Republicans in the right way, and the rest of the Democratic Party has to start using the same approach:  fight back with the truth immediately.

Reality Update for the 2012 election:  The DEMs have stepped into the ring, and taken off the kid gloves, exchanging them for real brass knuckles " along with brass in other parts of their anatomy.  They have heard the clarion call of the people who actually want them to win the next presidential election, and have started fighting fire with the best thing they could do:  remove all the air from the fire, choking it to death.

The Democrats are now telling the American People just how much the Republicans have been lying to them.  DEMs are showing the citizens how much the GOP uses FUD - Fear, Uncertainty, and Dread, to scare voters into voting for Republicans.  The problem is that the news media, the Internet, and Social Media all show the truth which, like a silver bullet to a werewolf, is deadly to the GOP.

To add insult to injury, the GOP brought out a gaggle of geese, or clowns, who routinely came pouring out of a clown car to " how do we say it? " debate each other.  One would think they were not of the same party.

Do not forget -- the Republicans have vowed to do anything and everything they can do to make President Obama fail.  They have admitted that they don't have any positive ideas to help put the country back on its feet, and take the World Leadership back again.  Remember too that George W. Bush was still in office when the economy went belly-up.  It is a matter of record that Bush took the largest surplus this country ever had, which was amassed by the Clinton administration, and turned it into the largest deficit this country has ever seen!  And what took Clinton and his people 8 years to build up, Bush ruined in fewer than 4 years.  Not to mention Bush put the United States at war in two separate foreign nations, with one on the side, promising that the oil profits from Iraq would underwrite the costs of the war in Iraq.

Never happened, did it?  Amazing, is it not?

Still, the Republicans are trying to blame the deficit, and the economic problems, on the Obama administration.  This in itself is amazing, given that President Obama didn't take office until the end of January 2009, but the Republicans made it look as if he started the slide downwards in the late 2008 period.

How is that possible, when he wasn't even President yet?

This shows you just how deeply the Republicans will go into the manure pile, just to make themselves look good.  What amazes most of all is how the GOP continues to lie about President Obama's citizenship and religion.

Another example of Fear, Uncertainty, and Dread!

So, next time the Republicans start to make themselves look like heroes, check the news, and watch Crying Man Boehner, and stick up his patoot, McConnell, to see if they are lying.  How you know is when their lips are moving.
