WINNING THE POLITICAL PROPAGANDA WAR

If Republicans continue to lose presidential elections it won’t be only because they failed to garner a sufficient percentage of the growing Hispanic, Asian and African-American vote; it will be because they continue to lose the propaganda war.  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

WILL SARAH PALIN RUN AGAIN FOR OFFICE?

sarah-palin-cpac-2013

Sarah Palin has remained in the national spotlight ever since she ran with John McCain in the 2008 presidential election; although the intense media coverage and liberal attacks on her had dropped off considerably until MSNBC’s Martin Bashir advocated that someone defecate in her mouth. With rumors that Mrs. Palin may run for a Senate seat in Alaska in 2014 or that she might run for president in 2016, this is a good time to ask if Palin will run again for office and if she has matured and developed sufficiently as a politician to win either of those elections.  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

OBAMACARE: ONE OF THE BIGGEST POLITICAL MISTAKES IN AMERICAN HISTORY

No matter how the U.S. Supreme Court rules on Obamacare this week, the progressive movement’s massive overreach with healthcare reform likely will go down as one of the biggest political mistakes in American history.  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

Look out American women; Republicans are going to confiscate your contraceptives, cut your pay, revoke your voting rights, and put your children in re-education camps.  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

CONSERVATIVES VS. PROGRESSIVES 2012

As conservatives prepare to do battle with President Barack Obama and progressives in the 2012 election campaign, do conservatives really know what they are up against, or are they setting themselves up for another defeat?

Judging from the way the battle is shaping up so far, despite the lessons learned from Barack Obama’s defeat of John McCain in the 2008 election and three years of the progressive army at work, you have to question if the Republican candidates for president and the conservative cognoscenti yet really know their “enemy.”  (Read the full column at EWRoss.com)

“I LIKE PALIN, BUT I WOULD NEVER VOTE FOR HER FOR PRESIDENT”

How many times have you heard someone say, “I like Sarah Palin, but I could never vote for her for president”? If Gov. Palin jumps into the presidential race next month as most now expect, how can she change the minds of enough people who think this way to win the Republican Party’s nomination and, if so, the general election?

Her critics on the left and the right believe she can’t overcome her negatives and won’t change many minds. She won’t win the Republican nomination, and if by some chance she did, she wouldn’t win the general election.

Palin’s supporters say that no one should underestimate Palin. She is a masterful retail politician; and once she starts campaigning and people listen to her side by side with her with her Republican rivals, many will change their minds. They argue that she can win the nomination and defeat Barack Obama.

Most of these predictions, however, are wishful thinking; and hope is not a strategy. If “candidate” Palin is going to change the minds of those whose minds may be changeable, she and her supporters have to focus on specific groups with targeted appeals. (More)

THE 2012 ELECTION: Handicapping Sarah Palin

Republicans will do very well in the November elections. They almost certainly will take control of the House. If this is a “wave” election, they could capture the Senate as well. Control of Congress, however, is only half the battle. If Republicans want to completely blunt the Obama agenda and set the country on a different course, they must win the White House in 2012. To do that, they need the right nominee; and, like her or not, the potential Republican presidential candidate talked about more than any other is Sarah Palin.  (More)
