Sadly though what they are recycling is old talking points:
RNC chair Michael Steele has unleashed a new attack on Obama, sending out a mass mailing attacking the President as part of the “blame America first” crowd, an apparent effort to prove to critics that he’s getting tougher with the opposition.
But this might be the most interesting part: The mailing links Obama’s claim that America has shown global “arrogance” with those infamous comments in Pennsylvania, charging that Obama “indicated disdain for small town and working Americans who ‘cling to guns or religion or antipathy to people who aren’t like them.’”
As it happens, Obama made those comments almost exactly a year ago.
When you have nothing then you must resort to trying the old tactics. Unfortunately for the GOP these tactics didn’t work for them on the first go around. Obama ended up winning Pennsylvania by an 11 point margin over McCain. Even with this so-called “mass insult”, the people of Pennsylvania still thought Obama was a better choice than their man.
So what does this say about Michael Steele and
his Rush Limbaugh’s party? That they have absolutely nothing to go on. They have no new idea, no new ways of thinking, and now they have no new attacks. Watching the slow death of the GOP is so painful, yet so entertaining.
