Republicans - always on defense. Why? Because they are AFRAID they will offend, lose a vote, mis-speak, fall short of expectations, etc. And, they succeed in achieving all of their feared goals. Stand for what is right (Constitutional, proven to work, truly beneficial) instead of what is expedient (pandering to garner votes). Call the democrats liars - they are - and detail the lies. Republicans, "the party of the rich" - yes, we stand for principles that when applied will bring riches; democrats want to keep you in subjection. It is a target rich environment.
