The problem is, there are too many liberal Republicans who agree with Obama's agenda and too many Republican wusses afraid of any kind of confrontation.
Republicans may just get lucky. When the country dives off the fiscal cliff, Obama and the Democrats MAY get the blame in spite of the big media, big education, and big church propaganda machine.
It is important to realize politics is secondary. No one can govern against widely held perceptions. Our movement needs to focus on communications--on educating the public whose ignorance of economics, history, and political philosophy is pathetic. This can only be done effectively via visual and auditory media.
