MAYBE they could have siphoned off a little bit of the few foolish "troo believers" who were involved in Occupy when it started, but that was just a flash in the pan. Those people were simply R-U-N-N-O-F-T by the Occupiers in the first few weeks, and they're nowhere to be found these days; they've probably actually gone out and gotten jobs rather than sitting around wallowing in their own misery.
It's not fertile ground any more when it comes to voters. Voters' memories just aren't that long.
When you left the last time you wanted more government regulation in telecom, energy and internet, you threw a fit and left because you were being called on it. I can undelete your farewell post if you like. I honestly don't have any idea where you fit in politically other than Contrarian.
As I said, I genuinely feel 2012 is going to be about who can energize the base. As long as the rank and file conservatives find it their solemn duty to be unnecessarily mean and nasty towards liberals for no other reason than having a good laugh at someone else's expense, all that's going to do is galvanize people who quite honestly are ready to bail on Obama. Perhaps this is a reaction to McCain's "kid gloves" approach in '08, but there is a huge difference between going after Obama's policies and this liberals are the scum of the earth blah blah business.
Just my 2c on how to beat Obama.
And let me get this straight. First you nominate the Massachusetts moderate, then you want to run a campaign that deliberately destroys any sort of ability to reach across the aisle. yeah, great plan.
So who exactly do you intend to get excited about voting for the Republican nominee?
