Steve Israel, New DCCC Chairman, Set To Go On ‘Offense’ For House Democrats
“Israel argues that the Republican-redistricting-dominance story line is overplayed because the party picked up so many seats this fall, not only making it tougher for the GOP to draw Democrats out of districts but also creating potential intraparty squabbles over the lines. ”
This sort of short-sighted thinking is why the republicans keep outmaneuvering the democrats.
Save the BS for the vegetable garden, Steve, and give the people what they want – honesty.
Big promises provide target practice for the other side, and disillusionment for yours. We are tired of big talk and small action. Very tough times are ahead for the lower 98, and it gets worse by the month as long as conservative propaganda dominates the public perceptions.
Rule #1: Never give a fact-checker the opportunity to call you wrong.
Stick to the facts and statistics like glue. Keep the embellishments to a minimum.
Rule #2: No overreaching promises.
Set aggressive, attainable goals. We need a Daedalus, not an Icarus.
Rule #3: No Headbutting.
You get into a battle of words, conservative media will bury you. Challenge the policies. Let the public challenge the personalities.
Rule #4: Draw a picture, show your work.
No he-said/she-said. Don’t just draw a conclusion, show how you arrived at it. Give the facts and statistics in a Main Street friendly way. You won’t convince us if we cannot follow your reasoning, don’t believe it, or consider it BS.
