    Has anyone else noticed something weird your local race ads?
    Here, we've got 3-4 Republican candidates who do not advertise their party in their TV ads!
    Now, I read this (was in my local paper but source is NYT).
    Is the Tea Party dead?
    Is obstructionism passe?
    Is cooperation this year's "I'll say anything to get elected then vote along party lines anyway" mantra?

    What do you make of GOP candidates claiming they "work with" Dems?
    Even when their own voting records belie that claim? … emityn.www

    "bipartisanship" - must have polled well in spot surveys.

    Fact checking is not part of Republican strategy in this election.
    The apparent Republican Platform is something like this:
    Making Obama a one term President is the highest priority, more important than America or Americans
    Obstruct any plan that Obama puts forth, especially if that plan helps people and makes Obama look good.
    Blame Obama for not cleaning up the mess the Bush team made quickly enough.
    Write laws that stop Blacks and minorities from voting because they vote Democratic.
    Say anything to get people to vote for you, lies repeated are believed.
    Remind people that Obama is black
    Convince people that Obama is a Muslim
    Convince people that Obama is not "one of us"
    Rely on misinformation, lies and voter ignorance to promote yourself or your candidate
    Offer no specific plans, keep plans and taxes a secret
    Invoke God as often as possible but worship Ayn Rand's atheist philosophy
    In short, this is the worst Republican campaign and candidate of my lifetime (I'm 62).
    The Bush team wasn't even at the convention yet they want to return to Bush policies.

      Of course they do!!
      It's their game.
      Obama's like the halftime show where they plan the wardrobe malfunction so that's all anyone will remember.

      Not in any way to denigrate or oversimplify what he's done.
      Just trying to find an analogy.
