Is this what the republican strategy has been reduced to?

    The republican strategy for the 2012 presidential election has lost the economy theme at least for the moment because the economy is not getting worse it's getting better however slowly.Social issues do not seem to be very rewarding to them as the gender gap has been getting wider in favor of the dems.Foreign policy has nothing right now that would favor the republiclowns.The hispanic vote has been lost at least for this election cycle. So it looks like all they have right now going for them is the 20 million dittohead rushlimbaugh/sean hannity listeners, and what Obama " might" do if he gets reelected, he hasn't done anything in the first three years to threaten anybody's second amendment right, but he might in the future,he hasn't at any point withdrawn or surrender precipitously either from Irak,or Afghanistan ,but he might in the future.He has made it very clear both publicly and privately that the US stands by the state of Israel even militarily if necessary,but he might abandon israel if it is attacked by Iran.There is an endless list of treacherous things the republiclowns are and will accuse president obama until election day but they only ring true in the ears of right wing nut extremists and the y kind of sound deranged to the ears of normal people.Where will the votes to win the election come from?The math doesn't add up.Shouldn't they at least be listening to Karl Rove who in a very subtle way so as not to embarrass them or sound negative
    has been warning them that they need to change course if they intend to win the elections?

      The Reoublicans never had a strategy since the Repulican Brand ran aground in 2008. They left the wheelhouse to the Tea Party. The Tea Party ran out of gas after they inserted their sleeper cell in the House of Congress. Their only hope in 2012 is control the House and senate and only allow their laws and bills to pass, inspite of the President. The underclass need to know civics 101 before the 2012 election to stop the decline of the American way.

          Yes, American way. The American way was unique, now it's fading away.

          Your candidate is toast, it will be a repeat of 2010 midterms. Obama is not wanted because he lied and lied.

      Obama hasn't done anything to the 2nd amendment except increase it and allow people to carry guns in National Parks. 

      Scare tatics are the only way the GOP can get votes.  Psychological studies have shown that when people feel afraid of a boogeyman, they are more likely to vote conservative.  The GOP is well aware of this, so it's not surprise they would make up lies to attempt a scare campaign.

        Don't they run the risk of overdoing it  and sound deranged to for example, independent voters?

    "A new report from the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, "Out of Balance: Cuts in Services Have Been States’ Primary Response to Budget Gaps, Harming the Nation’s Economy," places a spotlight on the right-wing assault on state budgets and the harmful effects of the growing trend of budget cuts."

      It's amazing how any attempt to reduce tax subsidies to the rich starts a concert of crying and lamenting on the part of republicans and is called class warfare but reducing any aspect of the safety net that helps the poor or anything that benefits the middle class is seen as fiscal responsibility .
