THEY DRINK OUR MILKSHAKE

Looks like I'm not the only one who's annoyed about granting the Democrats their premises...

(Via CG) Dr. Melissa Clouthier asks who owns the Republican brand:

I’ve got bad news: The opposition owns the Republican brand. Oh yes, they do. Democrats define Republicans and the Republicans accept the definition by operating from their false premises.

How do I know Republicans are owned by the Left? Because the Republican message is consistently negative and defensive: "I’m not mean." "We don’t believe that." "I’m not extremist like them". And by them, Republicans are defining themselves against the press-Obama-grassroots caricature of Republicans. In doing so, the Republicans with a national voice diminish their own party.

The Republicans will never be strong until they stop operating from a defensive position.

"I'm not mean" We also have to stop apologizing for being who we are.  Do I agree with every single conservative policy? Hell. No. But the only way we can take back any political ground is by being a united voting block.

I grew up in the Reagan era, I used to think Republicans were mean people too. Now I am one. Technically anyway, I would rather call myself Republican than Conservative anyway. Less chance of starting an argument where I live.

Our whole political situation reminds me of that anti-Bush bumper sticker I used to see all the time: If you are not outraged you are not paying attention.
