After being caught flat-footed by tea-party insurgents in 2010, allowing candidates like Delaware's Christine O'Donnell and Nevada's Sharron Angle to win the GOP nomination and then self-destruct--the Republican establishment,is taking a different approach

Some strategy, advertising and more advertising. I don't watch political ads and I wonder if anyone really decides on their candidate from the mountains of bull that pours from the advertising machines. That is not a strategy, that is the same old game. The GOP's card up their sleeve, horrendous new voter laws, is back firing as each state finds that judges rule against them.

As long as it doesn't work I don't care what they do. Not many "thinking" people take political ads seriously. That means all those FAUX Noise followers eat it up like free food!

I believe most people are serious on who they vote for and who they know will do the job. There always will be some who don;t even know when they go to the poll's!
Thank You Carrie

It amazes me how people in the South are voting for the very people who want to keep the South in poverty. Sort of like if slaves had taken up arms with the Confederacy against the Union. For me, there is no question that anyone who supports a Republican Party candidate in this day and age is supporting corporate conglomerates who are trying to rape this country of everything it has and never pay any taxes to it for the privilege of doing so. They lie to the people about how big government is taking over when it is actually big corporations that are taking over. The people don't pay high taxes. And the corporations pay NO taxes. How can that be sustainable? We need public services. And public services are paid for with taxes. Without taxes and public services we all get to pay outrageous prices to the corporate interests who want to step in and take over all of those public services. I wish it were true that the Republican Party is going to defeat the Tea Party, but it looks like they are all just bowing down to the great corporate masters.

New strategy? New wrappings and a nice bow maybe, but this gift will give its voters just the same ungoverning government as they had before, they all bow to the same masters.

The Republicans seem to have forgotten the real, desirable effect of advertising for candidates. I know I sound cynical here, but I have been an election judge and I am afraid it has at least some truth to it. There are not really any true swing voters who swing on the issues. There are people who think it is their duty to vote but for some reason don't carry that to finding out HOW to vote. These people will vote for a name they are familiar with. The point, almost the only point, of advertising for candidates is to get their names before the public. Failing a familiar name they will vote for the first name on the ballot. Why do you think the parties jockey for whose candidate is listed first? Unfortunately it really makes a difference.

Blame it on the Indians like the first tea party that was probably to squeeze out the East India Company by dumping an estimated 1 Millions dollars of tea ruined and replace tea sales with coffee.

I was reading the bat shit crazy comments on the site and then I saw what it was. Nothing like a conservative site to show just how stupid people can be.

Bravo Mr. Tillis, how does it feel with your foot in your mouth?
People must do some research into their candidates, if they want the country to mend.
Thanks Carrie.
