Will the Democrat media blitz be enough to save the Democrats from losing control of the House in 2010?

Posted on January 27th, 2011 by admin1 in republican advertising strategy

The Democrats’ strategy to preserve their House majority became clearer Thursday as the party made a $28 million investment in television advertising for the final weeks of the fall campaign, a plan meant to build a defensive firewall to protect freshmen and some vulnerable longtime incumbents.

Several incumbent Democrats are bracing for something they have rarely faced: serious competition. Their predicament is the latest sign of distress for their party and underlines why Republicans are confident of making big gains in November and perhaps even winning back the House.

Democrats are playing defense in every corner of the country, hoping to use their fund-raising advantages to preserve their 40-seat majority in the House. The $28 million in advertising commitments represents the bulk of the $34 million in cash that the party committee had available at the end of June.

The Democrat media blitz hasn’t really started yet. And never under estimate the power of mass stupidity of the American voter.

    Problem is: Reps don’t have a clue as to how to fix anything, least of which the economy. All they do is PREVENT our president from being successfull–and bltch about everything.
    However, their "strategy" will backfire! The American people is not as stupid or gullible as they think.References :

    It will backfire because all they do is blame Bush and name-call everyone else. The country is tired of that crap. Unless they talk about real issues (which they know they are wrong about), they don’t stand a chance. HOWEVER, RINOs better watch out too! The country no longer wants incumbents spending money and running up bills which we can’t pay, passing bills that the majority of people are against, and ignoring a solid ground-roots movement by pretending it is racist. All seats are on the line.References :
