6/29/2012 ANDY'S UNPOPULAR INSIGHTS. What NOW for Romney and the Republicans?
The Big Pictures is where I have my proven talent. I'm convinced that an attack on ObamaCare WILL LOSE THE ELECTION FOR THE REPUBLICANS. It will Re-elect Pres Obama, and give control of the House to the Democrats.
Over three years ago I said THIS 2012 election was going to be the Republican's election to lose. Spending time and money to attack ObamaCare during the next 17 weeks WILL lose the election for Romney.
What do millions of voters know for sure? They know that the current medical system is CRAP. So Romney and the Republicans would waste the next 17 weeks campaigning to NOT Change proven CRAP.
Right NOW, the ONLY thing that millions of swing-voters understand is that THEY are going to get FREE: free heart transplants, free Boob jobs, free noise jobs, free penis implants, free vacations in hospitals because they don't feel like even whipping their own ass, free Botox, free drugs to make them young again, free new livers because they destroyed their own with drinking, free Viagra, free Oxycontin, free new hair growth, free new skin growth, FREE, FREE, FREE. Best of all, some person on the dark side of Mars is magically going to pay for 100% of EVERYTHING.
I've been in sales, marketing, management, etc for over a half century. Here's what I learned in my College Management classes BEFORE I even started in the real world, and what a half century of "hands-on" marketing as re-affirmed many time over and over again, NOBODY CAN COMPETE AGAINST FREE.
Yes, the "Free" of ObamaCare IS a Mirage. BUT nobody in the world has enough talent to make millions of voters who really, REALLY want to believe in FREE change their dreams/delusions in the next 17 weeks.
How do you defeat a Mirage of Free? It takes LOTS OF TIME to Prove that the Mirage is a Mirage. Communism has been FAILING for over a Century, but there are STILL hundreds of millions of true-believers in communism.
If Romney wants to win he has to make ObamaCare a NON-ISSUE for the next 17 weeks. It's a "Wife Beater" trick, and no win issue in the short term.
Here's the bottom line, the current medical system is CRAP for tens of millions of voters. ObamaCare IS Change. Nothing is written in stone, what does not work can be changed, but at least with ObamaCare the voters are trying SOMETHING new. Millions of people ARE going to vote for Something (ObamaCare) rather than a proven Nothing.
When asked about ObamaCare Romney should ONLY say, "We'll see what happens. What doesn't work I have the ability to improve."
Mr. Romney needs to talk about MORE CHANGE, and Not going back to proven failures. Change to stop the growth of debt. Change to make the tax system simpler and more effective. Changes in education to change the attitude of STUDENTS towards learning. Changes to the world's worst Tort Law system. Changes to increase employment. Changes to make American manufacturing (and thus jobs) more competitive in the world.
Eight years ago I said that the Iraq War part II was a con game, and it was the "Tar Baby Trick" from, "Uncle Remus and the Adventures of Br'er Rabbit." The more you punch the Tar Baby the deeper in trouble you become. The proposed war with Iran is ALSO a con game and ALSO the Tar Baby Trick. ObamaCare is Romney's Tar Baby. If he's not smart enough to see the danger and trap, than he'll lose.
