The bottom line ...

Dems need to put out a razor sharp, crystal clear message in the next two years and let voters know that Republicans don't stand for what they do, don't want what they do and will set the country back decades, even centuries with their backwoods logic.

Why is the Republican Party product is more attractive right now?

I think the question the party and everyone in it should be asking right now is why people aren't flocking to the Democratic Party platform and its candidates. Certainly, and sadly, some of the reason is the way the Republicans have used racism to foster a hatred for the president.

But it's more than that. It's the fear-mongering on Fox News (ALERT!) with Ebola, terrorism and immigration. All they had to do is get their lemmings to believe Obama and the Administration isn't on top of the problem. And they did just that.

Then there's Obamacare, which, if you believe the Republican meme, is the worst thing since the plague. No, it's WORSE than the plague.

Admit it. That crap is an easy sell. And then you have jokers like the Koch Brothers with infinite resources.

Republicans play the "keep it simple, stupid" game. They sell their idiocy like a product. It's about time Dems got the hint. Keep it simple. Be direct. Say it loud.

I'm also beginning to wonder if DWS should be replaced, maybe with someone with a bolder image. Ed Rendel, maybe?

But Dems need to get an effective message out. They certainly aren't doing it now.

I also think the Dems should take a hard line against the Republicans in January. Cooperate? Hell, no.
