Conservative friend on Facebook said she heard a lot of radio ads tying the GOP to Todd Akin’s crazy comments on rape. Even though Akin apologized, that seemed to resonate. It created an image of a party indifferent to rape. That was just part of the Democrats’ effort to make the GOP an unacceptable alternative.
Perhaps, that caused voters disenchanted with Obama to stay home yesterday.
And this reminds us yet again that the Democrats won, not so much by selling their ideas, but by demonizing our party.
We need do a better job of defense. And pick candidates more ready to fight back against their smears.
