Thought for the Day

With polling consistently showing the Republican "brand" is still weak, I'm wondering if maybe the Dem strategy should be to "nationalize" the 2010 election and run against the Republican brand.

Maybe the answer is to jiujitsu the Republicans, getting them on the record against healthcare and getting them on the record defending banks, bonuses, and rich people, and then running against that. (as it looks like there will be no major achievement to run on.)

It seems that in this period of economic grief, folks are wanting to rabble. Perhaps the Dems should take a hint from the tea party summer, and turn the non-tea party rabble back against the Republicans (..."who are more interested in protecting Wall Street bonuses than providing healthcare...).

It would fire up what is reported to be a less than fired up base.
