Spot on piece from Bob Ray Sanders at the Star-T. The old school paradigm of running from national Democrats has failed over and over again in large part because Texans respect strength and that strategy projects weakness.
To the folks in the Davis campaign who don’t want the President here, let me share two facts with you:
1) You’re a dumbass if you think the R’s will ‘use’ Obama to hurt Wendles if she meets him. That will happen regardless. People who will think she’s an Obama puppet won’t vote for her anyway. Your concern is counterproductive and you’re stupid.
2) Snubbing the President shows a LARGE number of your base voters that you don’t give a crap about them or the President. That’s demoralizing. While you ARE the nominee, we can all stay home… put away your ‘get behind it or else’ crap.
Over the last few weeks, you’ve hit the skids and it sucks to watch. You’re back to running the Sample Democratic Campaign – Statewide TX. Fucking quit it and get you head back in the game. Start by realizing that there’s someone else on the R ticket who’d be much more fun to run against. But, if you don’t get that, then you’re fucked and Wendles might as well quit the race.
