The well oiled GOP has now fine tuned their message. Below Ed Schultz gets the message out:
AP-A 28-page presentation by Frank Luntz, who has long experience in advising Republicans on tailoring their speeches and phrase-making to achieve maximum political benefit. Poll testing rhetoric is a technique both parties use, and in his presentation, Luntz credits Obama with making skillful use of language. He's also got some pointed advice to Republicans eager to doom the as-yet unwritten legislation. "Your political opponents are the Democrats in Congress and the bureaucrats in Washington, not President Obama. Every time we test language that criticized the president by name, the response was negative even among Republicans," Luntz wrote. "
Americans want solutions, not politics." One section of his presentation is, "Which is the best reason to oppose Obama?" The most successful attack is, "It will lead to the gov't setting standards instead of the doctor who really knows best." That was followed closely by, "It will lead to the gov't rationing care, making people stand in line and denying people treatment like they do elsewhere."
