- A solid majority of Nevada voters disapproved of both President Obama and Senator Reid, yet the latter was able to win a secure victory.
- A staggering 45 percent of voters thought Angle’s positions were “too conservative,” and Reid captured 75 percent of those voters.
- But it is of equal importance that he or she does not commit unforced errors
- frontlash is pretty much the only shot Obama has [emphasis mine]
"To put it in a nutshell, frontlash" means making charges like "too conservative". In Romney's favor, it seems that he makes the fewest errors, but is he going to be able to get out the vote? Cain may get the conservatives out to vote, but he seems to be making mistakes.
I think Jimmy Carter tried to frontlash Reagan, but it backfired when Reagan said "there you go again". Both Cain and Romney can employ this tactic if Obama gets too negative.
The New York Times, of all places, confirms that the ugliness of today's politics began with Bork.
More from Professor Jacobsen, on the ugliness towards Cain.
Just as we saw liberal feminists fall all over themselves to bash Sarah Palin as an insult to women, so too we see liberals who claim to be enlightened on matters of race fall all over themselves to bash Cain as an insult to blacks.
