Cons Lose Touch With Americans, Own Pollsters

This is so far beyond pathetic that pathetic can't even be seen on a clear night with a telescope:

A high-profile and well-respected GOP pollster is strongly criticizing the new effort by the GOP Congressional leadership to revive the party’s national security attacks on Obama, saying the strategy risks making the party look “out of touch and irrelevant.”

“What are we, in a time machine?” the pollster, Tony Fabrizio, asked scornfully in an interview with me moments ago. “We just got clobbered in two successive elections and lost majorities in both Houses, and the leadership appears to keep on playing the same cards.”


GOP Congressional leaders Mitch McConnell and John Boehner have embarked on an aggressive new effort to revive national security as an issue and paint Obama as weak on terror (again). Boehner recently released a video complete with 9/11 imagery that asks, “Do you feel safer”? McConnell has stepped up attacks on Obama for lacking a plan to relocate Guantanamo detainees.

“Most people are looking to DC to see how they’re going to solve the financial and banking crisis,” Fabrizio said. He noted that these attacks do not make people feel targeted by “an imminent threat,” adding that trafficking in them means “you risk looking out of touch and irrelevant.”

Seriously, Cons. Your own pollster says you're losers. I know it's hard, but it's time to learn a new tune.
