RNC 2012 Election Strategy: Lie, Cheat & Steal

I am not convinced that the following applies to the modern-day card-carrying Republican voter, but I'm pretty sure they are not completely aware of what's going on either. They're party voters; their role is to vote for their party. It's the RNC's job to basically give them a rationale for continuing to vote for the GOP.

The RNC's plan for this election cycle (and presumably beyond) is to lie, cheat and steal.

They plan to lie about economic and domestic issues, how this country came to be and role government played in that development, and the level of racial and misogynistic tactics they are using. They plan on cheating by changing the rules so people who don't normally vote for them won't be able to vote at all.These schemes, if properly executed, will allow the GOP to steal the 2012 election, and by "steal" I mean, "They are afraid that they will lose if they don't lie and cheat, so they have resorted to lying and cheating to get the desired outcome."

Even if they pull this off for 2012, it is not a strategy for the long term. You can only rely on "angry white guys" and outright disdain for facts for so long before demographics and reality catches up with you.

If they were being honest, the GOP could address this issue with relative ease:
  1. Find a Republican who was born after 1970;
  2. Prep that Republican to run for President in any of the next two cycles.

As long as they continue to run guys who grew up in a segregated, misogynistic, gay-bashing era, they will have problems getting minorities to vote for them in significant numbers. I know they like to talk about how Lincoln was a Republican and black people like him, but that's because he freed the slaves. I couldn't think of five prominent, currently-office-holding Republicans who would have done the same thing if s/he was in Lincoln's place.
