"I want you to argue with [your Republican and Independent friends and neighbors] and get in their face."
--Barack Obama, as oblivious to the concept of cause-and-effect as ever.
Obama takes time to remind his troops of the Jedi Mind Trick tactic:
"And if they tell you that, 'Well, we're not sure where he stands on guns.' I want you to say, 'He believes in the Second Amendment.' If they tell you, 'Well, he's going to raise your taxes,' you say, 'No, he's not, he's going lower them.' You are my ambassadors. You guys are the ones who can make the case."This sort of thing will surely solidify the base--the conservative base.
