The Real Sporer: The Gross Poll: Insight into the decade of defeat

Excerpted from this post at The Real Sporer

Doug Gross' recent poll demonstrates the distinction between a boxer and a puncher. The whole premise of the poll assumes that we Republicans are a one punch palooka whose only chance is the haymaker from Hell. Given the economic collapse our nation faces, and Iowa's role as arguably the worst business climate in the nation, there really cannot be any argument that the economy is our best punch. To require polling data to confirm the foregoing tautology bespeaks a level of either or both political or ideological insecurity that is almost in itself disqualifying from leadership. This insecurity has caused us defeat, followed by even greater defeat because it has afflicted so much of our Republican leadership. So, like a smart boxer, let us lead with our best punch. The next question is to decide on precisely what is that punch.
