Republicans announce strategies to defeat Obama in 2012 listen08/08/11 Janelle Irwin
WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
During their general business meeting, the RNC committee tended to their regular business quickly before jumping into what they believe really matters: beating President Obama. Obama has launched a successful fundraising campaign so far, bringing in over $80 million. Sharon Day, vice-chair of the RNC, has a plan that doesnâ€™t just involve fundraising. It will also involve people-raising.
Republicans want to reach out to Latinos, but stopping with just one minority group might be under-zealous; Day says they also plan to target Asian-Americans.
The cleverly devised strategy came warranted from a committee who showed this week, just how badly they want Obama out. Chair Reince Priebus couldnâ€™t, or wouldnâ€™t, hold his tongue when it came to bad mouthing the nationâ€™s commander-in-chief.
Vice-chair Day was bursting with excitement at the opportunity to end Obamaâ€™s presidency.
At a luncheon the day before, Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal slathered on some sarcasm for effect.
The committee also heard from Governor Rick Scott at the meeting. Scott took the podium for a brief speech in which he outlined his success as Governor so far. That list included removing teacher tenure, requiring government employees to pay into their own pensions and drug testing welfare recipients. The crowd applauded him.
