David Plouffe: GOP “The Party Of Limbaugh, Beck, And Palin”
White House adviser David Plouffe’s book is out in paperback at the end of the month with some added material from its hardcover edition. (h/t Glynnis MacNicol). And Plouffe signals what might be the re-election playbook, given that Obama’s harshest critics are the conservative media.
Apart from underlining how few actual political candidates the GOP has in its line up, this appears to be an admission that Obama see his main opponent to be the (admittedly very powerful) conservative media. Of course, in the real world this is exactly who Obama is battling, but it’s strange to see it formalized in a book title, not to mention a questionable strategy.
Or maybe its a great strategy, given that the further the Republican Party moves to the right, the more its candidates sound like talk show hosts, from whom many of them seem to be taking their cues.
