The GOP needs to be on offense-Obama has freely given plenty of scandals! Keep the fire of outrage going. Obamacare is the gift that keeps giving-continue to pick it apart…there are how many thousands of pages to use?? Keep pointing out why there are no jobs…Obamacare. Insurance costs going up….Obamacare. Who likes the IRS? No one…use it! Benghazi…great example of why Obama is not a leader, nor Hillary! Egypt…has the US ever backed less democracy? The world is laughing at the US! Conservatives have to get back into education, the govt is using our children to spread their healthcare & environment propaganda. That has to stop. Support alternative media. Pray!
“May you live in interesting times” — This is an Ancient Chinese curse!
Rather than have a peaceful contented life, if you live in “interesing times” there are wars, turmoil, treachery, plagues, famine, revolutions, and all sorts of things challenging your very existance.
Look at all the current interesting events recently.
We are seeing Egypt about to have another revolution, a one year postponement of the mandate for business is announced the evening before the July 4th weekend as everyone heads for vacation so no one pays attention.
Venezuela and Equador offer asylum to Snowden ,who cares? Pass the hotdogs.
Rather than deal with Egypt or the NSA rift with Europe, Iran’s nukes, or other real issues Secretary of State Kerry dusts off talks with the worlds longest running farce, Palistine where hamster after generaton of hamster continues to spin the cage. Cast off, its sailing day on the Yacht!
Today a plane crashed in San Francisco. So far two people have died! TWO PEOPLE and the entire news agencies have featured it all day long.
I will not be surprised to find out hundreds died in car crashes this weekend. Certainly many more died in Egypt but who cares? ITS A PLANE CRASH ! Cancel everything else!
The IRS is being used as a political weapon and everyone is ALARMED !
Until we are distracted by the NEXT BIG THING.
No one is even talking about the runaway budget anymore,thats OLD.
Fast and Furious and Benghazi “what difference does it make now”?
If you throw an endless amount of S*** against the wall it all just disappears into the background.
The public attention span is shorter than a fruitflies life.
If the public doesn’t DEMAND real answers and develop a longer attention span why should the politicians.
And you will really live in interesting times in the years ahead.
How can we carry any of these issues through to a conclusion when the public doesn’t have an attention span?
How can we hold our government accountable with this mentality within the public?

Well put, @grand-vizier
I was taught in college journalism that if writing for mainstream media, I should write at the level of a twelve year old kid so that the majority of society could not only understand but willingly pay attention to my news.
Maybe there is a solution here… maybe the mainstream news needs to DEMAND more intelligence out of its readers/viewers, i.e. if you don’t understand whats going in on Egypt, GOOGLE IT. Don’t just flip to the news station with the plane crash that someone will probably make a Hollywood film out of in the next year.
