HIS PARTY FAVOR:
GOP Takes Bill Clinton's Advice For Dems (John R. Parkinson, 9/24/10, ABC News)
“I think that the Democrats ought to put on one card no more than five and no fewer than three things that will be their priorities,” Clinton said Thursday on MSNBC’s Morning Joe. “We've still got a chance here. We've got 30 days to have an honest debate. We ought to do it.”Posted by Orrin Judd at September 25, 2010 6:28 AM
Today, House Republicans, however, are capitalizing on Clinton’s proposition, printing massive amounts of “Pledge Pocket Cards” for GOP candidates and incumbent lawmakers to distribute at campaign events this fall.
The content on the double-sided hand bills touts five legislative areas that Republicans are pledging to prioritize as part of their new governing agenda, “A Pledge to America,” which was announced Thursday morning in Sterling, Virginia.
The GOP card explains the party’s proposals on creating jobs, gaining control of spending, repealing the new health care law, reforming Congress and keeping the country secure at home and abroad. Each topic is supported by a few bullet points that summarize the party’s new governing agenda should the GOP win back the House majority in the Nov. 2 elections.
