From The National Journal comes GOP Rep Patrick McHenry:
“We will lose on legislation. But we will win the message war every day, and
every week, until November 2010,” said Rep. Patrick McHenry, R-N.C., an
outspoken conservative who has participated on the GOP message teams. “Our goal
is to bring down approval numbers for [Speaker Nancy] Pelosi and for House
Democrats. That will take repetition. This is a marathon, not a sprint.”
Their message seems to be that GOP can only hope to win if America fails.
