At HuffPo, Robert Creamer lists “10” key steps for Obama, but it all boils down to one:
Face it. If Obama told the truth about his platform, he’d get blown out like Mondale in ’84. “I want to raise taxes, regulate our economy into stagnation, and talk to terrorists until they blow us up, after which I would talk to them even more.”
No, he’s gotta put some bright-red, candy-flavored lipstick on the pig of his platform and hope folks’ll believe it’s Miss America.
Here’s the honest, straightforward, no-spin, no-BS version of Robert Creamer’s HuffPo piece:
1). Target States — Spread the Field.
Lie to the people of the Midwest about sharing their values. Hopefully they’ve forgotten about that “bitter, clingy, racist, religious-zealot, gun-nut” comment.
2). Pour unlimited resources into Ohio.
Lie to the people of Ohio so much that Republicans will be FORCED to match your ad spending to point out what a liar you are.
3). Obama should not even think about opting into the system of public financing for the general election.
After you get elected, lie about how imperative campaign finance reform is, despite the fact that you couldn’t have gotten elected with such a system in place.

4). We must devote a mix of resources to persuasion and to mobilization that is appropriate to each state.
Lie to racist blacks, the ignorant young, and frustrated Republicans contemplating the “nuclear option” of voting in Carter 2.0 in 2008 in the hopes of getting a Reagan 2.0 in 2012.
5). Nationally, the campaign must create a mass movement.
Lie to a LOT of people.
6). Democrats must convince skeptical swing voters that Obama is safely on their side.
Lie a LOT to a lot of people.
7). Democrats need to convince swing voters that McCain would usher in a third Bush term — that he’s not the “independent-maverick” he pretends to be.
Lie about McCain actually being a Conservative. Basically just say whatever McCain does.
8) Democrats need to undermine public confidence in McCain’s competency and judgment with respect to the War in Iraq.
Lie about the war. Say things like “Only McCain would be stupid enough to believe that you can defeat terrorists by killing them”. Try to keep a straight face while doing so.
9). We need to drive the contrast between a change candidate with a vision for the future and a candidate steeped in the ways of Washington.
Lie about being a sleazy Washington tool. Honestly, how long does the “steeping” process take? If you’re still an “outsider” after working for the same company for THREE YEARS, you’re probably not very good at what you do. Which tells me that Obama is just a worthless slack-*ss who’s not pulling his weight and is basically just stealing his paycheck.
10). Obama must continue to appeal proudly and self-confidently to progressive values.
Lie about the fact that “progressive values” is an oxymoron.
And most of all, lie Big:
The magnitude of a lie always contains a certain factor of credibility, since the great masses of the people in the very bottom of their hearts tend to be corrupted rather than consciously and purposely evil, and that, therefore, in view of the primitive simplicity of their minds they more easily fall a victim to a big lie than to a little one, since they themselves lie in little things, but would be ashamed of lies that were too big. Such a falsehood will never enter their heads and they will not be able to believe in the possibility of such monstrous effrontery and infamous misrepresentation in others.
