This is what I urged the Republicans to do in 10 Tweets during the Convention in Tampa.
#1 – Be Churchillian. Stop being the Anti-Obamas. A finest hour nears. Define the fight. Envision victory. Lead.
#2 – Drop the birther/Muslim themes. Say its good that the black son of single mom can be president. Then, don’t mention him again.
#3 – Story is the medium of our time. Don’t just preach conservative principles. Use story to impart and inspire.
#4 – Say this: Both parties contributed to our economic crisis. Both share blame. One has learned. One hasn’t.
#5 -Government is not evil. The free market isn’t an ever-benevolent deity. Extol the need for both within limits.
#6 – Don’t shy from faith themes so as not to draw attention to Romney’s Mormonism. Pray, honor God. We’re Americans.
#7 – Stop devouring each other. Aiken misspoke but he’s a good man. Forgive and rally. Embrace Ron Paul, etc. Heal up.
#8 – You must frame/position Romney’s Mormonism. Gallop says 63% know little about it. Frame it or your opponents will.
#9 – Demonstrate that business leadership isn’t rape and pillage but a set of skills transferable to the public sector.
#10 – Take a moment for prayer. Genuine prayer like Reagan led at the RNC in 1980. Pray for the Democrats, too. And all others. There is no political party of God, but we can turn a nation toward God.
