It is not as catchy as 9-9-9 but it may be a winning combination. While reading comments over at the PJ Tatler, I ran across a pretty damn good suggestion from a reader who calls themself slider. Slider suggests that the GOP should focus on the economy in 2012 by adopting the slogan: “16-45-15-5″ That’s $16 trillion in US debt, 45 million people on food stamps, 15% real unemployment, $5 per gallon gasoline.
There is no question that Obama’s soldiers in the main stream media are attempting to divert the campaign away from Obama’s dismal record and towards social issues. We all remember how Herman Cain would answer any question by touting his 9-9-9 plan and I would recommend that whenever Andrea Mitchell or one of the other MSM reporters ask one of the Republican candidates about gay marriage, free contraception, or some other social issue they should answer 16-45-15-5 and redirect the focus of this campaign where it belongs; on jobs and the economy.
