In Politics, Like In Business, It Helps To Have a Good Product .

No, i'm not suggesting that the GOP use Vince from the Sham-Wow commercials to try and get it's message across - especially since he got busted recently. That, and no one in America trusts a guy who says that all the best stuff is made in Germany.
We've been talking a lot about how to open the tent for the GOP this week. I suppose the correct answer is 'whatever it takes' . But, no matter how slick the advertising might be for us, the most important thing is to make sure we have a great product. What that is, we will find out in the very near future, as the next phase of the Republican Party takes shape. But, if the product is inferior, all the best pitchmanship will fail. Don't believe me? Check this clip out, and see what a Vince wannabe does with a similarly absorbent product.... Kind of.

Success is not a race, be patient.
Success leads to success.
Success is always a work in progress.
Success doesn't come to you--you go to it.
Success is a journey, not a destination. Focus on the process.
Some people dream about success... while others wake up and work hard at it.
Success is achieved and maintained by those who try-and keep trying.
Everyday is a good day to SUCCEED!..if at first you don't succeed-try, try again.
Count your blessings.
Say what you mean...mean what you say.
Make a plan..have a plan the plan.

Sounds like a good start, although there are no specifics listed. Essentially , it is right. There will be opportunities. Some aren't ready to be introduced yet. Soem people will naturally come back, some in groups, and others will need to be convinced individually. There is no fixed plan, but a series of Plan A's all the way to Plan ZZZ.
