Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.) just wrapped a presentation at the Heritage Foundation about how he expected conservative media to attempt discredit the Democrats’ stimulus plans. Some quick points:
• DeMint praised Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio), the House GOP leader, for making it known this morning that he would vote against any Democratic stimulus plan no matter what it included. “That’s the kind of leadership we need.”
• For examples of how to fight the stimulus, DeMint harkened back to Republican messaging on the offshore drilling ban, on a bailout for automakers, and on immigration amnesty. “We take our message to the bloggers, and a lot of radio talk shows are getting their information from bloggers. More and more, TV is figuring this out. This is a new way and a right way to drive the political process.”
• The way to stop the stimulus is to “get America angry” about how it doesn’t comport with President Obama’s rhetoric. “This isn’t change we can believe in. This is business as usual.”
