What’s Really Going On? Are We Winning or Losing?
Opinion by Consumer Advocate Tim Bolen
So far – some of both. Three losses in a row, but the beginnings of a real counter campaign.
I don’t hesitate to point out the deficiencies of the so called Canary Party/Health Choice (CP/HC) band of self-congratulatory bird brains. Their efforts to run any issue campaign are legendary. They are just too exemplary of the “wrong” thing to do. Why bother to explain wrongness when all you have to do is point your finger. They are arrogantly immersed in their own stupidity.
In health issue projects it’s simple – if CP/HC is there, on your side, you are going to lose, but there will be important looking photos taken.
When I first noticed this group, and watched them have their photo taken with a Congressman, I actually thought that that photograph was taken, like REAL activist groups do, in relationship to some project they working on with that Congressman. When it was explained to me that “No, the photo was the end result…” I looked on the situation with a frown, and said “What? That’s silly. That can’t be true”
But it turned out to be very true. The CP/HC group either doesn’t have a clue on how to run a campaign, or they don’t want to, or both. For them, it is all about “appearance.” The “appearance” of running a campaign – not actually succeeding at one. Lots of drama, but never a victory.
