Frank Luntz Republican Playbook -- Searchable Text-Version: PART III "GROWTH, PROSPERITY, & RESTORE ENERGY and ECONOMIC SECURITY"
Categories :: Framing 101 :: Reference :: Republicans

In the third installment of the text version of the Luntz Republican playbook, Frank tells us how to, among other things, frame 'lawsuits' (never mentioned without the word frivolous preceding it) as a primary driver for the horrific loss of jobs over the course of Bush's reign in the White House.

Introducing a Searchable, Easily Accessed, Text-Version of the Frank Luntz Republican Playbook
Categories :: Framing 101 :: Reference :: Republicans

So the Frank Luntz Republican Playbook is in our hands and everybody wants to peel through the pages to discover the inner workings of the right-wing propaganda machine.

Unfortunately, you currently have to battle debilitating file downloads and software requirements to read it.

Fortunately, we are here to help make your life easier -- to access, to search, to read and to excerpt the GOP’s strategic tome. As a part of our 'Framing Project', over the following days, we are creating a text version of the currently available image document. It will be completely searchable -- and browser accessible in a handful of posts organized and permanently referenced on our main 'Framing Project' page.

Death Squads are not Necessarily Bad, as Long as Neocon Corporate Interests are Served
Categories :: Books

It is truly pathetic to see neoconservatives donning the clothes of freedom fighters and current Cheney-Baker-Kissinger Associates spokesperson George W. Bush cajoling Russia’s Vladimir Putin to step up his democracy campaign more briskly. Yes, neocon democracy is bursting forth throughout the world, or is it?

Framing: How Bush Has Stuck a Wedge in the Heart of Europe to Spark Internal Conflict and Debase Franco-German Power
Categories :: Foreign Policy :: Framing - Foreign Policy

FRAME: If a European is asked whether he opposes or supports the United States over Iraq, the vast majority will say they are opposed. However, if you ask them: "Do you prefer to live in an integrated Europe dominated by France and Germany, or would you prefer to maintain a degree of independence by aligning with the United States on security issues?" then you would most likely receive a very different answer.

After complaining in such drastic terms about Europe’s refusal to go along with the unproven “fear theory” of the “weapons of mass destruction” high voltage propaganda campaign, George Bush and the robot-like Administration he led to perhaps the largest lie for going to war against a nation in American history, he now speaks of mending fences abroad!

Why The Silence About Condoleezza's Accountability for the Iraq Disaster?

Why Do Conservatives Hate Their Children?
Categories :: Conservatives :: Environment

We all know that at least some conservatives aren't idiots. They know full well that global warming is a reality. Yet that does absolutely nothing to prevent them from renouncing it as some left-wing fairy tale.

They only care about their right to pump as much pollution as possible into the atmosphere without the constraints of regulation... cause God forbid we spend one Goddamn penny from the GOP coffers to prevent the ultimate destruction of our planet.

Friday's Funnies: The Shrub Zone
Categories :: Satire

Let me see if I’ve got this right. TeamBush, happily ensconced in their renovated Lincoln Bedroom are widely (mis)quoting FDR, Bill Clinton, and Harry Reid on privatization. When RepubliCons stoop to using popular and populist Democrats as their sources, you know you’re in The Shrub Zone.

Here are this week’s oxymoronic observations from deep within . . . The Shrub Zone (eerily lilting background music):

“Enemy Combatant” Negroponte will be the Nation’s First Intelligence Chief.
Categories :: Bush Administration :: Iran Contra

Most people remember Negroponte as the facilitator of Reagan-approved atrocities in Honduras and proud Iran-Contra criminal. I know, it's hard to believe, but one of Bush's appointments might not actually meet the high standards we would like to believe the US Government sets for its officials. In fact, he and his buddies, Caspar Weinberger, Elliot Abrams, Robert McFarlane, John Poindexter, Otto Reich, George Bush Sr., Ronald Reagan, and Oliver North committed acts that, outside conservative circles, spur outrage and disbelief.

Your PropaGannon Update
Categories :: Bush Administration :: Media Snake Oil :: Propaganda/Spin

the real importance of the Gannon story had nothing to do with sex or prostitution but about our growing knowledge of the elaborate Soviet-style White House propaganda network, and, potentially, about how a paid propaganda agent may have been involved in the outing of an undercover CIA agent.

Framing Tactic: Respond with 'Value-Based' Answers
Categories :: Framing 101

Regardless of the framing of a question, give your answer as a statement of your position -- one that you want everyone to hear. Do not play into the questioner's traps by dignifying their heavily spun questions. By directly addressing the question, you will lose and a framing opportunity will be lost.

Iran and Syria in 'Common Front' Makes it Easier for Administration to Attack Both Nations
Categories :: Foreign Policy

Iran and Syria are working to ease the work of the Administration and their neoconservative brethren by offering themselves as a 2-for-1 package. Invade one and the other comes as a bonus at only twice the price -- quite a bargain in the administration’s efforts to 'reshape' the Middle East.

America Loves Traditional Progressive Values
Categories :: Propaganda/Spin

Let's see, Hillary performs significantly better than Kerry, handily stowing her victim in the electoral trunk -- and yet, Hillary is perceived as being nontrivially more liberal than Kerry. How does that synch with the assertion that liberalism is 'out of touch with mainstream America'?

They Fear Dean -- and So They Should
Categories :: Dean, Howard

To me it sounds like they are afraid of him. And I don’t mean that they are afraid because of his media-induced status as a ‘loose cannon’ or a ‘polarizing figure’. I think they’re afraid because they know deep down inside that a paradigm shift has just occurred in the Democratic Party.

Let the Republicans mock. That’s the best they can do. Let them replay the ‘scream’. That’s all they have. Let them tag him a (gasp!) Libruuuul. Who cares.

They know that Dean brings two things to the Democrats that the right has feared for decades:

Gallup Overweights Poll with Republicans -- AGAIN
Categories :: Polling

Here we go again.

The other day, Gallup released a poll showing a spike in Bush's approval ratings to 57%, up 6 points from 51% three weeks ago. Gallup speculated that the Iraqi elections were the impetus for the spike, but our friend, Steve Soto over at The Left Coaster was quick to spot the true source of the spike.

Apparently, the Gallup organization is fond of Republicans -- after all, they found it appropriate to overload them (by 9%) in their latest Bush poll.

Is the Democratic Leadership Strong-Arming Democrats into Submission?
Categories :: Democrats

Now I believe in tolerance and encourage a diversity of opinions. However, there is a time for cooperation and there is a time to stand firm as an opposition party. Under the current conditions, I fully encourage the Democratic leadership to take one out of the Republican playbook and stand firm as the progressive opposition to a radical, right-wing administration and legislature.

Gannon Scandal Breaks Wide Open
Categories :: Media

The most interesting thing about this, is that the effort to expose Gannon as a no-talent, non-credentialed, family-value-hypocrite, pseudo-propagandist, GOP insert with access to the highest levels of the White House -- even while using a fake name, was perpetuated, not only by the progressive bloggers, but also by the commenters and diarists. It was a testament to the successes that can be achieved and the justice that can be wrought when the political left works together intelligently and aggressively.

Bush Speaks With a Forked Tongue -- Preaches Democracy and Rules by Despotism
Categories :: Bush Administration

George Bush made repeated references to “freedom” in his State of the Union Message and even invoked that name that has been missing for so long in the Republican lexicon, that of the Republican Party’s founder, Abraham Lincoln. While Bush delivered repeated lip service to democracy, practicing it is a totally different matter, as the record clearly reflects.

Was Bush Prophesized in the Book of Revelations?
Categories :: Religion

People have been speculating on the emergence of an antichrist ever since there was a Christ. In similar fashion, people have been speculating the end of the world ever since people began to comprehend what 'the world' was.

So toss these two happy thoughts together and you get an uplifting prophecy from the book of Revelations that says the 'Antichrist' will appear, and he will mark the end of time.

Fortunately for us, the bible has a prophecy-hit-percentage of exactly ZERO .

How Insiders Make Billions
Categories :: Books

Sean Hewitt is an experienced New York trader who knows the ropes and shares much of his knowledge in this fascinating work that brings a touch of John Le Carre to the hectic current high stakes financial scene in “Crude Bedfellows,” a book from Author House. This is a work of fiction weaving elements common in real life and frequently engaged in by top professionals. Hewitt shows that there is much more to achieving wealth than the “virtue and hard work” superficial answers supplied by a series of guests on the famous television program “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous”.

Framing: Primer for a Progressive Revolution -- Part II: The Nurturant Parent Vs. the Strict Father
Categories :: Framing 101

To effectively frame the issues and the world around us, we must first understand how conservatives and progressives are different. To truly understand these differences, it's important that we digest them on a deeply intuitive, emotional and intellectual level. George Lakoff’s metaphor of the 'Nation as Family' will provide such insight.

Introducing the 'Nurturant Parent' and 'Strict Father': Lakoff simplifies the contrast between progressive and conservative world views by presenting each as a style of parenting. This flows within a much broader metaphor that equates the nation to family -- suggesting that 'progressive thought' is that of the 'Nurturant Parent' while conservative thought is that of the 'Strict Father'. Where each has the following characteristics:
