The morning after Obama’s speech, the RNC should plaster the numbers above on billboards and TV screens all over the country. No explanation or rhetoric, just the numbers alone on a blue or red background.
Everyone will wonder what the heck those numbers mean, and it will get news coverage because it is a puzzle and everyone loves puzzles. In due time, everyone will be reminded:
- 12 Million is the number of unemployed Americans.
- 16 Trillion is the amount of our national debt.
- $4.50 is the average price of a gallon of gas.
Simple. Effective. Facts.
