That’s what political commentator Rick Unger recently observed. He went on to say that really good campaigns don’t appear to be contrived.
So now we have the right saying that the Hillary campaign in Iowa was obviously contrived. From the “Scooby Bus” to the meetings with “everyday people.” They go so far as to claim that those “everyday people” were plants from the Hillary campaign.
Well perhaps some of that could be true. She also hasn’t given any big speeches or given any press conferences. But none of the Republicans running have given pressers either.
At the recent confab in New Hampshire, those Republicans who want to be president gave flourishing speeches. They spoke of all things Conservative. They spoke of patriotism and what it means to be a real, loyal, true American. They spoke of “taking our country back.” But mostly they spoke of “Hillary.” And what they had to say was not nice. In fact it was down right mean. Snarky. The crowd love that. But none spoke of vision. None had a road map on how to get there.
So the Republican campaigns are likewise contrived. But no one is pointing this out. Neither the left nor the progressive media nor the “liberal” mainstream media. Does that make them good campaigns?
All campaigns are contrived.
