"Tell us what to say" : Tea Party providing GOP talking points

Who says the Tea Party is all white? OK, OK, I guess this picture is worth a thousand words. Just make sure those words include:
"Save medicare from the Democrats, Freedom, Liberty, Take our Country back!, Founding Fathers, and limited government". 

Did someone say racist? Not me. Afterall, there is that one black lady way back on the right side.

From the Huffington Post

Matt Kibbe, president of FreedomWorks, focused on Medicare and gave the congressional offices tips for dealing with the hot topic in their districts (emphasis added):
  • Get out there and talk to people. Hold town halls at senior centers and other areas where the population is especially concerned about their benefits being cut. Take the lessons of ’94 and ’95 and get out there and explain to people that their immediate benefits will not be affected. Explaining the plan will offset confusion and the Democrats’ negative messaging.
  • We need to dispel the myth that if we leave Medicare alone it will stay the same. It won’t. By reforming them we are saving and strengthening these programs for the current and future generations.
  • Don’t bury your head in the sand. Republicans must not shy away from this issue. Expect Democrats to attack, but not fighting back will only makes it worse. BOLD action is needed.
  • Communicate that Democrats do not have a plan of their own. Hold up a blank piece of paper as a powerful image of their do-nothing approach.
  • Stick to your message.
What else can the spineless GOP say except: Yes Boss!
