My email to the PCCC
I referenced them in the last post and decided to contact them, enclosed below:
Would you please read Lakoff's recent piece at Huff Post on proper framing? And his referenced book therein? It is critical for progressives to learn and use framing to reach voters who will elect those with a progressive agenda. It is not enough to just have the right policies, since the election showed those policies won on ballot initiatives yet in the same States Republicans won the seats. The Republicans, with Frank Luntz's guidance, are expert at framing and it is the missing key to Democrat campaigns. Stephanie Taylor's recent op-ed said to be like Senator Warren and Warren does this naturally. And President Obama learned it well which propelled him to two successful campaigns. Isn't it time progressives generally learned how to frame properly their important ideas? It is if they want to win elections and enact the People's agenda.
