Republican plan: "Lie, Cheat, Buy"

In one of his recent Real Time shows, Bill Maher said that the Republican strategy this year is "lie, cheat, buy" ~

 - lying about Obama's positions, like saying that he took away the work requirement from welfare

- cheating mostly refers to voter disenfranchisement, the efforts for which are incredibly aggressive, rampant, and blatant, especially in swing states like Florida and Ohio

- buying of course refers to the massive amounts of unregulated money being poured into the campaign by wealthy donors like the Koch brothers

I've found myself thinking about this constantly said I heard it a few weeks ago, because he summed it up so succinctly and accurately.
