OK… I always like to think of the NRA as the strategic and the SAF as tactical. It is this reason I send them both money.
But in this case, Chris Cox glossed over the people who carried the water, and I agree he has done it previously. But I also acknowledge that together they make a good team. 4.5 million member helping to support the SAF. Had it not been for the NRA I wouldn’t have initially known about the SAF. (Just one man’s opinion)
That’s just the nature of DC. I’ve had 20 different organizations take credit for work I did in the last week. They didn’t lift a finger or spend a dime – my clients did.
After awhile you learn to deal with it. Solution is to Have your media consultant involved at all stages and have press releases ready to go.
SAF of course is at a disadvantage because the press will call NRA. And NRA is competing for a finite supply of $$$ with them. Why wouldn’t they take credit if 1) the press gives it to them and 2) they have a HUGE financial incentive to do it?
