'Vote Fianna Fáil - and help phase one of our two-phase recovery."

You cannot fight a General Election on an unspoken signal that it is about "muddling through".
The added implied resolution, that you will have "a right go" in the next one, does not cut any ice with voters contemplating the coming five years.
