Good find. That has been my contention all along. The dems have many variables on their side, willing partisan media and simple"touchy-feely" sound
bites to name a couple. Yet they never tell you what they want to do that is different. They just attack and criticize. This is not a winning
strategy. The fact is, although the dems love to attack Bush, he is just about as left as Bill Clinton was. He spends money hand over fist, he passes
extraneous regulations, and essentially is "big govenrment" which is the traditional democrat position. Other than the war in Iraq, there is not
much the dems would or could do different than Bush. In regard to Iraq, it serves no purpose to keep saying "woulda coulda shoulda". We are there
and that is the issue at hand. What can dems say they would do different right now today? Increase defense spending (never a dem issue) Pull the
troops out now? (they would never do that) Set a timetable? (they wouldn't do that either).
The dems have lost their middle class, blue collar base. They now rely on condescending coastal elitist, far left quasi-anarchists, and
african-americans (which as they realize how their votes are being brokered by black leaders not unlike slave traders to the democrats, are
emancipating themselves from their democrat party masters, slowly but surely).
Even with all the attacks, the dems still will not win any election until they can communicate a detailed plan to the American people and sell them on
it honestly. The "we are not Bush" only strategy will not work, especially since he isn't even up for re-election.
