That's too bad. I'm an independent with strong left leaning tendencies and I can tell you that I hate
to see the Republican party losing
it's strength and it's values, becoming a corporatist melting pot of self-serving fiscal pursuit. I would hope that observing the Democratic
party's vagaries would leave you saddened rather than thrilled.
They should be a least 20% ahead of the Republicans in this election cycle.
But, they just can not help themselves......
Not so true. The Democrats have actually run an unusually clean campaign and have argued strong points. They've argued a case that should be well
received and strong with the center. The problem with this election, sadly, is a story of defamation of character and distraction from central
They continue to blame George Bush for everything (Gues what? He is not running!!!)
But those who are
running on the Republican side have shown an alarming degree of support for his policies. In truth, only the opposing
Democrats have shown anything in terms of a record of opposing these disastrous policies.
They try to re-define the definitions of key terms to meet their needs (recession)
Please provide a source for Obama or Biden trying to "re-define recession". The issue with recessions is that they can only be called through the
rear-view. Economists are always
in disagreement regarding whether a recession is running it's course. It's not until after
run it's course that they find agreement.
They try to shove the most liberal agenda down the throats of American citizens sine either Dukakis or Mondale (How many electoral votes did these two
Please source this, and define liberal more clearly. I mean, considering that the Republicans of Lincoln's day have a lot more in common with the
Democrats of ours than today's "Republicans".
They want the US Military to lose (Harry Reid "This war is Lost")
That's absurd. No one wants our soldiers to die, no one wants us to "lose", but there are some strong disagreements on the definition and value
associated with "winning".
Their hate (George Bush), rhetoric (worst economy since the great Depression),
The "worst economy since the Great Depression" thing isn't a Democrat thing. It's an entire segment of economists, who demographically speaking
are overwhelmingly conservative in their politics.
..and total character assination (Palin's youngest son is really her daughter's)
Whatever. If you're going to bring fringe Democrat bloggers into the picture, I'll bring in some fringe Republican bloggers. See where the chips
combined with Senator Obama's poor judgement in Friends (Rev Wright and Bill Ayers), Vice Presidential picks (Biden) and desire to push americans to
adopt the european model.
On your first point, I can play this sort of guilt by association game with Republican politicians, too. I think it's ridiculous, though. Don't
Has turned a game where the republicans spotted you a 5 touchdown lead, into a tie game with the republicans driving down the field and about to score
the go ahead touchdown.
If the republicans do win...this will go down as the biggest choke job in the history of man-kind.
Heh. Funny how words mean different things to different people.
