Why Don't The Democrats Run on Their Record?
Now the Democratic spin-doctors and their willing accomplices in the main stream media are trying mightily to do whatever they can to alleviate the damage to their cause, but the fact remains that most of the tactics they are now employing in the final few weeks of this contest amount to little more than personal attacks and an avoidance of the main issues at all costs.
And that is what strikes me as peculiar. Why would the Democrats not be touting their overwhelming partisan vote for Obamacare? How about the stimulus package? How about the financial reform legislation? How about the yet-to-pass cap & trade legislation that they are championing? How about cash for clunkers? How about any number of irresponsible spending bills they passed into law?
If the public truly had wanted these things and elected the Democrats to office in order to enact legislation to bring us all of the fruits of these disastrous laws, why are the Democrats not yelling from the rooftops about what they have accomplished in our name? How come you don't see anyone even MENTIONING Obamacare except in the case where a given politician states that he or she voted AGAINST it?
Is it possibly because of the fact that the Democrats were indeed hijacked by the far left progressives of their party and failed to listen to the vast majority of Americans and their opinions and pass these unwanted, irresponsible, and often un-Constitutional laws in spite of the peoples' will? I have a rather gargantuan hunch that is precisely the case.
November 2nd will indeed be the ultimate Tea Party to date and the Democrats have absolutely nobody to blame but themselves for listening to the far left fringes of their party at the expense of the opinions of We The People. Really... what did they think would happen as a result of their arrogance?
