the Dems just don't get it!
You just don’t get it, do you? I keep reading all these rants about George W. Bush and his Christian beliefs and on and on and on. That’s not what this was about. Just about everyone I know voted for W and out of all of them, maybe 2 go to church regularly and I'm not sure I'd call them overly christian either. It’s not about religion. It’s about inclusiveness. I saw a comment on BC where someone was saying that there were plenty of pro-choice republicans. Can you name me one pro-life democrat? There aren’t any, at least none I can come up with. Democrats like to believe that their party is inclusive and I guess in some respects it is. But the one thing I can tell you after reading all the entries at this site for the last couple of weeks is that the democrats around here sure don’t seem to be to inclusive. The world as we know it is over and you’re all leaving the country, or let’s start the revolt, or you just wait and see what happens to this country now that you’ve put that religious nut back in the Whitehouse, or your wrong and your a racist. You seem to forget, there was a democrat in there for 8 years and this new guy inherited a recession and a terrorist problem that should have been dealt with a long time ago!
You guys seem to be fond of comedians as political pundits. You have Jon Stewart and Al Franken. Well I even heard Stewart asking Chuck Schummer what he thought was wrong. Schummer didn’t seem to have a clue. He said everybody thinks the war is wrong and taxes are wrong and health care is wrong and then we lose the election anyway. Jon Stewart then asked if it might be because the people view most democratic politicians as elitists!
You see that’s it. The Kerry campaign had all these actors and musicians spewing their BS and they never even knew that 51% of the country doesn’t mind paying to see their movies or listen to their music, but when it comes to politics, we’d rather they shut the hell up! Those same people are the ones that Kerry is hanging out with in Aspen on his weekend snowboarding trips, or windsurfing in Nantucket. They’re not down at the local bar having a beer with the guys! They’re members of the elite. They think they should get head of the line everywhere they go. The republicans had the swiftees, the democrats had billionaire Soros! The republicans had Laura Bush, the Democrats had the richest African-American in the United States and those are her words not mine!
I’ll tell you this right now. If the Democratic Party nominates Hillary in 2008, they’ll be standing back scratching their heads again, wondering what the hell happened? The Democratic Party needs to come back to the center. Democrats are way, way out there! I mean, if the west coast leans any farther to the left it really will fall into the ocean!
There are issues out there that the two parties can agree on and there are some that probably will take a long time to get settled. But it won’t happen until the Democratic Party makes more Americans feel comfortable. Let's sit down and talk, like reasonable people.
