Majority of Dems Refuse to Campaign On Preserving Their Most Important Achievement
Nearly every election cycle, what you will hear from Democrats when they are in danger of losing any kind of “majority” power is the standard mantra of fear that elucidates to those who are stupid enough to believe it that the GOP is coming after your “goodies”.
What kind of goodies?
Well, those goodies that they (Dems) constantly try to create in order to create an order or class of people that will then be “beholden” to them FOR that goody!!!
Well, how many times in your life (if you are over the age of 25, or wise enough to have paid attention to politics your whole life if UNDER 25) have you heard the following kinds of statements:
- “Republicans want to gut social security!”
- “Watch out! The GOP is going to repeal Roe vs. Wade!!!”
- “Be careful, seniors! Conservatives want to cut you Medicare benefits!!!
Now mind you, Dems just DID cut Medicare, and gave a boost to Medicaid. But you won’t hear that in the news very often, unless you look at the proper sources. But I digress…
What you are NOT hearing this election cycle so far are not only the “standard” mantras about what the GOP will take from you, but you are also not even hearing about the threat that the GOP and tea partier’s want to REPEAL Obama Care!!!
You mean, most on the left, and other more “blue dog” dems, are not out there touting the normal “fear” base tactics about what the right is likely to propose should they get into power? No? And at the same time, they are shunning Barry’s visits to their area, and choosing to appear without him? In fact, many of them (Dems) are stating that tax increases visa-vis allowing the expiration of the Bush tax cuts is a BAD idea!!!
Why would the left be running so far from the “most major accomplishment legislatively since the Civil Rights Act” that they won’t waste their time claiming, in ads, or on the stump, that America “better beware, or your health care rights will be greatly diminished or taken away” by the right if they come into power?
Why indeed… But of course, all of you who follow this closely know the answer.
It is because they all know it was unpopular, not read, not well legislated and vetted, and rammed down the throats of Americans because of nothing more than IDEOLOGICAL IMPETUS derived from recognition that the chance will or would not come again for DECADES. In other words, they knew the stars would not align again like this for a loooooooong time, especially once America saw how they made the sausage, and what they put in it.
Everywhere on the stump, Democrats are ignoring and evading Obama, and curiously, they are also not touting their grand generational-sized accomplishment of Obama Care, becauuuuussssse???
It, like other “acomplishments” of Barry and friends, are not popular, OR, even worse, are not working. And with the current deficits, many Americans are beginning to worry deeply about the cost of all this “stimulus” and “healthcare”.
Right now, 46% of Americans think the economy is worse than when Barry took office. 47% think it is because of Barry’s approaches and policies, while 36% think he has improved the economy. Oddly, that 36% runs just about perfectly in alignment with the number of tit sucking program leeches that vote Democrat no matter what….
Barry NOW wants to propose a $50 billion “stimulus” (they stopped calling it ‘stimulus’, as that is now unpopular) to carry out tasks such as fixing airline runways, installing high speed trains, roads, blah blah blah. In other words, that same shit that just didn’t work for about $800 billion, we want to try more of it.
Did anyone ever figure out that a majority of those jobs do NOT create long term employment, for ANYONE??? High speed railroads, maybe. But runways that are already in existence? Short term job to repair this thing, no new jobs after that. Highways and roads? Short term jobs, no long term jobs.
And the people who GET those jobs? What do THEY do? They make reeeealllly good union based government contract money, for 3-15 months, but what do they DO with that money? Well, they HOLD it of course, because they don’t know when they will work again, or if they will have a job after their “freeway” is done.
This is NOT sustainable growth.
With nothing to campaign on that they are proud of, and nothing more than rehashes of ideas that did not work the first time around, Dems are running from Barry on the campaign trail. Why?
Because America hates the ideas, and their lack of success, and this is evidenced by the fact that the majority of Dems will not campaign on preserving their most important achievement- which was, apparently, the health care bill.
Dems are not running on their ‘major achievement’, but ‘running from’.
Very telling, no?
