Because public perception, not reality, has been the only reason Republicans have gained and maintained control for so long, the fruits of their ideology have soured the public’s misplaced confidence. That doesn’t mean they won’t try repeating the negative myths they have framed around the Democratic Party for years.
The one problem is, this time around, the Democrats are the ones making sense. Which brings me to the next story.
From Raw Story, Diane Sweet writes: Michigan Republican Rep. Thaddeus McCotter took to the House floor this week and gave a speech entitled 'Speaking Democrat: A Primer' complete with charts and ruler. He had himself video taped during the 'presentation,' and uploaded it to YouTube.
It has been instructive. Anyone want to meet these guys in the middle over important legislation? Impossible. The frame is complete. Pure propaganda. Packaged fantasy. Factually vacuous. A traitorous party of appeasers. It’s a wonder liberals aren’t rounded up and imprisoned forever under the new Scalia Detention System (SDS).
We're going to learn how to speak Democrat today.
Often we hear the word progressive, which translates into regressive, as used in a sentence, democrats are progressive. Democrats are regressive…Democrats will bring you change. Translation, Democrats will bring you the 1970's…Government means socialism. Democrats support proactive government. Translation, Democrats support proactive socialism.
Democrats will enhance revenues. Translation, Democrats will raise taxes…Democrats will only tax the rich. Translation, Democrats will only tax you. Ouch…Democrats will invest your money. Translation, Democrats will waste your money…Energy means lethargy. Democrats have an energy policy. Translation, Democrats have a lethargy policy…Green collar jobs translates into unemployment. Democrats will replace your blue collar jobs with green collar jobs translates into Democrats will replace your blue collar jobs with unemployment…Engage means appease. Democrats will engage America’s enemies. Translates, Democrats will appease America’s enemies…Importantly, end means lose. Democrats will end the Iraq war. Translation, Democrats will lose the Iraq war…And finally, as a regressive party, the Democrats will bring you the 1970's by using socialism to raise taxes from you to waste in the production of lethargy and unemployment and by using magic to appease America’s enemies and lose the Iraq war.
I hope this exercise has been instructive. ..."
