I feel for this poor schmuck who, after posting a long screed at Daily Kos on why the Democrats lost in 2004, had to post an update:
Update [2005-2-25 17:33:16 by Armando]: HProf points out my brain lock – the most important difference between 1996 and 2004 was the reemergence of national security as the single most important Presidential issue.
“Ooops! I knew I forgot something…” Like 9/11.
I feel for him because first, Democracy Guy got a hold of this and let the moonbat have it right between the eyes. And if that’s not bad enough, Blogdaddy weighs in just to make sure the entire planet knows what a numbskull this guy really is.
What this boils down to is simple: When is someone going to hit the Democratic party with a two-by-four upside the head to wake them out of their stupor?
Maybe in their heart of hearts, the liberals agree with Ward Churchill. Maybe they really believe that America had it coming and that any effort on our part to defend ourselves is somehow immoral. Perhaps this is why liberals do not believe that 9/11 changed anything and that anybody who mentions that tragic day or tries to formulate policy on the basis that it should never happen again is “playing politics.”
Honest, decent people can disagree on what to do to make us safer. But to start from the premise that we are at bottom, an evil nation that deserves to have our citizens slaughtered like cattle just so that some ephemeral satisfaction can be gleaned from seeing the United States brought down on the world stage is, well…sick.
The left has deconstructed its way into political oblivion. It remains to be seen if there’s enough sense left in the Democratic party to keep it from following lemming-like over the cliff into the abyss.
