"Chief among them is the recent debut of the Democratic "strategy"
of hurling "pocketbook" legislation at Republicans that has no chance of
passing."You mean like the 50+ attempts to overturn
Obamacare?Or partisan budgets that had no chance from the onset?This is politics. Not R or D, but politics that they both play. I find it a
bit funny that you only see the D's playing that game. Especially with so
many recent, very obvious examples.
Underestimating the intelligence of the American public? Reality television not
only exists, but is popular. I draw conclusions on the intelligence of the
American public from that.
Two and Two before. The American public includes all those that are elected.
The giddy tone of this piece makes it sound like GOP gains at the polls this
fall is being taken for granted by at least one conservative columnist.
A lot of Americans are not as dumb as Ms. Parker claims. We watched Karl Rove
and Dick Morris proclaim Mitt Romney was going to be the next President of
America and did not beleive a word they were saying.
Would that be he 50+ "repeal obamacare" pieces of legislation that
actually passed the house, or the multiple budget legislation proposals that
actually passed the house? As compared to the one issue ms parker, the alleged
conservative commentator, suggests might get out of the senate. Please go on
again about how the anointed one you worship and your hero harry are such
leaders and unifiers!!
Though I voted for Obama both times, I'm feeling its time for a change. I
appreciate the fact that because of him, all Americans can have access to decent
health care. But I hated the fact that president Obama works against the right
to keep and bear Arms, i.e. the ability of people to defend themselves and their
families. I don't like the fact that he gives so much lip service to
global warming but he thinks nothing of taking more vacations than any other
president in history (Remember that just to take he and his family someplace
takes an entire 747). Once he sent his family to Hawaii on one flight of the
747, then a few days later flew there himself.
I agree with Bill O'Reilly's assessment on the American public.You have your "traditionalists" that want to hold onto what they
see are past good American values.You have your "secular
progressives" that want to push for some social change and don't
necessarily agree with traditional values.Then you have your
"mall zombies." That latter term speaks for itself. These are the
people that have little interest in politics except when it somehow for some
reason directly effects their lives. Until then, they like to shop or hang out
in the mall and watch reality TV. Maybe the male versions are into video games.
Mall zombies by far are the largest group in America today.
