Carol Platt Liebau: "Portraying" Reality

"Portraying" Reality

Can't slip nuthin' past those Democrats and their friends in the press. Today, Ron Brownstein notes a very valid concern: That the Democrats' over-the-top attacks on President Bush's efforts to protect America (including the NSA's warrantless surveillance of international calls)"may allow Bush to portray Republicans as stronger than Democrats in fighting terrorism, as he did in the 2002 and 2004 campaigns."

Well, yes, and reality would, in fact, play a pretty significant role in such a "portrayal."

Are they just figuring this out? Others gleefully noted some time ago that the Democrats were marginalizing themselves once again.

Assuming I understood you coorectly, that you were in fact pointing out the obvious, which is that the democrats are continuing to slip further and further into a parellel universe, I agree with you totally. There is only a slight percentage of them that seem to be of the more traditional democratic belief that was philisophically different, yet remained grounded in reality. Those days are gone. And before too long we will see this country slip from a (majority) two party govt. into a single party (rep) govt. then very quickly explode out into all the other little parties. I think our friends in the democratic party will soon become a minority even against the fringe parties. Any how, enjoyed your opinion, thanks for hearing mine.

Reasonably well-grounded in reality democrats sadly seem to number only two on the national scene - if you want to include New York City. Joe Lieberman and Ed Koche!

Zell Miller is also a good democrat, but is considered by MSM and MSDs (if Kennedy, Kerry, Dean, and company can be considered main stream) as a traitor. Imagine, a democrat who defends America is a traitor. Hmmmmm! Wonder what that makes Murtha, Pelosi, Reid, and the above mentioned jackasses?

Dem leadership is seeing that writ large in their internal polls it would seem.

Starting to see them get on TV with "well of course we support Bush in his fight against terrorism..." unfortunately there is still a "but" attached to it.

I think the "how" of it would be easier to discuss if the Dems were more vocal in their support of the objective. Right now though they don't strike me as trustworthy.
