DEMOCRATS AND INVISIBLE LIBERALISM - THE SUNDAY COMMENTARY

The 2006 Mid Term election are just over a week away. The races are tighter than ever and the political atmosphere is dominating much of the news commentary both on television and in the nations newspapers. The percieved tide of momentum by the Democrats has faded to the point that even many long time Democrat stratagists are cautioning the notion portrayed by the Dems that the House will change hands and the Senate is up for grabs. They stress that this tide that supposedly would carry the Demcorats into the majority is not the confident reality that many in the media and the Demcorat leadership believed. So many races by all measurements are tight and the final weeks push before election day will find the usual increase in political adds as charges and counter charges that always accompany any election. The President is barn storming the nation for GOP candidates as well as many GOP leaders to bring home the message to the voters and retain control of both chambers of Congress. In this final push before election day though I have noticed a very telling absense in the political arena as well as an equally telling presence in many campaigns that are being run by Democrats. The absense is so obvious especially when one considers how often this absent entity made its appearence prior to the final weeks of the election. The presence that I refer to is also equally obvious when one considers that it was virtually non-existant before the election cycle began. I know by now that you are wondering, " what in the world I am thinking about ?" Now that I have sparked your attention we'll look at each individually.

The absence - Something that has been blatantly absent from the political arena as we have neared and now entered the final approach to the Mid Term election are the voices and faces before the cameras of most of the liberal Demcocrat leadership including the DNC chairman Howard Dean. On a daily basis before the election cycle began in ernest, whenever political news clips aired during any news program on any channel or radio news break you could depend on seeing or hearing Howard Dean, Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, Ted Kennedy, John Kerry, Barbara Boxer, John Murtha, Hillary Clinton and a miriad of other liberals before a press gathering, stopping to make a comment on whatever subject was prominant that particlular day or a clip from a speech made to a liberal gathering. They dominated the Sunday talking heads and the talk show curcuit blasting the President and lamenting the," dire," condition that the nation was in. Yet now that the nation is nearing the election of all House members, one third of the Senate and numerous Governorships as well as other state and local offices these liberal Democrat leaders are MIA. Now I realize that some are campaigning for their own seat in either the House or Senate but Pelosi supposedly has a lock on her San Francisco district, Hillary too has a demanding lead yet other than the now infamous, "measuring the drapes, " 60 Minutes interview last week Pelosi, who never missed an opportunity to meet the press was even MIA after the President signed the bill for the border fence. Kennedy, Kerry, Dean and Reid who are constantly before the cameras and who always find any and every way to criticize the President and the GOP have been virtually non-existant. The only explanation that I can gather from this is now that the voters are watching closely do these stalwarts of liberalism fear that their liberal rhetoric will turn voters away from the Democrats? Most pundints agree that the majority of the country is decidedly conservative in values and thinking which disagrees with the liberal message which is why these liberal leaders do not want to be heard or seen before an election. If they spew the usual liberal rhetoric which has been rejected time and again by the voters then those same voters will see and realize the true face of the Demcorat Party and again turn them away at the polls. Before the final election push this liberal message falls greatly on deaf ears for many likely voters are not daily news junkies and only catch mommentary clips on radio or news briefs during their hectic daily schedule. During the final approach to any election nearly all likely voters pay close attention to news and other political outlets so the liberal leadership remains quiet so as not to damage the Demcrat chances of being elected. The rank and file Democrats who claim to be liberal are not ashamed of their liberal beliefs and readily speak of them at any time but their leadership only tout this rhetoric when they think it won't hurt their chances at being elected by a vastly conservative electorate. They hide their true liberal face for possible political gain which reveils their true intellectual dishonesty.

The presence - This too is as obvious as the absence of the liberal leadership. Across the nation especially in races that the Demcorats viewed a vulnerable the party fielded a candidate who claims to lean to a more conservative ideal and value though a member of the Democrat Party. I realize that there are conservative Democrats but the appearance of so many in this election cycle again confirms that fact that the liberal agenda is rejected by the voters and if fielding or just portraying a Democrat candidate as a conservative will win the election then that is what the left will do. Their strategy behind this is to lure the voters into believing that their beliefs and values will be followed by the Democrat Party long enough to gain a majority control of the Congress then if that control is gained push the liberal agenda which the leadership of the party and those in Congress intend regardless of what the voter thinks. After all they know what is best for we the people and if they have to decieve in order to insure that they are in power and save the voters from their own ignorance than so be it. Though there are many races that follow this plan I will only give three examples. The Tennessee Senate race is a prime example of this Demcorat strategy. The race between Republican Bob Corker and Demcorat Harold Ford is a hotly contested race because it is the seat currently held by out going Senate Majority Leader Bill Frist who is leaving the Senate to prepare for a possible Presidential run in 2008. Corker is a moderate to conservative Republican while Ford is a somewhat moderate Demcorat who touts some conservative ideas. For instance he continually expresses his parting from the Democrat leadership on hot social issues like gay marriage to sound conservative yet his Congressional voting record on the war and other stalworth Democrat issues is decidedly liberal. On the House side of the election in one Colorado district the Republican incumbant is running against a Democrat challenger who is pro- gun, anti-abortion, anti-gay marriage and running on this platform. This conservative look by Democrats is not confined to just the national stage. In my own state of South Carolina Republican conservative Governor Mark Sanford is challenged by Democrat Tommy Moore who is a state legislator. As a state legislator Moore is a tax and spend liberal who voted for nearly every tax increase that has been proposed during his tenure yet he is running as a fiscal conservative despite this record to the contrary.

How stupid does the Democrat Party think the voter is? Evidently considerably since these tacticts have been used in the last several elections and even more so in this one. Fortunatly this conservative portrayal to gain control in order to push a liberal agenda once in power is not taking with the voting public as past elections have proven and current trends are showing. The voter would much rather Democrats show their honesty and run on their liberal agenda instead of the deception to gain office. This does not necessarily mean they would win but they would find respect from the voters instead of the distaste that they currently recieve. But of course respect and honesty is not what liberal Democrat politicians desire only power at all cost.

I'm not sure why you think there is a big change in the predictions. The House looks like it will turn over, and the Senate still looks to be in play - although as I (and most analysts) have been saying Dems will pick up seats (probably 3-4) but it is not likely to turn over.

Bush is barnstorming? Most candidates don't want to be seen in public with him.

It is interesting you brought up the Corker-Ford race. You would think that the seat of the retiring Senate majority leader would be safe - it isn't.

Every election tightens at the end, but there is nothing that I see that makes me think the House won't turn over. I've thought this for the last couple of months, and we'll see.

Yes, we will definitely see, won't we? I don't have a chrystal ball, but I believe a lot more conservatives will turn out than the Democrats think. There are more of us out here than the Democrats even realize. I believe your post is right on, Ken. The Democrats do turn most reasonable people off every time they open their mouths. They certainly are week on defense, and they will raise taxes, and they don't have an agenda of any sort other than to bash Bush, and all of that is well known by anyone who is paying any attention at all.

So, like Rob said: We will see. :)

You guys on the right will retain the Senate, barely, but the ship has sailed on the House. As far as dems running as conservatives, not really happening here in VA, we have a conservative dem, Webb, running against a Bush robot chickenhawk. If being "conservative" is spending like Rush in a Dominican cathouse on a handful of viagra, running up over 6 trillion in debt and financing it on credit from the Chicoms, then I think it best not to run as one. Somewhere in Arizona Barry Goldwater is rolling over in his grave at what happened to his movement.

Rob, I am still of the thinking that as the actual election results are counted as has been the case in the last two elections when pundints counted out the GOP even to the point that exit polls all but gave 04 to Kerry the GOP will still have both chambers. I think that a loss of 5-6 seats in the House and Senate not much change. As we have both said only the 7th will tell.

Thanks Gayle like you I believe that when voters are faced with their own conscience at the polls they will vote in favor of security and a strong economy which equates to the GOP

Elvez73, welcome first of all I believe that this is the first time I can remember seeing you comment. I agree that Goldwater and Reagan would be disappointed in the GOP's spending practices but the alternative with a Dem Congress is not inviting at all. The GOP has drifted from the conservative base which is why we have many disagreement with the party but when we express our voice they do listen as the Harriet Myers nomination shows.

“Somewhere in Arizona Barry Goldwater is rolling over in his grave at what happened to his movement.”

To some degree you may be right. HOWEVER, don’t think for a moment that he would be on the side of the liberal democrats that are weak on national security issues. I feel he would, as many voters will next week, vote with the idea that nothing in this country matters if we do not protect ourselves. Yes, I am sure you will jump on the “well there is an open border” bandwagon. No, we on the right are not perfect, however we do feel we must listen to our enemy, we must interrogate them, and we must kill them over where they live… not send the FBI to try and fetch them in order to bring them to trial here.

I feel THAT is what will be in the front of the majority of common sense and informed voters on election day.

"Extremism in the defense of liberty is no vice! Moderation in the pursuit of justice is no virtue!" Want to take a guess at who said that?

Justice for a terrorist is death in a barren land, not the ability to live better here in jail than overseas while appealing verdicts until a ripe old age.

Spot-on post.

I tend to believe that this silence from the left is the sum total of all their platforms. As Gayle said above, the only thing we've heard from the Democrats thusfar in this century has been Bush-bashing. I don't believe I've heard or read a single constructive (or any, for that matter) alternative to any of Dubya's policies from any of the portside crowd, there's only the anti-Bush rhetoric. They've compared him with Hitler, they've called him a terrorist... Just the kind of thing that turns the average American voter off.

Another observation in your post was that the Democrats tend to say whatever they have to in order to win elections, then once in, they revert to their liberal agendas despite the will of the voters who put them there. This is true enough to shout from the rooftops. How, for example, could any Democrat insult the public's intelligence by saying he or she is strong on defense when that entire party has been battling Bush's efforts to protect our country every step of the way, rather than supporting the President in time of war? Oh, that's right, Islamofascism hasn't declared war on us; 9/11, the embassy bombings Bubba did nothing about, the U.S.S. Cole, all those were just the acts of "criminals", we're not at war. Call the cops. How could any Democrat say he or she supports a strong economy when Nancy Pelosi went on record not long ago as saying her first priority as Speaker of the House would be to use the Democrats' hoped for majority to roll back taxes to 1990s levels?

Sorry, but I don't even buy "We'll see". The Democrats have done most of the campaigning for the Republicans this time out, and it seems to me they've done an excellent job of it.

Goldwater regreted saying extremeism is no vice. It's dishonest to include that statement, and then leave out that salient fact.

You guys are correct in criticising the left for the irrational hatred of W, the endless Hitler comparisons ad nauseum, but this is a mirror image of the rights blind hatred of Clinton, quid pro quo my friends. I am a somewhat conservative Southern Democrat, I did not vote for W in 2000, but it was close, after 9-11 I absolutely was glad that W was in the Oval Office and I remember the swell of pride and the lift in spirits that his bullhorn speech at ground zero inspired in me. I was and still am completely behind the invasion of Afghanistan, but as it became clear that the cabal of neocons in the Administration were running roughshod over foreign policy, against the sage advise of Powell and others, I saw W as an incompetent leading us down a dreadful path. My Grandfather is 75 years old and has only voted for one Dem his whole life, Truman, but he is voting straight Democratic here in VA this year I don't think his feelings are unique. We must reform our foreign policy, and we have to stop the unprecedented government spending. The GOP are mortaging our childrens future. I hate the Dem leadership, Pelosi is a buffon, and Reid is an ineffective nobody, but they can't do much worse that Dennyboy and the Tan Man.

Mudkitty --

That's interesting. I haven't seen any, which leads me to believe that those Republicans dumb and ignorant enough to employ such innuendo are low profile types.

The problem with the same coming from the left is that it comes from higher profile sources and is infinitely more visible to the voting public.

If you want to see the kind of racism and immature innuendo that comes from the left, take a gander at the back of the book jacket on Michelle Malkin's "Unhinged", where she lists some of the stuff liberals say about her -- including terms like "gook".

Or look at comments by Democrat politicians like John Murtha, when he compared GITMO to the gulag, the Nazi death camps and the "killing fields of the Pol Pot regime".

It's high profile sourced remarks like this that hurt the Democrats at the polls -- the American people aren't stupid, they know a gross exaggeration when they hear one and know when someone's insulting their intelligence.

IMHO, the silence we now hear from congressional Democrats would have been a much more effective campaign strategy.

Thay have effectively talked themselves out of winning a majority.
