Bush 41 lost to Clinton because he agreed to raise taxes in exchange for the Dem's promise to cut spending. Of course, they lied, spending wasn't cut, and he lost. The House Republicans recently agreed to raise taxes while Obama promised to cut spending. What happened? Taxes were raised, spending wasn't cut, and now Obama wants even more tax revenue. See a pattern here?You canít say you care about the debt after blowing the surplus and swearing to all-powerful Grover that youíll never raise taxes.
You canít say youíre for a smaller government and then use the government to decide how many forced ultrasounds a woman has to endure to make a medical choice.
You canít say youíre for fiscal discipline and let Mitt Romney pay a lower tax rate than most nurses.
You canít say youíre for families and stop millions of Americans from getting the same access to marriage that you have.
You canít accuse groups that donít exist of stealing elections and then spend millions making it difficult for anyone but rich, white men to vote.
You canít say you love America and be unable to contain your hatred for the President, the First Lady and anyone who doesn't vote Republicans.
People may not know President Obama has cut the deficit each year heís been in office or that Ronald Reagan actually socialized medicine. But they get it when theyíre being treated like a fool. And there is no messaging, no rebranding that will make that okay with most people.
And speaking of elections, what's wrong with making sure only CITIZENS vote, as our laws require? The left gets all offended when voter ID is required, and for what reason? You have to show ID to fly, buy beer and cigarettes, go to the movies (if they're other than G rated), and enter government buildings and courthouses. Why not also to vote, because it's one of the biggest responsibilities we have as Americans, and must not be abused? Are you afraid your candidates can't win without illegal votes? Probably so, because history shows that the dead have voted heavily Democratic in Chicago and elsewhere for years.
