Thanks for NOTHING DNC! Brazile! Dean! And YOU – you fraud! Yes YOU up there in that public housing at 1600 PA Ave! This Rasmussen report story certainly says it all. The voters they surveyed now trust the Republicans more than Dems on a whole array of issues. The economy. National Security. (Ok I give them that one- it seems the R’s have always had more trust on that one.) Iraq. Iraq? Correct me if I am wrong but isn’t that “Bush’s” war? Weren’t people protesting in the streets against the Republican president and his cronies over that bit of business? But now they trust the R’s more?
Alright then. Iraq and National Security aside- this poll says people trust the Republicans more on health care. HEALTH CARE? THE signature Democratic Party issue for umpteen years? Health care that Hillary worked so hard for? Wait here please while I check the temperature in Hades.
Ok I am back. Yup. It is damn cold down there.
The parties are nearly tied on the issue of Social Security, with Republicans holding a statistically insignificant 42% to 40% lead. In May, Democrats barely edged the GOP on this issue.
SOCIAL SECURITY?????? OY Vey! Oh they might call is “statistically insignificant” (like us bitter clingers) but think about it. The R’s having ANY kind of lead on Social Security is the equivalent of a 10.0 earthquake.
How about this chart that lays out the naked truth.
The only category where Dem’s were trusted more was education. And we see how that is working out for us don’t we? The damn Dept of Education gives us broken schools and children who are so stupid they can not count the money they get in their graduation cards.
We watched it happen. The DNC gave the Democratic Party a poison pill in May of 08. In Denver that summer they thought they were having a coronation. In reality we watched our party have a self inflicted massive coronary. The DNC , instead of excising the cancer, allowed it to take over. Now we get to watch the funeral.
No wonder it is so hot up here. Hell has frozen over and all that heat had to go somewhere.
This is an open thread. I will try to check in as I can in between packing and getting ready to go.
