In the last six weeks, the Democrats have demonized the Koch Brothers 117 times on the floor of the United States senate. Clearly, this is not about two businessmen using their fortune to champion libertarian, free market principles… even though the Democrats hate those things. This is about the Democrats needing a demon to drive their dumb, low information, emotion-driven base to the polls.
Obviously, Democrats can’t run on their policies. Obamacare is a disaster. The Chevy Volt is a disaster (and, by the way, Government Motors has been literally killing people and the Obama Regime has been covering it up). The Obama Regime’s “Speak Like a Pompous Idiot and Carry a Tiny Twig” foreign policy is a disaster. Once Democrats get beyond their basic “We’re going to take money away from people you don’t like and give it to you” appeals to the FSA (e.g. the Minimum Wage increase, “Paycheck Protection”), the Democrats don’t have any ideas or successes to run on; and so, they have chosen to make a pair of Libertarian businessmen into demons, and use the awesome power of hate to get their people to the polls.
And Republicans make a mistake if they look at the deranged rants of Harry Reid and say, “Who could possibly believe this crazy sh-t?” Sane people asked the same question in 2012 when Harry Reid was ranting that Mitt Romney didn’t pay his taxes, and the Obama campaign accused Mitt Romney of giving a woman cancer and wanting to outlaw tampons and contraceptives. “Who could possibly believe this crazy sh-t?” we asked.
And then we got our answer: 51% of the electorate bought into the Democrats crazy sh-t.
It worked before it could work again. It helps a lot when the MFM are also in on the act. Just yesterday, the left-wing media was spreading the bald-faced lie that Mitch McConnell said the Demcorats had a “crazy obsession” with equal pay for women. And the MFM will do their best to help the Democrats in 2014; seizing on the gaffes of Republicans and ignoring the outright corruption of Democrats like Mr. Charlie Rangel, Mr. Elijah Cummings, Senator Bob Menendez, and the felonies of Democrats like Leland Yee.
And the Republicans are doing their best to help the Democrats with their strategy of … proposing no policy alternatives, quietly caving to Obama on any potentially contentious issue, and picking unnecessary fights with the conservative wing of the party and, in some cases, even actively helping to advance advance the Democrat “narrative” that Republicans are racist.
The Republicans should have learned in 2012; crazy, angry, and stupid can win elections if it isn’t countered.
