The smug left: why Democrats don't discuss policy



Rush Limbaugh and John Kass each noticed the same thing about this DNC. Democrats are not talking issues.

Limbaugh said, "They’ve tried impeachment. They’ve tried Mueller. Look at what they didn’t mention last night. They didn’t talk about border walls. They didn’t talk about immigration. These are issues people care about! They didn’t talk about security. Personal, individual, national, they didn’t talk about it.

"They didn’t talk about the need to appoint judges, to win so that they get to pick the judges. They didn’t talk about Kavanaugh. Wouldn’t it have been ideal for Kamala Harris to revive what she did, how she deserved to be on this ticket because she was the ringleader of the get-Kavanaugh movement? And wouldn’t it have been a great time to explain to America why again Kavanaugh shouldn’t be on the Supreme Court?"

And Kass wrote, "As I keep telling you, when you hear politicians talking, pay attention to what isn't said. Train your eye to see the negative space between the dancers, because that, too, is often the story."

I agree with both men.

Democrats were big on anger, small on ideas.

Maybe Democrats know that things like Medicaid For All (that's what they really mean by Medicare For All) and gun confiscation are loser issues that they have to hide.

But there are two ways of looking at Nancy's statement that "we have to pass the bill so that you can find out what is in it." The common way is that she was trying to pull a fast one on the American people. Incremental socialism has been the Democrat Way since FDR died.

However, judging by how they act otherwise, what she was really saying is we are so right -- so brilliant -- that you commoners just cannot appreciate how good the works we are doing are for you. We are experts. We know what we are doing. Leave us alone while we solve all your problems at once.

Their ideas are so good, so stupendous, and so right that the deplorable dregs of society cannot fully appreciate their ideas. Their ideas are like the emperor's new clothes which are so fine that ignorant people cannot see them. They say he is naked. Hardy-har-har.

The big kahuna in the Democrat Party is Obama. His argument is always the debate is over. We must act now. If we wait, it will be too late.

He also likes to say history is on his side. Other Democrats who thought history was on their side include Jefferson Davis, James Buchanan, and George Wallace.

Democrats are a godless people who worship themselves. They see themselves as superior because so many of them have college degrees while those who disagree with them often did not attend college. Or they are women. Or they are not white. Or they are non-binary mermaids.

Democrats talk about honor and character and dignity, while using the FBI to spy on political opponents, sending street thugs to terrorize people, doxxing critics, and calling the president's daughter the C-word. It is crazy. They justify this because their opponents are beneath them; they must be because Democrats are so, so, so very right about everything.

Every debate is over the instant a Democrat makes a statement. If you dare disagree then you must be racist, sexist, or whatever the applicable pejorative is, because the debate is over because the Democrat has spoken.

Democrats have better things to do than explain their plans to America. Why make an intelligent case to America when you can bash President Donald John Trump.

They are super smart. Rachel Maddow has a doctorate from Oxford.

The pitiable thing is that by not explaining their plans, Democrats harm themselves.

Nobel physicist Richard Feynman said, "If you want to master something, teach it. A great way to learn is to teach."

I can see why. I mean you never know when one of the idiot kids will blurt out the emperor is naked -- and you will turn around and realize, hey, he is naked.

And laugh because that is how the story ends.

The emperor was the punchline.

  4. The Democrats are saying, give us power and we'll give you heaven. Refuse and we'll give you hell. Here's a foretaste of what hell is like now, so choose wisely!

  5. So we just got a call from the dealership re my wife’s car’s latest problem. Voles. AGAIN. This time they’ve chewed through the wiring in the engine compartment. Last time it was fuel line sensor next to the gas tank. I told her it was time to kill the voles. She reacted EXTREMELY NEGATIVELY to that idea. I found a different product for 20 bucks more - made in PA! - that apparently stinks up the ground so bad for their little vole noses that they pack up and move. And I won’t have to shell out $1k on an ongoing basis for car repairs.

    This to me is a great analogy for the current state of politics in this country. LibCommies are the voles. Her car is the economy. But we can’t kill the voles. What we must do instead is to make this country so fragrant with patriotism that the voles pack up and move, preferably to China. Thanks, I’m here all week.

    2. Rodents have always liked to chew on wires, but the problem is much greater now than it used to be back in the '50s or '60s.

      Car manufacturers discovered that soy-based insulation is both *cheaper* and more eco-friendly than petroleum-based insulation. So they were happy to put wiring in cars that critters find delicious, and it's all for the good of the Earth! (Not to mention their bottom line.)

      I've known several people who parked their car at an airport, and when they returned from their trip their car wouldn't start. Yes, the critters ate the wiring! Very expensive to repair, too.

    3. We had a giant rat in my wife's Camry. It would run back and fourth in the A/C ducts in the dashboard. Talk about nerve wracking. I finally caught the bastard with a rat trap in the trunk. It found its way back there through a channel in the roof. He was big. When I asked the dealer how they address that, he said they park the car over by their dumpster and open the hood. Eventually, they smell the dumpster and jump from the car to the dumpster - problem solved, except for any damage to the writing. Maybe when parking at the airport, people should put a plate of garbage on the ground nearby. Something that tastes better than soy wiring insulation.

    I have to respectfully disagree with you Don. Although your thoughts on Dumbocrat smugness is spot on, what Auntie Nan was acctually doing was accidentally admitting that neither she, nor any other CONgress critter (including those in the Senate) actually write the legislation anymore. They let lobbyists from the industry write the bills. This is so maddening, because, first, WTF do those CONgress critters do, if they don't write the bills they come up with? Isn't that part of their job when they were elected? And two, this is not how representative government is supposed to work in our constitutional republic. The people, NOT the industry being regulated, are supposed to be the benefactors of bills such as Obumblecare. Yet, they were not. The insurance industry, along with the medical industry were the benefactors, for the small price of campaign contributions. This is a sure sign that the legislature part of our constitutional republic, is broken, and corrupt.

  7. Biden's speech was soooo good the Daily Mail [a/k/a The Washington Post meets People Magazine] thought so much of it, that buried it halfway down on its website...I missed the speech, probably like most of America. The zealots watched, the rest of us watched our Netflix-es, Disney pay channel, etc. america's stuck at home with zero sports, outdoor dining or entertainment and the ratings still bottomed this week...viewership should've been up with the millions of COVID shut-in captive viewers. In 2016, with all the Summer distractions pre-COVID, and they were 20 higher. ZB

  8. The "educated strata" are long known to be more gullible than the less educated.

    “Why you fool, it’s the educated reader who CAN be gulled. All our difficulty comes with the others. When did you meet a workman who believes the papers? He takes it for granted that they’re all propaganda and skips the leading articles. He buys his paper for the football results and the little paragraphs about girls falling out of windows and corpses found in Mayfair flats. He is our problem. We have to recondition him. But the educated public, the people who read the high-brow weeklies, don’t need reconditioning. They’re all right already. They’ll believe anything.”

  9. Just a guess but I have a feeling when this election is over one way or another many of the U.S. Patriots are going to be awarded The Medal of Honor or Presidential Medal of Freedom from Trump. And I am guessing it's not going to be pretty.

    1. I just hope there aren't a lot of Purple Hearts in the awarded medals, but there probably will be.

      It's sad that my uniform shrank over the years since I last put it on, and the dang thing doesn't fit anymore!

  10. In my many arguments about politics with liberals, they often say "you don't understand", or "you have to understand what I'm saying". I then tell them, "oh, I understand you completely, that is why I can so confidently disagree with you." They can't comprehend disagreement. They think that when someone disagrees, that is really a cry for help to be re-educated by them.

    One other thing I notice is how liberals seem to think that the rest of us are thirsting for their moral teachings. I should make a t-shirt that says "hey liberals, your morals stink!"

    2. The problem I have with liberal arguments is the constant quoting of the NY Times, Washington Post, CNN, NBC, etc. The articles they refer to have been totally debunked, but still they cling to it with no open mind. That in turn leaves me with a closed mind.

  11. No. Democrats were big on anger, bigger on ideas. The problem is that you, the voters, wouldn't understand. You would lack the vision and the moral superiority and might question whether these ideas might work. When you disagree you lack understanding. You also lack patience, because utopia doesn't come in a day. Eventually no prisons, no walls, no meritocracy,free everything and no individual responsibility will pay off. By not explaining their plans, Democrats DO NOT harm themselves, or not nearly as much as if they did explain their plans.

  14. Can anyone name a city, county or state run by Democrats that is well run, safe, prosperous? They can't manage a soup kitchen when they get power. They rule by emotion not logic or facts. Being in power is the ultimate high and their goal. Politics are all about getting seat at the taxpayers trough and getting as rich and powerful as you can. Always follow the money aka the Bidens... Politicians are mostly grifters and that both parties.
