Democrats Seem Poised to Alienate Voters Over Roberts

The question is, which voters?


  • None of the issues they plan to use seem likely to help get them with the general public, though they should play well to the base.

  • The "be kind to terrorists" issue should hurt the party a lot with the general electorate.

  • Complaining that Roberts won't impose gay rights against the country's will is also a negative for Dems.

  • And complaining that Roberts should answer questions, but Ginsberg was "another time," will just look like whining, and unfairness by the Dems.

  • Most people won't care about the Arroyo Toad, and will wonder how that's 'Interstate Commerce' -- especially after Kelo.

  • The abortion issue is a small net positive for Republicans.

  • The 'french fry' case is the only one that has resonance, and Roberts's statement that he didn't like the police actions should protect him there.

      Overall, it looks like Democrats will insist on shooting themselves in the foot again.  Are they really this stupid, or are they so dependent on their base that they won't say 'No,' even when they need to?

      "Reply hazy, try again later."

THE HOUSE OF SAUD MUST BE DESTROYED -- AND WILL BE!
