Liberals: They Don't Get It and Never Will

The Democratic Party liberals and the liberal media columnists really don't understand what's happening in this election. It's the same thing that happened in the two recent Bush elections and they didn't get it then either. Liberals don't understand conservative values and viewpoints and don't relate well with blue-collar people despite the fact that they clearly represents the economic and health-care interests of blue-collar people much better than the Republicans. The Liberals keep thinking elections should be about ideas, principles, and programs for the voters. The Republicans understand that presidential elections are about whether or not the people can relate to the candidates.

It doesn't matter whether Governor Palin understands the so-called "Bush Policy" or that she continually misrepresents her position on the Bridge to No Where. It doesn't matter what McCain says or how he says it because now he is in the groove and will bash Obama to oblivion until Election Day. It doesn't matter that the McCain campaign lies when it says Obama will raise everybody's taxes. What matters is that enough voters have decided that they can relate to McCain, or feel more comfortable with him, or what ever, than they do with Obama. That determines how people vote.

I was reading columns in the New York Times and was struck by the liberal columnists' predictable reactions to Governor Palin's interview with Charlie Gibson. Gail Collins pointed out that Governor Palin misrepresented what she previously said about the effects of what our societies do on global warming. Paul Krugman pointed out that Governor Palin misrepresented what she originally said about the Bridge to Nowhere. He also pointed out the blatant lies coming out of the McCain campaign. In its editorial on September 12th, the New York Times stated about Governor Palin, “Her answers about why she had told her church that President Bush’s failed policy in Iraq was “God’s plan” did nothing to dispel our concerns about her confusion between faith and policy. Her claim that she was quoting a completely unrelated comment by Lincoln was absurd." None of this matters. Millions of people have decided that Governor Palin is okay and they can relate to her.

End of story. End of election. Will the Liberals learn anything from this election? Not a chance.

Check your stats. Obama's up, and my bet is will continue to stay up until he wins the election.
