And if wishes and buts were candy and nuts . . .
then Democrats would all be fat.
Rep. Nancy Pelosi (Moonbat-CA) gave an interesting press conference yesterday. Pelosi claimed
Democrats should not seek a unified position on an exit strategy in Iraq, calling the war a matter of individual conscience and saying differing positions within the caucus are a source of strength for the party.Really? That's an interesting interpretation of the past three elections, to say the least.
But the money quote was this:
[Pelosi] said that [ethics issues and the] ethical climate in the country point to Democratic gains next year, and noted that if the elections were held today, Democrats would take control of the House.Same story, different verse.
I seem to recall similar claims made in 1998, 2000, 2002 and 2004. Why will this time be any different?
The problem with the Democrats is that the party lacks any core unifying beliefs and issues that resonate with the majority of Americans. Until Democrats decide what they stand for, they will continue to decline in power and influence.
