Election Advice To Dems That They Will Never Ever Take

Over at the Washington Post,  Republican Michael Gerson writes about the midterm shellscking,  focusing on the harm Obama caused Dems. You’re welcome to read that, and within he has some interesting advice

To be a national party, Democrats need to contend for rural and small-town voters, for older voters, for working-class white voters, for white Catholics, even for suburban evangelicals. This requires not just a populist economic message (which is important) but the recognition of a set of values — a predisposition toward social order, family and faith — that is foreign to most liberal bloggers and Democratic strategists. In Colorado, for example, Democrats tried to apply a blue-state strategy — emphasizing abortion rights and the supposed Republican “war on women” — in a purple state. It backfired. (In contrast, Bill Ritter was elected governor of Colorado in 2006 as a pro-life Democrat.) In the Obama era, nearly every cultural signal sent by the national Democratic Party would be applauded in the faculty lounge.

Especially focusing on the first half,  there is no way that Democrats would take that advice. The Oakland Raiders have a better chance of winning this year’s Super Bowl (they’re 0-8). Liberals despise the people mentioned. They tend to hate Southerners,  rural folks,  those in the Midwest,  all of whom they sneeringly refer to as Flyover County. Hicks. Rubes. Rednecks. Neanderthals. You’ve heard this before,  so I shan’t belittle the point, but they really do hate people who aren’t like themselves politically. Passionately. And certain groups like those mentioned. They are very intolerant people.

Which is interesting,  considering how many liberals are escaping their Blue areas,  which they have destroyed with their policies,  and coming to Red areas.

Anyhow,  more on the Democrat autopsy here. And here.

    Don’t even get me started on the leftist migration. They shit in their nest and now they want to go poop in somebody else’.

    Maybe they can teach the Red staters to take care of themselves instead of relying on the largesse of Blue states.

    And then they vote the same way, and mess up the red state, or do their damnedest to make it so. I’ve read there was a bumper sticker in Oregon, “Don’t Californicate Oregon”. It appears Oregon has been Californicated.

  5. Jeffery says:

    Red State citizens are older, more rural, have lower incomes, lower IQs, lower college graduation rates, fewer union members, more guns, more evangelicals and require more Federal subsidies. They have more Senators and Representatives in Washington, too.
