Dems Try To Motivate Voters By Insulting Them

This seems like a bad idea:

Massachusetts Senator John Kerry, [said] “We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening.”

This week President Obama chimed in with another uplifting message about the American electorate. Mr. Obama told Rolling Stone that the tea party movement is financed and directed by “powerful, special-interest lobbies.” But this doesn’t mean that tea party groups are composed entirely of corporate puppets. Mr. Obama graciously implied that a small subset of the movement is simply motivated by bigotry.

The President said “there are probably some aspects of the Tea Party that are a little darker, that have to do with anti-immigrant sentiment or are troubled by what I represent as the President.”

Vice President Joe Biden recently urged the party’s base to “stop whining” and “buck up,” a message echoed by Mr. Obama in his Rolling Stone interview. The President demanded that his supporters “shake off this lethargy,” warning that it would be “inexcusable” for liberals to stay home on Election Day.

Mr. Obama added that “if people now want to take their ball and go home, that tells me folks weren’t serious in the first place.”

That’s how it always is with this bunch. 

They even fathom the possibility that just over half of the voters in 2008 thought they were voting for a post-partisan moderate guy, ended up with a nasty, incompetent, historically-challenged radical President paired with a Congress controlled by similarly-minded hard-core leftists, and that a big chunk of them regret the mistake and want to undo it as best they can.  No, that can’t be it. 

The voters must be throwing a temper tantrum, inattentive and influenced by slogans instead of the truth, flat-out crazy, or just plain bigotted fools. 

And by the way, let’s remember the empty slogans used in 2008  — Yes we can!, We are the ones we’ve been waiting for!  It seems that the people who got influenced by simple slogans instead of the truth — that Obama was an unprincipled, inexperienced, leftist radical with a redistributivist agenda rather than a god-like figure of historic greatness — and should have been paying more attention are the ones who voted for Obama.
