Don't Fall For The Propaganda

I don't care how many times I hear it, I refuse to believe that significant numbers of conservatives will stay home in November and thereby assist the Democratic Party to regain control of Congress.

Democrats and the Old Media have been working hard to create this perception for several months, citing poll after poll to support their claims. It reminds me of the exit poll manipulation orchestrated by the Old Media and Democrat operatives in 2004 to create the GOP-deflating perception that John Kerry was winning big.

But with the unveiling of the Foley scandal, there is an even bigger spring to their step -- kind of like their perverse, gleeful reaction to problems with the delayed federal response to Hurricane Katrina.

Before Foley I gave conservatives more credit than to believe they would sit this election out over their disillusionment with Republicans concerning immigration and domestic spending. My confidence remains after Foley as well, despite push polling and other techniques designed to discourage conservative turnout.

Conservatives are generally rational creatures and sophisticated enough to understand that the national interest will not be served by turning national security over to a party wholly incapable of safeguarding it for the sake of punishing Republicans.

My vote will be cast in Michigan where Foley has never run for office.

"And I especially don't believe social conservatives, because of their disappointment with Republicans over Foley, will turn to a militantly secular Democratic leadership to protect Washington pages from sexual predators."

Look what they did in the Studds case, and what party was that guy from whose intern was found dead in the park?

I take any poll conducted by the Democrat media or a university, and add 5-10 points for the Republican. These polls have demonstrated repeatedly to have a Democratic bias. Sometimes this may be intentional, sometimes not, but nevertheless it is there. Remember how the exit polls gleefully predicted President Kerry in 2004? Nothing has changed, in fact, I believe the bias is even stronger this year. The Democratic media believes if it repeats a lie often enough, it will become fact.

36% Feel House Speaker Hastert Should Resign

Rassmussen did a poll on Foleygate. Out of ALL respondents, Democrats and Republicans only 36% felt Hastert should go, 64% either did not or did not care.

Pretty much nukes the "Everyone hates the GOP" story line being spread by Donner Party "Conservatives" now does it not?

Then there is this little gem. HERE is what happened after Watergate.

http://www.ashbrook.org/publicat/oped/busch/06/1974.html

When the votes were counted, Democratic hopes had been realized. Republicans lost 48 House seats, five Senate seats, and statehouse after statehouse. The Democratic scythe cut most deeply in previously Republican suburbs where concerns about the economy and clean government resonated strongly.

Watergate, the start of one of the worst recessions in US History and Ford pardoning Nixon. Lutz et al are telling us THIS year is going to be worse. Worse? A booming economy? A scandal no one but the Always Angry care about, A war no where near as unpopular as Vietnam is going to result in WORSE fall out for the GOP then 1974?

One suspects the Donner Party "Conservatives" are merely HOPING it will be worse. After all these are the clowns who gave us the absurd "Win by losing" dogma of the politically suicidal.

I visited a friend this weekend, a Democrat in Chris Chocola's district. He AND his very Democrat girlfriend were pissed at the "scam" pulled by the media and the Democrats.

They were on the fence in the Congressional race....until the Foley matter.

Only local Dems will get their vote this year.


Thank you Brian Ross. 2 more for our side.

I do not believe conservatives will deliver control to the party of tax and spend because Republicans haven't done enough to curb domestic spending. My assessment is reinforced by news that the Bush tax cuts have unleashed a robust economy and explosive federal revenues that have reduced the deficit to 2 percent of GDP, lower than the 2.7 percent average of the last 40 years.

I don't believe conservatives will conspire to assign control over immigration to the wide-open border Democrats, notwithstanding the Republicans' tardy and so-far inadequate response to the immigration problem. My assessment is reinforced by news that Congress passed a measure to erect a 700-mile border fence. Conservative angst forced recalcitrant politicians to act. This is how you get results -- not by replacing a highly imperfect party with an incomparably egregious one.

And I especially don't believe social conservatives, because of their disappointment with Republicans over Foley, will turn to a militantly secular Democratic leadership to protect Washington pages from sexual predators. My assessment is reinforced by the immediate resignation of Foley and the Republican leadership's initiation of comprehensive investigations into the matter, promising full accountability for culpable Republicans.

Guess what? Turns out I left my TV on CBS when I left the room and came back to their nightly news and found myself learning that Americans now view Republicans as more corrupt by a 2-1 margin. Isn't that something? I was incredibly moved by this knowledge imparted to me by the talking head. ::snickering::

I said it yesterday, this is smacking of a Dewey headline repeat if the Libs keep this up...

Do you think I could get them to mail me "early and often" so I could send my absentee ballotS back early and often. If I could I would and Foley is just another reason why ?

I do not condone what he did it is how and when the Dems put this together to effect the election which is at mind.

Imagine Pelosi as "Speaker of the House" and she is buried in this tmely scandal UP TO HER EARS.

Nope Get out the vote and make all of our votes count.
