Liberals in Denial   October 2nd, 2009
The danger of believing your own propaganda       


More observations...

It would appear that liberals are in denial--perhaps because they are now believing your own propaganda.

Just briefly: As I was driving home this evening I turned on Air America. I don't know who it was (and I checked the radio station's website and it doesn't say), but she was making the assertion with some liberal member of congress that despite the town halls in August, support for the public option has supposedly remained steady at 65%!

In other words, according to this liberal talk show host, 2 out of 3 people support the public option. She asserted that polls that show otherwise are wrong and the old media is actually biased against the liberals! I kid you not.

I'd just like to point out one little detail to liberals that are buying into their own propaganda: Say what you will about the polls, but if 2 out of 3 Americans really supported the public option, these proposals would not be stalled in an overwhelming Democrat Congress, and special procedural tricks wouldn't be necessary to get the bills onto the floor for a vote. They'd be passed lightning-fast to great fanfare.

The problem is that while some liberals are living in denial, many Democrats in Congress are not buying into their own propaganda and know there will be a very real price to pay for ignoring their constituents. Many will pay with their careers.

The Democrat health reform proposals aren't stalled because they enjoy widespread public support. They're stalled because they don't, and Democratic legislators are worrying about their jobs. If 2 out of 3 people support the public option those Democratic legislators would be worrying about not passing it.

Here ends the reality check.
