"It is a Republican country, but it is very hard for the left to see this because they believe so deeply in their agenda."
I'm having real trouble identifying a discernable 'Democrat agenda'--they're so wishy-washy, they're completely unable to isolate and market a cohesive and comprehensible plan to the electorate other than promising all things to all people--this approach never works, something Bill Clinton understood. On the other hand, it's been said many times during this election cycle about Bush, 'like him or hate him, at least you know what he stands for'.
Veiled nuance and tip-toeing diplomacy go out the window when it's your turn to shove your chips in the pot. You simply can't say 'I've a pair of aces but--and depending upon the status of the next three cards I'm dealt--I shall or shall not, wager (some amount of money)--on the potential outcome--you understand my dilema--depending on the outcome of future events not under my control--I'll participate in some manner or form--please, move on to the next player and get back to me after I have eliminated more of the unknown veriables'.
Kerry and the Democrats, with the help of MSM have sidestepped the risk of specifying their 'agenda' (assuming they have one) and are therefore, unable to shove their chips into the pot. MSM can keep screaming at the top of their lungs that the Democrats have a winning hand, but until they are willing to bet the farm on it, no one will take them seriously.
I've watched this election as close as anyone possibly can and for the life of me, beyond the "anybody but Bush/Bush is Hitler" meme, I still cannot figure out what Soros & Co. are proposing in the way of a 'Democrat agenda' with maybe one possible exception.
Hillary was chrystal-clear about the Democratic agenda when she stated unequivocally, 'they' would take more money from you for the 'common good'. You got to give 'the smartest woman in America' credit--this is the only clear and honest agenda that I can discern from the Democrats and no liberal I know of has stated it with such succinct and breathtaking clarity.
