We’ve been hearing a lot of media blather about “Bush in a bubble” over the past few weeks. Supposedly, the president is isolated, unhearing and uncaring about views different from his own. That’s proven wrong daily, but the libs are stuck on it. Today, on the RealClearPolitics site, John McIntyre identifies the Other Bubble: the one the Dems are in. Here’s the money quote:
“As long as national security related issues are front page news, the Democrats are operating at a structural political disadvantage. Perhaps the intensity of their left wing base and the overwhelmingly liberal press corps produces a disorientation among Democratic politicians and prevents a more realistic analysis of where the country’s true pulse lies on these issues.”
Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful. The Dems only read the NYT, WaPo, and watch CBS. They never want to listen to real people, and thus can’t get in tune with what’s really on America’s mind. McIntyre’s take is 110% correct.
More importantly, this is the key to 2006 folks: we need to remind people long, hard and continuously that the Dems are still the party of the ACLU and Howard Dean, of Michael Moore and Cindy Sheehan.
