From the latest James Carville/Stanley Greenberg Democracy Corps memo:
“When all is said and done–after they have engaged on these battles and raised their agenda–Democrats want voters to conclude some very simple but powerful things. They may or may not articulate them, but Democrats should understand where they want people to end up.”
“About the Republicans
They work for the few.
For the corporate special interest.
Corruption and greed.
No rise in income and no relief from high prices in sight.
No end in sight in Iraq
America needs a new direction”
“About the Democrats
They’re for me.
Relief on gas and health costsand middle class taxes
New course in Iraq
A new Congress that works for everyone
New direction–a strong America that works for everyone.”
Far be it from me to question the Ragin’ Cajun’s political prowess, and there are certainly some more developed ideas in the memo (a two year ban on congressional pay raise, for example), others less so (“no more Terri Schiavo all-nighters” seems like it will have less resonance as time goes on), but doesn’t he get paid a bit much to end his analysis with a list of regurgitated vague warm fuzzy slogans Dems have been riding for the past six years?
