Dem’s SECRET Plan To Win In November

I will hand it to the Democrats. They are very good at coming up with playbook pieces that seem to work. You can go back to the 1992 presidential election and understand what I’m talking about. Do you remember James Carville’s famous quote, “It’s the economy, stupid”? Democrats won that election because they hammered home what they felt was important. It was the economy. Actually, not so much with Bush 43, but it worked. Later, Clinton was able to add to that playbook item. If you tell a lie enough times, people start to believe it. That’s what got him reelected.

Well, this year, the Democrats have a play that is well underway. We’re seeing it every single day.

Joe Biden has been on the campaign trail for the last month not necessarily campaigning for Democrats because there are tons of Dems’ that don’t want to be seen with him. But he’s been out there, typically in Pennsylvania and Wisconsin, where he hopes he can flip two US Senate seats. And he hasn’t necessarily been campaigning with the Senate candidates. He’s been bashing Republicans. Oh, he says it’s just the MAGA Republicans, which have been called “half-fascists”, and a “threat to our democracy”. And while the right screams that he’s breaking a campaign promise of “unifying the country”, which he never really wanted to do, he IS accomplishing the task at hand.

He is controlling the message.

Think about it. Every day that goes by that the media are talking about how he’s using non-campaign events to bash Republicans, what isn’t being done? We aren’t hearing about the economy, the inflation rate, the southern border crisis, the high crime rate, the botched withdrawal in Afghanistan, the possibility of an Iranian Nuclear Deal, and Ukraine’s war with Russia and the hundreds of billions we are spending on that. We aren’t hearing about the supply chain issues that still plague the country either.

And people like Raphael Warnock in Georgia, Mark Kelly here in Arizona, and Catherine Cortez Masto in Nevada are able to scream about abortion, and say that Republicans want to take away Social Security and Medicare (they don’t…they want to privatize them). People are starting to believe the lies.

Yes, the races are tightening in the Senate contests. Kelly is only about 4 points ahead of Blake Masters. Herschel Walker has bumped ahead of Warnock in Georgia in a couple of polls, and in Colorado, Joe O’Dea has pulled to within five points of Michael Bennett! Still, you’re hearing how confident the Dems are becoming. And it’s because they know if they keep talking about Donald Trump, MAGA Republicans, and Mar-a-Lago, that Republicans aren’t able to talk about the real issues that matter most to people.

In order to win this election, the GOP needs to control the message. They need to get back on top. Trump isn’t helping because frankly, this election isn’t about Trump. This election is about stopping Biden. We have two years to worry about Trump. He needs to go away for a while and stop complaining about the FBI and how poorly he’s been treated.

Carry on world…you’re dismissed!

  1. I think the Dem’s and media are gaslighting and the public knows it because they see all the crime on their nightly news and feel the pinch of higher prices every day.

    I’m hoping the Dem’s have finally pushed it to far and are committing their own suicide? We can only hope!

  2. I do not want to use this opportunity to deride you but I think I have a legitimate concern here and would love your opinion about it. Is it true or is it not true that in every election for President, both sides of the aisle push the argument that their opponents never address the real issues but are concentrated on demeaning and belittle one another more than anything else? Is this just me or is there something justifying my concern?

    1. As to “All the crime” and “Feeling the pinch of higher prices every day” — Am I getting senile or what? I have lived for many years now .. probably more years than anyone on these websites … and as long as I can remember we have always heard about the crime on the streets and prices that never seem to go anywhere but up. I am not convinced that these two concerns are limited to the era of Trump and Biden. I think these concerns have been generic to our government for decades now and that the only things that change are the players.

      1. I think crime has always been with people going back thousands of years. Inflation really took off after Nixon got off the gold standard. Our money wasn’t backed by anything any more, so inflation was allowed to go crazy. Remember the price freezes Nixon put into play? Didn’t work so well! Ford couldn’t do any better and neither could Carter. Inflation was indeed better during Trump, but so was the economy. I’m not quite sure how much can be blamed on COVID, and how much can be blamed on over-spending. Both play a major role.

    2. I think you’re right basically. It’s happened more lately than in the past (well, not the LONG past…there was always derision between the parties!). And yes, your concern is certainly justified. In part, I’d say that it’s what has got us to where we are with Congress investigating all sorts of things (both sides, here), and not doing what needs to get done to advance our country. We’re spending so much time lately on stuff like January 6th, which did indeed get out of hand, and defunding police, and Russian collusion (and the GOP has been guilty of this as well!!!) that we haven’t tackled the problem of inflation (though that’s really a spending issue and the FED’s problem), and high gas prices, and climate change stuff, and immigration reform. People are more concerned about those things than the hearings. It’s been that way for decades. Yes, John…you’re on to something!

      1. Another thing … I have noticed that when candidates run their ads for elections or for re-elections, they are always so “Look at me, I am one of you and I understand your problems and I will do something about them” but once they get elected, they go back to living the Washington high life and more or less forget all about their promises to the people who elected them. And I am saying that this disease is suffered by politicians from all sides of the political spectrum. They ask for the job of representing us and then when they get elected they feel like we have given them permission to dictate to us and for us rather than listening to our concerns and trying to do something about them. I think a lot of our politicians feel more like they are royalty than elected representatives.

      2. Exactly! That’s one of my pet peeves. Our Congresswoman is a good friend of mine and has been since before she was elected. But I’ve detected a bit of that in her recently. She was never like that when she was at the State House or Senate! And I’m seeing that a LOT in our Senate race here. Mark Kelly is taking credit for a lot of things he just didn’t have much if anything to do with. Geesh!

      3. I believe that America has become too big, too diverse and too divided to be effectively governed by the traditional two party system anymore. I believe the office of the president should be filled with an elected tribunal consisting of three different people, all of whom must agree on an issue before any action is taken, and we need to pass a law requiring that the Supreme Court always be equal and totally balanced (5 democrats and 5 republicans) and we need a law that dictates that wherever there is an election being conducted .. I am talking about the polls here, there should be an equal number of poll workers from each side of the aisle. There are other considerations but those are the first ones that come to my mind.

      4. Hey, fairness is certainly one thing. But I think what you’ve got here is a recipe for gridlock that would insure that nothing would ever get done. Of course, I’m not saying that’s a bad thing! Sometimes I think before Congress passes a law, they should remove one from the books!

      5. My suggestion may be a gridlock to insure that nothing ever gets done but what have we got no besides continuing gridlock where nothing ever gets really done and if something does get done with the present system, you can be assured that the next administration will come along and undo whatever it was that got done by the previous administration. What is the difference between what we have now and what I have suggested to take it’s place? We need to move to a Parliamentary form of government asap.

      6. Not so sure a Parliament would help. Have you ever watched BBC’s broadcasts of the House of Commons? I think what needs to happen is to either blow up the current system (I’ve detailed how to fix Washington in an earlier blog…I think it’s still there). And we can do so and save a ton of money as well. Term limits, no perks like retirement, and doing all the business from home district offices over secure internet lines would be a good start. And we take the money out of politics by getting rid of PAC’s, and lobbyists. It’s a start.

      1. Um, I think we’ve reached the point where I’d be happy to disagree with that. No southern border solution…40 year high inflation…an economy in recession…crime on the rise in Democrat controlled cities…spending money on climate change when people need the help (and as noted ecologist, Michael Shellenberger has written, the whole climate change thing was a power grab from the left), I’m not so sure you can say the DNC is any better than the RNC. Sorry. That buzzard didn’t fly.

      3. Members of congress lose their original inclinations once they get a taste of the fancy dinners, the luxury hotel suites, the business class air travel, the limosines, the feelings of “Privilege,” hobnobbing with the rich and famous, living the glitzy high life of Washington D.C.

        All this glamour eventually leads them all to crave their new lifestyle and they become obsessed with finding ways to expand their power and influence and most importantly to protect and preserve their jobs as congress people. They soon forget about the needs, the dreams, wishes, desires and sufferings of the constituents who put them into their cushy surroundings. They start thinking of voters as peasants or “The Lower Class” forgetting that that is where they themselves came from in the first place …unless, like some of them, they were born with silver spoons permanently attached to unmentionable places on their persons.

        They also, quickly enough, develop the idea that “To Represent The People” actually means to act important enough and superior enough to dictate their own ideas of what is best for the people …after they determine what is best for themselves and their careers — the People become a secondary concern to them and they get arrogant and decide it is alright to look down on those who voted them into office in the first place.

        These attitudes lead to the congress people to start ignoring the issues that “The People” are concerned about and dictating computer generated form letters so that machines can answer letters to them … letters written by the voters to their congress people …

        The “Machines” answer voter letters with letters of their own that usually start out something like this:

        I am so glad that you reached out to me with your concerns and I also want to thank you for your continued support as I move ahead to get important items into law that improve the quality of life for everybody….”

        But the letter the machine writes never gets around to actually discussing the issue the voter wrote about in the first place. These letters are even signed with a machine-produced signature that looks just like the concerned congress person read the letter and signed it personally himself or herself — but in all reality, the letter the voter wrote to the congress person in the first place is read and answered by a staff member because the actual congress person is far too busy to bother with a letter from a simple little voter.

        And, oh by the way, if you read your response to my comment above about Republicans being in charge of crime ridden cities the same as democrats are in charge of crime ridden cities, you do what right leaning people always do .. you avoided agreeing that there are some Republican leaders in some Republican run crime ridden cities who have no more control over crime in their cities as democrats do in theirs …you did a good job of shifting the focus off the fact that I presented and ended up blaming democrats for starting the record crime in cities they control and telling me that democrats started it all and it simply spread to all the other cities, thus appearing to make the Republican leaders in the high crime Republican cities look like victims rather than like the impotent leaders they really are. Surely the Republican leaders in the high crime Republican areas have enough intelligence and leadership capabilities that they could bring their crime under control … but no … better to say, “I have this problem because I inherited it from something the democrats did.”

      4. Wow! You’re sounding more conservative every time you write! And I didn’t mean to give the impression that there were NO Republican controlled cities with crime problems. What I meant to say (and obviously failed in my communications of it), was that it was the Democrat controlled cities that actually started the increase in crime. No, there are CERTAINLY Republican led cities with bad crime problems! Sorry if I didn’t make that clear! But be careful John, I’m half-expecting you to be standing next to me some day voting in a Republican primary!

      6. Here is another buzzard that won’t fly either …Republicans love to talk about crime rising in democrat-controlled cities but they never seem to want to mention the fact that crime is also on the rise in Republican controlled cities too. While the murder rate has gone up in Chicago and Detroit and Philadelphia, all run by Democrats, the murder rate has likewise gone up in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, Oklahoma; in Fort Worth, Texas; in Fresno, California; and in Miami, Florida. Every one of those cities is run by a Republican mayor and overseen by a Republican governor.

      7. Ah, but you’re missing the point here. Yes, it’s true crime is up all over the country…but ask yourself the question, where did the crime increase start? It started in places like Seattle, Portland, Minneapolis, Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. Those are all cities run by Democrats. Like a wildfire, crime spreads all over, and that is exactly what happened here. The thing to take away from this isn’t where crime is today. It’s how Democrat-run cities responded to it originally…the defunded the police departments. Go ahead and check your sources and tell me how many Republican controlled city councils in this country voted to defund the police. My bet is zero.

Yeah, I can see why they’d turn their nose up to that! See, you gotta look at the WHOLE bill, John. That was a very small part of it. You’re playing the same semantics game the rest of your party plays. And you can drop the “eat it”. I’m asking polite questions here. You don’t need to develop an attitude!

      12. Sorry about the attitude … I am a recovering shock jock so bear with me. As to reading “Whole” bills, I hate reading “Whole” bills because of all the “Pork” that both parties are guilty of adding to Bills. We should have a law forbidding the adding of “Pork” to bills being submitted.

      13. I would agree. Limit bills to one page, single spaced, 12 point type. If you can’t get it on that, there’s no sense in doing it. The types of bills we’re talking about here that run 1200 pages or more are ridiculous and they always cause more problems than they solve. And yes…both parties are certainly guilty of it. Democrats don’t have the lock on these omnibus bills…that’s for damn sure!
