"The most important thing to the Democrats is the reacquisition of power. The worst things that can possibly happen to them are a revived economy and a successful Iraq liberation."
"They think they lost the election because they didn't get their message out. They don't understand that they did get their message out, and the fact that they did - and that the voters saw them for who they really are - is why they were so shellacked in November."
"These appeasers will do anything to stop the war, simply because they think it will be a political success."
Just when you thought it was safe to go into a cloak room.
Well Rush makes it clear that the only way Democrats can win is to abandon all the things the believe (that they don't really believe in anyway, but just pretend to believe to get votes) and become good Republicans. In that way they could win elections, but they are too stupid to do it, and so stick to that evil Liberalism. Voters saw who the Liberals were and so the Republicans won a couple of tight races.
It's nice to let the Republicans set the terms of debate because that way the Democrats can't win. Because they are assumed to have the basest most selfish motives for everything they do, well, they are damned if they stick to their principles and they are damned if they give up those principles.
I personally would stick to my principles anyway--but that's not been recent Democratic party history.
