What A Strange Talking Point

Posted by Mike on June 5, 2007

James Carville and Paul Begala have been using a strange talking point in recent days.  Carville framed it in terms of a civics lesson.  What he wanted young people to do was watch the Democrat debate and count the number of times George W. Bush is mentioned.  Then he wanted them to watch the Republican debate and do the same.  This is supposedly proof that the Democrats will win.   Nice theory but he missed a step.

I think those same young people need to count like Carville said but then they need to look at their ballots when they vote and count the number of times George W. Bush is mentioned on the ballot.  The answer is zero.  Bush isn’t running.  His Vice President isn’t running.  No one in his administration is running.  Go ahead Democrats.  Run against George Bush.  Our nominee will run against you.  I think the Democrats are in for a surprise.

    If the Republicans listen to Newt and run like Sarkozy did, then I think we can easily produce a victory next year. If the Republicans allow themselves to be dragged into defending Bush all the time, then we have a bigger problem.
