I detect Ken-bot shrinkage
“Democrats … vocally fought – and then voted against – Justices Roberts and Alito. Why? Because they depend on activist judges to hand them the victories they can’t win at the ballot box.”
The RNC robot is churning out his tired talking points with his back against the wall. If he thinks the Dems are impotent at the ballot box, well, we’ll see, Little Miss Sunshine. (Raw Story):
Mehlman repeats Republican themes heard often in the closing days of the mid-term election season, touching on the “war on terror” and tax cuts, along with typical cutdowns of the Democratic Party, seen as having the upper hand in the most recent polls.
“Americans will have the opportunity to choose between a party that wants to use every tool to keep us safe, or one that would take those tools away; between a party that wants to let you keep more of your own hard-earned money, or one that believes that money belongs to Washington; between a party that understands judicial restraint, or one that wants activist judges to fight its battles,” Mehlman says in the op-ed.
And this paragraph alone must have been taken out of the deep freeze, it’s so laughable.
Voters face another choice Tuesday: Republicans have cut taxes every year since George W. Bush was elected president. Democrats, on the other hand, have said outright that they plan to raise your taxes. If you’re a typical American family with two kids earning $30,000 a year, the Democrats would raise your taxes by more than $2,000. They’d raise your gas taxes just as gas prices are finally coming down. Where would it end? Well, the man who would be in charge of tax policy in a Democrat-controlled House came right out and said it: No tax increase will be out of bounds.
