Everyone knows what a Democrat looks like, talks like, and quacks like. Most people know we are liberals. They know that most are pro-equal pay for equal work, pro-environment, pro-government oversight, pro-choice, anti-war, pro-immigration, pro-individual rights, pro-civil rights, pro-women's rights, pro-gay rights, pro-separation of church and state, pro-labor, pro-education, etc. And yes, most are even pro-Affordable Healthcare Act, also know as, Obamacare.
So, why are they running from who and what they are? President Obama's policies are the policies of Democrats. I would have more respect if our candidates just owned it.
Are these Democrats buying into the ignorance that says separate from who you are to get my vote...deceive me if you have to? Do what the GOP is and has been doing since the day President Bush trotted out of office...lie about their part in what got us in the mess President Obama led the charge to clean up, and deceive the American people. So, now they you want to deny all the things that Democrats have accomplished and separate for President Obama. I personally am saddened by this strategy.
I think you gain some votes but you also lose some with this strategy. President Obama is being very gracious about this strategy...but remember Bo. President Obama knows, too. The Democratic platform looks absolutely nothing like the Republican platform...and if you are not in the one percent then you would be foolish to vote Republican in the midterm election.
