The study found that three out of four evaluations of Democratic candidates' chances of winning — such as sound bites — were positive, compared with one out of eight for Republicans. Coverage has been dominated by two major themes: the effects of the Foley scandal, and the impact the Bush presidency is having on the party's congressional candidates.
The Foley scandal produced 59 stories alone, compared with 33 on Iraq and 31 on terrorism/national security issues. “What's hurting Republican candidates is the media's focus on two non-candidates: Mark Foley and George W. Bush,” says center director Robert Lichter.
Yep. That's because the Dimocrats don't have a plan. They don't have a platform, and they don't have any strategies that they want to admit to the American public. Because "Raise taxes, surrender to terrorists and kowtow to the UN" just doesn't resonate with most people, ya know?
So they avoid talking about what they're going to do, and instead attack two people that the Republicans aren't even running for office.
Just look at how many times the Dimocrats bring up President Bush instead of talking about the issues facing the country today. They don't have a plan, and as usual they don't have a clue. The only thing giving them any hope at all is how badly the Republicans have screwed up.
That's a pretty crappy thing to deal with. If I had my druthers, I'd kick out every lousy rat-bastard in Washington right now, and start over. But since I can't have my druthers, I'd be happy to not see Rancid Charlie Rangle, Dirty Harry Reid, Nancy "The Facelift" Pelosi, and the rest of the corrupt, scum-sucking communists of the Dimocrat party holding the majority after next week.
The Republicans might be bad. The Commucrats are worse.
