The Democrats are having a nervous breakdown.

The Democrats really need to stay on their meds. It’s getting embarrassing. After the President delivers an uplifting State of the Union address, the Democratic response was a blathering disaster. What a tragic decline in this once proud party: From FDR’s New Deal to Harry Reid’s No Deal; From JFK’s New Frontier to Nancy Pelosi’s No Frontier; From pro-choice on abortion to No choice on Social Security.

Is there any wonder that the Democrats are being increasingly rejected by the American people? Here’s a thought experiment for you. Name something that would be good for America and Americans that is also good for the Democratic Party. Free elections in Iraq? No! Personal retirement accounts? Nope! Tort reform? No way! Lower taxes? Are you kidding? School accountability? Shut up, you fascist! Democrats today are a reactionary party with no agenda worth a damn.

The Democratic Party used to be a muscular, idealistic party of the people. Democrats believed passionately in principles worth fighting for. They believed that freedom, a God given right, was a good reason to fight the Germans in World War I (Wilson’s war), the Nazis in WWII (Roosevelt’s war), the Communists in Korea (Truman’s war) and the Communists again in Vietnam (Kennedy’s and Johnson’s war). Democrats then had ideals and were the party of reform. Today, according to Fred Barnes of The Weekly Standard, Bush and the Republicans have "totally seized the mantle of idealism" from the Democrats.

President Bush has foreign policies and domestic policies that are ambitious and liberal and grand. His policies strive to achieve freedom around the world and an ownership society at home. These policies spawn programs such as the overthrow of the Taliban in Afghanistan and the end of the Hussein reign of terror in Iraq. At home the ownership society programs aim to make home ownership, advanced education and secure retirement a reality for people in all economic strata.
Every one of these domestic reform agendas is needed and long overdue. The Democratic answer to each and every one: No! Non!! Nyet!!!
It’s truly inspiring.

Bush believes that freedom breeds peace and ownership spurs ambition, leading to a new "Great Society" in America, this time fostered by the Republican Party.

Nervous breakdown? I think it's more like a MELTDOWN, Bill. LOL. Unfortunately, the Dems/liberals are looking pretty silly these days with their ridiculous comments and laughable lies and half-truths. There's a part of me that feels sorry for them, actually. Especially those I come in contact with who are clueless to the fact that they are not making sense at all. Interesting how things are panning out after the Iraqi elections, President Bush's stirring State of the Union speech, etc. This is a great ride so far in 2005.
