“The Democrats’ strategy may deepen national divisions, and lead to bad policy, but it is, so far, the winning approach.”
One should read that a few times, let it sink in. I believe it is as true as it is astonishing but until you see why it’s true, it may be hard to believe. But do believe it, for it is true. For now, at least.
Obama wins because the Democrats are stronger for what they are doing, and the Republicans are weaker because of what they are doing. This article at Breitbart Big Government is well worth reading for many reasons, not the least of which it is more evidence that the establishment Republicans have indeed created a “stupid party.” On their efforts to purge conservatives from the Republican party, consider this from the same article:
Regardless, the pattern remains the same: the new, netroots-and-community-organizer Democratic leadership dispenses with party’s moderates, while the old Republican establishment tries to marginalize the grass roots conservatives who are largely responsible for the limited electoral successes the party has enjoyed in recent years.
No enterprise that fires its most productive workers can last.
The Democrat party is enjoying unity, the Republican party is in disarray, thanks to the establishment RINOs. Democrat moderates lose elections for Democrats because the Democrat base is not moderate. Conservatives win elections for Republicans because conservatism rightly understood and explained has wide appeal. Except with establishment Republican leaders. John McCain, Lindsey Graham, and Mitch McConnell in the Senate, John Boehner and Eric Cantor in the House, are examples.
