Democrats Know They Can't Win In '04
May 22, 2003
My friends, during a discussion of some Dick Gephardt sound bites on Thursday, I made an admittedly bold statement, even for me. The dirty little secret is this: The Democrats know that George W. Bush is unbeatable in 2004. There is no way George W. Bush is going to lose.
As you know, Little Dick Gephardt is one of the nine Democrats seeking the Democrat nomination, and he has a tax and health care plan, which many are calling a tax increase. His plan is to repeal the Bush tax cut, and give that money to carparations, and then the carparations, with this new-found money would then be required to fully fund health care for their employees and other things. Well, Little Dick was on the Newshour with Jim Lehrer on PBS Wednesday evening defending the plan and saying all sorts of outrageous things.
You can hear a few sound bites in the audio links below, where you will hear Little Dick call his plan, "a different kind of tax cut" and introduce a new liberal term, "wage benefits." Excuse me, what is a wage benefit? I thought people earned raises. I thought people earned increases in pay. Dick Gephardt says his plan is going to raise "wage benefits." Even your salary is a gift from the government now, folks! He also says that Americans will choose his national healthcare over a $300-$600 tax cut.

Dick, may I tell you what the American people are going to choose? Most people will choose the security of the country and their families over a Democrat health care plan any day. It's not about health care, Dick - and this is the nub of it right here. Much as you Democrats want to try to frame the debate and make this upcoming election about that, it isn't going to be about that, it's going to be about national security, the war on terrorism.
Here's the bold part, folks. The Democrats know they have already lost the 2004 election. Privately, every member of the Democrat Washington intelligentsia knows it. Now, some of these candidates think they have a shot, and some rank-and-file Democrats out there think they can win, but among Democrat pros, the election is over. There is not going to be a Democrat victory in 2004, and they know it. They're headed for Mondullsville.
The other factor in this is the Clintons. Who runs the Democratic National Committee? Terry McAuliffe, Clintonista. Who's laid out in grand scenario to win the White House for herself in 2008? Hillary Clinton. What is the one thing that stands in the way of that? A Democrat winning in 2004. Even if one of these clowns among the nine Democratic candidates look like they're going to win, something will happen behind the scenes to sabotage anybody who gets close.
So all this stuff you hear from candidates like Gephardt is a bunch of malarkey, hodgepodge, just flapping of the gums for the sake of it. None of it will ever come to pass. Look, folks, anything can change, but let me put it this way: Within the deep, dark bowels of the Democrat cloakrooms, those who read polls and keep track of things know full well they are not going to win the White House in 2004. It's just that simple. You'll never hear them say it publicly. You heard it here first.
No doubt about it - *they're running the show...
That is the year our Republic will either sink or swim. If Hillary wins, it's curtains for America as we know it, forever!
What Little Dick calls big business in the 'Show Me' state...
Let me splain it to you, Rush. A wage benefit is the sneaky way the libs intend to get national health care, using the corporations as proxies, and tax the workers for it. Company-provided health care will be considered a salary extension, a taxable benefit as part of the wages. In other words, another sneaky Democrat tax increase.
If she was to win the election, there will be too many upset people for her to survive. Now, granted, I don't feel Hillary will ever win a presidential election. She's too much of a polarizing figure and there will be such a national outcry against her that she will finally slither back under the rock she out from.
If it is a wage, it is taxable. They are back to trying to tax benefits.
But if he brings enough delegates to the table in the convention, he increases his influence next time. Even next time, he won't be president, it's a question of influence.
Don't anyone here misunderestimate Sharpton's intellegence, despite his hairstyle.
In his field, he is an Einstein. No sarcasm.
