FT195: “Democrats ridicule Sarah Palin because we elected a far less qualified Sarah Palin—Barack Obama—twice.” —Old Pithy

Fundamental Truth

Democrats don’t want to face Conservatives in General Elections because when they do they Lose

Democrats want to win elections.  They spend enormous amounts of money to make that happen in tight races.  Which limits the amount of money they can spend elsewhere.  So they don’t want to spend any more money than they absolutely have to.  Which tells us one thing.  Whoever they say should be the Republican candidate and is the one that will take the Republican Party in the right direction is actually the candidate they want.  Because he or she is the candidate they think they can defeat easiest.

The Democrats loved John McCain.  They loved how he reached across the aisle.  How he could work with Democrats.  Always willing to compromise to give them what they wanted.  Without demanding hardly anything in return.  In fact, he valued his ability to compromise with Democrats more than any conservative principle.  Democrats like that.  And told Republicans that McCain was their candidate.  Nay, should be their candidate.  For this is the direction the people want the Republican Party to move in.  The Democrat direction.

So with John McCain in the general election the voters had a Democrat candidate (Barack Obama) and a Democrat-lite Candidate (John McCain).  Which is what the Democrats want.  Because it helps Democrats.  They don’t want a conservative that can get Democrats to cross over and vote Republican.  Like the Reagan Democrats.  While at the same time invigorating the conservative base.  That’s the last thing they want.  For when they have that in a general election (like with Ronald Reagan) they lose in landslides.

Whenever Republicans nominate a Candidate the left approves of they NEVER win General Elections

When the Republican candidate is a Democrat-lite candidate it will discourage the conservative base.  Which is what the Democrats want.  Fewer Republicans voted in 2012 than they did in 2008.  This decline in Republican turnout helped win the election for Obama.  So that’s what a Democrat-lite candidate does for Republicans.  And when it comes to Democrat voters they will never vote for Democrat-lite when they a full-blown Democrat to vote for.

This is why the Democrats praised John McCain during the 2008 Republican primary.  And why they praised Mitt Romney during the 2012 Republican primary.  Both moderate Republicans.  More importantly, neither was a conservative.  One (Mitt Romney) even gave Massachusetts universal health care.  Making it difficult for him to attack Obamacare without sounding like a hypocrite.  So the left loved both of these moderate non-conservatives.  Right up until the general election.  When they tore each of them a new you-know-what.

Watching Republicans campaign is like watching Gilligan’s Island.  Where each week we tuned in to see if this was the week they would finally get rescued from that deserted island.  And just when rescue seemed imminent Gilligan would do something to ruin everything.  While viewers never noticed the recurring theme.  They NEVER get rescued.  Just as it is with elections.  Every election the Republicans listen to the Democrats.  As if they are really interested in helping Republicans win elections.  Instead of doing everything within their power to win themselves.  And whenever Republicans nominate a candidate the left approves of they NEVER win general elections.

Being Likeable was Enough to get one of the most Unqualified Candidates elected President of the United States

The Democrats got John McCain for the Republican candidate.  Which they went on to defeat in the general election.  Just as they had planned.  But they got something else they hadn’t planned on.  Sarah Palin.  No one saw that coming.  No one even knew who she was when McCain announced her as his running mate.  But she was someone.  She served on the Wasilla City Council in 1992.  Became mayor of Wasilla in 1996.  She was chair of the Alaska Oil and Gas Conversation Commission.  And governor of Alaska in 2006.  Then, of course, Republican vice presidential candidate in 2008. 

She was dangerous.  A young and accomplished woman.  With real governing experience.  And a folksy charm.  She was likeable.  And she was conservative.  This to the left was a greater threat than al Qaeda.  They had to destroy this woman.  Lest she become more influential in Republican politics.  So they ridiculed her night and day.  From politicians to policy wonks to the mainstream media to late night television.  It was open season on Sara Palin.  And they had good reason to fear her.  For when the 2010 midterm elections came around she was part of a new political movement.  The Tea Party.  The movement was so strong that the Republicans took the House of Representatives back in 2010.  And the left did not want that to happen again.  So they attacked her.  And the Tea Party.

The Tea Party and Sarah Palin are the worst enemies the left can have.  Conservatives.  A recent Gallup Poll showed that only 21% of the electorate call themselves liberal while 40% call themselves conservative.  And 35% call themselves moderate.  Which means the majority of the electorate agree with the Tea Party.  And Sarah Palin.  Which is why Sarah Palin is so dangerous.  She has governing experience.  The majority of the electorate agrees with her.  And she’s likeable.  They just don’t want anyone like that on the ticket if they can help it.  Especially if they’re likeable.  So the Democrats ridicule Sarah Palin.  Because they saw how easy it is to get a far less qualified ‘Sarah Palin’ elected.  Barack Obama.  Who had no governing experience.  And shared an ideology with only 21% of the electorate.  But he was likeable.   And being likeable was enough to get one of the most unqualified candidates elected president of the United States.  Twice.
