Persuit of Happiness

The democrats in the press and all the liberal pundits from the DNC have been struggling to figure out why they lost so badly. Their theories usually involve bigoted homophobic rednecks. And they continue to get stuck on the moral values issue. As long as they remain clueless they will continue to lose elections. Pete Du Pont hits closest to the real reason the Republicans won
: "Rather than applauding Hillary Clinton's telling them last summer that their taxes must be raised because 'we're going to take things away from you on behalf of the common good,' they prefer Newt Gingrich's observation that the Declaration of Independence's Pursuit of Happiness includes an active verb: 'Not happiness stamps; not a department of happiness; not therapy for happiness. Pursuit.'

If the Democratic Party allows itself to be defined by Ted Kennedy, Michael Moore and the editorial page of the New York Times, while Republicans, their president and their strengthened congressional majorities encourage the pursuit of happiness in an opportunity and ownership society, then Mr. and Mrs. America will make sure conservatives are in power for a great many years to come."
The democrats and liberals do not understand this concept. And they will continue to look to democrats to figure out why they lost.

Like an article in the latest Rolling Stone Magazine. It's called Why Bush Won, and they interview....three democrats. It really is a lot of fun to read and witness their consternation at the election results. If they keep this up they had better get used to being political losers.
