It's Not A Campaign It's A Temper Tantrum

It's Not a Campaign, It's a Temper Tantrum

Making Sense By Michael Reagan

If I had to find a definition for the Democrat campaign for the presidency it would be that it's a temper tantrum.

I just can't believe that America would want a party that thinks throwing fits of

anger is an appropriate form of campaigning for the highest office in the land. The

thought of a president -- the most powerful man in the world -- winning office by

campaigning on a platform of hatred is frightening.

My dad campaigned on the theme of making it Morning in America again. To listen

to the present Democrat candidates chant their diatribes you'd think that they

want it to be a nightmarish Midnight in America.

What's even more disturbing is that the Democrats' campaign rhetoric is centered

on the use of shocking obscenities -- it seems they can't get through a day

without using the F word and other filthy words.

Listen to these people. Listen to Howard Dean shouting down a questioner who just

simply wanted to ask if we couldn't just get rid of all the angry rhetoric and act

like neighbors. What does Dean say?He sneers, 'George Bush isn't my neighbor.'

If he knows where to find one he should look in the Bible for the parable of the

Good Samaritan to discover who his neighbors are.

Speaking on radio station WRKO in Boston Gov. Dean said that the President of

the United States may need some 'psychological' help, because he can't deal with

the fact that his father lost and he's trying to repay a debt to Saddam Hussein for

what he did to his dad.

Then there is this hatred driven - Democrat front, and their ads

comparing the president to Hitler.

In all my lifetime I have never heard so much cussing in a campaign from people

who represent or support candidates running for the presidency -- people who are

so angry and vulgar. It is embarrassing to watch these people who want their

candidates to be given the job of running this country wallow in filth.

Two nights ago, Matt Drudge reported that when the followers of

gathered to unveil the winner of the sleazy website's 'Bush in 30 Seconds' ad contest,

comedienne Margaret Cho used the F word again and again in attacking the president and the audience thought it was funny.

To debate the president about issues is one thing, but all of a sudden the Democrats

and their show business supporters start using the F word or the GD words or

whatever to show that they are hip. What bothers me is that when these comedians

use filthy language to attack the president, people laugh and applaud, not

understanding that it's absolutely demeaning to those who they want to win the


Never in my life, at any of the hundreds of Republican functions I have

attended have I ever heard anybody dare to use a cuss word.

The Democrats are seething with anger and have adopted the rhetoric of hatred

because they refuse to accept the fact that they lost in 2000, and no longer control the

House and Senate, and haven't a single legitimate issue to use against the president.

As Treasury Secretary John Snow told the U.S. Chamber of Commerce on

January 7, the economy is getting better day by day. Construction spending in

November was setting a record, the housing sector is boosting everything, industrial

production is growing by 9 percent, retail sales are up 9 percent, job creation for

November was rising for the fourth straight month, taxpayers with children

were receiving checks of $400 per eligible child in July and August, married

couples are benefiting from the reduction of the marriage penalty, and small

businesses are benefiting froma fourfold increase in the amount of new investment

they can deduct in one year.

There are so many plus signs, but the Democrats can't see them through their

anger. All they are left with are childish temper tantrums, dirty words and the

myth, thoroughly dispelled by the liberal media in several exhaustive investigations

that Al Gore really won Florida and the 2000 election.
