The Democrats (and their far left fevered swamps) cannot understand why they are not succeeding with the American public. Well there are a lot of reasons (see the post below) but one is hysterical paranoia is not “emotional appeal”:
Democrats are losing the battle for votersâ€™ hearts because the partyâ€™s message lacks emotional appeal, according to a widely circulated critique of House Democratic communications strategy.
â€œOur message sounds like an audit report on defense logistics,â€ wrote Dave Helfert, a former Appropriations spokesman who now works for Rep. Neil Abercrombie (D-Hawaii). â€œWhy are we defending [the State Childrenâ€™s Health Insurance Program] instead of advocating a â€˜Healthy Kidsâ€™ plan?â€
The problem the left has is they lost all their credibility by being hysterical chicken littles. They have predicted doom so often on so many fronts one wonders what keeps these people from doing a Jim Jones with real magiv Kool Aid. They were wrong about tax cuts (economy is doing great). They were wrong about Iraq and the Surge. They were wrong about every failed liberal policy they continue to trump, even when a sea of destroyed lives are in the history books to prove the policies are disasters.
They keep wanting more emotion and less thought. This is what happens when you are bankrupt on the ideas front. As you get more and more desperate you panic more, and then the only answer is more emotion! The left has not well thought policies. They have frustration, panic, anger and hate. Which is why they lose America.
