Daily Kos: Republican Reality Gap: Feelings, Nothing More Than Feelings...

Republican Reality Gap: Feelings, Nothing More Than Feelings...

There is one point that really needs to be hammered hard, right now, by all Democrats. I didn't invent this point, but I can see it very clearly, and I hope you can too. It is drawn from the strong discourse the Democrats are offering this very minute. But I see the need for making a sharp contrast... They are talking about fantasies and feelings. We have a grasp of reality and a plan.

The Republicans can only continue to fight in the realm of propaganda. And that is why they are talking about nothing but feelings. All they offer in the way of data is anecdotal. They speak of soldiers or Iraqis who told them this or that. Remarkably, it was always a Republican talking point that was imparted to them. Even in the cases where these anecdotes are true rather than colorful illustrations... They are still Republican talking points. And they still speak only to feelings, impressions, hopes.
