  •  The problem.... (0+ / 0-)

    ....is that the Democrats run people who have lots of good ideas on paper and no way of articulating them. Look at poor Michael Dukakis. He did a fine job as Governor of Massachusetts and he was up against Reagan's bumbling Vice President. But Dukakis had no vision. He was a competent technocrat with no real uniting philosophy. In addition to not being able to create a narrative, he stunningly never made any serious response to major attacks on his character, his manhood, and even on his family. Voters see that and say, "well, if he can't stand up to the Republicans, how can he stand up for us." Sort of like scared kids going to the schoolyard bully for protection when no one else will help them out.
