The politics of straw dogs and liberal branding

 Biden Claims a GOP 'Blitzkrieg' (Updated) »

If there is one thing that you can count on from liberals, the minute they run out of defense or argument for their weak and shallow positions on anything, they immediately descend into their entrenched defense of long standing. "Brand the other guys Nazis!"

I am sorry, but this dog eared argument is so stale and repetitive, that they have even come up with a contemporary term for it. It's called Godwin's law. As any discussion of politics grows longer, the probability of a liberal comparison involving Nazis or Hitler becomes an absolute certainty as their last line of defense.  

Enter one VP Joe Biden into the fall fund raising fray..........
Vice President Biden is out with an alarmed e-mail cash appeal warning that the GOP will mount a “blitzkrieg” against Democrats in the fall.

Comparing GOP tactics to the fast-striking forces of Nazi Germany, Biden warns in a message sent by the DCCC today: “As things heat up, you can expect House Democrats will be hit with a GOP blitzkrieg of vicious Swift-Boat-style attack ads, Karl Rove-inspired knockout tactics, thinly veiled attempts at character assassination and tea party disruptions.”

Something that hasn't been done yet, is the establishment of another law. Very similar, but different. Call it "swift boat branding" or "Kerry's dilemma. But the principle is the same, just a different angle. Anytime a democrat feels threatened by a conservative or a republican use truth and historical facts and record to oppose a liberal democrat in an election? And immediately the liberal cries fowl and claims that they have been "swift boated."

And the other tools in the kit of the average out of facts and ill prepared liberal? Rove, Cheney and Palin. Those three represent the 'axis of evil' to all committed liberal 'progressives.' When all else fails hang a dark cloud of Rove or Cheney or Palin over your argument and represent them as sinister forces and champions of the rich and big corporations. 

Of late, the most recent liberal boogie man and the one they are becoming more and more vile about in their attacks daily, is the Tea party. Their favored tactic of attack on the Tea Party seems to have been to attempt to associate them with either Nazis or militia groups. 

Just the same, the tactics always remain the same. Attack, demonize, brand. Then retreat and smirk like the petulant children that they really are.

“Our Democratic allies in the House need your help, and the President and I hope we can count on you to come to their defense so we can hold onto our Democratic Majority and continue moving American forward in a new direction,” Biden writes in the appeal.

I'll bet he does hope that they can continue to move forward. Of course Biden and the rest of the democrats will be a little thin on the details of benefits that their journey is taking this country. and he won't tell you that he and the rest will suddenly take left turns and veer away right before the collapse and calamity that they are steering this country to.

The news from the congressional budget office yesterday demonstrated the real truth of what is going on in this administration.  It now takes 60% of our GDP to pay our rising debt and America presently is in deeper than we were during WWII. Meanwhile Obama continues to spend the money that this nation doesn't have like a house afire, wile continually finding new ways to spend more and create more debt.

And yet we have the literal village idiot (Joe Biden) out there stumping and looking like the smiling bafoon that he is and there will be millions of Americans who will buy their tripe.

Yep, go right ahead Joe.  What is it that great gaffer from Washington always says? Oh...I got it now......"God love him."
