  • The Left's (Very) Simple Message

       January 30, 2005

    James was nice enough to send me some of the flyers and the like that he picked while observing DC's Inauguration Day protestors. One of the pieces in my package was this President Bush brown paper sandwich bag:

    That's all there is to it. No slogans. No Bushitler references. Nothing. James and I were talking about this and we both agreed that the bag was pretty cool, and that it could just as easily be pro-Bush. Heck, I might use to take my lunch to work tomorrow.

    So really, what a lame protest piece. Are these looney lefties so insulated that they believe all they have to do is show people an image of the President and they'll immediately "see the light" and start chanting "No blood for oil!"?

    It's just a simple bag, but it's also emblematic of the left's simple message. One of the great failings in the Left today is the way they project their own "anyone but Bush" stance onto the Right. I don't think they grasp the fact that Americans voted for Bush but can still not agree with everything he does. What a missed opportunity. Instead of supporting and/or proposing their own vision of America, too many Dems and Progressives just whine about how evil the Bush administration is. Why not give us alternatives? Why not, for example, propose a border strategy? Instead of dismissing those opposed to gay marriage as prejudiced religious fanatics, why not propose a form of civil unions that most Americans can live with? Instead of saying the words "Patriot Act" and expecting everyone to cower in horror, why not tackle a way to better protect America while continuing to protect Americans from their own government? There are so many issues, from immigration to privacy where liberals would do well to reach out to Bush voters. There's gotta be a positive way to channel all the energy they're wasting on hating Bush, right? Right?

    If I saw someone carrying that bag, I would assume they were paying homage to our great president. You mean it's a protesting piece? Who knew!?
