On The Democratic Response

In case anyone actually watches or cares…

Stephen GreenThe response is from a mortician and a real estate saleswoman with too many tucks. I’m not sure I can watch. Not without another martini, anyway.

Ankle Biting PunditsCan anyone name one new vision the Democrats have for America that would excite people and make them want to vote Democratic? Me neither. It’s all “hate Bush” 24/7.

Peter CookAll in all, nice effort but pessimism and dour talk should never be the answer to optimism and hope. You’d think they would have learned this by now.

Erick Erickson at RedStateThe Democrat response was lacking… I kept waiting for Mr. Rogers to get out of the grave and beat the mess out of Senator Reid for the bad impression. Congresswoman Pelosi came across as weak in her first major public address. The Democrats have a long way to go and they need to get a refund if Pelosi and Reid had PR coaches for the night.

Steven TaylorI hate the opposition rebuttal
I hate it when my guy wins
I hate it when its my guy who spins
I hate it cause it’s a huge bore
I hate it each year more and more

Willis Cheng – I would honestly have preferred a Howard Dean to provide the rebuttal, because he would be up front with his feelings — screaming that the speech sucked, just cause he hates the f****** Republicans. It’s much better than listening to Pelosi lie about how Bush hasn’t provided a plan on defending America from the Islamofacists, only to cover it with something along the lines of “I really support the troops”.

John HawkinsIf you work really hard — come from a wealthy family, marry a rich widow, or amass a fortune as a trial lawyer — and are willing to lie day in and day out about what kind of shape Social Security is in, you too can be the chief obstructionist in a political party that’s slowly circling the drain in the bathtub of America’s body politic!

Andrew SullivanA “Marshall plan for America”? Could these people be lamer? More out of touch? More pathetically pandering? Just when you thought you couldn’t get any worse than Tom Daschle, you get this … Jeez. “Groundhog day”??? “We can do better”?? Who writes this guff?
