John Kerry Blames Democrat Woes on Uninformed Voters

A testy U.S. Sen. John F. Kerry yesterday blamed clueless voters with short attention spans for the uphill battle beleaguered Democrats are facing against Republicans across the nation.

“We have an electorate that doesn’t always pay that much attention to what’s going on so people are influenced by a simple slogan rather than the facts or the truth or what’s happening,” Kerry told reporters after touring the Boston Medical Center yesterday.

John Kerry is still understandably angry from the 2004 presidential election which he believes George W. Bush stole from him. Or perhaps he believes that he lost because of the same sort of stupid Americans he's still having to deal with now, who were not paying enough attention six years ago to vote for the right candidate. But this sort of patrician, elitist attitude is exactly why not only the Democrats will face severe losses in the November elections, but so will many incumbent Republicans.

Kerry has it 180 degrees turned around -- the reason why the Dimocrats will face record losses is precisely because the average American voter is paying more attention to politics and economics than ever before. Most of the last decade saw Americans concerned primarily with foreign policy, i.e. the illegal wars in the Middle East, that is if they could be bothered to pull themselves away from Monday Night Football and American Idol. The current situation in this country is far too dire for such distractions to be largely effective anymore. Washington D.C. will experience the wrath of the citizenry in a few short weeks. John Kerry thinks it is we who are clueless when in fact he is the one completely out of touch.
