Dems Throw Their Slime at Repubs

The Democrats are a party which exists mainly to tax and spend the public money and convert the private sector into government programs. And enforce Thought Control and other Orwellian 1984 concepts like Newspeak and Memory Hole in the dinosaur mainstream media, especially the dinosaur networks ABC, NBC, and CBS. Jim Vanderhei of the WaPo notes:
a much broader Democratic campaign to politicize the Foley page scandal over the final four weeks of the campaign, Democratic candidates and strategists say.

Top Democratic officials believe "that anybody who had a personal vulnerability before this is totally [at risk] with the spotlight on scandal," said a Democratic aide familiar with the party's plan to take advantage of the Foley affair. "Frankly, it is a tough environment out there if you have a problem with the bottle or the zipper."

Carl Forti, spokesman for the National Republican Congressional Committee (NRCC), said the effectiveness of the charges "often depends on what the person is accused of having done and their reputation and standing in the community -- national climate has nothing to do with it."

Former Republican National Committee chairman Ed Gillespie said Democrats are dangerously close "to overreaching" in their attacks, risking a political backlash like the one that damaged Republicans after they pushed for the impeachment of President Bill Clinton over the Monica S. Lewinsky scandal in 1998. Democratic operatives said they are aware of this possibility but are calculating that, as long as the attacks are at the local level, they will not backfire.

This is a dangerous game, as the Dems may disgust the majority of Americans, who are much more religious, moral and high-principled than the average Dem politico, which is not saying much!
