Instead of recognizing the fact that conservatives abandoned the Republican Party this past midterm election, Democrats are thinking that they have vanquished core conservative principals and dominate the political landscape. Charles Schumer, Senator from New York and media whore, stopped by the Daily News office to proclaim Reaganomics dead. As Mr. T would say, “I pity the fool”.
“We’re in better shape than [Republicans] are, because they don’t realize that Reaganomics is dead, that the Reagan philosophy is dead,” he said. “We realize that New Deal democracy, which is still our paradigm, which is sort of appeal to each group … that doesn’t work any more.”
He had said a bit earlier, “The old Reagan theory which dominated — which is, ‘Government is bad, it’s out of touch, chop off its hands as soon as it moves.’ — is over.” via The Daily News
So let these Democrats continue to weave a path towards large government and classic liberal “we know whats best for you thought”. Let the Charles Schumer’s tell us that big government is best for the country. These same liberals did not run on this platform in 2006, maybe they will have the cajones to run on big government in 2008.
My bet is on Reaganomics carrying the day.
