Kerry is Right: No More Slogans Instead of Facts

Senator John Kerry was asked why Democrats are predicted to suffer big losses in the upcoming election.  His response:

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 by the facts or the truth or what’s happening.

For once, we enthusiastically agree with John Kerry!  It’s time we Americans demand that politicians stop insulting our intelligence with vacuous slogans and simplistic diversions in lieu of facts and truth.  We’re reminded of some slogans from Senator Kerry’s Presidential campaign including:

A lifetime of service and strength

The Real deal

Let America be America again!

Together, we can build a stronger America.

Hope is on the Way.

Perhaps the last two served as first draft for for  Barack Obama’s 2008 Campaign:

We are the people we’ve been waiting for.

Change we can believe in

Yes we can!

Senator Kerry seems to  have forgotten the preposterously unrealistic slogans from the President and the Democrats during the campaign to pass the three thousand page monstrosity they call “health care reform:”

If you like your current health plan you can keep it.

Our health care plan will save each family $2,500.

We will stop the increases in insurance premiums.

Our plan will be paid for by finding savings within the existing health care system.

Not a Dollar of the Medicare Trust Fund will be used to pay for this plan.

(Well, perhaps the last one is technically correct since the so-called “trust fund” is an accounting fiction with no money.)

Has Kerry heard these examples of “intellectual debate” offered by the President in defense of his disastrous economic “stimulus:”

They [Republicans] drove the economy into the ditch.

We’re moving in the right direction!

If you want to go forward you put the car in D.  If you want to go backward it’s R.
