Why Democrats Still Don't Get The Religious

This morning I’m going to experiment with “Do-it-yourself” blogging. I’m way to busy to write it up at length, but two stories in today’s NY Times present a rather interesting juxtaposition.

In this story, we hear the Democrats are making great strides to pander to the the religious people of the country after they got their hats handed to them in November. -but from the same issue- We get this story about how even though Bush mentions religion less than Clinton, the Democrats hate him for it.

Then consider the number of Democrats who believe that telling children to think is some sort of religious doctrine and you have the problem the Democrats face.

They want to pander to the religious like they do the gays, the unions and assorted minorities but the religious can not be bought off with election cycle platitudes. When the Democrats are “religious hostile” in everything they do and say, it makes it real hard for them to get votes from the religious folks come election time.

Read the two stories, you’ll see their dilemma.

Note: I’m not overtly religious but I do have enough commonsense to understand that if you spend three years insulting people for their beliefs, then a year asking for their vote based on their beliefs, you probably are not going to get it. Apparently nobody in the entirety of the Democrat party has figured that out.
