Because They Don't Have Any...
Appearing at a "town hall meeting" in support of Sen. Bill Nelson in Eatonville, Fla. Barack Obama shows himself to be an honest Democrat (if such a thing exists.) "The Democrats at times have lost their way," he said. "We are trying to decide what our core values are." Thank you, Captain Obvious.
Ask a conservative or Republican what their core values are. They will have an answer. Not a wishy-washy, "if-then", poll driven answer. A black and white, no room for grey answer. In fact, you probably won't have to ask. We make no secret about what we believe.
Try to get a liberal or Democrat to tell you their position on an issue. They'll have to stick their finger in the wind to see what the polling numbers tell them to think. And their "core" values will change, frequently. About the only "core" value they hold that doesn't change is that murdering unborn babies is a Constitutional right.
Obama said that it doesn't matter whether the party is left or right (yes, it does!) but "are we true to our core values." Wait a minute. I thought they were "trying to decide what their core values are." How can they be true to something they don't have? So what I've suspected turns out to be true. The Democrats have no values and are true to nothing.
