Truth 'doesn't matter' to the Democrats
Once again, that character called "Scrawls" misrepresents (no, actually, he lies!) the Republican Party's position on the voter ID controversy/law. The theme in his latest political cartoon fiasco printed in the Citizen is that Republicans don't want poor blacks to vote only if they're going to cast a vote for Obama, and that somehow, requiring photo IDs may prevent that from happening. The Repubs are drawn as mean-spirited elephants wearing gestapo-like military uniforms, who are checking the IDs of blacks who are characterized as 3-foot tall teenagers.
The fact of the matter is that in every case brought before a federal court dealing with the requirement for some sort of legitimate identification in order to cast a vote, the courts have upheld that requirement as constitutional, and that includes Georgia. Ironically, the Democrats are requiring all the delegates attending their upcoming National Convention to show ... guess what ... a picture ID! Can anyone deny the hypocrisy?
Debbie Wasserman Schultz, the chairman of the Democratic National Campaign was interviewed on CNN by Cooper Anderson on Thursday evening, Aug. 23, during which he asked her about an LA Times article regarding a plank on the Republican platform, and the fact that she deliberately misquoted and lied about the intent of what the Times was reporting. In a heated exchange, she finally said that "It doesn't matter" (that her representation was a lie).
So the Democrat approach in this presidential race will have as its political centerpiece, an approach that promotes any distortion of truth because such a distortion (lie) will be supported by their principle that "It doesn't matter." Scrawls can center his future cartoons around more lies. "It doesn't matter." Joe Biden can make threats that Republicans "Will put y'all back in chains" to a mostly black audience, and "It doesn't matter."
I had an uncle who, during the course of his whole adult life, voted a straight Republican ticket until the day he died. Now he votes Democrat. But: "It Doesn't Matter!"
