Democrats don’t want Democrats to win. Their only goal is to prevent Republicans from winning, no matter what the cost.
Former President Bill Clinton tried to persuade Florida Democratic Rep. Kendrick Meek to drop out of his U.S. Senate race and support Gov. Charlie Crist’s independent candidacy in hopes of thwarting a victory by Republican Marco Rubio.
People familiar with the matter said the former president and other top national Democrats worry a win by the charismatic Mr. Rubio, a 39-year-old Cuban-American, would make him a political phenomenon capable of boosting the GOP’s chances with Hispanic voters.
That’s right. The Democrats don’t want Meek to win, they just want Rubio to lose. The nation’s first black president knew that the African American voters were so locked in to Democratic orthodoxy and marching orders that they could even be talked out of voting for a black Democrat and persuaded in to voting for a white, life-long Republican (who only quit the party when he lost in the Republican primary).
Apparently, the Hispanic vote isn’t so solidly Democrat as the black vote. As a consequence, if you have to push some black guy off the bus to make room for white guys (only in the back, though) in order to keep the Hispanics from leaving the party, so be it.
