Morning Jay: Why Mourdock Defeated Lugar
6:00 AM, May 11, 2012 • By JAY COST
It is amazing to me that much of the left is still not attuned to the nature of this public discontent. It’s not just their take on Lugar-Mourdock, but their seemingly unshakeable confidence that Obama is a lock for reelection. Increasingly, they’re reminding me of the Patriots in Super Bowl XLII; convinced they were going to win through most of the game, even though the Giants were matching them play-for-play, they only woke up to the threat too late. And so, they finished the season 18-1.
Liberal Democrats seem to be of the same mindset, and it shows with their one-sided reaction to Lugar. If they don’t wake up soon, they could be in for a nasty surprise in November.
