That Sound You Hear is Donk Hopes Imploding

The Democrats have tried unsuccessfully to paint themselves as able protectors of our nation on a par with the GOP. They've bent themselves into pretzels to downplay the significance of the recent British terror arrests. They've further tried to portray the current war on terror as a bungled operation that has done nothing to make the nation safer.

Hell, even some have gone so far as to say the whole terror threat is overblown.

The nation at large doesn't think so:

NEW YORK (AP) _ A majority of American voters believe the Sept. 11 terrorist attack was a more significant historical event than the Japanese attack on Pearl Harbor, a poll says.

The Quinnipiac University survey found sharp divisions among age groups about the overall importance of each event, although even people who were alive in 1941 put Sept. 11 ahead.

Overall, 56 percent of voters picked Sept. 11 as more significant, while 33 percent picked Pearl Harbor. Voters older than 65 picked Sept. 11 as more significant 42 percent of the time, compared to 39 percent for Pearl Harbor.

This indicates that terrorism and the 9/11 attacks are still on people's minds.

The Donks have hoped to take the House, Senate or both this Novemeber and have tried to overcome the perception they are weak on national defense. They've not been able to do that.
