Barone on Dems' dirty littly secret

Michael Barone points out that Karl Rove is right and notes:
One reason that the Democrats are squawking so much about Rove's attack on "liberals" is that he has put the focus on a fundamental split in the Democratic Party -- a split among its politicians and its voters.

On the one hand, there are those who believe that this is a fundamentally good country and want to see success in Iraq. On the other hand, there are those who believe this is a fundamentally bad country and want more than anything else to see George W. Bush fail.

He cites polling last year which showed that Bush supporters were united in their belief that America is good. Kerry voters split down the middle on this fundamental question.

I wrote earlier this year in Mr. Bush -- Please Divide Us, the GOP would be wise to exploit this division. Karl Rove's speech is a good first step. Voters need to be given the choice between supporting the Michael Moore view of America or the George Bush view.

Real simple -- if you hate America, think we are evil and stupid -- vote for Michael Moore's party. If you love America and think we are a force for good in the world, vote Republican. The more liberals scream about the unfairness of the rhetoric, the more clearly defined the choice will be.
