House Democrats Learn to Speak Loudly While Carrying a Small Stick on Terrorism

Theodore Roosevelt said:
Speak softly and carry a big stick; you will go far.

House Democrats are concerned about being considered soft on terrorism in the eyes of voters. Instead of actually being tough on terrorism, they are going to school to learn how to sound tough on terrorism.
House Democrats have found a way to address Republicans’ polling advantage on national security: Teach candidates a better way to talk about the issue....

“The fact that Democrats have to train their own candidates on how to talk about defending America is an indictment not just of their candidates but of their policies, as well,” said Ken Spain, communications director for the National Republican Congressional Committee. “Our candidates’ message is simple: Stop treating terrorists like common criminals, don’t import terrorists into our communities and listen to our military and intelligence officials instead of attacking them.”

This is another sign Democrats think voters are too stupid to understand the truth.
