On his radio show today, Dennis Prager said that none of the candidates (about a dozen) he donated money to won.

“The New York Times says President Obama has not explained himself well enough. I agree. The New York Times should be listened to by the president. He should now speak to the country every day. It should be like a diary. He’s already out-spoken every president in history.

“The problem is not that he can’t sell what he does. The irony is that he didn’t even try to. If he would try to sell what he has done, he would’ve been even more defeated. He never spoke in defense of the healthcare bill or cap-and-trade. He spoke about how we don’t know where the money is coming from for all of these Republican ads. He didn’t try to explain his policies.”

“I’ve never had the clarity I’ve had about any politician as I think I have about this politician. I thank you, sir. You have created a conservative movement beyond my dreams. You have clarified left-right differences better than anyone in public life.”

“This president is a leftist. He has never surprised me. Asking him to change would be like asking Ronald Reagan to change.”

“The president reads yesterday as I have to sound sweeter. I have to return to my unity theme with which I got elected.”

“John Boehner cited my line — the bigger the government gets, the smaller the American people get.

“When it gets to the House speaker, you know your line has traveled. I first said the line to House Republicans last November in Baltimore.”

“Remember that they said that about the lottery? The state should definitely encourage gambling because it will bring in all this money for education. Of course it was just spent. Whenever you hear money will go to X in California, it means it will go to unions. Whenever you hear education or infrastructure or invest, substitute the word ‘union.'”

“In one column, I put ‘progressive’ in quotes. What if conservatives decided to call themselves morally serious? Would you on the left adopt that term? The morally serious yesterday came out with a statement…”

H3: Sinking into the Sea
Prager H3: California, contrary to the rest of the country, had a Democratic sweep. Now we get to see what a state run by the Left looks like.

In May, Dennis said:

“This is the most important [mid-term] election in modern American history. This November is a referendum of what we want America to be. There is one party that stands for American values. If we do not change both houses, we lose. That is how important it is.”
