Democrat Better Messaging

better messaging

The Democrats need more than better messaging. Politico sums up their predicament in a piece called “Democrats in the Wilderness“:

They were counting on a Clinton win to paper over a deeper rot they’ve been worrying about—and to buy them some time to start coming up with answers. In other words, it wasn’t just Donald Trump. Or the Russians. Or James Comey. Or all the problems with how Clinton and her aides ran the campaign. Win or lose, Democrats were facing an existential crisis in the years ahead—the result of years of complacency, ignoring the withering of the grass roots and the state parties, sitting by as Republicans racked up local win after local win.

Eviscerating ObamaCare

When President Obama met with party leaders in 2009 Eric Cantor pitched some ideas for the stimulus bill.  The president responded, “Elections have consequences and, at the end of the day, I won.” The 800 billion dollar stimulus went on to pass with three Republican votes. And ObamaCare rammed its way through Congress without any Republican support. At the time Democrats controlled the White House, Senate, and House.

Eviscerating ObamaCare

Now that the worm has turned Republicans are committed to eviscerating ObamaCare. But they’re divided over how to do the deed.

The program has never been popular with voters. A new Rasmussen survey finds that only 12% of voters want to keep it as it is. However 56% want the law improved piece by piece. Only 30% want to see the program immediately brought to room temperature.

Democratic Party Meltdown

The Democratic Party meltdown continues.

The party’s condition took a turn for the worse when Jill Stein’s election recount turned up more votes than voters in Detroit. The recount was ended.

Then John Podesta demanded that the 538 members of the Electoral College be briefed by the CIA. The purpose being to inform the electors of Russian efforts to elect Trump.

For his part, President Obama is back to drawing red lines. He says the U.S. will respond to Russia “at a time and place of our choosing.”

Meanwhile, President-elect The Donald tweets, “Are we talking about the same cyber attack where it was revealed the head of the DNC illegally gave Hillary the questions to the debate?”

Big Government

In his 1996 State of the Union speech Bill Clinton signed the death certificate for the era of big government. He went on to challenge Congress to send him a welfare reform bill. Congress did just that and he signed it.

But Big Gov was Rasputin-like. According to the Cato Institute federal spending grew 60% during the George W. Bush years. Then in 2012 Barack Obama killed Clinton’s signature Welfare reform and Rasputin was back.

Hillary Clinton, pushed to the left by Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, campaigned to expand the Big Government command and control economy even further. But she lost.

Big Government RIP?

So Rasputin is dead again.

Now what’s this Donald Trump trillion dollar stimulus plan all about?

Walking Dead

Some critics say The Walking Dead went too far in its season opener. The episode featured violence with a baseball bat rigged with barbed wire.

Critics also say Donald Trump has gone too far as his reality show campaign season closes. The final episodes feature claims the election is rigged.

Dead Voters

Liberals say voter fraud is a myth. Trump cites a 2012 Pew research report that says there are 1.8 million dead voters on the rolls.

Rudi Giuliani says, “Dead people generally vote for Democrats rather than Republicans.”

Not to worry. The Russians have offered to monitor the election.
