This is why people don’t vote for the Democratic Party and why the big blue wave of cash won’t win the 2018 midterm elections for them:
In December of 2016 – right after Hillary Clinton and the rest of the Democratic candidates lost big to Trump, the worst presidential candidate of all time – what happened? Their leader, Nancy Pelosi was asked directly what the Democratic Party was going to do to change this heinous defeat.
Know what she said? Do you remember? I do.
She said the Democratic Party wasn’t going to change anything. Keep the same policies they lost the 2016 elections on. Know what they were going to change?
Their marketing. Change the marketing so people “get the message.”
Same shit. Different wrapper.
This is why people are not going to vote for Democrats in this so-called “Blue wave.”
Nancy Pelosi comes right out and says they aren’t changing anything. They don’t have to, she says. When there is a Republican president (Um, that would be Trump), people vote for Democrats in Congress and Senate during the midterm election.
That’s what she says. Watch it. Read it.
Her arrogance – their actual policies don’t have to change, they just have to figure out how to “sell them to the working man” better – is going to get them destroyed.
The Democratic party was warned. They were given a chance to do something differently. They refused. They did not change to popular, progressive, Bernie Sanders New Deal Democrat FDR policies. That’s what Americans said they want.
They didn’t listen, Pelosi, Schumer, and the rest of them.
You didn’t listen. You’ll reap what you’ve sown… the scythe, the whirlwind.
You are arrogant and stupid.
You. didn’t. learn. a. single. fucking. thing. from. Hillary. Clinton’s. self-destruction.
Did you? Keep doing what we’re doing, and throw more money at it.
That’s the plan. Buy more ads. That’s the whole entire plan, isn’t it?
People know the Resistance is fake.
People know Russiagate is fake.
Sure Donald Trump is fake. Everyone knows he’s fake. Even his minions know in their heart of hearts he’s a fake.
The difference is Trump doesn’t pretend to be respectable.
What are you selling, Nancy? That you’re respectable?
People are tired of being PC.
People are tired of being told they have to vote for someone just because they are black or female or something.
HillBillary Clinton didn’t help people. The poor got poorer.
Barack Obama didn’t help people. Certainly not black people.
They helped the banks. They helped themselves.
Identity politics. Political correctness. We can’t pay the dentist with that stuff — I asked!
Yet you Democrats still believe you are always right and you won’t listen to the people. Instead, you listen to your corporate patrons, the ones who give you the big big money. And you take their damned money, don’t you?
But you won’t change anything…
Except for marketing.
“People don’t like Trump. We’re not going to change anything. But at least we’re not Trump.”
^ That is the message ^ we’re sold. It’s loud and clear.
How’d “At least I’m not Trump!” work out for Hillary Clinton?
It’s liable to be famous last words, as people bail from the sinking ship.
Learn to swim.
DICKERSON: The Democratic party is in a moment of questioning about its identity. You were reelected to lead the Democrats in the house.
What do you tell Democrats who want a new direction and what are you going to do differently?
PELOSI: I don’t think people want a new direction. Our values unify us and our values are about supporting America’s working families. that’s one that everyone is in agreement on. What we want is a better connection of our message to working families in our country, and that clearly in the election showed that that message wasn’t coming through. But we are united in terms of the security of our country, which is our first responsibility. To be smart and strong and not reckless in how we protect the American people, strong in how we protect our economy.
DICKERSON: Here’s my question, though. Democrats — since 2008, the numbers are ghastly for Democrats. In the Senate, Democrats are down 10 percent, in the House, down 19.3 percent, and in governors, 35 percent. The Democrats are getting clobbered at every level over multiple elections. That seems like a real crisis for the party.
PELOSI: Well, you’re forgetting that we were up 50 seats. We went up so high in 2006 and 2008. And let me just put that in perspective.
When President Clinton was elected, Republicans came in big in the next election. When President Bush was president, we came in big in the next election — in subsequent elections. When President Obama became president, the Republicans came in big in the next election.
DICKERSON: I guess my question is, the Republicans reacted to their losses with a big revolution and a change. They have a very new president at the top of their party now.
You have somebody like Agricultural Secretary Tom Vilsack saying that the Democratic Party is like a tree that — quote — “looks healthy on the outside, but is in the throes of a slow and long-term demise.”
PELOSI: Well, I have enormous respect for the secretary, but I’m more optimistic about the strength of the Democratic Party.
And what I would say, because you talked about these numbers, some reasons to be hopeful, because it’s necessary, because this is about policy. It’s not about politics. It’s about politics for some, but, for us, it’s about protecting Medicare, Social Security, good- paying jobs for America’s workers, protecting a woman’s right to choose, issues that unify us.
But let me just say this. In any time that a presidential — the change in president from one party to the next, the states receive an infusion of talent. President Obama going out of the office, sadly, not having President Clinton come in, but those Democrats will go back, run for governor, run for Congress, state legislatures and the rest. And we will build up the numbers that you’re talking about there.
DICKERSON: All right, we are going to have to leave it there, Leader Pelosi. Thank you. We look forward to having you back.
PELOSI: OK, but, anyway, upward and onward.
DICKERSON: Thank you.
And we will be right back.
PELOSI: Thank you.
“I’m rooting for Nancy!,” GOP Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy said last week. “She may have more support in our conference than her own conference.”
