Pelosi to Voters: Democrats have no ideas, but we aren’t Trump
They called Seinfeld the show about nothing. But Seinfeld has nothing on the Democrats.
These people are truly about nothing. Watching the SOTU speech, where President Trump highlighted win after win for America on domestic and international fronts, the angry Democrats sat on their hands.
Here is the list of what Democrats didn’t applaud.
– Lowest black unemployment in recorded history
– $1,000 to $3,000 bonuses for employees
– 2.4 million jobs created
– 200,000 new manufacturing jobs; jobs Obama said would never come back
– American flag
– In God We Trust
– National anthem
– Secure borders
– Merit-based immigration
– Ridding America of MS13 “dreamers”
– Fighting opioid abuse
– Jerusalem as capital of Israel
So, if these results aren’t praise worthy then what is?
Out of Touch
The Democrats have constantly underestimated Trumps’ political appeal. Hence, they lost the 2016 presidential election.
But it seems the Democrats still haven’t learned the error of their ways. The reason why they didn’t win in 2016 is the party literally offered nothing of substance to the American people. Clinton and the Obama administration offered no real change or solutions to the “change” Obama promised 8 years earlier.
We wrote about how pathetic it was when Clinton came up with the campaign slogan “stronger together” to try and appeal to American voters.
We watched Hillary Clinton flounder around, searching for that elusive “what do I stand for” thing. In fact, there were like 84 core messages before her camp settled on the uber-lame “Stronger Together.”
That message failed miserably, as black people didn’t get the memo. But hey, no worries. The Dems’ new core message is being worked on.
NY House Dem Caucus Chairman Joe Crawley explains:
That message is being worked on. We’re doing everything we can to simplify it, but at the same time provide the meat behind it as well. So that’s coming together now.
And as the AP noted,
The admission from the No. 4 House Democrat — that his party lacks a clear, core message even amid Republican disarray — highlights the Democrats’ dilemma eight months after President Donald Trump and the GOP dominated last fall’s elections, in part, because Democrats lacked a consistent message.
Funny the Democrats just now recognize they don’t have a core message.
I’m curious as to when was the last time the Democrats actually had a core message. And if it’s lost, then I suggest they look in the last place they put it.
If I were a Democrat I’d start looking in the year 2008. Their message was “Change we can believe in!”, and Obama was the messenger. It seems America got the message, and in 2016 decided to implement “Change we can REALLY believe in!”
So after that miserable attempt to win the presidency, Democrats hope to win back Congress and the House in 2018. But with what message?
“We must resist Trump!”
Recall for example the most recent comments made by Nancy Pelosi on how much Americans will be saving due to the GOP tax Bill. Pelosi dismissed the savings as “crumbs.”
“In terms of the bonus that corporate America received versus the crumbs that they are giving to workers to kind of put the schmooze on — it’s so pathetic,” Pelosi said Thursday, according to Fox News. “I think it’s insignificant.”
Then, you have the recent government shutdown to which Trump labeled as the “Schumer Shutdown” because Democrats were hell-bent on attaching an immigration bill for “dreamers” to a spending bill for American families.
After the government shutdown, the message that resonated all across America was loud and clear: Democrats chose the care and concerns of illegal aliens over America citizens.
This was displayed again most recently at Trump’s State of the Union speech where Democrats refused to stand to honor two African American families who lost their children due to the gang violence of MS-13.
These families consisted of two fathers and two mothers — Evelyn Rodriguez, Freddy Cuevas, Elizabeth Alvarado, and Robert Mickens:
“I just want what’s right to be done,” Rodriguez told The New York Times on Sunday. “Everybody should put their political agenda aside and think about what’s going on in our country.”
Rodriguez has praised Trump’s past efforts to address the nation’s gang problems, specifically MS-13. She attended an event he held on Long Island in July to discuss the issue.
“I appreciate him acknowledging that we have a serious problem here on Long Island,” Rodriguez said during an interview on Fox News following the July event. “He said, ‘This cannot be tolerated anymore. We cannot accept this behavior.’ That made us think, ‘Hey, someone’s listening to us.'”
And how did Democrats respond to such tragedy? By sitting on their hands.
That strong message of not honoring American lives lost due to illegal immigration is not about protesting Trump anymore. It’s about turning your backs on the people you swore to protect. And believe me, Americans take note of that.
So how will Democrats appeal to voters come 2018? Where are their ideas for a better America? Where are they addressing American concerns?
I haven’t seen them speak on anything of importance.
I think very soon, a lot of Democrats will sit from the comfort of their living rooms and not in DC. If the SOTU illuminated anything, it’s that Democrats refuse to work with President Trump out of pure spite. Hating Trump is not a winning strategy. Unless you are putting on a show about nothing.
