Democrats’ Predictably BAD 2018 Mid-Term Election Strategy
The desperation of the Democrats is easier to detect than the smell of toddler’s poopy diaper. And it’s evident in their 2018 Mid-Term Election strategy.
Their latest strategy centers on the tried-and-failed strategy of Hillary Clinton. Women empowerment, aka “I”m with HER!”
Kirsten Gillibrand has led repurposed version of “I’m with HER!” that I call the “Destroy All Men”. This began not long after Trump got elected. The idea was to paint Trump, ergo all Trump voters as sexually abusive misogynist. Further, as Hillary Clinton recently suggested, the wives and girlfriends of these men voted as their men did out of fear or stupidity.
In the aftermath, Gillibrand got Al Franken and John Conyers kicked out of politics. Ironically, the target, Trump remains unscathed.
Enter Democrat Chick Strategy Part II: Stormy Daniels.
I’d rather watch 80-year olds have sex, than to see any more of Stormy Daniels. But the media is relentless on a story that has exactly zero significance.
The other night both MSNBC and CNN ran stories on Daniels and Trump’s denial of knowing about her settlement. Forget that the supposed affair happened 11 years ago. Because the embattled media needs a lifeline, something to stem the Trump tide.
One would think the media gets that the public at large has little interest in the sex lives of politicians. Ironically we have Democrat Bill “Not Sex” Clinton to thank for this, as well as the now unrelenting Stormy Daniels media.
All of this to say that Democrats pinning their political hopes to a porn star is a laughable strategy to me.
Now it appears the Left are employing “shock and awe”, as women politicians declare en masse. They must think, “Surely, they can’t deny us all!”
As AP reported:
The number of women running for the U.S. House of Representatives set a record Thursday, most of them Democrats motivated by angst over President Donald Trump and policies of the Republican-controlled Congress.
Their ranks will continue to swell, with candidate filing periods remaining open in more than half the states.
In many places, women are running for congressional seats that have never had female representation.
“It’s about time,” said Kara Eastman of Nebraska, one of two Democrats trying to win a primary and the right to challenge a GOP incumbent in a district centered in Omaha.
Essentially, Democrats have written off the majority of men. Frankly, I don’t think most women agree with this strategy.
The article continues,
A surge of women into this year’s midterm elections had been expected since the Women’s March demonstrations nationwide just after Trump’s inauguration in January 2017. Numbers analyzed by The Associated Press show that momentum is continuing.
After Virginia released its candidate list Thursday, a total of 309 women from the two major parties have filed candidacy papers to run for the House. That tops the previous record of 298 in 2012.
The AP analyzed data going back to 1992 from the Center for American Women and Politics at Rutgers University and did its own review of candidate information released by the states.
I find it interesting that people actually keep these kinds of statistics. Is there some magical figure we should hit? What the winning number, so we can get it over with?
Truth is, it will never end. Next will be black women, then Latina women, and so on.
Until there are no more men running, game on.
The article continues, showcasing why this strategy will fail again.
While just over half the nation’s population is female, four out of every five members of the U.S. House are men. The women’s candidacies won’t necessarily change that. They still have to survive party primaries and win the general election, often against an incumbent with name recognition and a large reservoir of campaign cash.
Even with the record numbers, women are still outnumbered by male candidates. But experts say the sheer number of women running combined with so many House seats open due to retirements or resignations provides one of the best opportunities for women to make real gains in terms of representation and a change in priorities.
Many of the female candidates have focused their campaign messages on health care, education, early childhood development, family leave and workplace equality.
The idea here is that these are “women’s issues”. How could men care about healthcare, education, and so on. After all, men are oppressors, even when they are nowhere to be found.
