It's SO simple - the Democrats lose because they are weak. Their message does not resonate with common folk and, even if they did have a strong message, they have no one dynamic enough to deliver it. Hillary Clinton proved to be disastrous as a candidate and no one has stepped up to fill the void. Bernie Sanders had the message but was the wrong vehicle. Yes, he represented change but not in a package that so-called Main Street America was prepared to vote for. Let's face it, we still have a long way to go before most of America, frankly, would be willing to vote for a cranky, old Jew from Brooklyn! That's pathetic but, I believe, sadly accurate.
So, instead, we have a Reality TV Show Host as President of the United States.
It's SO simple - because he crafted a message that people wanted to hear. Whether or not he spoke the truth is not important - at least not to them. He gave them hope. Democrats believe it to be false hope but have offered NO viable alternative. So, in a sense, we got what we paid for - a pathetic megalomaniac who at least has the balls to move his agenda forward.
During the campaign, the Democrats were completely tone-deaf as to what voters truly wanted, i.e. a path to economic viability. Why should they care for helping others when they can't help themselves? It's the logic of hunger. Social programs are worthless when they help others solely at your expense. But, they were too arrogant to listen and they paid the price - and, still are and do. At a time when we were speaking of the end of the Republican party the complete opposite happened. Now, the Democrats are reeling just to save their own asses. And, they have no one to blame but themselves.
I'm tired of hearing the Democrats whine - and, then continue to lose. And, they will continue to do so until they craft a message that reaches most Americans. Until then, the Orange Man will eat their lunch and all they can do is cry about it.
WAKE UP. PUT UP. OR, SHUT UP.
