Scarcely has the 2016 election passed – you know, the one where Democrats got their asses handed to them in the White House, as well as at various poll contests around the nation – and those on the left are already trying to strategize a rebound.
In fact, they’re scrambling to find a way to come out unscathed, or at least, only partially bruised, from Trump’s promised first 100-days’ reforms.
Sadly for them – happily for conservatives – they’re coming up short on ideas.
“As Donald Trump’s inauguration draws near, Democrats fear they remain woefully unprepared to fight the new president’s agenda,” Politico reported.
Think about it: they’re right to fear.
President Obama, their overly aggressive bulldog leader who thinks nothing of dozing around Congress to dictate with a pen and phone, is leaving office. Equally vicious Sen. Harry Reid has stepped away from the Senate. And the House has reelected a Minority Leader who promises absolutely no change – and therefore, certainly no hope.
What’s a poor Democrat to do?
“It’s a very serious concern,” said Bill Richardson, the former New Mexico governor and a 2008 presidential candidate, Politico reported. “I just went on TV twice today on Fox and MSNBC on the Cabinet appointments and I winged it. … What do we do? Criticize everything [Trump] does?”
Without a message, the Democrats are doomed, Richardson suggested.
“We need something now,” he said, Politico reported. “Most of the Democrats I talk to are down and they’re asking who’s in charge.”
Boo-hoo. That’ll happen when a political party – the Democratic Party – pulls the country so far from its founding roots that even a moderately conservative leader like Trump seems a shock to the system.
Here’s a thought, Democrats: Get used to the shock. Trump’s only just beginning and really, you brought it on yourselves. Conservatives have been feeling marginalized for years and you shouldn’t be surprised that they decided to rebel.
That’s what happens when you step on throats to get your own way.
