Dems got shellacked at the polls yesterday, that’s not in doubt. But now arrives the analysis to figure out who’s at fault.
Could it maybe be a chairperson whose policies are quite unpopular? NAH !!!
According to Twitchy regular Donna Brazile, it’s that the candidates ran away from those policies and away from the president 😛 TAGEND
Exactly.If anything, the big races that Dems lost yesterday were because of their embrace of President Obama’s policies or the embrace of future Dem policies.
In Kentucky, Matt Bevin won the governorship with a promise to roll back Obamacare — what Hillary Clinton tells is swell 😛 TAGEND With an African-American woman as operating mate , no less 😛 TAGEND Houston’s ” HERO ” equal-rightsordinance — also championed by Hillary Clinton — lost big, too 😛 TAGEND Earlier in the day Clinton even sparred with Texas Governor Greg Abbott over it 😛 TAGEND Marijuana in Ohio — a favorite topic of Bernie Sanders? Up in smoke 😛 TAGEND Sanctuary cities were up for a vote in San Francisco. Another loss 😛 TAGEND With Terry McAuliffe’s embrace of more gun-control legislation in the news and millions spent by Michael Bloomberg on anti-gun ads, the GOP kept control of the Virginia sate senate 😛 TAGEND And let’s not forget the Dem push for a $15 -per-hour minimum wage. Another loss 😛 TAGEND The one bright spot for Dems last night was in Pennsylvania where they now have a majority on the country Supreme Court. Brazile writes that their win was because of an Obama direct mail piece 😛 TAGEND Meh. The GOP was criticized for giving up on these races early on 😛 TAGEND And a Republican Tea Party extremist did win the special election for country senator in the 37 th district 😛 TAGEND We’ll end it with this. President Obama was golfing the Saturday before the election and not doing a thing to assist any of the Dem candidates who lost big on Tuesday 😛 TAGEND
Sorry, Donna. Dems have a problem and it is the president.
