Crush Liberalism

Liberalism: Why think when you can “feel”?

House Dems: Hey, you know what we need to do next time? Get a better message out!

Stuck on stupid.

House Democrats kicked off their annual retreat here with a vow to improve the flawed messaging that contributed to the loss of their majority last fall.

“We never stopped to … campaign about what we did,” Rep. Xavier Becerra (D-Calif.), the caucus vice chairman, told reporters in an opening press conference. He said he told the former Speaker, Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.), that in retrospect, the party needed to better promote its accomplishments after the passage of the contentious healthcare law last March.

“I said Madam Speaker, the problem with Democrats is we never give the public the chance to savor our victories,” Becerra said, as Rep. James Clyburn (D-S.C.), the assistant leader, nodded in agreement. “What we didn’t do was take the time to do tap-dances about what we had just done, but we did the work of the people.”  (If, by “work of the people”, you mean “told them to go to Hell while we rammed this unwanted legislation down their throats, then yeah…”work of the people”! – CL)

“Too bad we didn’t message it better,” he added.

Ah, I see.  If only Alan Grayson had done the moonwalk through Mount Dora while rapping the virtues of a massively unpopular job-and-health-care-killing bill that nobody wanted, he just might have avoided that 18% drubbing he got at the hands of Daniel Webster.  Got it.  Thanks for the clarification.

It’s never the policies.  Nope, it’s the “messaging”, the packaging of the policies, that needs to be improved.  Considering these morons received a loud and clear message last November and they still don’t get it, I doubt that they need to be concerned with “messaging” these days.

  1. It’s difficult to believe the Democrats can actually believe their own rhetoric. But then again, it’s difficult to believe Democrats can believe in their policies, either.

  2. Just look at convicted criminals. They spend years in prison denying that they are guilty to the point that many of them BELIEVE themselves…same here. You tell yourself something with enough conviction, you can program yourself to believe it.

  3. I hope they stay delusional. I find it amusing.
