Former Sen. Joe Lieberman Says the Democratic Party Will Not Win Future Elections if Party Taken Over by Liberal Wing
FORMER DEMOCRAT SENATOR LIEBERMAN SAYS DEMS WILL NOT WIN FUTURE ELECTIONS IF MOONBATS TAKE OVER PARTY …
In the wake of the 2016 elections, former U.S. Sen. Joe Lieberman from Connecticut who ran as a Democrat and Independent stated that the Democrat Party will not win future elections if the liberal wing of the party takes over. He is 100% correct. The Democrat party is no longer the party of Truman or John F. Kennedy. Lieberman said, ”It’s certainly not the party that I got drawn to …”. The one time Democrat VP pick by Al Gore is saying that the Democrat party is lurching too far right and losing touch with the American people. However, the Democrat party is moving far left as they had a self-proclaimed socialist Bernie Sanders as a presidential candidate who appealed to nearly half of the party.
The Democrat party that once represented the working class people and the blue color individuals is no longer. Thus the reason why during the 2016 elections Trump not only pierced the Democrat “blue wall” of the Rust Belt, but knocked it down completely. With Donald trump victories in Pennsylvania, Michigan, Iowa and Wisconsin, his message resonated with voters who the Democrats have long forgot.
Former Sen. Joe Lieberman (I-Conn.) argues the Democratic Party will not win elections if the liberal wing of the party takes over.
“Here is my fear about the future of the Democratic Party. In a way, relatively speaking, Hillary Clinton was representative of … center-left of the Democratic Party, not the pure left,” Lieberman said in a radio interview with John Catsimatidis on Sunday.
“Now I think there will be a real attempt by the left-left of the Democratic Party to take over the party, and I don’t think that’s the way to go to make it an effective party,” he continued.
“It’s certainly not the party that I got drawn to … it’s not the party that I worked so hard for when Bill Clinton was president and it’s not going to be a winning party.”
Democrats have been grappling with the future of their party following Donald Trump’s upset win over Hillary Clinton last month. Republicans also maintained their majorities in both the House and Senate.
If the Democrats keep up their far left liberal leanings, they are in for a tough 2018 midterm elections. Of the 33 seats up for reelection in the U.S. Senate, Democrats or Independents who caucus with Democrats have 25 seats to defend, Republicans only 8. Nine of those Democrats Senate seats are in red states won by Donald Trump.
Kellyanne Conway for White House Press Secretary …
Watch Kellyanne Conway and how she eviscerates the LEFT and their faux arguments about Hillary Clinton. Kellyann discussed the Harvard Kennedy School Institute of Politics debate that was intended to record history by drawing out the internal deliberations of both campaigns. Instead, those on the LEFT lost their minds as they still cannot accept the fat that Hillary lost and Trump won. It is amazing that Democrats cannot just accept that they had a terrible candidate, who appealed and connected with no one and had no message.
Kellyanne Conway would make a fantastic White House press secretary as she would own these fools.
TRUMP SAYS DRAIN THE SWAMP AND DEMOCRATS STAND FOR THE ESTABLISHMENT STATUS QUO …
If you ever want to know why Democrats lost the 2016 elections one has to look no further than how they have handled themselves following the election. Yesterday, in a closed door vote, House Democratic minority leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) held off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-OH) 134 votes to 63. After Democrats got hammered in the 2016 elections seeing them lose the White House to Donald Trump, continue to be in the minority in the House and Senate, lose governorship’s and state house elections, the party that refuses to listen to the people opted to keep Pelosi and her top lieutenants, Reps. Steny Hoyer (MD) and Jim Clyburn (SC). This is just remarkable. The Democrat party is no longer the party of the middle class and blue collar people, its the party of the power elite who are so far out of touch with the American people. Democrats in Washington appear to like the swamp and just voted back in the establishment just after a referendum election against the establishment. Just how clueless is the Democrat party, the GOP is certainly rejoicing.
House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) on Wednesday fended off a challenge to her long leadership reign, defeating Rep. Tim Ryan (D-Ohio) in a closed-door vote prompted largely by Donald Trump’s unlikely ascension to the White House.
Pelosi got 134 votes to Ryan’s 63 — winning 68 percent of the votes after declaring before the election that she had the support of two-thirds of the caucus. The victory sends a message that while there’s a growing appetite for major changes in the party’s leadership structure and messaging tactics, it’s not strong enough to loosen Pelosi’s grip on a liberal-heavy group that’s rarely challenged her authority.
Ryan and his supporters had argued that the Democrats’ grim performance in this year’s elections — the latest in a string of cycles planting Republicans firmly in the majority — was a clear signal that Pelosi’s leadership strategy has failed to attract the broad coalition of voters required to return the Speaker’s gavel to the Democrats’ hands.
The critics pointed, in particular, to the party’s alienation of the middle-class Rust Belt workers, who flocked to Trump and secured victories for a long list of vulnerable Republicans down the ballot. Ryan, who represents an Ohio manufacturing district that’s struggled to keep pace with globalization and rebound from the Great Recession, said he was the right fit to make inroads with those voters.
Most Democrats disagreed, opting to keep Pelosi and her top lieutenants — Reps. Steny Hoyer (Md.) and Jim Clyburn (S.C.) — in charge of efforts to improve the party’s fortunes heading into the 2018 midterm elections.
THIS IS WHAT THE LEFT DOES WHEN THEY DON’T WIN ELECTIONS …
More evidence that the LEFT is losing their minds and just cannot accept they lost and Donald Trump won. Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean called President-elect Donald Trump’s chief strategist pick Steve Bannon “a Nazi.” Way to go Howie, could you be less productive? This is what the irrational LEFT does, when they got nothing. The reality is, this is why the LEFT lost. America got tired of anyone who doesn’t agree with Democrats being called a racist, sexist, anti-gay, anti-anything, and oh yes, a Nazi. This is right out of the Democrat playbook. How do we know? Why Wikileaks of course. In an interview Bannon stated, “I’m an economic nationalist. I am an America first guy.”For some reason Democrats like Dean have an issue with a White House administration putting America first. That could be another reason why Dems lost in 2016.
Because this loon has so much credibility … Dean is still screaming, or is it whining?
Former Vermont Gov. Howard Dean called President-elect Donald Trump’s chief strategist pick Steve Bannon “a Nazi.” In an interview with Canada’s CTV News, Dean, who is running for Democratic National Committee chair, a spot left vacant by former Chairwoman Debbie
Wasserman Schultz, called Bannon anti-Semitic, in addition to being “anti-Black and … anti-women.”
“It’s a big word and I don’t usually use it unless somebody’s really anti-Semitic, really misogynistic, really anti-Black,” Dean continued, adding that Trump is “a complicated guy.”
Bannon, a former executive chair of alt-right Breitbart News, was appointed by the President-elect to serve as chief strategist, making him one of the most powerful people entering the White House with Trump come January. The position does not requite Senate approval.
Who knew, maybe the LEFT should have used comedian, late night talk show host Jon Stewart as a political consultant after all. In the end, whatever the Democrat strategy was of calling Trump voters racists, lost badly. It was those same people who elected Barack Obama two times previously that the Democrat party decided to attack.
Former talk show host Jon Stewart slammed the “hypocrisy” of the left for supposedly rejecting stereotypes while painting Donald Trump voters as racist.
Mr. Stewart, former host of “The Daily Show,” sat down with CBS’ Charlie Rose in an interview aired Thursday to discuss his new book, “An Oral History” and weigh in on Donald Trump’s stunning Election Day victory.
“I thought Donald Trump disqualified himself at numerous points,” Mr. Stewart said. “But there is now this idea that anyone who voted for him has to be defined by the worst of his rhetoric.
“Like, there are guys in my neighborhood that I love, that I respect, that I think have incredible qualities who are not afraid of Mexicans, and not afraid of Muslims, and not afraid of blacks. They’re afraid of their insurance premiums,” he continued. “In the liberal community, you hate this idea of creating people as a monolith. Don’t look as Muslims as a monolith. They are the individuals and it would be ignorance. But everybody who voted for Trump is a monolith, is a racist. That hypocrisy is also real in our country.”
