The Democratic Party has become an utter train wreck since Tuesday night. Now we have this from Diane Feinstein:
Feinstein said it is clear that attempts to pass sweeping legislation to address climate change by capping carbon emissions cannot pass this Congress.
So if Democrats are just going to cave in on any important legislation now, then why even vote for them anymore? No matter what happens they aren’t going to get a super majority again. You aren’t going to get states like Indiana, Arkansas or Nebraska to vote for some progressive candidate. So why even bother?
This again all boils down to message control and the fact that the inside the beltway crowd has no idea what real Americans are thinking. Do real Americans really know that the Republicans have been filibustering everything? No, because Harry Reid doesn’t make them filibuster. Instead he just caves.
So when the Democrats end up losing a tidal wave of seats this fall, and by all indicators that is exactly what will happen, then they will have no one to blame but themselves. It’s time to force out the old mindset of the Democratic Party and inject a new leadership that really knows how to lead. If the Democrats don’t do that then their new found majority is going to be very short lived.
