DID IT never occur to Senator Chuck Schumer and Representative Nancy Pelosi to introduce a new slogan by letting new faces make the announcement?
By “new faces,” I mean faces people are interested in seeing, hearing or meeting, preferably a New Generation of Democrat. They exist, right?
From the Washington Post over the weekend.
“When you lose to somebody who has 40 percent popularity, you don’t blame other things — Comey, Russia — you blame yourself,” Senate Minority Leader Charles E. Schumer (D-N.Y.) said in an interview previewing the new plan. “So what did we do wrong? People didn’t know what we stood for, just that we were against Trump. And still believe that.”
House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) agreed, explaining in a separate interview that the new focus “is not a course correction, but it’s a presentation correction.”
“People didn’t know what we stood for…”
“…it’s a presentation correction…”
You can bet quite a few Clinton supporters are taking these statements very personally, some of which showed up on social media.
No Democrat can afford to care.
Anti-Trumpism won’t carry Democrats to victory in 2018, should Trump survive the next couple of years without self-combusting.
A slogan sold by trying to conjure up the great Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal, while falling far short of outlining the dire need for the move won’t either.
It’s not that hard to do “better” than Trump.
Or is it?
