This story is pointing out the recent efforts by Democrats to somehow "rebrand" themselves.

Apparently the slaughter last November was too much to bear and bury.

I say this will only work on staunch supporters and won't convince the ones who are abandoning the Party in droves.

With candidates like Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders heading up the frontrunners for 2016 so far, I think Democrats need to consider a complete party name change. They also seem to keep on using the same old failures that got them into trouble last year.

But of course, Obama is the biggest problem.

A name change might actually fool more voters !!!

What are they doing?

Oh, gee: the Democrats are ‘rebranding.’ AGAIN



Let’s unpack the important parts of this bit about the Democratic Party’s latest rebranding effort. First off:


In the months since their party took another electoral beating and lost the Senate to Republicans, senior Democratic strategists have launched a major effort to rebrand the party, after concluding their message no longer inspires voters who turned out to elect President Obama but sat on their hands during midterm elections.

The rebranding project is being led by Rep. Steve Israel (D-N.Y.)…



OK, stop there. Steve Israel was head of the DCCC in the last election cycle: which is to say, he managed to lose about twice as many seats as many people privately estimated. It took real skill to do that, that cycle: the GOP was already enjoying a commanding lead in the House. So, yeah, perfect choice there (sayeth the partisan Republican hack). Moving along:

Wednesday’s meeting comes a few months after a group of polling and communications experts briefed House Democrats at a retreat in April. At that meeting, Pollock, along with strategists Anita Dunn, Doug Thornell, John Lapp and Jim Kessler…



What Else Can Go Wrong for Democrats?

Wouldn't exactly call it a slaughter when only 1/3 of Americans voted. Why you people consider that a victory, I will never know.

When more Americans go out and vote for the presidency it will be a different story.

Mid term elections tend to be a protest vote.The results of presidential elections don't follow on from mid term elections. I think the GOP has settled on legislative control instead of being in the White House. The Democrats took this pragmatic approach in the 1980's under Reagan watch.

Like a Jeb Bush landslide?

All he needs to do is pick an Hispanic politician as his VP and away we go.

A "didn't vote" is a failure.

Why do they need a name change? Look at how many people have thrown their hats in the ring for the Dems compared to the number for the Repubs if any party is having a crisis it's the Repubs. Oh yeah that is what happens when you have two parties running under the same name.

With the GOP pushing the Trade-Bill-That-Cannot-Be-Read-Or-Named, I'm not too happy with the GOP right now.

Not that I'm giddy over the DNC, either.

And I'm too tired to become Canadian.

I don't have anything to worry about because I'm not stupid enough to believe the people actually vote in the President. The Electoral College votes in the President well that is except when the Supreme Court isn't giving the Repubs the win.

Paul and Bernie are the same, just giving us the illusion of "difference".

Apologies.

Feeling quite discouraged right now.
