Something happened within the Democratic party during the Barack Obama presidency, to deal a serious blow to their self-esteem.

Even though they had an eminently qualified and experienced government leader ready to take over where Obama left off, Democrats were not CONFIDENT that Hillary Clinton could beat an inexperienced New York businessman, Donald Trump. This lack of self-confidence caused the administration to craft an "Insurance Policy" to ensure that Donald Trump would not win.
Ref: www.nationalreview.com...

After Donald Trump won the Presidency, Democrat self-esteem bottomed out to the point where they felt that RUSSIANS had somehow tricked them into staying home on election day, or to voting for a Republican without realizing it.
Ref: www.cbsnews.com...

Today, after President Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin, Democrats in the party and in the mainsteam media hit the big red PANIC! button. They are now consumed with fear and paranoia, that smart Russians are destined to control them once again. This time, with the November 2018 mid-term elections. To wit:


ST. PETERSBURG, Russia (AP) — The sponsors of the Russian "troll factory" that meddled in the 2016 US presidential campaign have launched a new American website ahead of the US midterm election in November.

Russian bots and trolls are deploying increasingly sophisticated, targeted tools.

Russian disruptors are waiting until the primaries are over in September and the races become more straightforward.

In the meantime, an array of bots, trolls, and sites like USAReally appear to be testing the waters.

It's disheartening to see what has traditionally been a strong political party, reduced to cowering in the corner and screaming for protection.

What should Democrat leaders like Tom Perez, Barack Obama, Chuck Schumer, Nancy Pelosi, Joe Biden, and Oprah Winfrey do to HELP DEMOCRATS pull together and regain their dignity?

They need to convince Hawaiian representative Tulsi Gabbard to be the new face of the Democrat party. Perhaps they are saving that card for later??

I think they should stop cheating in elections, start valuing the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and stop trying to use the Government to steal from productive members of society.

I know I would respect them more.

They hit the panic button the day after the election, and have been leaning on it since.
It is a shame they have not found something/someone to rally behind to provide a united front.

Just for sh**ts & giggles I would say "come clean." Hand over all the democrat criminals, hand over all the evidence and restart with a clean slate. Republicans might want to do the same. Neither republicans nor the democrats have any credibility left, which really doesn't impact Trump, because he's a centric nationalist. The nature of the separation of powers allows people the latitude to like what Trump is doing and at the same time hate the sitting democrats and republicans.

If it's a democrat running in the next elections, be afraid, don't waste your money, give your election funds to the homeless. If it's a republican, consider supporting the vets with your election funds or maybe entrepreneurs instead of pissing the money away.

Cheers - Dave

1. They need to take out the trash.
2. Read the US. Constitution.
3. Learn to deal with life.
4. Learn that crying and yelling doesn't get you heard. (Unless you're a baby. Who doesn't like babies? Oops! Sorry, Nevermind!)

If they had confidence and self worth? They'd be Republican or, at the least, a libertarian, or a real American. Or simply, just a man or woman. But they're none of the above.

I grew up in a family of Repubs, who had great respect for J.F.K. The modern Dems are not the "party" of J.F.K. But they sure like throwing his name around when it benefits them.
Just like the Constitution, when it benefits them.

Half the problem is? They want normal people to value them,. ... more than they apparently value themselves.

Which sane people, will never do.

I like almost everything about her, but she is entirely to moderate for the Democratic party now a days, she prefers to think for herself.

I cannot see them ever giving her a fair shot at the nomination.

They need to tone down the violent rhetoric and stop openly embracing the radical far-left. Every day they continue on this path, the more support they will bleed from their party.

Also, they actually need a platform to run on besides just anti-Trump hysteria. They have no plan for the economy, no plan for unemployment, even the stuff they preach about like free college and healthcare... no plan whatsoever.

Where we stand in America right now is the result of over 100 years of Progressive meddling, toying, tinkering around to get their "fundamental transformation" going.

They can't sell it in a debate (Let's try Socialism because it only kills millions of people but once you have it, your country collapses!) so they have been chipping away at installing it, bit by bit under the radar.

Let's face it... there really is no actual liberals anymore in the Democratic leadership. All progressives.

So let's do the nice thing and just let it die, so the Democratic party can possibly regroup and once again be the party for the working man/woman.

Not the party of stupid ideas that don't work.

Tulsi has enjoyed an impressive career thus far.

Why DNC Chair Tom Perez has chosen Alexandira Ocasio-Cortez as the "future" of the Democratic party is curious.

That would increase their self-esteem, but the leadership hasn't admitted that the party has these faults. That would be the first step, wouldn't it?

It is very curious that he has been chosen recently, but most likely that is flack. It is going to be Biden and hopefully Tulsi as VP.

They simply need to take the red pill and #WalkAway - the DNC are a lost cause, now indistinguishable from a racist hate group run by bigoted retards.

It's crazy how labels can so easily dehumanize people. "Democrat" and "Republican" have become dirty words depending on who you're talking to. People are so easily manipulated these days.

That's because right now, the party seems to be driven by fear. Three weeks ago, it was FEAR of what would happen to illegal immigrant children. Last week, it was FEAR that SCOTUS nominee Kavanaugh would make killing unborn babies illegal. And now, it's FEAR that Russians will negatively influence Democrat voters in November.
