Lesson Learned? Democrats Look To Speed Up Their Agenda Post Election Blowout

Both parties refuse to learn the lesson of elections. Republicans always fail to understand that fighting back works. That politics is not a nice business. You have to take it to Democrats. Firing a broadside then going back into get along go alone squishiness doesn’t work. Democrats never learn from election losses. Sure, you might have some, such as James Carville, who understand pivoting and moving on, but, most just make Excuses, usually along the lines of Republicans cheated, the voters are racist/sexist/Islamophobe/etc, those darned white women, we just need to reframe and rename. What did they learn Tuesday night?

Well, unless you have a subscription, you aren’t reading that one, so, over to the NY Times

Democrats, Stung by Losses, Press Forward on Biden Agenda

Smarting from an off-year electoral rebuke, congressional Democrats pushed forward on Wednesday toward House votes as soon as Thursday on nearly $3 trillion worth of social policy, infrastructure and climate change programs — but with a deep new worry: Would a legislative victory help or hurt their bruised political standing?

The day after a defeat in the Virginia governor’s race and an unexpectedly close race in the Democratic stronghold of New Jersey, the Democrats in Congress toiled to keep recriminations to a minimum. But centrists grumbled that the party’s left flank had held back final passage of what they considered the most popular part of the agenda, a bipartisan $1 trillion infrastructure bill, while liberals blamed poor campaigns and ineffectual candidates.

“Candidates matter,” added Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York, one of the Democrats who blockaded the infrastructure measure. But virtually all Democrats came away from the sweeping defeats in Virginia and a narrow escape for New Jersey’s Democratic governor, Philip D. Murphy, agreeing that the imperative now was to pass both bills as quickly as possible to prove their party could govern.

No, sorry, what they understand is that their agenda becomes less popular the more people know, and that they have a limited time to get it done before the 2022 mid-terms, after which they will most likely lose the House, the Senate, or both, and they know it would be virtually impossible to get rid of this Progressive (nice Fascism) insanity. First, because Joe will just veto, and, second, getting rid of it even with a win in 2024 for the White House by a Republican could make it difficult. How’d it work out getting rid of Obamacare, especially once it was established? That’s the chance, and the calculation, Democrats will make.

Hanging over the endeavor was a deep sense of dread among Democrats — reinforced by the results on Tuesday — that their prospects for keeping control of Congress in the midterm elections next year were dwindling by the day, amid President Biden’s sagging approval rating and widespread discontent with the direction of the country. Puffed up by his party’s successes, Representative Kevin McCarthy of California, the House Republican leader, predicted that Democrats would lose more than 60 seats next year.

One would think if there is deep dissatisfaction they’d pivot, do different things which are popular. That’s what Clinton would have done. These days, Democrats do not care, they’ll just try and force this on Americans. Because they do think you are stupid and need to be told what to do and forced to do it.

    The people who threw rocks at Ruby Bridges for daring to attend a “white” school are now upset their grandchildren may learn they threw rocks at Ruby Bridges for daring to attend a “white” school.

      Guess the grandchildren can’t look up Ruby Bridges on the internet.

      ..and Elwood demonstrates, again, that he doesn’t understand the issue.

      Can everyone see my “shocked!” face? Maybe if I slide over a bit…

    That treasury isn’t going to loot itself. Now that Democrats have learned there is a word that comes after “Billions”, they can’t be satisfied with a few book deals and insider stock market trades again.

  4. Jl says:

    Their new tactic will be to shout “racist!” louder….

    They think eveyone is like Elwood.
