I find several things funny about this past week’s election. I think it’s absolutely hilarious to watch a few hundred people in Portland, Chicago, New York, Los Angeles (basically liberal bastions) march in protest of the election results. Like that is really going to solve anything? It is a very stark display of what is wrong with liberalism. You do something that won’t change anything, just so you can say that you did something and you feel better about it. It probably would have been better looking at the numbers a little more than we all could last Tuesday night, if these same folks would have gotten off their couches and actually voted. Clinton didn’t do very well with black voters…they stayed home. Clinton didn’t do well with the “Millennials”. ..they stayed home.
Clinton didn’t even do well with white women…the very ones that were going to help her smash the glass ceiling at the Jacob Javitz Center in New York Tuesday night. She lost that demographic to Trump as well. And the Democrats are in full panic mode because they can’t understand how the country wouldn’t accept Clinton as their president! Are you kidding me?
So, when the main-stream-media is going around doing interviews with Dems asking them why they lost, it wasn’t because Hillary Clinton was a liar and untrustworthy, and tied up in several scandals that did absolutely nothing for the country but only for herself and her hubby…nope. They said it was because they felt she was too mainstream and wasn’t liberal ENOUGH?! Really? They really think an Elizabeth Warren could have done any better? Well, that’s good news on one front…because the election on Tuesday night, though close, was a repudiation not only of the messenger (Clinton), but also the message (liberalism). Neither worked. Both were extremely flawed. And while the main-stream-media was busy looking for someone to blame, they could also have looked at the current occupant of the White House. For it was Barack Obama’s total failure over the last eight years to lead this country anywhere but the porcelain bowl that was also a big part of the Democrats’ loss.
If this were just the candidate, not the message, you wouldn’t have seen the GOP hold on to the Senate. You would have seen the Dems take the Senate and cut deep into the GOP lead in the House. Neither of those things happened. And they didn’t happen because it wasn’t just the messenger. It was also the message.
So the Democrats will be looking at themselves long and hard, just as the Republicans have done for the past eight years to see why they couldn’t win a presidential election that they felt was being handed to them on a silver platter. After all, didn’t Hillary say she WANTED to run against Trump? Be careful what you wish for…you just might get it!
Carry on world…you’re dismissed!
