I’m beginning to suspect that rather than surfing to victory atop a Blue Wave, the Democrats are going to sink to the bottom of the sea thanks to their own personal millstone Hillary Clinton.
So long as the disgruntled former Democratic Presidential nominee insists on regurgitating her excuses for losing, she is a liability to them. Especially when you consider the fact that her attacks often land directly on the Democrats.
Like, for example, yesterday.
Hillary appeared at the “Shared Values Leadership Summit” and complained that being a capitalist hurt her in 2016 because so many Democrats are socialists.
First of all, I call bull.
Hillary isn’t a free market capitalist.
But that’s beside the point.
This is a midterm election year. And the Democrats need to regain voting blocs they lost over the last eight years. So having Hillary the Millstone complain that too many Democrats are socialists is gonna hurt’em.
If I were, say, Claire McCaskill trying to get reelected in solidly red Missouri, the last thing I want voters to hear is that so many Democrats are socialists.
Here’s the problem.
In order to achieve this so-called “Blue Wave” the Democrats need to A) keep the voters they have and B) expand their voting base by appealing to the voters they lost.
Well, as I already mentioned the other day, the Democrats are having a tough time with Option A. They’re bleeding the always reliable Millennials.
And Option B ain’t gonna happen if Hillary keeps running her mouth.
The folks who abandoned the Democrats over the last ten years did so because the Democrat Party became far too Left wing.
So Hillary out there saying that the Democrat Party is still far too Left wing isn’t going to do the DNC or Nancy Pelosi any favors.
Now, it won’t hurt them in solidly blue districts. But in order to “flip the House,” they need to appeal to voters that aren’t socialists.
And then along comes Hillary Millstone Clinton letting America know that too many Democrats are socialists.
But the truth is Hillary became a millstone for the Democrats as soon it was clear that she wasn’t going to shut the hell up about losing.
And every subsequent attack on Americans who didn’t vote for her is one more reason for those voters not to return to the Democrat Party.
Now, the Democrats and the news media are mocking the RNC for making Hillary a focus in their Midterm election strategy.
Of course they’re mocking it.
But not because it’s ridiculous. They’re mocking it because they know it will be effective.
Hillary’s ubiquity is a drag on the Democrats in 2018.
And tying them to Hillary Millstone Clinton is a genius move as far as I’m concerned.
Every time she opens her mouth she drags the Democrats further and further down. As a result, instead of riding that blue wave, they’re drowning beneath it.
