This is sure to appeal to the Democrat base

This is sure to appeal to the Democrat base

There is a palpable lack of voter enthusiasm among the Democrat base. It’s hard not to notice that.

I mean, when Gallup finds that 52% of Democrats are unsatisfied with their nominee and wish someone else was leading the ticket, that is going to tamp down enthusiasm among the Democrat base.

You’d think the DNC would be gearing their convention toward those dissatisfied Democrat voters in hopes of firing them up.

But no, not the DNC.

Instead, they are trotting out a conga line of has-been RINO Republicans like John Kasich, Colin Powell, Christine Todd Whitman and Cindy McCain.  For crying out loud, those people couldn’t fire up Republican voters.

Does the DNC actually think they will light a fire under the dissatisfied Democrat base?

Donald Trump holds a 96% approval rating among Republican voters.  But for some reason, the DNC is putting more time and effort into winning over the 4% who don’t approve than they are narrowing the enthusiasm gap among their own voters.

Is there a single actual Republican outside of the DC/NYC bubble who sees John Kasich at the Democrat Convention and thinks, “You know, I was on the Trump Train, but then I saw John Kasich standing at a crossroads and now I’m on the Biden Jalopy!”

More to the point, is there any unenthusiastic Democrat voter still struggling to find a single reason to get fired up for Joe who saw Colin Powell last night and thought, “Boy, I just wasn’t excited about Biden. Then I saw the guy who lied about Iraq’s weapons of mass destruction and got us into a needless war where thousands of Americans died, and now I can’t WAIT to vote for Joe!!!”

I think it’s more likely that a large segment of the Democrat base was furious that Colin Powell got so much time to speak when their Queen AOC only got sixty seconds.

Is it that the DNC can’t see the enthusiasm gap as wide as the Grand Canyon existing within their own base?

Or is it, as I suggested yesterday, that the Democrat Party truly believes that Trump Hatred alone will be enough to drag Joe into the White House?

Now, to be fair, not all Democrats are lacking in enthusiasm.  Many of them are excited about voting for Trump in November.

There are even die-hard Liberals who, though maybe not excited, are still walking away from the Democrat Party in favor of Trump – including well-known independent journalist Tim Pool.

I doubt watching Colin Powell or Cindy McCain is going to entice Tim Pool back into the fold.

What is motivating the Democrat Party to make such idiotic decisions?

It’s insanely stupid, but I think the DNC has fallen for the Lincoln Project grift so completely they actually think the key to Joe Biden winning is ignoring the Democrat base and targeting the four percent of Republicans who don’t support Trump.

Sure, the Lincoln Project gets a lot of attention on Twitter.  But Twitter is not a barometer of what’s happening in real life.  The Democrats making convention choices based on Twitter trends and retweets, will do absolutely nothing to appeal to the Democrat base out here on Planet Earth.

Retweets don’t translate into actual human people going to the polls and voting for their guy.

What is the Democrat ground game?  The Trump campaign has actual bodies knocking on doors, registering voters, making phone calls.

The Democrat Party has Twitter and Cindy McCain.

Does the DNC think that somehow Joe Biden, the man 52% of Democrats wish wasn’t their nominee, will singlehandedly close that enthusiasm gap just by giving his acceptance speech tonight?

If they do, that’s expecting an awful lot from a guy who can’t make it through a carefully-managed TV interview without shoving his foot into his mouth.

Meanwhile, Democrat-led cities are devolving into Beirut, Marxist Leftists are pushing the Democrat Party ever further to the Left, and Democrat-run states are treating COVID as an opportunity to get their Tyranny on.

But don’t worry, nervous Democrat voters. The Democratic National Convention scored Cindy McCain!

    This DNC has been a complete cringe fest. The media is circling the wagons and pretending that this was a good idea. Biden has less enthusiasm than Hillary

    Michelle “the Mooch” O’Bama at the pretend DNC – a lying, nasty fool. Remember her saying that “For the first time in my adult lifetime, I’m really proud of my country … ” Her “adult lifetime” began in 1992. She said that in 2008. So for 16 years she was, what? Ashamed of America? Perfect candidate for a first lady.
    Oh, she’s also a poo poo head.

    I don’t know a single person who has a Twitter account. I would guess most hard working Americans don’t have time for idiotic ramblings of entitled twats.

    Dianny, I don’t like to count this one in the win column until the votes are counted and Biden and Harris have given their concession speeches, but Hillary was projected to win at 95%. Biden’s 52% and falling?

    There were a lot of people who didn’t know how DJT would behave as president—what his policies would be like. Many people voted against him because they didn’t like his character. I believe this time around they will vote FOR him for his policies rather than AGAINST him for his character.

      So true. I was a very reluctant voter for Trump in 2016 because I knew nothing about him except his out-sized personality that didn’t appeal to me. He has proven over the last almost 4 years that he is a competent, strong, common-sense leader, and he LOVES America. That both Parties HATE him is proof that he is doing exactly what is best for the American people. I still don’t want to be his “pal” but I will vote for him with enthusiasm in November. In the Chicago tradition, I hope to vote ‘early and often’.
      The stupid Democrats made a pact with the Devil when they turned things over to the Leftist maniacs. I wish them the worst, and with this ticket that’s what they have.

    Maybe they are doing something different. They know they cannot really win. However, they will spread so much hate and confusion and lies that when Trump wins they can “claim” that Trump stole the election or that “EVIL” won. Then they (Pelosi, Waters, Schiff, Nadler, etc.) and their Antifa and BLM stormtroopers will rain down so much hell on Trump and those who supported him that it will be difficult if not impossible for Trump to fulfill his obligations. The fact that this will tear the country apart won’t matter to the Democrats (politicians, media hacks, entertainers, etc.).

    Lock and load. If it comes to that, and it could, the Freaks will have no chance. The LOVE of America is much stronger than the HATRED of America. Leftists are Ugly, Insane, Lying Cowards. Our President could not have better ‘opponents’. The desire for NORMAL is growing by the hour. Leftists are programmed on self-destruct. They can’t help themselves. They are NUTS!

    Well, according to John “Hound Dog” Kerry, Trump’s foreign policy is a disaster and it was the Obama administration that took care of ISIS. And just like that, Trump’s press conference today put a few more nails in the Iran deal.

    There isn’t one Democrat that I could honestly say is a good guy/gal. Not one. And as far as Cindy McCain, Colin Powell, John “The Mailman’s Son” Kasich, et al. are concerned, they don’t even amount to a hill of beans. Cindy McCain, in particular, is one reprobate.
