The poor, poor progressive leftist Democrats, their march to Marxism under Barack Obama the past eight years has taken them off a cliff and now they’re all but admitting it, while still ignoring the 800-lb. gorillas in the room.
Democrat Congressman Emanuel Cleaver appeared on MSNBC Thursday to give his post-election assessment of the party and dropped this incoherent bomb:
“At the present time, I’ve got to say, we have no strategy and we have no plan,” Cleaver told MSNBC’s Bob Melvin. “But at least we have some proven leadership that can, you know, take us into what’s going to be a new era.”
On Wednesday, Nancy Pelosi was re-elected to lead House Democrats as their minority leader. Pelosi, 76, a former Speaker of the House, has been the leading Democrat for the past 13 years. Pelosi will be flanked by Steny Hoyer , 77, and James Clyburn , 76.
Pelosi defeated 43-year old Ohio Congressman Tim Ryan 134-63, Pelosi’s worse performance yet. Ryan argued that the Democrat Party was no longer a national party, but instead had drifted into a party of coastal elites that had forgotten the rest of the country.
In the U.S. Senate, New York Senator Charles Schumer , 66, will take over leadership from retiring Senate minority leader Harry Reid . Patty Murray , 66, will serve as assistant democratic leader. Murray was elected to the U.S. Senate the same year Bill Clinton won his first term in office — 1992.
Say What? Huh? How do you have “no strategy” and “no plan” but still have “proven leadership” when it’s the same fossilized swamp leaders who are leading the party?
