Neglect about “Construct Again Higher.” Depart that and all different coverage proposals for an additional day.
If Democrats need to achieve success within the upcoming midterm elections (maintain the Home and acquire seats within the Senate) they should emphasize one factor and one factor solely … they’re the celebration that’s standing up for our system of presidency and the Structure. Heck, you possibly can say they’re the one main political celebration preventing to guard democracy itself.
In a decision formally censuring GOP Reps. Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger, the Republican Nationwide Committee final week described the occasions surrounding the January 6, 2021 revolt as “respectable political discourse.”
How unbelievable and messed-up is that! The official arm of the Republican Get together has made a selection. They’re siding with the traitors and insurrectionists who stormed the Capitol and tried to cease the electoral faculty certification of Joe Biden because the newly-elected president. They’ve gone all-in with Donald Trump and his Massive Lie.
What a tremendous reward for the Democratic Get together!
Going into the midterms, Democrats must preserve their message easy as a result of the selection actually is easy. You’re both on the facet of democracy and the Structure or you’re on the facet of traitors and insurrectionists. You’re both on the facet of a celebration that believes within the rule of legislation or on the facet of 1 that believes in taking the legislation into its personal arms.
That sensible outdated evil owl, Mitch McConnell, is aware of what the RNC did is just not good for his celebration. He got here out in the present day saying what occurred on January 6, 2021 on the U.S. Capitol, was “a violent revolt.” McConnell mentioned the committee shouldn’t be “singling out members of our celebration who might have totally different views from the bulk,” including that it’s “not the job of the RNC.”
Sorry, Mitch, but it surely’s a bit too late for harm management. The mattress’s been made. The Republican Nationwide Committee confirmed its hand. It won’t retract the assertion as it could not be the Trumpian factor to do.
Name me a foolish optimist however I’ve to consider that if given a selection between a real functioning democracy or a Turkish-style “democracy”, most Individuals, together with independents and average Republicans (sure there are nonetheless some) will select the previous.
The Republicans have handed the Democrats a hammer and they should pound the Get together of Trump over the pinnacle with it day by day.
To paraphrase a sensible outdated political strategist … “It’s the democracy, silly”
