Dems ... Me Thinks Thou Tryest Too Hard To Appease Thyself

Common Sense Commentary: We've all witnessed the guilty trying too hard to appear innocent and succeed only in looking twice as guilty. The majority of Americans are very skeptical about trusting immigrant Muslims not to be terrorists. The Democrats will do almost anything to win elections ... lie, steal, cheat or yield to discrimination against innocence if necessary. So, considering the atmosphere in America today of a very large percentage of Americans being openly or secretly fearful of most Muslims, the Democrats react by seriously considering a Muslim Democrat Representative as their leader of the Democrat National Committee. But, am I surpirsed? Not in the least. Its just like them to glorify a major donor like Soros, vilify Republican good guys like Ted Cruz, Marko Rubio and Ben Carson,  and install a Muslim as their leader like Keith Ellison. Not to mention choosing  Presidential Candidates like Bill and Hillary Clinton and a Vice Presidential one like Tim Kaine. I, frankly, would rather have an honest, Loyal American Muslim as President than any of the three. Of course there is no such thing in the Democrat Party. Name me one honest Democrat politician, who is still living, and I'll buy your lunch. Well, maybe Jimmy Carter ... but he was a terrible President. RB

Dems Consider Muslim House Rep to Lead DNC

We will see soon enough if Democrats learned the right lessons from this election. For now, it appears that they are moving forward on two beliefs: One, that the Democratic Party has lost touch with middle America and the working class. Two, that Bernie Sanders is now the philosophical leader of the party, meaning that the answer to a Donald Trump victory is to move the party even further to the left.

These answers are reflected in the favorite to becoming the next Democratic National Committee chairman, Rep. Keith Ellison of Minnesota. Ellison is the first Muslim-American to be elected to Congress, and he is a Sanders acolyte through and through. After the election, Sanders quickly endorsed Ellison for the position.

On Monday, Ellison officially announced his bid for the role, coming out strong with a list of 40 endorsements from Democrats and labor chiefs.

“Democrats win when we harness the power of everyday people and fight for the issues they care about,” Ellison said. “It is not enough for Democrats to ask for voters’ support every two years. We must be with them through every lost paycheck, every tuition hike, and every time they are the victim of a hate crime. When voters know what Democrats stand for, we can improve the lives of all Americans.”

It’s annoying when Democrats try to tell Republicans which strategies to pursue, because the conflict of interest is so blindingly obvious. So we’ll keep that in mind as we review this DNC shakeup. It would be silly to criticize their options from a conservative viewpoint.

So, as we put on our Objectivity Caps, let’s see if this move makes sense.

On the plus side, the party clearly understands that they have to make some serious changes. The DNC leadership was thoroughly exposed this year, forcing both Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Donna Brazile into disgrace. Democrats cannot save their party by going back to the same establishment well that was rejected on election night.

On the other hand, Ellison feels like a needlessly defiant choice that smacks of identity politics. Were he a white Catholic who talked the same populist game, would he be the frontrunner? Or is the party eager to make some kind of “statement” by putting a black Muslim at the head of the DNC? And what kind of message does that send to the white working-class voters who went from Obama to Trump over the course of four short years?

Well, the clock’s already counting on the 2018 midterm elections. On that day, we’ll find out if Democrats made the right corrections or if they doomed their party to long-term irrelevance.

Pretty simple .... all they're thinking is that "the last time they put a black muslim" on the ballot....he won....twice.
Never mind that he single handedly doubled the debt and fired off enough executive orders to regulate us into a 3rd world country and decimated the military.
They will always be out of touch.....except for the touchy feely stuff they espouse.
