|Left-wing Loonies like Sen. Elizabeth Warren are taking heat from centrist democrats |
Little Harry Reid railing against the Koch Brothers, phony OBamaCare numbers, media drum beating and fake job numbers aren't going to overcome the public perceptions of a government gone awry; a bad economy, Obama fatigue, and scandal and lies of left- wing loonies that dominate the democrat party and government. With a shellacing in the mid-terms looming, dems are in disarray and blaming each other for the noose they placed their own necks in:
"Bracing for a rough midterm-election outcome, Democrats aren't waiting until Election Day to start blaming one another for the party's problems. Anticipating the possibility that Republicans will flip the Senate, the finger-pointing game is already underway between the party's warring factions.
Earlier this month, Daily Kos founder Markos Moulitsas argued liberals had successfully purged so-called squishy moderates from the Democratic Party's ranks—even if those same lawmakers had helped the party retain conservative-leaning Senate and House seats. From the middle, the centrist Democratic think tank Third Way has become more outspoken in criticizing progressive leaders, including Sen. Elizabeth Warren and New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio, for advocating an agenda that will compromise the party's ability to attract moderate voters.
The public spats between outside groups are nothing compared with the private finger-pointing over who could be responsible if Republicans ride a political wave this year.
In Third Way cofounder Matt Bennett's telling, it wasn't a lack of populism that caused the party's problems. It was an incessant focus on class-war rhetoric in 2013 that repelled some voters.
"Democrats lost touch with the middle class," he said. "We engaged in arguments that have intellectual but not emotional resonance. "
Frankly, it's news to me that there are any 'centrist' still in the democrat party.
