Actually, if the Dems don’t “grow up”, they are going to give us 8 years of Trump. The reactionary tactics are showing their true stripes, and conservatives & independents are liking Trump better than their team.
New Hampshire Democratic Party Chair Raymond Buckley, a candidate for the DNC chair, told his fellow Democrats to “grow up” at a forum in Baltimore. Buckley noted that the Democrats did not concentrate on the issues that actually concern regular Americans. From The Daily Mail:
Buckley said the Democrats ‘did not offer a positive message to anyone I … am related to.’
‘We did not offer a message to my neighbors, we did not offer a message to the people in Indiana or Ohio or Pennsylvania or Kentucky,’ he added, pointing to the states nominee Hillary Clinton lost throughout the Rust Belt.
What the Democrats did do, Buckley stated, is say ‘how offensive.’
‘Grow up,’ he shouted.
‘That is not reality for most of America,’ he said.
He appeared on Fox & Friends on Monday:
“We’ve had 11 or 12 debates already, and clearly we’ve been talking about a number of issues we tripped up on,” Buckley said. “But we really never got to the point that our nominee’s campaign really did not address the economic issues that so many Americans are still suffering under.”
It’s been said the Democrats have become a coastal party, with strongholds in California, New York and Massachusetts. However, the message has failed to spread to middle America.
“I think it is important that whoever is our nominee in 2020 that they listen to our grassroots and less to their high-paid consultants,” Buckley said. “I really think that is a major problem within our party, both at the DNC and with our candidates up and down the ticket.”
