In the wake of the crushing defeats the Democrat Party suffered in the 2014 elections, the Democrat National Committee recently held a “lessons learned” meeting that is variously being described as a “post-mortem” or an “autopsy on the rotting corpse” of what’s left of the Party. It is being reported that the leadership has decided that they need to focus on the people they lost in recent elections, particularly white, middle-class Americans. However, I think it is more useful to look at what Democrats actually do rather than what they say they are going to do. The two are never the same, obviously. Such is the case with professional liars. So, I have taken a look at the Chairwoman’s Twitter feed and discovered that they are taking a 3-prong approach:
1 – Exalt the Legendary Dead White Heroes of the Party, like Ted Kennedy.
2 – Tell even bigger lies about Barack Obama’s
destructionimpact on the country.
3 – Project even more Democrat’s character flaws onto Republicans, no matter how retarded it gets.
You can tell this is going to work, right out of the box. Obviously, those white people who didn’t vote Democrat are racist woman-abusers, so appeal to them by focusing on white Democrat woman-abusers, like Teddy! That’ll bring them around! Tomorrow, we’ll focus on Joe Biden. That’ll work!
In the “Tell Bigger Lies” department, Debbie has 3 charts to lay upon us right away, and they’re not new, but they are real whoppers in the non-truth sense. Have a look.
Debunking this chart is beyond the scope of this rant, but assuming that the percentages shown are technically accurate, this chart tells two HUGE lies. First, it implies that “the deficit” is going down. It is not. The Public debt is now over $18 trillion, which is something like 102% of our GDP. That’s horrendously bad. The data for 2009 doesn’t look bad as a percentage, but it means we spent an EXTRA $2 TRILLION we didn’t have that year alone, and now in 2014, that measly 2.8% that looks so good means that HALF the money we’re spending every year – half a trillion dollars – is borrowed. It has never been that bad before.
The data in this jobs chart is likewise rendered meaningless because the data has been so heavily manipulated and redefined. As just one example, consider that full-time, good-paying jobs have been stagnant or decreased over this time. Most of the jobs that have expanded have been part-time jobs, and any full-time job increases are the result of a petroleum boom that has happened DESPITE the efforts of this administration. They still take credit for those, however.
This is a fun chart. Did you notice that wind producing countries, like the UK members, are not even listed on it? But nations who don’t bother with wind production, like China, and those who have given up on it because it’s not sustainable, like Spain, ARE shown? That’s pretty funny, Debbie!
This last tweet is actually my favorite, because it showcases the total lack of self-awareness that characterizes the modern Democrat, in general, and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz, in particular. What party, do you think, is infamous for demanding absolute internal discipline when it comes to NEVER criticizing one of their own, no matter how outrageously stupid and untruthful the statement? Hint: It’s not the Republicans. How about the efforts to impeach G.W. Bush by Congressional Democrats? Did any Democrats stand up to criticize Nancy Pelosi when she said “Bush is an incompetent leader. In fact, he’s not a leader…. He’s a person who has no judgment, no experience and no knowledge of the subjects that he has to decide upon.”? You stay classy, Debbie. And good luck in 2016.
