This year just keeps getting better and better.
House minority leader Nancy Pelosi downplayed problems with the Democratic Party, saying that the party’s values “unify us.”
“I don’t think that people want a new direction,” Pelosi said on CBS’ “Face the Nation” on Sunday. “Our values are supporting working families. What we want is a better connection of our message to working families.”
Pelosi’s appearance came a few days after she was re-elected by Democrats to serve another term as House minority leader, beating back a challenge from Rep. Tim Ryan, D-Ohio.
Host John Dickerson said that Democrats have been clobbered at every level since 2008, which Pelosi attributed to natural reactions to the party that holds the White House.
Albert Einstein said, “The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results.”
But the real problem for the Democrats is their current fight for control is between the far-left and the really loony-left. Back in 1988 they were blown-out with the super liberal Dukakis. That’s when the more moderate wing of the Democrat party (led by Bill Clinton and the DLC) began to move the party back to the center.
The Democrats don’t have a moderate wing any more. Remember the Blue Dogs? Thanks to Obama, Pelosi and Reid they have been purged from the party.
