The Republican Party has had a tough go of its first six months in the Trump era.
With a failure to enact tax reform, to repeal Obamacare or build a border wall, one might predict that its amounting to a slow and painful death.
But, lo, the Democrats have come along as the political party dumpster fire that is making the Republican Party smell like roses.
The sheer incompetence and inability to capitalize on the historically low approval of their opponents either in rhetoric or in special elections is simply staggering.
And now, perhaps maybe, we have a glimpse of the reason why: they’re simply out of ideas.
Behold the proposed new motto for the DNC: “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.”
It’s a warmed over version of the Papa John’s slogan: “Better ingredients. Better pizza. Papa John’s”
Here’s more from Washington Examiner…
Democrats have been having a rough go of things lately. They lost the White House in November 2016 to a historically unpopular candidate, and they’ve lost every single special election since then.
It may come as an unpleasant surprise to the party’s supporters, then, to learn that the Democrats’ rumored message for the 2018 midterms is the following: “A Better Deal: Better Skills, Better Jobs, Better Wages.”
Sweet fancy Moses. That’s basically the Papa John’s Pizza slogan (“Better ingredients. Better pizza. Papa John’s”), but in reverse.
Amazingly enough, the Democrats’ message is reportedly “the result of months of polling and internal deliberations among the House Democratic caucus,” according to vox.com’s Jeff Stein.
Democrats control only 31 percent of state legislative bodies. They hold only 16 governors’ mansions, which is their worst showing since the year Congress passed legislation recognizing women’s right to vote.
The Democratic Party took severe beatings in the last two midterm election cycles, ceding both the House and the Senate to the GOP.
They also lost the white working class vote in 2016 to President Trump.
Democrats clearly have a messaging problem, as Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., himself conceded earlier this year.
In short, they have a huge problem.
They’re going to have to do better than a repurposed pizza slogan if they want to get back in the game.
