Are Democrats in Denial?

Democrats released an official autopsy of their defeat in the 2014 midterm elections over the weekend. It's a document that reveals a party largely unshaken by its stinging defeat in the midterm elections. Just nine pages long, if you include the front and back covers, the report from the Democratic National Committee is not a particularly detailed dissection of the November drubbing. Its conclusions boil down to a familiar refrain from losing parties: The problem is the packaging, not what's inside the box.

It is strongly believed that the Democratic Party is loosely understood as a long list of policy statements and not as people with a common set of core values (fairness, equality, opportunity). This lack of cohesive narrative impedes the party’s ability to develop and maintain a lifelong dialogue and partnership with voters.

Perhaps Democrats are just going through the motions. In releasing the preliminary report on Saturday, DNC Chairwoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz warned that Democrats were in for some "tough love." But aside from twice labeling the last two midterm election results "devastating," the autopsy didn't find much fault. That may be a reflection of the party's confidence heading into 2016. Democrats have had much more success turning out their voters in presidential years. They have, in Clinton, a presidential nominee-in-waiting, and many remain convinced that demographic trends favor Democrats over the long term in key states. But as John Judis has detailed in National Journal, that last assumption may already be outdated. And even if Democrats keep the White House, the last four years have shown how a president's power is diminished without a majority in Congress. Maybe the lengthier "action plan" that the DNC is promising by May will have more answers. In the meantime, though, the search for a Democratic identity in the post-Obama age continues.

Typical Democratic nonsense, essentially calling the public stupid (when they don't vote for them, when they want to takeover the American health care system, etc.) Even Obozo kept saying, when poll after poll showed the public consistently and significantly against Obamacare, that "we are just not doing a good job getting our message across" or something to that effect - insinuating that we were just too stupid to know what is good for us.

It is simply amazing that people still vote for these Democratic elitists that continually insult them.
