© 2016 Jim Spence - The Democrats kind of like theme music. In 1992 they adopted a Fleetwood Mac song, “Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow.” They played that song over and over the night Bill Clinton beat George H.W. Bush. It might be worth adopting again. Consider some of the lyrics:
If you wake up and don't want to smile
If it takes just a little while
Open your eyes and look at the day
You'll see things in a different way
Don't stop thinking about tomorrow
Don't stop, it'll soon be here
Sometimes after a loss, it is a good idea to look in the mirror and blame bad execution and a really bad game plan. The Democrats had a really bad game plan that included taking Pennsylvania, Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, and Ohio for granted. Democrats thought these states were pretty much in the bag. Doh!
Instead of working hard, Hillary decided that she could take time off in August and September and simply argue that grown men should be allowed to pee or poop in little girl’s rooms all over the nation if they simply said they "felt" like a woman. She insisted that anyone who didn’t buy into her pee and poop viewpoints was a bigot. Hillary repeatedly suggested that the epidemic of cop killings by blacks, was actually a white person problem. She blamed the legacy of slavery and white people's blind spots.
Hillary repeatedly pretended that allowing tens of thousands of people to come to America from countries that routinely brainwash their children to hate America, was still somehow not dangerous, despite San Bernardino and Orlando.
The list of bad game planning goes on and on. Hillary insisted that America never differentiate between LEGAL immigration and illegal immigration. She doubled down that Obamacare was great despite the fact that everyone knows it is horrible. She was caught repeatedly lying about Benghazi and the body count in Libya and she was caught lying about sending classified emails from an unsecured server.
The Democrat’s dubious 2016 game plan actually started with the Clintons seizing control of the Democratic National Committee. In classic Clintonian fashion, they got the how to win delegate “rules” stacked in their favor. Many Democrats (all Sanders supporters) called this Clinton effort "cheating."
It is actually quite ironic that the Democrats are now whining about the winning the popular vote after they shafted Bernie Sanders every time he won the popular vote. Recall that in Democratic primary win after primary win, Bernie Sanders won the popular vote by huge margins.....but mysteriously Bernie Sanders never won the state delegate counts by huge margins.......thanks to the Clinton's advanced "rules" fix, Bernie Sanders always got fewer delegates than he earned…….while Hillary always got more delegates than she earned. This is how the Clintons roll...they hack things with political knives, and they thrive on planting fake news.
The Clinton scamming went on and on. Unfortunately for the Dems, her campaign chief John Podesta was such a dumb bozo he decided he could open an email from a dubious source without any risks. It was shortly thereafter, that we all learned the extent of the Clinton’s chicanery when his emails were copied and released to everyone in the Sanders campaign and in the media. The Podesta clicking blunder exposed the deep and insidious collusion of many members of the mainstream media with the Clinton campaign to the detriment of Bernie Sanders. Oh and yes, the Ruskies may well have been the senders of the bogus email that Podesta was too dumb to delete.
After the election results proved just how bad the execution and the game plan was, the Clintons initially did what they were supposed to do. They conceded and made a solemn pledge to accept the results and work with Trump. Gee, the pledge seems to have had a short shelf life.
Democrats have now “collectively” (pun intended) decided that they cannot get over the idea they are going to be almost completely OUT of power for at least two years. They also realize they lost their chance to poison the Supreme Court for decades. The loss of power is killing them.
The first excuse for the loss was the fact that racism carried the day. This didn’t stick because um…..Hillary is white and the same counties that voted for Trump voted for Obama. Next the Dems played the sexism charge. But that didn’t stick because Trump did well with women. The flimsy homophobe, islamophobe, etc. charges against Trump voters came next but also failed to stick as a narrative. The Dems also tried blaming FBI Director James Comey, but that didn’t stick either because everyone knew Comey let Hillary get away with murder.
It is now very clear that Democrats have organized and made a collective decision to run with the “blame the Russian hack,” angle. Democrats have proceeded with this line of bull by using “unnamed sources” at the CIA to suggest that Russians where behind the Podesta hacks that exposed Clinton corruption and benefited Trump "unfairly." It is kind of tough when you get caught cheating Bernie Sanders and it helps Trump.
Amazingly, the White House is refusing to allow their now politicized CIA, to brief Congressional CIA oversight committees on this absurd claim. Instead the White House has shamelessly gotten on board with the latest sham on the public without producing any evidence.
White House press secretary, a man named perfectly for his job (josh earnest), was telling reporters just yesterday that even Trump must have known the Russians were behind the hacks. This too must be particularly galling to Bernie Sanders since this must now go on the gigantic list of all the things Bernie does not know.
It might be time for a new Democrat theme song. Allow me to suggest the Eagles song off the Hell Freezes Over album. It is called, "Get Over It":
I turn on the tube and what do I see
A whole lotta people cryin' "Don't blame me"
They point their crooked little fingers at everybody else
Spend all their time feelin' sorry for themselves
Victim of this, victim of that
Your momma's too thin; your daddy's too fat
Get over it
Get over it
All this whinin' and cryin' and pitchin' a fit
Get over it, get over it
You don't want to work; you want to live like a king
But the big, bad world doesn't owe you a thing
Get over it
Get over it Democrats. You got your butts kicked for reasons too numerous to count.
