Democrats In Shock

Democrats in Shock

If a single picture is worth a thousand words, then the photo above says plenty.

The photo (from Getty Images) accompanies an article published by The Hill titled “Democrats sift through the debris“.

Here is an excerpt from the article.

Democrats on Wednesday morning began sorting through the wreckage of disastrous midterm elections in which losses eclipsed even their worst fears.

The scale of the defeats, taken together, was breathtaking: a Senate majority lost, over a dozen House seats swept away, and Democrats ousted from governors’ mansions across the country.

The drubbing is sure to spark a round of soul-searching as Democrats ponder whether President Obama is to blame — or whether something deeper has gone wrong in the party that could threaten its chances of retaining the White House in 2016.

“This is where the administration has to take a real honest look at its decision-making and its management. Between the Veterans Administration, the health care website…it was a lot of things for the last two years that kept feeding this concern that Democrats aren’t able to manage this government,” said one Democratic strategist who requested anonymity to speak freely.

IMHO, that part of the quote that I put in bold print also says plenty. Why would a Democratic strategist need to be anonymous in order to speak freely?

Anyway, it should be fun watching Democrats pointing fingers at each other and doing their Jake Blues impersonation.
