I have said for years that the DNC has lost its way.
I was not talking about the growing number of socialists now populating its leadership.
I was not talking about the mega rich donors steering the ship, though they had a hand in the misdirection.
The problem with the DNC was they were once the party of the working class.
Before Carter in the late seventies, the Democratic Party was the party that stood for those no one else would stand for, or at least that was what they kept saying.
Now, they are the party of the wacky and insane. The uber rich run things and they do not care to break their promises.
Now, someone inside the DNC is calling for wholesale changes.
On Monday’s broadcast of the Fox Business Network’s “Mornings with Maria,” Representative Tim Ryan (D-OH), who is challenging House Minority Leader Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), stated, “I’m pulling the fire alarm, because the house is burning down, and we better get our act together or we’re going to cease being a national party.”
Ryan said, “[T]he average American, the average working-class American, flipped their middle finger to the establishment, the Democratic establishment, the Republican establishment, Wall Street. They think that everybody’s more concerned with the donor class than they the working class.”
As I reported last week, Ryan is running to oust Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi. He seems to be trying to get attention. And if he does take over for Nancy, there will be a bigger shake up than Trump in the White House.
The question is whether or not it is too late to save things?
