"You’re getting push back so you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable"

Tammy Bruce, lesbian and former Democrat, looks into the future and sees the Dems employing the most hardcore of strategies. Why so early, 15 months out? Why play their ugliest, most vile card, at this early stage? 

 

Desperation me thinks....but what do they do once this fails, as polling seems to indicate that it is? What can they pull out of the dirty tricks book then? 

 

As reported by Glenn Reynolds on InstaPundit:

 

TAMMY BRUCE:  Trump vs. AOC and ‘the squad’ – What bare-knuckle fight means for 2020. 

Trump’s comments may be blunt, but they’re not “racist,” an accusation now thrown about by the Democrats as casually as saying hello. That, in fact, is the cold, hard strategy.

 

After Ocasio-Cortez publicly implied Pelosi was a racist, Rep. William Lacy Clay, a Democrat from Missouri, added to the mounting criticism of the four lawmakers. Speaking to Fox News, he characterized Ms. Ocasio-Cortez as ignorant, immature and insensitive, and suggested the four will hurt the Democrats in 2020.

 

As Clay noted in his comments about Ocasio-Cortez accusing Pelosi of racism: “You’re getting push back so you resort to using the race card? Unbelievable.”

 

Unfortunately, it’s all too believable when smearing your opponents is the only card you have.

 

Still, after years of lies about his character and intention, USA Today reported the president’s approval rating among Republicans is now at 93 percent and the GOP’s approval rating among Americans is at 51 percent.

Trump is shoring up his base while at the same time turning Democrats against one another.

 

I’m not getting cocky, but this tumultuous week has nevertheless been a good week.

Frank?

Yeah, our resident political consultant who thinks he know stuff, but knows nothing. 

 

Remember what I said about that poll being leaked by the DE against the Squad. Bruce, a Davy political,operative, saw the same thing. And, as I and other have argued, she saw Trump destroying that plan.  

 

More from Bruce in her article at Fox News:

 

The poll being leaked to the media was likely Pelosi’s hardball against the squad, embarrassing them publicly but also sending a message to every other Democrat that this image of “the squad’s” influence is not only nonexistent, but these individuals and their message are dangerous to any hope they have at winning the White House in 2020.

 

Moreover, a shadow is now emerging that they could also lose control of the House of Representatives.

 

I’m sure Pelosi at the end of this was pouring a glass of champagne and having a few laughs with her supporters about her skill at managing a dangerous and unwieldy situation.

 

Enter Donald Trump.

 

The president, after Pelosi’s frantic efforts to remove these women from the front of cameras, took an action that put them right back in front of the media, while forcing Democratic leadership to defend and embrace the very same women they had gone public to marginalize.

 

In response to a series of tweets critical of the congresswomen, Trump is being accused of being “a racist,” (falsely, of course). In his criticism he names no one and makes no mention of race. After all, he’s not in control of the ethnicity or the race of any member of Congress, and he’s not going to hold anyone to a different standard based on their identity. But that’s one of his crimes as well.

For those of us who are former political organizers, what the president was doing was clear: Provoking the Democrats into again embracing and defending women whom swing voters find toxic due to their agenda and attitudes. And they’re doing just that.

 

In his hallmark transparency, Trump himself noted just this, tweeting: “The Dems were trying to distance themselves from the four ‘progressives,’ but now they are forced to embrace them. That means they are endorsing Socialism, hate of Israel and the USA! Not good for the Democrats!”

 

David Axelrod also knows what the president is doing and it upsets him to no end: “With his deliberate, racist outburst, @realDonaldTrump wants to raise the profile of his targets, drive Dems to defend them and make them emblematic of the entire party. It’s a cold, hard strategy.”

But Fwank knows more than Bruce, Axelrod, Reynolds, Simon and a myriad of other astute observers who have argued this since the weekend.

It’s amazing - Trump was handed a gift in 2016 when Hillary called his supporters “deplorables”.  Now this current group is basically calling all his supporters “racists”.  Nothing like having your opposition rally your troops for you.

Dude has a point- Frank never responded to this post so why 6 different posts about him?  

The whole point of most PG posts is simply to get Frank engaged. Without Frank, most posts aren't entertaining or worth participating in, particularly when Dude shows up as a poor substitute.
