There was Nana's six hour soliloquy on the floor of the House telling us we should thank those who break our immigration laws. A cadre of Democrats have called tax cuts, bonuses and wage increases "peanuts" belittling the impact they will actually have for so many Americans. Then of course there was the Schumer shut down solely for the purpose of getting a "clean" DACA bill. The party is telling us in so many ways what their priorities really are.
Perhaps there is no better visual demonstration of what Democrats really think than their petulant behavior at the State of the Union address. In their determination to "oppose" President Trump's agenda:
They made childish faces
Looked down their noses
And sat on their derrieres
Mind you they did this while the President was talking about the families of those killed by MS-13 gang members and after the introduction of a North Korean defector that defied all odds in finding his freedom. As well as just about every other point the President made. And finally someone in the GOP decided to make hay with it rather that being cordial.
This makes me happy. Very happy in fact. No matter what you think of President Trump personally, the Democrats are sitting for things many Americans will benefit from and value. This line of marketing is crucial going into 2018, because while Trump may be a caustic figure to many, they will be voting for their Representatives and Senators.
Some may need a push to get to the polls and vote for the Republican party in the midterm elections. How can you look at this and and not think that the party applauding putting more money in your pocket, cheering record lows in unemployment among minorities and caring about those who defend our shores might not be such a bad thing after all? Or at least figure out if you want these trends to continue then the better bet is to keep GOP majorities.
Despite not voting for either major party candidate in the 2016, I am not now or will I ever be under the illusion that replacing my GOP House member or Senator with a Democrat is a good idea. I am not a Socialist and even leading Democrats can't tell you what the difference between their party and socialism is anymore. Further, Democrats aren't for anything. Except killing the unborn, illegal immigration and free everything. They've told me so.
Without clear talking points, highlighting how far removed Democrats are from mainstream America, rancor over the 2016 election within the party might erode our majorities. Democrats need to be positioned as the party of the extreme Left that they have become. More ads like this please, that shine a light on exactly what the Democrats think of the rest of us.
