It’s an Upchuck morning, Scissorheads, as he reports the conventional wisdom that the Dems have a branding problem, as proven by the Republican win in the Virginia gubernatorial election:
“Voters couldn’t name anything that Democrats had done, except a few who said we passed the infrastructure bill. That bill didn’t overcome their opinions that we have spent the last year infighting and careening from crisis to crisis,” the memo said…
And I would add that if citizens/voters don’t know what Congress has done for them, the problem lies with our media. Who’s job is it to inform the public, hmmm? And who is playing hall monitor at the middle school and focusing on the latest hot gossip? But I digress:
But maybe most important of all has been the Democratic branding of the climate/pre-K/child care bill as being “transformational” — when so many Americans have struggled with the challenges of an ongoing two-year pandemic.
The Democratic message over the last few months has been: These are the progressive priorities we’ve wanted for years.
Instead of: We know what you’re feeling right now, and here’s how to fix it.
Now, bear in mind, we’ve been told by Upchuck and the like, that we are smartypants LibTards looking down on the yokels of Real America and telling them how stupid they are and that we know what’s best for them. So Upchuck tells us that we need to, uh, tell them that we know how to fix whatever is wrong?
Democrats seem like they finally have gotten the memo, at least rhetorically.
In his remarks on prescription drugs yesterday, Biden dumped the “transformational” talk and discussed how lower drug prices would benefit Americans.
“I think it’s safe to say that all of us — all of us — whatever our background, our age, where we live — we can agree that prescription drugs are outrageously expensive in this country,” the president said.
President Handsome Joe Biden has been around the block at least once, and I can assure you that he understands the importance of benefit statements. I don’t think that this is anything new, let alone because he’s finally gotten the memo.
