Interesting YouTube Clips about how Democrats will Screw Up in 2018

Here are two interesting and recent clips from the Jimmy Dore Show channel on YT. While each is about a seemingly different topic, both address the issue of how Democrats are likely to screw up and lose the 2018 election- inspite of the golden opportunity provided to them by Trump’s record unpopularity. Of course, this has been the case for at least a couple of decades. Also, check out some of the other recent video clips on his channel.

The first clip is about how disenchantment with Obama, in the black community, is now too strong for democrats to confidently expect the kind of voter turnout they enjoyed among that electoral group in 2008 and 2012. As some of you might remember, I wrote a three-part series on that very topic a few months ago. While democrats could certainly motivate potential voters by promising and implementing populist policies to help their most loyal voters, you can bet that they won’t do anything like that.

The second clip is part of a long interview with Glenn Greenwald, in which he talks about how establishment democrat obsession with “Russia” and “Putin” has attained the level of a sacrament within that party. He also talks about how this establishment obsession is blocking their ability to talk about issues which most voters actually care about, thus alienating them even further. As many of you might also recall, I have written more than a few posts on this topic (link 1, link 2, link 3 and link 4).

    I doubt that any white candidate will get the level of black support that Obama did in 2008 and 2012.

    I think MSNBC, CNN, NYT, Washington Post and some other main stream media outlets are obsessed with Russia and Stormy Daniels, but Democratic candidates are so far not really focusing on that issue.

    At this point we are still in primaries in most states and in some districts there may be many candidates running in the primary election. I’m sure you can find a few candidates someplace that are basing his whole campaign on Russia, but most Democrats at this point are focusing more on the message Republicans want to cut health care, food assistance and other programs for poor and working class to pay for tax cuts for corporations and the wealthy. Next they will try to cut Social Security and Medicare to pay for tax cuts.

    People like Glenn Greenwald are watching too much CNN and MSNBC.
