Prominent Democrats are finally realizing and admitting (more importantly) what the real issue with their beloved party is. In an interview on the Meet the Press, Chris Matthews admitted that the Democrat party has shifted too far to the left and is out of touch with mainstream America.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
MSNBC host Chris Matthews said the Democratic Party has moved too far to the left on cultural issues during an appearance Sunday on NBC’s “Meet The Press.”
Host Chuck Todd spotlighted Washington Free Beacon editor Matthew Continetti’s Friday column about the Democratic Party’s struggles in the first 100 days of the Trump administration. Continetti’s piece discussed the party’s current weak governing position and lack of an agenda beyond opposition to President Trump.
In his assessment of the Democrats’ first 100 days, Continetti concluded:
That establishment is just as befuddled as its Republican counterpart at the current political scene. “I don’t know what’s happening in the country,” Hillary Clinton is said to have told a friend at some point during the recent campaign. This apprehension of distance between herself and the everyday lives of her co-nationals is one of the most perceptive observations Clinton has ever made.
Her problem was she never figured out the answer, never came to realize that the various guesses she and Obama and other professional Democrats have wagered about “what’s happening in the country”—racism, sexism, nativism, gerrymandering, Citizens United, Fox News Channel and talk radio, Russia—are insufficient. What the Democratic Party has yet to understand is that its social and cultural agenda is irrelevant or inimical to the material and spiritual well being of their former constituents. And until the Democrats recognize this fact, their next 100 days will be no better than their first. [my emphasis]
