Comparing the state of today’s Democrat party to that of just a few short years ago reveals a marked decline in both influence and credibility. After two years of controlling the Executive and Legislative branches of government after Barack Obama’s election, conservatives united in 2010 to rail against the left’s usurpation of American liberty.
As Obama’s disastrous second term limps along, voters have even less faith in Democrats – as evidenced in recent poll.
Signaling the party’s desperation, the Democrat National Convention recently distributed a letter begging contributors for more money as 2013 draws to a close.
The official notice begins with a portent of life under the influence of “Boehner’s Tea Party House.”
Apparently, the DNC missed the widening rift between genuine conservative activists and the establishment ideology of House Speaker John Boehner. Nevertheless, the fundraising ploy plays to the left’s irrational fear of traditional values.
Claiming the Tea Party “will do everything in their power to ensure that President Obama’s second term agenda is dead in the water,” the correspondence pivots to asking the recipient for a $3 donation.
Of course, the utter incompetence and corruption found within the Obama administration has all but guaranteed his agenda will ultimately fail; however, it is much easier to rally the faithful by fraudulently pinning the blame on conservatives.
The last-minute push for “grassroots support” claims that without added financial support, “our campaign to win a Democratic House next year is doomed from the start.”
Considering analysts are giving Democrats a one-percent chance of retaking the House, one wonders how any number of $3 donations will effect real change. The American people are reeling from leftist policies inflicted over the past several years; and it seems unlikely voters will forget the object of their ire before the upcoming midterm elections.
