This week, centrist Democrats and party-loyalist civic leaders gathered in Denver to plot strategy for the upcoming 2018 election, and wound up using rhetoric straight from the Nancy Pelosi and Debbie Wasserman-Schultz playbooks.
During a 3-day schedule of presentations, U.S. Senators and mayors joined lawyers and lobbyists from the Obama administration in a hotel to discuss religious voters, radio broadcasting and culling left-liberal elements out of the platform.
But the slogan they came out singing could use some work.
“Security, opportunity, compassion and results,” chirped Alaska Senator Mark Begich, who helped organize the meeting. Hinting that the vague-as-voodoo new direction could mean free security for other countries, opportunities for the Federal Reserve Bank and compassion for rich whites in California, Begich (in photo) said that party members must “do the right thing” and focus on establishment politics.
“Do the right thing” was Wasserman-Schultz’s mantra during the hotly contested 2016 Democratic primary race, snarkily urging Bernie Sanders supporters to get on board with candidate Hillary Clinton.
