Institutional Democrats will dismiss this playbook out of hand, but if they do, they fail to realize that when a strategy keeps failing, you have to change course or perish. We’re now living in a post-truth now and while I’m not suggesting AT ALL that we go tit-for-tat with the lies and false accusations, we must be more forceful with the truth AND stop playing Mr./Ms. Nice Guy — meaning we must call a lie a lie, a liar a liar, and be willing to go toe to toe with the idiots on the right.
And yes, we need fresh ideas and fresh faces in leadership roles. Nancy Pelosi has served honorably for many years, but come on, I can think of a half a dozen Representatives who would serve us better in her stead.
