Rahm Emanuel Says Dems Left Lunge Could Re-elect Trump

Former key White House operative for Bill Clinton and chief of staff for Barack Obama, Rahm Emanuel, says that the Democratic Party’s recent and increasingly radical turn to the left could help secure another four years in the White House for President Donald Trump.
In a piece recently published in The Atlantic, Emanuel, who will soon be stepping down after his second term as Chicago’s Mayor, said, believes the Democrats are in danger of self-destructing.
In the piece, Emanuel said that it is very likely that Trump could win over swing voters by constantly branding the Democrats as socialists.
“The last thing we should do is serve him slow pitches over the plate that allow him to define us on his terms. Unfortunately, that’s exactly what Democrats have been doing since he went before Congress in early February. It’s almost as if we’ve been duped into reading from his ready-made script.”
Democrats Are Their Own Worst Enemies
In fact, Emanuel — who as chairman of the Democratic campaign committee, engineered the party’s takeover of the House in 2006 — provided a very stark warning to members of his party, “Earth to Democrats: Republicans are telling you something when they gleefully schedule votes on proposals like the Green New Deal, Medicare for all, and a 70 percent marginal tax rate. When they’re more eager to vote on the Democratic agenda than we are, we should take a step back and ask ourselves whether we’re inadvertently letting the political battle play out on their turf rather than our own. If Trump’s only hope for winning a second term turns on his ability to paint us as socialists, we shouldn’t play to type.”
While saying the party shouldn’t abandon its core priorities, Rahm says Democrats and independents are so desperate to win that they’ll support a candidate who doesn’t agree with them on everything, as long as that person is seen as able to win.
“So the ideological debates often shroud what voters really want — a nominee capable of standing steady and strong as Trump tries to bully his way into an Election Night victory. The president’s low approval ratings suggest that, if he wins a second term, Democrats will have no one to blame but ourselves.”
Rahm is right about the Dems turn to the left. Now, we can only hope that his colleagues do not heed his warnings, and the party blows itself up as he suggests it will. The self-destructive party is very good at inching closer and closer to falling over that socialist cliff, and I believe that President Trump has the skills, the mindset, and the support, to give them that final little push!

    Really? What would we expect from an Establishment hack like Rahm Emanuel? The man has no empathy for poor people and does not relate well to others. How would he know what direction the future holds for the Democratic Party?

    I am a Democrat and agree totally with Rahm. I agree with Trump though, on the nature of the southern border but not that it is an “emergency”. I agree with him about more help towards Vets and rehabbing of parolees. His philosophies on the military, social reform, permanent tax relief for the wealthy, cowardice in the face of our foriegn adversaries, his ridiculous boasts of “his” accomplishments (he’s riding the wave of the healthier economy started in the Obama years) are self serving and foolish.

    This is very possible. George Mc Govern who appealed to the Liberal wing of the Democratic Party lost the Presidential election to Richard Nixon.
