Democratic Strategery

September 20th, 2010at 07:32am Posted by Eli

Looks like the plan for the 2010 midterms is a mix of unconvincing vague happy talk:

President Barack Obama, seeking to fire up an important part of his support base ahead of November’s elections, told black leaders on Saturday he wanted their support to “guard the change” he was delivering.

“I need everybody here to go back to your neighborhoods, and your workplaces, to your churches, and barbershops, and beauty shops. Tell them we have more work to do. Tell them we can’t wait to organize. Tell them that the time for action is now,” he told the Congressional Black Caucus.

And fearmongering about how scary the teabagger Republicans are:

White House and Congressional Democratic strategists are trying to energize dispirited Democratic voters over the coming six weeks, in hopes of limiting the party’s losses and keeping control of the House and Senate. The strategists see openings to exploit after a string of Tea Party successes split Republicans in a number of states, culminating last week with developments that scrambled Senate races in Delaware and Alaska.

“We need to get out the message that it’s now really dangerous to re-empower the Republican Party,” said one Democratic strategist who has spoken with White House advisers but requested anonymity to discuss private strategy talks.

In other words, they got nothin’.  Essentially their strategy is to say, “Yeah, we know we’re Republican sellouts, but at least we’re not crazy!  So vote for us again in November!”  I know I’m energized and inspired.
