Democrats Lost Because They Failed To Move Swiftly On Infrastructure Legislation

It is not unusual for the party in the White House to lose in elections a year later, and particularly in the Virginia Gubernatorial race.

But the loss of Virginia to Republicans, and the extremely close vote in New Jersey, are a danger sign, a warning sign, to Democrats for the upcoming midterm 2022 elections, when the entire House of Representatives, one third of the US Senate, and 36 gubernatorial elections will take place a year from now.

Looking back, it was a mistake to hold the Physical Infrastructure bill hostage over the Social Infrastructure bill, as the Democrats could not show any actual accomplishment on their agenda.

The progressives can be blamed for this, sadly to say, but now it is urgent that action take place on both bills very soon, so that the Democrats have a record of what they are doing to improve the lives of the American people.

One must remember that Donald Trump and the Republicans took no action on infrastructure, and would not do so on social infrastructure.

So the Democrats need to be able to show they can produce results, and play hardball in the upcoming campaigns.

The nation’s future is at stake, so no time to be depressed, and instead time to move ahead aggressively!

    Dems need to get their act together or we’re doomed in 2022.

    Dems need to understand that the GOP embraces running on dog whistle racism because it gets votes. Critical Race Theory is their latest dog whistle. You can’t laugh that away. You must confront and rebuke it.

    Trump has put out a statement claiming victory. LOL!

    CRT isn’t even taught in schools in Virginia. Yet another lie Republicans used as a scare tactic to get soccer moms in the suburbs to vote for them.

    Mark Warner and Tim Kaine are warning that the Dems are trying to appeal too much to the very liberal elements of the party, alienating the middle of the road voters. Quite frankly, I’m in agreement with them.

    I’m in agreement with Leia.

    James Carville says that Democrats focusing on “woke” issues is hurting the party.

    More than half of Virginia voters – 51% – said the Democrats are too liberal in exit polling. Youngkin won 87% of the vote among that group.

    I think Democrats need to listen to what he says rather than dismissing him.

    More people are concerned about issues such as the economy than what the proper pronoun is for a transgender person.
