Skip to comments.CNN Panel Rings in New Year By Laughing at Democrats' Messaging
Posted on 01/02/2018 10:33:26 AM PST by Oshkalaboomboom
It's a new year, but a CNN panel hosted by Nia-Malika Henderson took a few moments this weekend to reflect on Democrats' poor messaging in 2017 - poor messaging which resulted in their pacing far behind the Republicans in fundraising. As of November, the RNC had $39.8 million in cash on hand, to the DNC's $6.3 million.
Watch video here
Jake Tapper also remarked on the Democrats' dry fundraising on Twitter. It's kind of a big deal, he noted.
The fundraising superiority of @gop over @dnc this year is not
to be dismissed and its kind of astounding how Democrats
arent publicly sounding an alarm

Former interim DNC chair Donna Brazile dished on the Democrats' disorganization during a book event in Washington, D.C. last month. For an hour, she described the DNC's inability to patrol its funds and its catering to Hillary Clinton during the 2016 election.
It's that last sticking point that has stopped small donors from giving the DNC one penny, Wall Street Journal's Julie Bykowicz mused during the panel discussion. They feel like the committee "forced" Clinton on them, without even considering giving Bernie Sanders a fair shot at the nomination.
As for big donors like Tom Steyer, they are too busy spending their money on farfetched impeachment efforts against President Trump.
"It's a tough year for the Democratic Party to try and rebrand itself and market itself in a way that is attractive to small donors and big donors alike," she said.
In July, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer tried to get some momentum going by claiming Trump had turned his back on the working people and that the Democrats were going to fill the vacuum.
How is that going? Henderson asked her panel, chuckling.
The Democrats have not articulated their rationale for being put back into power other than that they would stop Trump, Karen Tumulty of The Washington Post noted.
A lot of disaffected Bernie Bots are fleeing the DNC......................
with Trump confiscating money from these foreign entities, it will get even tougher for dems to raise money.
The Dems aren't supposed to ask for money, they're supposed to give it away along with free phones, and SNAP cards, and other bling.
If the Hollywood virtue-signaling and white-guilt money dries up, who will take up the slack?
Communists eating communists. Nice to see.
They always think they can fix things by just re-calibrating the “message.”
Remember George Lakoff and his “reframing” ?
Remember “put more religious references into your campaign strategy.” That resulted in a spate of speeches that contained lines about how “Jesus would be angry that we’re not doing anything about global warming” and the like.
Me ‘n Sue. That died too.
We just found out CNN is on Drugs ,LOL
“A lot of disaffected Bernie Bots are fleeing the DNC......................”
The small donor is still ticked off at the DNC. In addition, bigger donors are waiting for Soros to give his 10 million before they commit. The rats don’t have a message for people to rally around. “Hate Trump” isn’t a message.
Didn't work for the Republicans either...................
It doesn't matter how one re-brands and re-packages and re-markets Progressive Socialism. Most rational, thinking adults see it, recognize it no matter what it's called and will reject it at the ballot box.
Emphasis on rational, thinking adults anyway.
No money no massage no real candidates and nothing to offer but “vote for us so we can impeach Trump and raise your taxes
“ and the “experts say the donkeys win back House and Senate. Ha ha ha hz go away morons.
Lots of Freepers, me included, would love to see Hillary, BO, Holder, etc, behind bars. Realistically, I don't think that will happen. However, lots of 2nd tier Dems - like Weinstein and the Podestas - will go under the bus as the big dogs flail around trying to protect themselves.
IMO, that might be equally as good. Dries up the money supply. Hillary, BO, et al, will be left isolated and powerless.
Then they went home after the show, logged into the DNC Webpage and made a Donation.
"Re-calibrating the message" = "telling a better lie"
So that means CNN laughed at themselves??
“As for big donors like Tom Steyer...”
Isn’t he running for governor in California?
how about "we are the "free" handouts to parasites party"
If Trump is so bad, the blame is on the Democrats for nominating a such a sorry candidate unable to beat him. If they were able to produce a message appealing to ALL the masses, instead of the identity politics of division, they might have a better chance.
didn’t the DNC spend something like $31 million in Alabama to defeat Moore?
