Democrats were the losers in Tuesday’s elections.
David Harsanyi writes:
In all their vast coverage of agitated right-wingers, it may have escaped the attention of many in the media that over the past eight years, the Democratic Party has moved dramatically to the left on an array of issues. It’s now a party of cultural imperialists and economic technocrats who want to rule through fiat. It is a party more comfortable coercing Americans who see the world differently than convincing them. It is a movement propelled by liberal pundits who have stopped debating and resorted to smearing millions they disagree with.
Obama might be capable of governing this way and remaining popular, but his political talents aren’t transferable—not to House or Senate Democrats, who have been paying for his policies, and certainly not to Hillary Clinton. Democrats nominated a corrupt candidate with abysmal political instincts, a decades long habit of mendacity and a dearth of new ideas.
