Democrats Roll out a Desperate Strategy to Deflect Blame for Their Failures – Opinion

Unless the goal is to receive backslaps from a sycophantic mainstream media, it’s not a good time to be a Democrat. Things have collapsed in ways that didn’t seem possible over the last six months. Although it was to be expected that the party at power would experience some losses, what happened when they did?

Inflation continues to be a top concern among Americans, with January’s number clocking in at another multi-decade high. With gas prices expected to rise further in the coming year, people are losing their purchasing power. Russia appears to be on the brink of starting major European wars. Afghanistan has become a terrorist state. The border is chaos. COVID-19, which includes vaccines, has resulted in more deaths under Joe Biden than the former president.

Things are not always good. When they are, it is easy for the party at power to become desperate. That’s the theme of the latest strategy by Democrats to try to deflect blame for their failures. Senator Debbie Stabenow, D-MI (a prime example) of how that works on Friday.

Let me clarify. Democrats control both branches of partisan government (Congress and the executive), yet it’s the job of Republicans to propose solutions for problems that the Democrats caused (and continue to cause)? To coin a Southern phrase, that dog won’t hunt. It’s not only insultingly nonsensical given the power dynamics, but it also absconds from the fact that Democrats won’t If you don’t like what Republicans say, listen anyway.

Biden is being repeatedly urged by Republicans to reduce his spending, starting back with the American Rescue Plan. This was the largest catalyst in our current inflation boom. Republicans are open to more domestic production even when it comes to gas prices. What has been Biden’s response? He canceled Keystone XL’s pipeline, and he reacted to federal oil leases. So in the main, it’s not even true that Republicans haven’t offered solutions. They are just solutions that the Democrats don’t want to implement.

But when you’ve got nothing left, you’ve got nothing left, and the Democrats truly have nothing left. Nearly all of the moves made by Biden’s administration have been counterproductive and disastrous. The economy is now at risk of a recession due to the upcoming interest rate increases (which are the last measures left to combat out-of-control inflation), and it’s possible that things will get worse.

Admittedly, it’s nice to be on the other side of this for a change. It was the Republicans that were struggling to make a stand as election doom approached in 2018. This culminated with a blue wave, which gave control to the House of Representatives to Democrats. It was the first step towards their total control over the government.

The same hard lesson is coming to the Democrats. It is impossible to control all of the government while simultaneously winning an election for the minor party. It just doesn’t work, and Stabenow’s commentary only comes across as pathetic blame-shifting. The results from the past year are in the hands of Democrats, which will continue to grow as midterms near.
