Harry Reid throws Debbie Wasserman Schultz under the bus
While most of the Democratic party and the mainstream media are blaming everyone from the FBI, the CIA, Russia, and racist white males for Hillary Clinton’s loss while refusing to look in the mirror Harry Reid–of all people–seems to have had a moment of clarity. He is blaming the Democratic National Committee’s lack of focus on the states as the problem, and by this he is in turn laying the blame on Debbie Wasserman Schultz.
Here is more:
Outgoing Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid took a dig at the Democratic National Committee (DNC), calling it a “worthless” organization that does not sufficiently help the state parties.
“I believe one of the failures of [the] Democratic Party has been the Democratic National Committee, the DNC, has been worthless,” Reid told Nevada Public Radio.
“They do nothing to help state parties. That should be the main goal they have. I developed everything in Nevada on my own. Their help was relatively meaningless.”
In an apparent jab at Rep. Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL), Reid said he hopes the DNC picks a “full time” chair.
“We need a full time DNC chair and what they should do — they can take my model if they want — it’s not rocket science. It doesn’t take a lot of brain power to figure out what needs to be done,” Reid said. “They should take a few states every election cycle, maybe three maybe four, and help them develop the infrastructure for good state party organization.”
The Democratic party seemed to have forgotten there was this little thing called the Electoral College and it cost them the election. I happen to believe Harry Reid is right about this; the Democratic party had a bad strategy if they had one at all.
It is interesting that a man who is a political novice who ran a campaign with political novices seemed to understand how the system worked better than the establishment Democrats did. Harry Reid realizes this now, will the Democratic party take his advice or will they continue to blame everyone else for their failure?
