I noted elsewhere yesterday that today’s Democrat Party is not the Democrat Party of our parents. Hell, today’s Democrat Party isn’t even the Democrat Party of former Clinton official James Carville and former Obama official David Axelrod, anymore. And no one knows that better than Carville and Axelrod, themselves — and they’re not happy about it.
“Axe” and the “Ragin’ Cajun” teed off on the Democrat Party during a joint appearance on CNN’s “
Fredo Cuomo Prime Time” on Wednesday to deliver a blunt message to their party:
“Metropolitan arrogance” and “urban smugness” is growing more and more “detrimental” to the Democrats’ future election prospects.
To that end, as Breitbart reported, Axelrod noted that Democrats have won seven of the last eight presidential elections by popular vote, while also noting a couple of troubling facts and a staggering statistic for Democrats moving forward (or backwards, as the case might be):
“But that’s not how we elect presidents. Every state has two senators. As we become more and more of a metropolitan party and we write off large segments of the country, Donald Trump won 80% of the counties in this country.”
Now a senior CNN political commentator, Axelrod believes Joe Biden knows the above reality while the majority of the Democrat Party does not. (Personally, I believe the whole “Joey from Scranton” nonsense is a bunch of crap; “Lunch-Pail Joe” is none of the kind.)
“Biden understands that a lot of Democrats don’t. He understands that people who work with their hands, people who work with their back, people who farm are entitled to the same dignity as people who sit in front of a computer screen all day. But that’s not always the attitude of the Democratic Party. I think there’s a price to be paid for that.”
Spoiler, Axe: Your party will continue to pay that price. Why? Because they look down their noses at the very people they claim to represent; to fight for — against the evil Republicans.
