[Watch] De Blasio Discusses Democrats’ Reality After Election

While we are waiting for the Ferguson and amnesty shoes to drop, it is worth noting that not all Democrats are taking the “woe is me, the people just don’t like us” approach to debriefing and dissecting voters’ sentiments after the midterms.

Bill De Blasio, mayor of New York City and a potential presidential candidate, sees the reality of the Democrats’ situation all too clearly.

Don’t you just love the big words and elegant concepts

  • Elections were about persuasion
  • Paradigm shifted profoundly
  • Option of not voting has become a prairie rebellion
  • Choosing not to participate for lack of motivation, lack of belief that anyone was actually representing their interests
  • Greater perpensity for Democrats to feel left out, misunderstood, misheard
  • It “suggests you cannot repeat this pattern.”

Damn right Democrats can’t repeat the pattern if they have any hope of regaining power.  The people are onto them.  Their interests are not being represented.  Call it a “prairie rebellion” if one will, but free passes from this generation from Democrats are over.
