The Democrat Party lost the House in 2010, Senate in the 2014 mid-term elections and President Obama's effectiveness ratings have continued to decline. In 2016 they lost the Presidency to Republican Donald Trump. Democrat candidate, Hillary Clinton, failed to retain the White House with a similar coalition of young people, women and minority voters that swept Barack Obama into office in 2008. Yet the coalition did not show up in the force needed. The Democrat candidate won the popular vote in reliably blue states (California, Washington, Illinois, New York, Massachusetts, etc) as a result of overwhelming majorities in major coastal metropolitan areas like LA, SF, Seattle, NYC, Boston, Washington DC). They failed miserably in the heartland and in other blue states in the rust belt (Ohio, Michigan, Wisconsin) and lost a total of 30 states giving a landslide electoral college victory to the Republican candidate. How will Democrats react and rebuild for 2018 & 2020?

Desparate Democrats Return To Comey For Blame

from The Gray Area:

Democrat desperation continues now that the Trump/Russia collaboration story becomes clearly a farse and the Clinton campaign can clearly be seen as the failure it was. What do the Democrats do now to keep the media narrative alive that the 2016 election was illegitimate? They return to FBI Director James Comey's affect on the 2016 election.

After they loved Director Comey temporarily for his Congressional statement about an FBI investigation on any Russian involvement in the 2016 election, they now return to how he changed the 2016 election for Donald Trump.

Which is it Dems?

Their desperation is now transparent. Even " ... Hillary Clinton came out of seclusion on Thursday to blame her loss to Donald Trump on four factors that were beyond her control”, ... Russian meddling in the election, FBI Director James Comey’s involvement toward the end of the race, WikiLeaks’ theft of emails from her campaign chairman, and misogyny.

WOW! Nothing about ignoring the rust belt states. Nothing about slamming white people as "deplorables". Nothing about the actual email scandal and casual misuse of classified information. Nothing about her failure as a candidate.

Introspection & truth don't matter, only a self-serving message that returns them to power matters.
