These losers have no shame.
Here’s what they won’t do. Any soul-searching. First, because they have no souls. Second, because their defining characteristic, being a Clinton Corporate proxy pretending to represent the Democratic Party, is precisely what sunk the Party’s chances this year. Admitting that would mean that they would conclude that nothing, save their own demise, would serve the party well. In fact, any opposition will pointedly not include the perspective of supporters of Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren:
Part of the economic message the group is driving — which is in line with its centrist ideology — is to steer the Democratic Party away from being led into a populist lurch to the left by leaders like Sen. Bernie Sanders or Sen. Elizabeth Warren.
“Populism is inherently anti-government,” Cowan said. “That works if you’re a right-wing conservative, like Donald Trump. That doesn’t work if you’re the party of government.” He added: “You can’t meet right-wing populism effectively as a matter of politics or governing with big government liberal populism, or 1990s centrism. You have to do something entirely new for a new era.”
And, The Third Way is not the only organization conducting ‘research’. If you read the Politico story that I linked, you will note that each of the organizations doing this are controlled by Clinton loyalists. Ignoring, of course, that the Clintonian remaking of the party into a corporate cash cow is precisely why voters rejected the party and, of course, Hillary Clinton this fall.
So, for those who spread misinformation over here about the Third Way no longer existing, not only does it exist, it is merely in ‘reinvention’ mode.
It goes without saying that this is a recipe for disaster. Because it’s a proven recipe for disaster.
