Drop anti-Trump 'resistance' obsession, focus on 'results,' Democratic strategist warns party

1 post in this topic


A veteran political observer now warns the Democratic Party to stop endless pushback against President Trump and his administration, and get back to business.

“Results not resistance. That’s what I think the American public was expecting when they brought Democrats back into power in the House. But instead, echoing Hillary Clinton’s ill-fated 2016 strategy, the Democratic leaders so far have fully planted a flag in simply opposing legislation, funding and appointments under the theory that putting lead boots on President Trump is the best way to get him out of office, even if the country is put on pause for another two years. This is a fundamental mistake,” wrote Mark Penn in a Fox News op-edpublished Saturday.

He was chief strategist for Bill Clinton’s 1996 presidential campaign, along with Hillary Clinton’s 2000 Senate and 2008 presidential campaigns.

Mr. Penn points to recent polls which suggests the voting public favors  reasonable compromise over dramatic attacks and counterattacks.:snip:
