Democrats’ worst campaign enemy: their mouths

New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is, according to Fox News, “facing a deluge of criticism for declaring America ‘was never that great,’ providing a soundbite for Republicans that could be a game changer in the midterm campaign.

New York Gov Andrew Cuomos remark about America never having been “that great” has ignited a firestorm of criticism. (Screen snip, YouTube, Channel 90)

And out in the Pacific Northwest, Democrat newcomer Dr. Kim “I’ll-fight-the-NRA” Schrier may have just built her own campaign speed bump by comparing her campaign to fighting the Germans in WWII, a remark that has fired up KIRO Radio icon Dori Monson to the point that he has called her “clueless” in a searing Op-Ed at MyNorthwest.com.

Cuomo has been rumored to be eyeballing a 2020 presidential bid, but his loose lip may have just grounded that ship, and nothing he can do is going to “un-speak” that comment, because too many people understand that such candor reflects how someone truly thinks all the time. What he said that has everyone talking is this:

“We’re not going to make America great again. It was never that great.”—New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, Democrat

His follow-up remark that, “We have not reached greatness, we will reach greatness when every America is fully engaged, we will reach greatness when discrimination and stereotyping against women, 51 percent of our population, is gone,” is not what people will remember. If Republicans are smart – a point that seems often debatable – they will note that the “never that great” phrase came from a Democrat and is reflective of what the far left zealots now controlling the party think about the country.

Cohen
Rep. Steve Cohen regrets his remark about Peter Strzok deserving a Purple Heart for testifying before Congress.

As for Schrier, her remark seems to rank right down there with Congressman Steve Cohen’s (D-TN) comment to disgraced former FBI agent Peter Strzok during a House committee hearing that Strzok deserved a Purple Heart for appearing to testify under intense criticism for his partisan message exchanges with a woman about Donald Trump. Cohen later said he regretted telling Strzok he deserved the medal.

This is what Schrier said near the end of a Washington State Indivisible podcast, according to Monson’s column that infuriated him:

“I do think of this as one of those moments in history, I think back to the questions we ask our own parents. I asked my parents, ‘What were you doing during the Civil Rights movement?’ And I imagine things like, ‘What would I have done in World War II?’ And I would always love to think that I would be on the right side of history and that I would be bold enough to stand up and do the right thing, and brave enough. And so I know my son Sam will ask me one day, ‘Hey Mom, what did you do after Trump got elected?’ And this is my answer to him.”—Dr. Kim Schrier, Democrat candidate for Congress, 8th District Washington

Republicans have their own gaffes, but Cuomo, Cohen and candidate Schrier just might become the poster children for what is wrong with Democrats in a midterm battle that seems to be theirs to lose.
