Wednesday Night Video – Deval Patrick Tells Dems to Grow a Backbone
September 5, 2012 Leave a comment
I’ll never understand why Democrats stopped fighting after Obama won election, and ran to cower in the middle during that disastrous 2010 election. Neither does Deval Patrick. From yesterday’s opening ceremonies…
PATRICK: It’s time for Democrats to grow a backbone and stand up for what we believe.
I would add that it’s actually possible to have a backbone and also pay attention to the polls. The polls keep telling Democrats that populism is not just the right policy — populism sells. I hope they listen.
…adding further that today’s cowardly attempt to cater to conservative criticism that the Democratic platform is not Godly enough in exactly the right way is not a smart move or a good sign.
