A broken clock is correct twice a day and so is Donny Deutsch with his latest advice for Democrats, They should heed his sound advice.
Advice for Democrats
I have a love/hate relationship with Donny Deutsch. I still remember his statement that upset many Progressives. I wrote then::
My concern is something I heard on Morning Joe when one of the panelists, Donny Deutsch, a purported Democrat & Liberal first said he would vote for Trump if a particular Democrat won the primary. Really. I’ve always made it clear I would be supporting the choice of Democrats. When Bernie lost in the 2016 primaries I made it clear at Daily KOS that I would be all-in to support Hillary and I worked my a$$ off for her.
I can sit and drink a cup of coffee with anyone who supports any candidate and still genuinely like the person. It is not hard to do that when one realizes that we live with people and not politicians. In fact, most politicians forget about us, the individual, soon after the election. Politics, Democracy ain’t easy. I sure wish we did a better job teaching it in schools.
But Donny Deutsch redeemed himself many times since including giving some good advice subsequently. I wrote about this one that was on point and still is.
Donny Deutsch, a regular on Morning Joe panelist came up with a great marketing strategy for Democrats. The panel had nervous laughter when Donny was done with the presentation.
Deutsch is suggesting that Democrats tag every Republican with the “ASSAULT” moniker. As the party that is a protector of the ability to have assault weapons while not protecting healthcare and other life-saving social efforts, it is a pejorative that fits the bill.
Unlike Republicans making the word “LIBERAL” a pejorative that does not live up to the hype, “ASSAULT” does because one lives and sees the effects of their assaults in blood, flesh, tears, and pain.
But the action plan he laid out with Nicolle Wallace is more important than is immediately evident. How do we know that? Because Republicans have used it successfully. While they have not won every race, they have consistently overperformed their politically given the lackluster support for their non-policies.
Deutsch suggests that a well-designed army of well-liked and articulate politicians begin selling Biden’s Build Back Better bill immediately. The bill is middle-class and poor people-centric. People will turn when they realize the Republicans will simply take it away.
Yes! A stopped clock is correct twice a day. Deutsch may have added another dimension because recently he has had some good advice.
