MSNBC’s Harris Perry: Dems should tell people to ‘just deal’ with canceled health plans

avatar

MSNBC host Melissa Harris Perry had a bold suggestion for Democrats she believes lack “swagger” going into November’s midterm elections: tell voters to “just deal” with health care plans canceled due to Obamacare.

The hyper-liberal cable news host bemoaned what she views as the Democratic Party’s unwillingness to campaign hard on their “accomplishments.” She likened this year’s electoral process to fixing up a house for sale.

Republicans, she argued, “go into a fallen-down, blighted house, slap some granite countertops while ignoring real problems, and declare their work the best thing ever! They have swagger.”

“And then you have the people who will do the more substantial, structural changes,” she continued, referring to Democrats. “They’ll redo the wiring or reinforce the foundation. But they won’t do anything to actively or aggressively court buyers or advertise their work. Try as they might, they can’t make the house look good?”

Harris Perry’s solution? Get in voters’ faces about your policies — even (especially?) those viewed as failures, like Obamacare.

“They’re not even owning it!” she lamented. “No confidence, no swagger, no ‘Yeah, you can’t keep your crappy plans! Just deal with that!'”

“President Obama certainly has that swagger,”she added, noting that other Democrats would do well to follow Obama’s lead.

Hating Jesus: The American Left's War on Christianity

Matt Barber with Paul Hair

The secular left doesn’t merely have a disagreement with Christianity. These are not people with whom one may reason, compromise or even disagree. They are dedicated to evil. They demand nothing less than the abolition of the biblical worldview, and the destruction of Christ’s followers right along with it.

Now is the time to fight back. If you are someone, Christian or not, who refuses to see Christianity wiped out (like it ever could be) and your children indoctrinated into pure evil, then sitting on the sidelines is no longer an option.
