While mainstream media sympathetic to Democrats spun its wheels for a year publishing variances of Russia collusion stories, the collective Democratic Party snoozed in the shade of fake news, lazily anticipating the demise of the Trump administration. More than nine months after Donald J. Trump was elected President of the United States, leaders of the Democratic Party still have no coherent policy message outside of leaking more Russia collusion stories to reporters.

Democrats' missing message

The DNC, headed by unknowns Tom Perez and Keith Ellison, has only spearheaded one firm message: there is no room for pro-life candidates in the Democratic Party.

Meanwhile, Sen. Elizabeth Warren is becoming more unhinged each day as her nickname, Pocahontas, becomes a household laugh line. At the same time, Nancy Pelosi’s politically vulgar, toxic persona holds all the charm of being French-kissed by a rabid iguana. Nowhere recently was the utter chaos within the Democratic Party more on display than when House Democratic Caucus Chairman Joe Crowley during an interview earlier this week was unable to articulate one platform of his decimated political party, according to a report published today by AP.

The question was innocuous enough and one would think lobbed for Crowley to knock right out of the park. It went like this: what is your party’s core message to voters?

The Democrat, appearing apparently taken aback by a question that did not focus on Russia collusion, hesitated, unable to answer.

"That message is being worked on," the New York congressman said in the interview. "We're doing everything we can to simplify it, but at the same time provide the meat behind it as well. So that's coming together now."

Incredibly, nine months after Hillary Rodham Clinton managed to crash her auto-piloted campaign into a crowd of unredeemable deplorables, the Democratic Party's leadership is still wandering dazed through the political wreckage of campaign crash site.

The non-answer from the # 4 House Democrat is the perfect answer to the problem facing his party. The Democratic Party has no discernible message save using insider leaks to feed anti-Trump Russia collusion stories to a willing media for anti-Trump propaganda.

Democrats have lost 1,000 seats

Besides having no presidential contender to groom for 2020, Democrats are facing huge odds in their bid to steal enough red state House and Senate seats for an upset.

While the inability of top Democrats to answer a simple question like what they stand for speaks volumes, former Pres. Barack Obama is raising more money for his foundation than the DNC is for the 2018 congressional elections. Historically, Obama has been a raging nightmare for the Democratic Party as it lost more than 1,000 state and federal seats under his watch.

DNC leaders tone deaf

Leaders of the DNC are equally vague and severely tone deaf. "The Democratic Party needs to up its game," said National Party Chairman Tom Perez in a recent speech. "What I hear most from people is, 'Tom, we not only need to organize, but we need to articulate clearly what we stand for.'"

Really Tom? The Democratic Party is having the worse year for fundraising since 2003.

As far as articulating clearly what you stand for, explaining to people during a speech that your party needs to clearly articulate what it stands for is no substitute for clearly articulating what it is that your party stands for.

The coziness between mainstream media and the Democratic Party will no longer substitute for ideas and policy proposals. What’s “coming together now” is a prolonged electoral drought for an already wilted Democratic Party.

When Crowley was pressed for a timeline on national Democratic party messaging, CBS News reported that he said, "We're all working on that… we're hoping to have this up and running and out by this fall."

Really, Joe...by fall? You needed it last fall.
