Inflation is one of the driving issues in the minds of people who will vote in the 2022 midterm elections.
Democrats know this. They also know that most voters blame them for the situation we’re in right now, so they are desperate to deflect blame.
During a recent presser, a handful of Senate Democrats tried to blame Republicans for not doing anything about the problem, but that’s just not going to work.
People know which party is in power and who is responsible.

Democrats Roll out a Desperate Strategy to Deflect Blame for Their Failures
Unless the goal is to receive backslaps from a sycophantic mainstream media, it’s not a good time to be a Democrat. Things have collapsed in ways that didn’t seem possible over the last six months. Sure, it was expected that the party in power would see some regression, but at this level?
Inflation continues to be a top concern among Americans, with January’s number clocking in at another multi-decade high. People are seeing their buying power eroded, and with gas prices set to explode further over the next year, there is no relief in sight.
Meanwhile, Russia is on the verge of starting a major war in Europe, Afghanistan is now a terror state, the border is in shambles, and COVID-19 has killed more people under Joe Biden, with vaccines available, than under the previous president.
Yeah, things are bad, and when things are bad, desperation sets in among the party in power. That’s the theme of the latest strategy by Democrats to try to deflect blame for their failures. Sen. Debbie Stabenow (D-MI) provided a perfect example on Friday of exactly what that looks like.
Here’s the video:

No amount of excuse making or deflecting is going to save the Democrats from the wrath of voters this fall.
