Face the Nation spoke to a liberal focus group on Sunday which trashed the Democrats as out of touch. It was a brutal but accurate assessment.
Transcript via CBS News:
JOHN DICKERSON: Connie, if you were giving an instruction manual to the Democratic Party to get their act (LAUGH) together what would you tell them to do?
CONNIE: They have to define who they are. They have to have a backbone about standing up for it and not be bought out by anyone or swayed because they think they might lose their office. They have to be willing to stand for it. If you’re going to say, “I’m standing for this,” then you have to stand for it all the way
JERRY: I think the Democrats, not only are they out of touch, they have no interest in correcting the situation. They’re not doing any post mortems. They’re writing off, “Well, we don’t own the White House because of Putin or because of WikiLeaks.” What did WikiLeaks tell us, by the way? They– regardless of who was behind it, they confirmed that Hillary Clinton and the Democratic establishment are liars. And that they had their thumb on the scale for– you know, for Hillary Clinton. Well, you know, so what are they basically saying? “If– if we hadn’t been caught lying, we’d be running the country right now.”
