This ‘Dumb S***’ Will Cost Them: Dem Mastermind Panics as Red Tsunami Builds

Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina took issue with Democratic socialist Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s support for far-left candidate Alessandra Biaggi, who is primarying Democratic incumbent New York Rep. Sean Patrick Maloney. (Maloney currently serves as the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee chair.)

Messina expressed his anger in a response to a Twitter thread from New York Times reporter Shane Goldmacher about this endorsement on Tuesday.

Messina wrote, “This is so counter-productive. The Supreme Court is about to outlaw abortion. We could lose both houses. So we are going to focus our time running against each other? Now we’re primarying [committed] progressives because. . .why? If we lose house it’s because of dumb s*** like this.”

WARNING: The following media contains language that some readers will find offensive.

Actually, Jim, you probably will lose the House, but it won’t be because of “dumb s***” like this — it will be because Democratic rule is ruining the country. But I digress.

Geoffrey Skelley, an elections analyst with FiveThirtyEight, disagreed with Messina’s rebuke, essentially saying he was oversimplifying the situation. Due to forced redistricting in New York, many districts were redrawn.

Skelley responded to Messina with the following: “This conveniently ignores the fact Maloney opted to run in NY-17 instead of NY-18, which has ~70% of his current constituents, because it’s more competitive, thus big footing a Black Democrat out of NY-17 instead of defending NY-18 as the chair of the DCCC.”

Skelley is right. Maloney made the decision to run in NY-17 rather than the redrawn NY-18, which he currently represents, because it is an easier race for him to win. This choice displaced NY-17 incumbent Rep. Mondaire Jones, who has decided to run in NY-10, a newly created district.

Others reacted to Messina’s tweet on a more personal level.

In the end, Biaggi’s primary challenge is not likely to matter all that much. Maloney’s internal poll numbers show him ahead of Biaggi by a margin of 45 percent to 15 percent, with 39 percent of voters still undecided.

Typically, Democrats are the ones accusing Republicans of party infighting. And, more often than not, that’s probably an accurate assessment.

However, as they feel their power slipping away, many Democrats, like Maloney, are more interested in self-preservation than in putting the party first.

A red tsunami is building and they are bracing for its impact.

    libtards are MORONS and born losers. They never get tired of losing, and the only way they ever ‘win’ is by cheating! FJB

    Democrats aren’t the only ones who do this. Georgia lost the Loeffler seat because entitlement baby Doug Collins decided that he deserved that seat and could win against Loeffler, then pick up her voters in a run off with Warnock. We all lost on that narcicism trip.

    There’s nothing progressive about democrat socialist policies, they ruin everyone’s livelihood because socialism is a proven failed ideology, but many Americans are still dumb enough to try again when history has shown them the truth, SOCIALISM HAS FAILED WHEREVER IT HAS BEEN TRIED AND MILLIONS HAVE LOST THEIR LIVES BECAUSE OF IT!!
