The Democrats – Greatest Hits of 2014
It’s easy to forget how many stupid things Democrats have said over the last year. Fortunately, David Rutz of the Washington Free Beacon has put them all together:
The Worst of the Democrats in 2014
The Democratic Party had a really bad 2013. Somehow, it got worse.
President Obama admitted in August that “we don’t have a strategy yet” in battling the terrorist group known as the Islamic State, just months after dismissing the organization as a mere “JV team.”
Vice President Joe Biden, in an impressive feat even for him, managed to offend Jews and Asians in the span of one day, and he also referred to Africa as a “nation.” Soon-to-be Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) also offended Asians when he joked he had trouble “keeping my Wongs straight” at the Asian Chamber of Commerce, and he also made headlines this year with his bizarre rants about the philanthropist Koch brothers.
Democratic National Committee chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D., Fla.) stepped in controversy when she remarked Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker had “given women the back of his hand.” It didn’t work in dissuading voters; Walker won his third election in four years.
Here’s the blooper reel:
All of these blunders have led to some infighting in the Democratic Party.
Dana Milbank of the Washington Post:

Chuck Schumer, the No. 3 Senate Democratic leader who would very much like to be No. 1, caused a furor this week when he gave a speech at the National Press Club bashing fellow Democrats and the White House. He said that Democrats focused on the “wrong problem” when they passed Obamacare and that the way they handled stimulus legislation was a “mistake.”
As if by way of reply, the White House announced the same day that it would veto a $440 billion tax bill the Senate Democratic leadership had negotiated with Republicans. Meanwhile, former White House officials who serve as surrogate defenders of President Obama went after Schumer on Twitter.
Former Obama aide Tommy Vietor: “Shorter Chuck Schumer — I wish Obama cared more about helping Democrats than sick people.”
