As the analysts attempt to explain exactly what happened last Tuesday, we have heard every possible theory to explain why with an economy that is growing, deficits that have fallen every year of the Obama presidency, unemployment reduced by half, the killing of Osama bin Laden, millions of previously uninsured covered by health insurance thanks to Obamacare and an end to the Iraq war, Democrats were still unable to even hold the status quo.
Roseanne Barr showed us years ago how to win an election. Maybe if Democrats had talked to their Republican opponents as she talked to her Republican representative when he knocked on her door, the outcome would have been different.
When he identified himself saying that he was knocking on doors to get to know his constituents she asked, “Why didn’t you just go down to the unemployment office and see everybody at once.”
When he attempted to escape her inconvenient questions saying that he had a lot of doors to knock, on she grabbed her coat and went along because she still had questions for him.
Maybe, just maybe, if Democrats had held Republican feet to the fire instead of allowing them to control the debate, maybe if they had run on the successes of the administration in spite of the constant obstruction from the “loyal” opposition, the outcome would have been different.
Watch Roseanne make him squirm in the video below.
