Like boys in their mid-teens with any cars, Democrats are asking, "What do you want to do?"
"I don't know. What do you want to do?"
"I don't know either. That's why I am asking you."
Hence video games were born.
From the New York Times:
PHILADELPHIA — When President Obama takes the stage here this week to begin his monthslong political farewell, it will mark a bittersweet moment for Democrats.
Mr. Obama is not going to be missed only because he is beloved by the faithful. The president has also fulfilled two longstanding if often elusive goals of his party: He has largely transcended the traditional moderate-versus-liberal split, papering over internal divisions. And he passed a sweeping health care law.
But without the unifying presence of Mr. Obama in the White House, or the organizing aim of expanding health care, it is unclear who will hold the party together and what will be the next great project of liberalism.A political party without any ideas is a bunch of cronies seeking power.
Nationally, both parties are moribund. At the Statehouse level, Republicans have ideas for reducing government and stimulating the economy. This is why they now control more Statehouses than at any time since 1928. But nationally, the party was a failure. Trump took over.
Democrats too have run out of ideas. They recycle old ones. Equal pay! (It has been on the books since 1963.) Civil rights! (Passed in 1875, 1957, 1964 and 1965.) Gun control! (Passed in 1968.) Raise the minimum wage! (Imposed in 1938.)
