Tom Perez’s 100 Days Of Disarray

- June 2, 2017

Masking His False Bravado With Cheap Vulgarity, DNC Chair Perez's Terrible Leadership Has Only Accelerated His Party's Downward Spiral


TOP TAKEAWAYS

  • Almost 100 days after the boos of protesters nearly drowned out the announcement that Tom Perez had been elected the new DNC chairman, his party is divided and consumed by infighting and finger-pointing. 
  • Despite a chairman that came to power on the promise of unity, the identity and future direction of the Democrat Party are now being debated in a public spectacle that has turned nasty; culminating in a California Democrat conference devolving into a boiling cauldron of expletives, protests, and anger.
  • This week, Hillary Clinton has Democrats playing the blame game as to why they lost the 2016 election after she threw the DNC under the bus.
  • Looking back on Tom Perez's first 100 days as DNC Chair, the DNC has failed to help the Democrats win any major elections, has failed to help increase fundraising for the party, and has failed to hide the dysfunction plaguing the Democrat party.

'Yes, Perez and company are clearly afraid of Sanders and his followers, but letting Sanders make a mockery of the party doesn't exactly help it build in the long haul.'"

Keith Ellison, D-Minnesota, the candidate to challenge Perez for the national chairmanship. The group supports single-payer healthcare as Sanders did."

He is someone who shares the values of Democratic voters, who wants to fight corruption, protect access to the ballot box, and promote good education.' 'I think that Bernie seems to have a rather extreme point of view, that if a candidate wants to do anything to create jobs, that he's not a progressive,' Moreno added."

"Perhaps Clinton's most fresh and savage criticism on Wednesday was directed at the Democratic National Committee. She went as far as to say that when she became her party's presidential nominee, she inherited 'nothing' from the committee. 'I'm now the nominee of the Democratic Party. I inherit nothing from the Democratic Party,' Clinton said. 'It was bankrupt, it was on the verge of insolvency, its data was mediocre to poor, non-existent, wrong. I had to inject money into it - the DNC - to keep it going.'" ("Hillary Clinton Slams New York Times, DNC, Comey For Loss," CNN , 5/31/17)

Clinton's Comments Will "Exacerbate" Rifts Within The Party. "Whatever you think about Clinton's excuses for her loss and how credible they are, it's clear this whole thing is threatening to expose some real rifts within a Democratic Party that is also eager to move forward. And now that Clinton is casting blame upon her own national party for her loss, that's only going to exacerbate things." (Aaron Blake, "Ex DNC Aide Hits Back Hard At Clinton Says Her Campaign Ignored Its Data," The Washington Post , 6/1/17)

Clinton's Comments Have Bewildered Even Her "Erstwhile Allies ."

(Dan Balz, "Clinton's Misplaced Criticism Of The DNC As A Cause Of Her Defeat," The Washington Post , 6/1/17)
