I’m Tired of Democrats Having No Message

Earlier today S&P downgraded US debt from AAA to AA+. It’s on the front page of The Wall Street Journal’s home page, with a “live blog” section containing the following quote:

Washington weighs in, with Boehner blaming a Washington spending binge, and Pelosi focusing on transparency on the deficit special committee.

A few problems here:

  1. Notice how Boehner’s message is clear. It’s stupid and wrong, but it’s clear and easy for people to understand and exactly what you would expect him to say.
  2. What the fuck is the Pelosi statement supposed to mean? Do most people even know what the fuck the deficit special committee is, or why it might have a problem with transparency?
  3. Where the fuck is the White House? Why isn’t there a statement from Obama?

Why can’t the Democrats put together a coherent message on anything?
