Schumer on Democrats: It’s our fault


He’s said it before, and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) said it again on Sunday’s “This Week” (ABC) after Democrats experienced more election losses this past week in Georgia and South Carolina: You only have yourself to blame when you lose an election.

Instead of continuously pointing the finger at others when their candidates lose elections, Schumer suggested another approach. “Democrats need a strong, bold, sharp-edged and commonsense economic agenda,” he stated, “Policy, platform, message that appeal to the middle class, that resonate with the middle class, and show that — and unite Democrats.”

To that end, he said that people will begin to see the Democratic party taking a new direction this summer. “This economic message platform is going to resonate. It’s what we were missing, and it’s not going to be baby steps — it’s going to be bold,” he said, reiterating, “But you lose an election, you don’t blame other people, you blame yourself.”
