The Democratic Strategist

Political Strategy for a Permanent Democratic Majority

The most important and unstated “lesson” of 2014 is that the GOP’s embrace of extremism as a calculated political strategy worked perfectly. It has invalidated key elements of Democratic political strategy. It is urgent that Democrats face this reality

A Message From Managing Editor Ed KIlgore:
Dear Readers:
Since Obama’s election in 2008, The Democratic Strategist has repeatedly insisted on the unprecedented nature of the political transformation that has been occurring within the GOP.
In a series of strategy memos we have tracked the growing influence of extremism as a political strategy and philosophy within the GOP–an extremist strategy and philosophy that views politics as essentially a form of warfare and political opponents as literal enemies.
The 2014 elections represented the final triumph of this strategy within the GOP and demonstrated its very successful employment in a range of political campaigns. Democrats now urgently need to understand how this political strategy works and what can be done to combat it.
We are therefore pleased to present the following TDS Strategy Memo by contributing editor James Vega:
The most important and unstated “lesson” of 2014 is that the GOP’s embrace of extremism as a calculated political strategy worked perfectly. It has invalidated key elements of Democratic political strategy and it is urgent that Democrats now face this reality.
You can read the memo HERE:
We believe you will find the memo both useful and extremely important.
Sincerely,
Ed Kilgore
Managing Editor
