GREG GUTFELD: The Democrats never let a crisis go to waste. So, as we head toward a midterm election, they have been on a blitz of fund raising. They’re getting a little sloppy. They’re raising money for…
SARAH HODGES: Absolutely, and what I have observed in many organizations is that their problem is not that they had a crisis, their problem is that they ran after their crisis, which is what they did with the stimulus package, and they’ve run after their crisis with the healthcare law, and they’ve run after their crisis with the debt ceiling.
And what I’ve noticed is in nearly every crisis — which is not saying you have a crisis every time you open an envelope. But the one that always struck me the most is the one that never even happened. And that’s the deficit, that’s the debt ceiling crisis. There was no crisis.
And so, it’s just a matter of going in and out of their fund raising — like they ran after the stimulus package, they ran after the healthcare law and they ran after the debt ceiling. So, they kind of went out and threw their money into the air and said, “Give me more.” Then, they’re back to their old ways.
Now, to me, that’s a sign of a crisis, a crisis of the party. They keep running after those campaigns, and I think it’s very much in their political DNA to run after their crisis. And I can’t quite figure out how they keep managing.
GREG GUTFELD: And, Sarah, your critique of the Democrats is not just the fact that they’re running after their crisis, it’s the fact that they’re running after their crisis by pushing the very policies that are leading to the crisis.
SARAH HODGES: Right.
GREG GUTFELD: And the deficit, debt ceiling, we all know that the problem is that we have a lot of bills that are being funded with debt, and we’re running out of space. They’re running out of time.
SARAH HODGES: Yeah.
GREG GUTFELD: So, my question to you is: Do they have a crisis with their message or do they have a problem with their political DNA?
SARAH HODGES: No, no, they have a crisis with their message
