Mayor Rahm Emanuel gave Democrats an honest piece of advice and suggested that they “take a chill pill.” He delivered the cold, hard truth to Democrats and said they need to realize that they are not going to take back national power anytime soon.
“It ain’t gonna happen in 2018,” Emanuel said Monday at Stanford’s Graduate School of Business. “Take a chill pill, man. You gotta be in this for the long haul.”
He then explained the path his party needs to take and make the necessary changes.
“We need to start putting moderate candidates such as veterans, football players, sheriffs and business people up in Republican districts, picking battles with Republicans, exploiting wedges within the GOP and fighting attempts to redistrict Congress on partisan grounds.”
Rahm didn’t mince words when he talked about Hillary Clinton and Chuck Schumer:
“Winning’s everything. If you don’t win, you can’t make the public policy. I say that because it is hard for people in our party to accept that principle. Sometimes, you’ve just got to win, OK? Our party likes to be right, even if they lose.”
“I don’t go to moral victory speeches. I can’t stand them. I’ve never lost an election. It’s about winning, because if you win you then have the power to go do what has to get done. If you lose, you can write the book about what happened — great, that’s really exciting!” he mocked Hillary Clinton, as reported by World News Politics.
Instead, he said, Democrats should focus on the GOP. “Wherever there’s a disagreement among Republicans, I’m for one of those disagreements,” he said. “I’m all for it. The president’s with Russia? I’m with John McCain and Lindsey Graham, I’m for NATO! Why? (It’s a) wedge. Wedges have to be schisms, schisms have to be divides.”
