Dan Proft Talking “Blue Tornado” On Beyond The Beltway

Should the 2018 midterms be more appropriately dubbed a “blue tornado,” touching down some places, but not a wave across the country? Should either party pander to suburban women as a special class? Why is the DC press corps eulogizing the Republican Party even though the GOP still holds the majority in the country? Dan Proft joins Bruce DuMont as a panelist on Beyond The Beltway.

Suburban Moms

What to do about suburban moms?

The GOP lost suburban women by 19 points in the midterms.

It was well-to-do suburban moms who gave Democrats the House.

Should Republicans shame them as the Left does?

Should Republicans pander to them with the “Hi, my name is Dan. I’m a Republican and I apologize,” approach they’ve been using.

How about eliminating their unique designation.

Political messaging needs to be a succinct with a point.

Here’s mine for suburban moms: other than the special role you have in raising your children, you are not special.

You’re supposed to be a civilizing influence.

Instead you’ve thrown in with the mob pounding on Tucker Carlson’s front door while his wife was locked in her kitchen pantry waiting for police to arrive.

I’m not impressed with your B.A. in Ancient Civilizations from Vassar.

You don’t care about good schools or public safety any more than I do.

You’re not doing any more of Corporal Works of Mercy than I am.

Adhering to Economics 101 axioms doesn’t make me a misogynist.

And I’m not responsible for the man you chose to marry.

Here’s my value proposition for you and every other man and woman, whatever their race, religion, age, education and household income: separate bathrooms and equal protection under the law.

Take it or leave it.

Suburban Democrats Sell Out To Chicago Machine

If you live in the suburbs of Chicago, you are already paying the highest property taxes in the nation. And yet, State Representatives like Deb Conroy, Carol Sente, Mike Halpin, Marty Moylan, Natalie Manley and Stephanie Kifowit voted to send your schools’ state funding to bailout schools in Chicago. State Senators like Melinda Bush, Jennifer Bertino-Tarrant, Laura Murphy, Tom Cullerton, Linda Holmes and Julie Morrison opted to defend Chicago’s Political Machine instead of your community.  In their view, it is a greater threat to their power to cross their party leaders than to cross you.  Pat Hughes explains in this edition of Two Minute Warning.
