Obama urges Democratic candidates to be "sexy"

On Thursday night, President Obama introduced his strategy to bolster Democratic candidate’s victories this November.

The Democrats and their November candidates are well aware of the minefield of anger circling the American electorate these days. From higher taxes to Obamacare, most pollsters see the Republicans taking control of the Senate and picking up seats in the House.

It is time for the Democrats to come up with a strategy to get American’s minds off of these topics.

They have tried the class warfare route with little success, the “war on women,” strategy with some notoriety, racism, Tea Party bashing and a host of other topics and gimmicks to escape the political doldrums.

But now comes the president’s idea.

He called on his party to do everything they can to make the upcoming midterm races “sexy.”

That’s right, “sexy.”

As he put it, “We know how to win national elections. But all too often it’s during these midterms where we end up getting ourselves into trouble because, I guess we don’t think it’s sexy enough.”

The remarks were made at during a meeting with Democratic Governors and Party donors. He went on to rally Democrats to focus heavily on State policies and politics. “If there’s one message that I want to deliver today to every Democrat and every person who’s interested in supporting Democratic policies, is that you’ve got to pay attention to the States.”

The crowd sat bemused, probably with the image of a gown man wearing child pajamas in last year’s Obamacare ads placed to encourage younger people to sign up.

That sort of “sexy” is much like fingernails on a blackboard.
