Most depressing ‘pep talk’ in history? Out of the gates, new Dem chair basically admits his Party is pathetic

It wasn’t Republicans who just told the Democratic Party it is suffering from a “crisis of relevance.”

Newly elected Democratic National Committee Chair Tom Perez delivered a rather dismal picture of the Party which has “work to do” to overcome the “insanity” that it finds itself facing.

“I understand that one of the basic pillars and adages of politics and of life is often, ‘What have you done for me lately? What do you stand for today?” Perez said during a speech to the International Association of Fire Fighters on Monday.

“I understand that not only did the Democratic Party not cross the finish line successfully in 2016, but when you look at the elections over the last eight years in states across this country, Democrats have lost over 900 seats,” he added.

“I ran to be the chairman of the Democratic National Committee because I understood that the Democratic Party has both a crisis of relevance and a crisis of confidence,” he said. “That we have work to do; that the definition of insanity is to do the same old thing over and over again and think that this time you’re going to be successful.”

Far from an invigorating speech, it wasn’t exactly a vote of confidence from the new guy.

Lest Democrats and leftists be completely deflated, Perez offered some light at the end of the tunnel.

The “Democratic Party’s values of yesterday—of Ted Kennedy, of Joe Biden—are today’s and tomorrow’s values,” he said.
