The Democratic Party of Orange County is hosting a holiday party on Monday night, Dec. 16, at 7 pm, at 1916 West Chapman Avenue, Suite B, in Orange. But do they really have much to celebrate about this year?
President Barack Obama has proven to be a gigantic fail in his second term. His Obamacare has been such a major whiff that it has begun to drag down his entire party and quite a few Democrats in Congress are now openly running scared. But that is just the tip of the iceberg.

Here in California the Democrats had to remove one of their own recently – when the perverted Mayor of San Diego, Bob Filner, a lifetime Democrat, finally had to pay for his transgressions.
California Governor Jerry Brown, this state’s leader of the Democratic Party, has had to watch in silent fury as his high speed rail train has derailed, thanks to a court decision.
And to top it all off, it has become increasingly likely that Democratic Assemblywoman Sharon Quirk-Silva will lose her seat in 2014, to Young Kim, who currently works for U.S. Rep. Ed Royce.
I think that Democratic Assemblyman Tom Daly will also be toast of SAUSD Trustee Cecilia Iglesias challenges him in the heavily Latino 69th Assembly District.
And of course I would be remiss not to mention that the Democrats in Irvine lost their grip on that city last year when the Republicans on their City Council finally prevailed over Beth Krom and Larry Agran’s Agranista coalition.
If you decide to go to this surely moribund affair, know that they will be collecting shoes for Global Volunteers, and toys for LULAC. Please bring your old shoes and/or an unwrapped toy. At least some good will come of this.
