New look for the Democrats

Washington (CNN) - The Democratic National Committee's up with a new website, which includes a new logo and slogan.

The DNC unveiled Democrats.Org Wednesday morning. The logo is a capitol D in light blue surrounded by a darker blue circle. The slogan is "CHANGE THAT MATTERS," which the party says highlights what they call their many accomplishments since President Barack Obama took over in the White House and Democrats expanded their majorities in Congress.

The site also includes an easier way for people to learn more about the Democratic lawmakers and candidates in their states and districts. DNC Chairman Tim Kaine is expected to give more details about the website when he speaks later Tuesday at an event at George Washington University in Washington.

The new website is part of a push by the party to try to help soften what could be blows to their majorities in the House and Senate in November's midterm elections.

    CHANGE THAT MATTERS, sounds like the big lie from nobummer of hope and change. Yes the Tea Party are the gift that keeps on giving, we give one way tickets to liberals and demorats from DC back to their homes for retirement.

    And the R stands for RIDICULOUS! Their new slogan should be 'Crazy, War-Loving, Racist You Can Believe In'.
    Where do you and your elk get the nerve to think that this country is just for the Angry White Males and their 'God-Fearing' women? (As long as that God is Christian)
    THANK A LOVING GOD that the crowd that LIED us into war they didn't pay for; WASTED a surplus left by a DEMOCRAT president, and DESTROYED our creditability abroad is FINALLY showing their true STUPIDITY and voting in IDIOTS that can't win in November.

    "The people do not want to change to socialism"

    Should those who are concerned about that happening decide to actually educate themselves about (a) what socialism actually is (b) what the Dems have actually done and enacted sinec Jan 2009 and (c) the policies, some of which are left over from the Bush administration, that the Obama administration has pursued...well, then they'd be happy to discover that not a single godd-mn thing that has occurred since Jan 2009 came even remotely close to constituting socialism, communism, marxism or any other "radical leftist agenda" boogeyman you can invent. Problem is, I just predicated rationality and progress on GOPers/Teatards/conservatives bothering to educate themselves....

    "First time in congregational election I may vote for democrats"

    "Didn't know the local church was having elections as well. Small world!"

    Can we elect a new Jesus too please? I'm sick of the angry, judgmental one the religio-fascists elected.

    Yeah, right, you mean blows like O'Donnell in Delaware? Ironic how the Republican covergirl favorite, Sarah O'Hara Palin, has become political poison. Even Karl Rove won't touch that, and that's just not good.

    A new look to represent the new liberal ideology. An illegal immigrant with his hand in your pocket taking what you have earned. Or maybe a single mom with 3 kids and one on the way (additional welfare you know).

    Let me tell you something, when the Democrats regain the house in November I expect to be the new pollster at CNN, Gallup et al.

    It should read "The Change that Didn't Work". Spend, spend, spend and tax, tax, tax. Please take away the Check Book – Overdraft doesn't even begin to touch on what this Administration has done to our economy.

    The new slogan should be "change that failed......miserably"!

    If you as an American don't want to burn and crash it is in our best interest Internationaly to vote Republican or Democrat. If a Democrat can't win, for the first time in my life I would vote Republican but never in life would I cast a vote for the Tea Party.

    wow. I'm a diehard democrat and can't stand the new logo.
    1) It looks like the Obama O swallowing the Democrat D.
    2) It looks like a bullseye
    3) It opens us up to attacks like the aforementioned "D is for debt"

    Well , It took the Democrats not even 4 yrs , to mire this countrys Debt , far more than all the money in the World. And yet , they have not caught on , why people are becoming out raged at them. ( Is Ft. Knox next on there give away list )

    They cut soc increases for 2 yrs, then in turn give themselves a raise in pay. Then a paid Vacation , an the disabled Vet is still trying to get treatment, An to make matters worse , they have to fly Bow , ( there pet ) in a special aircraft . This is your big Change

    Thrn it keeps coming up that our so called President , has an illegal aunt , and she is drawng substies for her well neing. And to top it off he himself is as Illegal . Yet this is how the Jackasses work , turn there ass to everything. No substance .

    "That is an insult to Democrats everywhere, "let's give them a new website.. they will get all glossy eyes and follow like moths to a flame""

    Perhaps you should comment after going to the site and informing yourself as to what is there. Sure, CNN makes it sound trite, but it actually has a lot of information there about the candidates in each state, what their policy goals are, what they have voted for/against, what their recent activities have been, etc. No matter what party affiliation you claim (or don't claim as the case may be), it's a very useful tool for INFORMING yourself so you can make INFORMED decisions at the polls in November. Like anything, take it with a grain of salt and view it with a healthy skepticism because it is promotional and will involve "sellers talk," but there are barebones facts to be found there, which is a heck of a lot more than the GOP is offering...i.e., pure, unadulterated ideological demagoguery, misinformation campaigns and massive distraction attempts ("death panels" – need we say more?).

    "CHANGE THAT MATTERS in my view is a Congress without republicans."

    If it wasn't noon and I wasn't at work, I'd be drinking a toast to that, Dutch!

    The new logo reminded me of Acorn logo – bad sign for Dems.

    "The "D" stands for DEBT, and the new slogan "Change That Matters" means more change to Socialism"

    See and that's why you guys are going to ultimately fall way short of becoming the majority in November. Same old, same old "socialism" crapola and nothing of any substance at all.

    Screw the new logo I want new dedication to the party's principles. For decades they've let the jack boot right push them around and defeat them in elections by bullying, lying about them and down right fraud and the dems never do anything about it. Grow a pair! Fight back or put on a dress and sit in a corner and cry

    last I heard the republicans had NO power in congress, that they couldnt do anything if they tried, that they have ideas but the majority doesnt want ti hear them. the dems, if there are any left, will be in a reverse situation after they lose in november. what will they do then,...oh yea...collect a paycheck for doing NOTHING!

    How is "Change that matters..." a good slogan? Getting going from being employed to unemployed is a change that matters. Going from healthy to sick is a "change that matters"...why is a change that matters something that I inherently want?

    Too funny! The crazy Dems will have to change more than just their slogan. They have ruined this country. I won't forget on Election Day! Only a complete idiot or welfare recipient would ever vote these fools back into office.

    A new web site isn't going to help you! You're progressive, social justice agenda of handouts, massive spending, bad health care bill, cap and tax, and illegal alien amnesty are all against the majority of Americans. Take a look at the polls. You're supposed to work for We The People!

    Those 34 democrats will still lose their seats when republicans get more votes in November. They voted for Pelosi as speaker, they voted for cap-and-trade, and they will probably vote for amnesty.

    See you in November.
