If it couldn’t possibly be any more obvious that the RNC is having a far better week than the Democrats did with their convention, Barack Obama’s 2012 campaign manager Jim Messina provided this assessment of the Republican convention so far:
I am so sick of hearing pundints laud the RNCC production look and feel. Stalin also put on a pretty show, didn't make the message any better.

Well, there it is.
Rs are definitely having a good week when we go right from zero to 1937 show trials. https://t.co/x8nS6x6uZN

Admiring Stalin's productions isn't something I would tout.

I'll give you props for dropping a Stalin reference instead of the usual go-to Hitler.

We don’t remember any Democrats mocking a slick production and comparing it to Stalin a few years ago:
I prefer Greek columns, tbh.

How soon the Dems forget!
People tend to bring up Hitler and Stalin when they are losing an argument. https://t.co/FfrlHQbxBz

Just admit it, the Dem convention was a crap show compared to the RNCC https://t.co/6rssflt555

It’s even more amazing when you remember that Messina got exactly what he was hoping for in 2016:

LOL! Talk about backfire.
