    •  I actually read the Vanity Fair piece (6+ / 0-)

      over a day ago, and whatever the diary is about, the piece is certainly not "about" Obama.

      Kossacks are falling into the same tired routine... hyped up over someone either a) not even elected to national office or b) a token opposition figure without much clout or effect. Beyond that, there is more interest here in blaming and tearing down Democrats than getting a movement together.

      Do you righteous creatures realize that Maine and Arizona and Missouri have senate elections as well, next year?

      Do you realize that the jobs bill was killed by filibuster-threat in the senate?  Even if you took back the House, how can you overcome senate rules? Harry Reid won't and doesn't want to change them.  

      These are all the real, difficult, process questions with which you should be dealing.

      Your little spat is just childish.

        I swear, the way people act about Warren on this site is closer to cult members talking about their wonderful guru than political activists.  She is nowhere near as popular or well known in Massachusetts as people around here think, her web site doesn't even list her upcoming campaign appearances, and she hasn't said word one about helping people in genuinely distressed areas of the state.  Her election is NOT assured, and anyone who underestimates Brown is in for a nasty surprise.

          know about Massachusetts that would lead you to the conclusion that Brown is a shoe in.  A battle is imporatant and a struggle is needed to win for Warren.  No one would not say that.  But this idea that the fight somehow comes from no one caring or excited about the prospects of victory, is insane on your part.  People in the battle need the energy... and I hope Warrren and they (the hundreds of volunteers)  bring that energy up to the level that will sweep the horror of Brown out of the Senate.

          •  Uh-who are you to demand that I "explain myself"? (0+ / 0-)

            Also, please show where I EVER said that Brown was a "shoe in" for re-election.  I said, and I quote, "anyone who underestimates Brown is in for a nasty surprise," which is only the truth; Brown is popular with a lot of people here, he has a lot of money, and he's a seasoned campaigner on the state level dating back to 1998.  He's not stupid and he's not going down without a fight, and the comments here that seem to presume that Warren will demolish him as easily as she's driven Setti Warren and Bob Massive out of the Democratic primary don't do anyone any good, most of all Warren, who's never so much as run for school committee before this.  I certainly won't vote for him, but a lot of people outside of Route 128 don't even know what Elizabeth Warren looks like, let alone what she stands for.  

            As for what I know about Massachusetts - I've only lived and voted here for thirty years.  I do apologize if that's not good enough for me to have an opinion.

        He didn't sit back and let his stooges throw Warren under the bus?   You seem to think Obama is the most ineffectual, ineffective and useless person we've ever had in the white House.

        Yes we can, but he won't.
