    He could doom them down ticket. I don't agree entirely with Dems not making the case. LBJ's point about losing the south keeps playing out. I think there's a general problem, at least in 2010, with Dems not making the case for anything except "protect the New Deal" which I'm all for but it wasn't looking forward.

    Why I don't agree entirely is stats I've seen - no link, sorry I'm just rambling but it's honest rambling - about the percentage of "young earthers" in this country. The far right grass roots is depressingly large and these people have no interest in voting for anything but against team blue and all the cartoon bad guys they've been sold: ACORN! Welfare Queens! Libruls! Ponytailed scientists who are also evil socialist bolshevicks who want to take away their guns and are waiting for Obama's second term to destroy the country.

    These people cannot be reasoned with. They hate us more than they care about the future. They have to be beaten soundly at all levels of the ballot.

    If you didn't like the news today, go out and make some of your own.

      I choose the latter.  That's really all there is to it.

      •  no one's saying anything about giving up (0+ / 0-)

        around here that I've seen. The thread was on whether it's better for us if one of the two current losers sews it up soon.
        I'm old enough to remember Reagan beating Carter. I'll admit I gave up for a while after that. Learned a lot of lessons since then - decades will do that. One of them that the right has rubbed our noses in is - ALL up and down the ticket. 2012 we retake the House. Period.
