  •  Democrats are useless. They'll sit back now, and (6+ / 0-)

    let the rightwing dominate popular culture because they don't know - or are unwilling - to fight back with gusto. They'll let tea party 2.0 to gin up a full head of steam, they'll let deposed conservatives spread misinformation about a "stolen election" until it turns into popular wisdom, while they SIT ON THEIR HANDS AND HIGH FIVE THEIR SPECIAL INTEREST GROUPS. Then will see-saw hard right at the next election cycle and they'll act like they couldn't prevent it. ASSHOLES.

    Send conservatives to for re-education.

    •  As an example of their weakness, look (4+ / 0-)

      at how the Republican party has acted lately to get "Right to work" passed in Michigan. Their actions are GOLDEN 'EFFIN BULLETS to even an amateur advertising professional. This information should be on PRIME TIME and SHOVE DOWN VIEWERS THROATS. Instead, the silence from Democrats and the "liberals" in power is deafening.

      This is a PRIME EXAMPLE of what I believe now - Democrats DON'T WANT TO FIGHT. Time to flush them, if that's how they want to be.

      •  You are right and I first noticed this (0+ / 0-)

        "sitting on their hands right after Clinton was elected in '92.  No balls.

        This "Trickle Down" thing has turned out to be somebody pissing on my leg and tellin' me it's rainin'.

    •  Not So Sure; That's Been the History But Groups (6+ / 0-)

      who've taken serious hits lately are not going to stay politely in line this time. Unions for one have been very pointed about this.

      Party leadership is a big factor, and there's no doubt that in terms of motivation we got a President particularly ill-suited to our needs for 09-10. There's some tentative evidence he's changed his stance and may put motivation on a higher priority than during his first 2 years.

      If he and the party and some of our demographics are sufficiently chastened from 2010, it could be a much better outcome in 2014. For the first time in years I'm seeing some encouraging signs.

      We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for victims of our nation and for those it calls enemy.... --ML King "Beyond Vietnam"
