    Have you noticed?
    Politicians who promise LESS government
    only deliver BAD government.

    •  Take a look at what he wrote (4+ / 0-)
      So why did Democrats lose independents 56-37 in 2010? Because liberal voters pretending to be independent because "Democrats are spineless" didn't show up, while teabagger voters pretending to be independent because "the Republican Party is full of RINOs" did
      The problem is that he characterizes the New Coalition Dems as being the "Democrats are spineless" crowd.  They aren't.  The "Democrats are spineless complainers are the solid liberals who turned out.  The ones who didn't show up were the minorities and the Post moderns "can't pin me down" (here in CA, I think they're the Decline to State voters) folks.

      Except that one phrse in quotes, he's correct.

      Hay hombres que luchan un dia, y son buenos Hay otros que luchan un año, y son mejores Hay quienes luchan muchos años, y son muy buenos. Pero hay los que luchan toda la vida. Esos son los imprescendibles.
