  •  MB, we are supposed to attack Republicans. (0+ / 0-)

    I didn't think it was that nice for Dems, either, although E. Warren received good support.

    I was pleased the usual President Obama attackers were more muted, but they are already back in force.

      ...We weren't that nice to Dems? What site do you have us confused with? Did you notice that we raised $3.25 million for 24 other Democrats besides Warren?

        I'm remembering what I read, you are counting the money.

          ...You think it had nothing to do with what was written?

          •  This site is never one thing. I'm remembering (0+ / 0-)

            criticisms, usually not of Dem candidates, and you are remembering praises. I know I enjoyed anything written about Heidi Heitkamp, I think my mom even voted for her.

            You will not convince me there are NEVER any criticisms of Dems on here. I find those accountability purists sometimes annoying. It was better though, although since Monday I see it swinging back.

            I'm glad how the elections turned out, and look forward to more gains in 2014.

              ...that there are never any criticism of Dems here. Because I make them myself, including Heidi Heitkamp, whose amazing win I wrote about. The point is that at a site devoted to electing more and better Dems with an emphasis now on the latter, there WILL be criticisms, and sometimes sharp ones. And sometimes we will argue in favor of jettisoning some Dems. Politics ain't beanbag.

              Happy new year. And, yes, we agree: more gains in 2014.
