    Democratic candidates got in 2010 belongs to the Democratic elected leadership from 2009 and 2010.

    To blame people for not being enthusiastic about the shit sandwiches they were handed is wrongheaded.

    •  To expect good results (0+ / 0-)

      without first demonstrating that you can get and keep people in office is wrongheaded.

      It'd be nice if politics worked the way you think it does, but it doesn't.  The sooner the left realizes that and adjusts their strategies accordingly, the sooner there will be progress on progressive goals.

      •  We did our job and beyond in 2008. (0+ / 0-)

        It was there choice where they wanted to go.  

        •  You hated Bush in 2008. That's all. (0+ / 0-)

          You promptly turned on the Democrats at the first chance you had to demonstrate you were a constituency worth listening to- 2010.

          You epic failed, and then have the clueless gall to complain that there's no progress.

      •  So 2006 didn't count? (0+ / 0-)

        Exactly how many times do we have to put people in office for it to count? It seems like Obama had it figured out given his actions immediately prior to the election.

        The revolution will not be televised. But it will be blogged, a lot. Probably more so than is necessary.

        •  2006 was about hatred of Bush (0+ / 0-)

          and the Republicans, as was 2008.

          Your first chance to demonstrate you could put and keep people in office was 2010, and you blew it big time.

            You failed too.  Where I'm at we got everyone Dem in Office.  Don't blame Californians, we're straight dem for every statewide office.
