  •  I have the data! (0+ / 0-)

    Been working in Michigan where we have data on how many retired union members didn't bother to vote in '10. That number alone would have prevented Snyder and Right to Get Paid Less from the state.

    '10 was the election of progressive apathy, I can assure you.

      I can't tell you how many "Obama just didn't do it for me. It's his fault that we lost the 2010 elections" comments, but then at the same time those people will say "it's not our fault, progressives were all fired up in 2010!"

      Look, we screwed up collectively. We weren't as fired up as we SHOULD have been, even if we weren't apathetic or whatever you want to call it, and it burned us and burned the country.

      As Hillary Clinton would say - what difference does it make now? Lets work on not having a repeat of this in 2014 and maybe we can get something done!

      When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.

      So how many people voted Republican in Michigan in 2010 vs how many in 2008?
