  •  It should be a huge damn warning (6+ / 0-)

    that the Rubes are conning the Dems into trampling all over their own brand, and the instant they calculate the Dems have sold out enough to stir outrage across their voter base they'll pivot and attack the Dems from the left.  Scoff if you must, but it's tactically sound and with today's ever-so-"pragmatic" Dems, almost a lock to work like a Swiss watch.

    Ever get the feeling you've been cheated?

    •  It doesn't help that the Democrats set this up (1+ / 0-)

      Frankly, Obama and colleagues have made Bachmann's life far too easy by coming to the middle and allowing the GOP to pose as the defenders of essential services.  Can it really be that they forgot the lessons of 2010 and the scare tactics and the attempts by Paul Ryan to hang $719 billion in medicare "cuts" around the necks of Obama/Biden ticket?  Maybe the play eleventy dimensional chess, but I'm not sure they play it that well.

      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 imprescindibles.
