    The Democratic base did turn out in 2010.

    The many who Obama has swung to "D" in 2008 did not show up, primarily because they'd had two years of roughly "nothing" and their wallets weren't feeling it.

    Meanwhile, the "R's" were whipped into a frenzy of corporate caffeinated tea and turned out in large numbers.

    Way too abbreviated, but that's my understanding.  The D's did not take a break, but the D's didn't get the same overall support they got in 2008.  And some of that can be put down to Obama's late and lackluster campaigning for Congressional seats in 2008.
