  •  I communicated that: (0+ / 0-)

    I've had enough,

    I do not identify with the president, or the current feelings of the party,

    The message of "be calm" is not resonating with me,

    I no longer plan to vote for non progressives, I think you can read into that a meaning of a push toward primaries, and the like,

    I'm upset, and I'm taking action.

    I did ALL that with a whole lot less words than you did with your loquacious and boring drivil geared to make you feel superior. Do YOU feel better now?

    Who's trying to goad whom Stephen?

    You have your right to your opinion, I will grant you that, but do not denigrate my right to mine!

    •  If by progressive you mean Congresscritters... (0+ / 0-)

      ...I'm all for it.

      What I'm telling you is that if your basic results is status quo numbers in the House, or worse, then it doesn't change things substantially enough for my tastes.

      I don't want to pretend its some great thing to get progressives in Congress, or greater concentration of liberals, if the end result doesn't change our ability to create policy changes.

      That's what matters in the long term: Control of the legislature.  We don't get that, all you have is a bunch of Democrats being "expressive" while Republicans either block things or get their way.

      We have to quit imagining there is some magic level of assertiveness that will take today's Republicans, and make them turn tail.  

      More to the point, I don't see how we can properly demoralize the Conservative machine until we start winning those seats back.

      Do you?  What's your plan, beyond the rejection of Obama, and all non-progressives?

      Simple question: In the years since Republicans successfully urged the disempowering of workers and unions in the Midwest, what has happened to those states economies?
