    Its why negative ads are far more effective than positive ones. I wish Democrats spoke bluntly like this. Because the good thing about our side is we can speak bluntly while telling the truth.

    But we don't. Instead, we seek to avoid offending people. At some point, we have to start treating Republicans like the enemies they deserve to be. Stop calling them good, decent people because they aren't. They are awful, horrible people.

      We need to crush these people.

      For example, why do so many Dems make excuses for Boehner. They say he's a deal maker, he's being push by the Tea Party, and on and on. Meanwhile Boehner hammers Obama on a daily basis preventing anything from getting done. The few times that he gets anything done it is with Dem support. Tell me, why aren't we beating him up just like tthey do Pelosi. We should be telling the public what to expect from the Boehner/McConnell Repubs so that there is no way for them to whitewash their almost total obstruction. Dems don't seem to understand that all politics is national---not local anymore.
