  •  No, you can't trust Obama's DCCC (6+ / 0-)

    they screwed up in 2010, the last thing we need to do is let them screw up 2014.

    They can cram their corporate candidates.

    •  I'm not sure that that was CVH. (0+ / 0-)

      I think it was that the Dems promised serious change and proceeded to kill everything in the Senate except a complicated health care bill with a mandate people didn't like and the private insurers right at the heart of it and a complicated financial reform bill hardly anyone understood--but they sure understood that Wall St wasn't being investigated or prosecuted.

      Oh, and the stimulus. Which would have been great if it had been bigger, and if 1/3 of it hadn't been tax cuts. IOW, it would have been great if it had been built to work.

      Worst of all was the constant spectacle of the Democrats, who had just been given the largest amount of power that anybody could expect over 2 cycles by the American people--60 seats in the Senate, a large majority in the House, a President with a 65% approval and a nationwide activist organization bearing his name that was ready to act--whining over and over again that they didn't have enough votes. Complaining over and over again about the filibuster instead of acting to change it, pronto. Whining constantly that they didn't have enough power when they had just been given the most power Democrats had had for 40 years.

      The American people knew how much power they had given the Dems. They knew that they had just kicked the Republicans in the ass, saying "Don't let the screen door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya." and they triumphantly put the Dems into power....and the Dems whined about how they didn't have enough power to handle the Republicans.

      That does not encourage confidence.
