  •  Explain how a Republican winning this seat (0+ / 0-)

    helps us in any way?

    Look at 2010? Are we better off now that we got rid of the blue dogs and got the House we got now?

    We need to operate in the real world. At this point, I'll take blue dogs from blue states because when Republicans win majorities the country moves backwards and people die.

    When we stop putting leaders from the past up on pedestals and ignoring their flaws, we can start seeing our present leaders for what they really are.

    •  Oh spare me. (0+ / 0-)

      It's the "pragmatists" that aren't living in the real world.   They are so focused on short-term, localized electoral concerns that they are wholly unable to see what happens when we gorge ourselves on Blue Dogs.  The Blue Dogs caused 2010 and gave us the Congress we have now.  

      And, yes, people die when Republicans win majorities.  That, however, will not change by electing fucking Blue Dogs, who stand in the way of action on climate change, stand in the way of health care reform, and continue to support a bloated military budget and US foreign action.   Take the partisan blinders off.
