  •  Maybe you all ought to consider giving up (0+ / 0-)

    on the Dems and switching to THE GREEN PARTY.  True, there are a few fighters like Elijah Cummings, but maybe the reason the Democratic Party isn't fighting in districts that are "blue" is because Dems are just demoralized.
    Happens when your party has a warmonger in the White House year after year.

    •  Warmonger? (0+ / 0-)

      Who's the warmonger?  Not President Obama.  He ended the war in Iraq; Is ending the war in Afghanistan; refused to go to war in Iran (at least so far); limited action in Syria.

      No, we don't have a "warmonger" in the White House.  I don't agree with him on every issue, but going to war is not the problem (but would be if a republican were in the WH).

    •  That's not the issue in CA-49 (0+ / 0-)

      CA-49 is rated with a PVI of R+4 per the Cook Political Report.  It's very much a red district but not as red compared to most red districts in the U.S.

      The problem is, for the Democratic Party in CA-49, they are running against Darrell Issa, who has had a long history with the CA Republican Party since the 1990's as far as fundraising even before he was elected as Congressman in 2000.  Issa's clout is CA-49 and quite a number of wealthy people reside in the district who happen to be some of Issa's donors.

      On the other hand, in CA-49, numbers of Democrats and Independents have increased in the thousands in the last general election cycle vs. just 225 Republican voter registrations so the GOP is really slacking off across the board as far as voter registration drives & outreach.
