  •  Coasting is the perfect word. (8+ / 0-)

    "Vote for us because we aren't them" just isn't good enough. Overall, Dems need to present more of a vision.

    Best race ever - MI-AG(2002) - Cox vs. Peters. You know you get the joke...

    •  I hate to use it (0+ / 0-)

      but it fits too often.

      We can't "control" our leaders any more than we can influence the Republicans.

      We do have some hardworking leaders, too.

      It's slightly unfair to ask Democratic leaders to be as inflexible and extreme as the people in the other party are.

      I, on the other hand, can push far more than I have. We keep waiting for our leaders to guide us, but how long will we wait until we take action ourselves (I hope it's obvious that I'm talking about nonviolent action).

      President Obama has urged us from the beginning to "make him" be a more progressive president. A lot of his critics have failed to step up. I have to count myself here, but most of us can do more.

      If your strategy depends on having fewer people show up to vote, that is not a sign of strength. That is a sign of weakness. President Obama
