  •  The Democratic base needs to be scared (5+ / 0-)

    While I am one that has argued in the past that Democrats need a positive message with regards to policies in order win elections, I'm afraid that I have to concur with those that have advised that voters, especially Democrats, need to have something to vote against to motivate voter turnout.  This means that Democratic base voters must be told that things will get worse if Republicans win the Senate.  Furthermore, the longer the House remains in Republican hands the greater the likelihood of an impeachment attempt.

    The argument has to be made to Democrats, "Do you really want to see Obama impeached?"  If you stay at home and don't vote this fall, you are voting for Obama's impeachment.  The Republican base will not be satisfied with anything less than Obama's impeachment in the next couple of years.

    I am no Obama fan.  I feel that Obama lied like a cheap fucking rug to progressives in both elections.  However, I will turnout and vote for the Democrats this fall.  As feckless as Democrats can be, the Republicans offer nothing but plutocracy and to hell with everyone else.  There may be hope someday that Democrats can be intimidated by progressives into eventually doing what is right for all Americans, but Republicans are a lost cause.

      All I can say is A-fucking-MEN!!!

      Yeah, I agree, Obama lied like a chep rug.  I haven't seen the change I was HOPING FOR.  But the Repukes sure as hell had nothing better to offer.

      The basic Republican mantra is "I got mine, fuck you!"
