  •  Nj and VA - different but same (0+ / 0-)

    VA suffered from a shitty right wing Democratic candidate.  NJ suffered from a base that is not happy with overall national policy.  Add in the economic mess, bail outs for wealthy, high property taxes and you get a knee jerk reaction.  But make no mistake, the administration is putting the base's feet to sleep with the attacks on progressives, wishy washy support of a strong public option, wishy washy support of strong regulation and escalating Afghanistan to name a few issues.

    Bottom line is that I suspect neither state did well turning out the base and in turn we didn't turn out the swing voters.

    I find your lack of faith disturbing -- message to ConservaDems.
