  •  He did it to himself (7+ / 0-)

    Sounds like the Progressive movement and the SEIU gave him plenty of time to change his mind.  he dug his own hole.

    It's crazy NOT to complain to the Dems when they surrender. Why are we on this site, if not to influence policy? (202-456-1111 White House)

    •  I guess he didn't think we were serious... (7+ / 0-)

      He doesn't realize that progressives are DYING to make an example of someone.  He's going to get crushed.

      The much easier vote would have been yes!  Now, he'll have to fight a contested primary with angry dems and a three way ticket in the general?

      Who the fuck is his campaign manager?

      DARTH SPECTER: I am altering the deal! Pray I don't alter it any further!
      LANDO REID: This deal keeps getting worse all the time!

        Rahm set out to crush the progressives, when he kept trying to dump the public option or even meaningful reform

        Well maybe we don't have the power to beat the white house chief of staff (not yet) but theres no way we are gonna take this kind of shit from some pissant little congressman who only won because he had labor and progressive support.

        I hope, he stays a "no" and we DO knock him off!  It'd really unite the Progressive movement and give us something to rally behind.
