    Because they'll send out "ordinary citizen" emails by the thousands that blame "Congress" for this "and we all know who controls Congress."

    They'll pitch the same lie at town hall meetings, media interviews, etc. etc. etc.

    It'll be the classic half-truth twisted into a whole lie and they'll lay it on thick.

    Meanwhile, we progressives will be slamming the few Dems who voted against extending unemployment benefits...and that will be our "message" to the voters.

    Which will reinforce what the GOP is saing, even though that's not our intent.

    The neocons will be delighted.

    Freedom has two enemies: Those who want to control everyone around them...and those who feel no need to control themselves.

      Great Depression, and those lies will not work on Americans today.  Remember, in 2008 Republicans took much AWAY from Americans.  People will fight much harder to get back what they lost than to fight for what they never had.  

      The 2008 economic meltdown is not very complicated, like climate change.  Even Republican economic guru Alan Greenspan blames Republican economic ideology and policies for destroying the American economy.

      In 2008, Americans understood that Republicans destroyed their economy.  In 2010, they will remember that understanding, and no matter how much Republicans spend trying to undo those memories, voters will punish Republicans for the destruction they created.

      Read Teixeira's 2010 report, and see why the GOP is done.
