  •  Yeah, that will be the way to hand Congress.... (5+ / 0-)

    ...to the GOP next fall.

    They'll blame the Democrats. We'll blame the Democrats.

    Voters, who never will hear all the details, will listen to the smears and the gripes...and vote GOP.

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

    •  Voters will not need to hear ANY details. (0+ / 0-)

      They already know that Republican economic policies ruined their economy and cost them their jobs.  All voters will need is a couple of months of constant reminders during September and October that it was Republicans who caused their current pain.

      Very few voters will reward Republicans for hurting them.

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

        But I think you put way too much confidence in the ability of the Democratic party to push that reality through the media in a way that will make it clear to the voting public in sufficient numbers to stave off losing seats and possibly control of the House and even the Senate.

        cheers,

      •  No, they don't know that. (0+ / 0-)

        They are told that "Congress" blocked their unemployment benefits. They are also told "and you know who controls Congress."
        (The Democrats. The MSM doesn't go into esoteric details describing how the "minority" GOP can block what the Dems want to do.)

        You do realize that most Americans are not political junkies like us? They get their info through two minute soundbites off the corporate media and via lying "I'm just an ordinary citizen, but I just had to let everyone know this!" emails carefully crafted and sent out by neocon and GOP propagandists.

        I get about three of these a week, from Republicans, who believe them, and independents who...wonder....
