    I have long thought that it is simply impossible for there to be so many "liberals" out there who voice such vehement opposition to Obama and other Democratic candidates.  Their posts are an insidiously effective way to weaken support from the base.  I see this on every liberal site and it's sickening.  It's amazingly widespread.  I say we stop sitting our asses tippy-tapping about how this candidate doesn't live up to our high standards and hie ourselves down to the local Democratic club office and get to work!
    I don't want a Republican congress, period!

      agree with your disbelief, and I think that's part of the Administration's problem with taking all liberals/progressives for granted.

      Speaking for myself, if I think the democrats can and should do better, I surely will speak out every time.  Weakening support is not a consideration.  Although I think the elected officials should certainly factor in weakening support before taking any action or not taking action when warranted legislative-wise.

      Republicans want a do-over. No, really, a do-over -- do it the same way all over again. Every Dem should make that clear every day.

      Welcome to reality.

      Apparently, dkos doesn't represent "the base" so what are you worried about here?

        My grandfather was a sergeant in the German cavalry around 1900, and actually shook the Kaiser's hand (presumably the good one).

        Then they sent him over here to infiltrate Milwaukee beer gardens as a waiter and the transit system as a conductor on the old Interurban (Milwaukee had light rail at the time - took him nearly 30 years of effort, but he put a stop to that). He moved up through the ranks until he was crossing guard at a suburban school in his retirement, poisoning the minds of all those little kids as they crossed the street.

        I've had to pick up where he left off.

        If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the administration.
