    If we go down, it will not be Obama's fault.  It won't be Palin's fault, It won't be Rush's fault.  It will be our fault.

    It won't be my fault.  I know that.

    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.

        egg, except it's not.

        The support was there in 2006 and 2008.

        The much hoped for, anticipated, and needed policies and agenda weren't there after 2008.

        Whose fault will apathy be?

        The Democratic leaders.

          can make all the problems magically disappear.  It is never our fault is it?
          How many times did you write letters?  Call the White House, Call Dems in power?
          How many times did you write letters to the media or to the newspapers?
          I ain't buying that this is all their fault as it was our responsibility to hold feet to the fire not just whine.

            into office.  They will have to remember who can remove them from office.  That is what grass roots is all about.  Finding a candidate who is a true democrat and wants to follow the planks that made the party truly great.  Republican lite is not my cup of tea.

            have no idea who I am and what I've done.

            And if you want to try and bully people to do whatever you want it is you want them to do, you're certainly free to do that.  And I'm certainly free to dismiss you as such.

            Just an FYI:  I don't write letters to elected officials.  It takes too long to get through security, so I use more effective means.

            I'm not going to fight or spar with you.  Nor do I feel the need nor am I going to justify myself to you.
            You're in no position to blame anyone but the elected Democratic officials or yourself.  I say that because you have absolutely no idea what anyone else has done, other than the people who have personally told you what they've done.  That number doesn't equal a million or two or three million or more.

            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.

            •  I have no clue who you are (0+ / 0-)

              and if you think this is bullying, you truly are clueless.  I am stating facts.
              As far as what you have done.  Obviously like the rest of us, not enough, or we wouldn't be n this shape.
              You don't have to justify yourself to me.
              You are right.  How do you justify yourself to the future our kids may find themselves in?  I know politics too.  

              I do write letter and I do call people out.  Face to face and to Washington Beauracrats and especially Tea party borderline traitors.  

              No you don't have to like my diary and you don't have to post on it either.  I am simply stating the truth. Sit on your principles and we all fall.  That I do take offense to.  I am still mad at the Nader crowd of Florida

      to you, gooderservice, for your truth and wisdom!!! It will be OUR fault and the probable DEATH of this Nation...I can't believe this NONSENSE is happening, not after the eight years that this Nation just experienced under Bush & his Legion of Doom....I don't understand it, at all...

      Republicans make a mockery of the saying: Great minds think alike...
