  •  I don't see how you come out with Repukes leading (0+ / 0-)

    I know in the summer there were polls and that one way out in left field from Gallup.  Latest polls show them tied.

    Latest race by race shows everything tightening up.  This is before Oct when the majority of Americans actually start to evaluate the parties and candidates.

    So how the hell you still manage to adopt this BS media framing that Dems are still doomed is beyond me!

    PS: I know Nate is still spewing on about it but he has invested too much in Dems failure to want to see it turn around.  And it will turn around and Nate will deservedly lose a lot of credibility.

    •  I don't get it either (0+ / 0-)

      R's are expected to make massive gains, when voters prefer D's (at least slightly) more?

      •  you miss the entire point (1+ / 0-)

        Voters will not be voting FOR Repugs--they will be voting AGAINST the Dems.

        That is a huge massive difference.

        •  Doesn't make it (0+ / 0-)

          any more palatable. The end result is the same the folks whose policies they are don't like end up taking the house. (MORANS indeed!!!)

          •  the end result is the same (0+ / 0-)

            But the method of preventing the end result is massively different.

            IF people really did like Repugs, then our endless screaming "the Repugs are EVEN WORSE!!!!!" might actually have some use.

            But the reality is different. And our screaming simply doesn't deal with the reality.

            Dealing with the reality, means dealing with our own utter failures as a party.  And some of us here would rather die than do that.

            And so, in November, we will die.

            •  Wrong on all counts...... (0+ / 0-)

              Do you people ever take the time to inform yourselves?  Sheesh!

              The only reasons Dems are behind in some polling is because of enthusiasm gap.  Progressives and Dems in general are NOTORIOUS for not voting in mid terms.

              And in a bad economy it is even harder to get people off their unemployed a$$es and out to the polls.

              If Voter turnout was (and it could still be) the same as the 2008 election Dems would probably keep most if not all seats and maybe gain a few.  

              You people have it completely wrong saying it's for other reasons.  COMPLETELY WRONG!!!

            •  Meh, nobody is dying (0+ / 0-)

              In 2012 the Democrats will probably regain most, possibly all, of their losses this time.  At the very least, Obama will be re-elected, probably by a  substantial margin.

              •  which won't help, if (0+ / 0-)

                the Dems continue to act just like Repugs.

                •  If you think the Dems are just like the Repugs (0+ / 0-)

                  Your name might be Ralph Nader.  The Dems are most certainly not like Repugs.  They may not all be as lefty as you want (although some are), and the results of the compromise needed to get 60 votes in Senate results in some mushy blandness in the actual laws that get passed, but if you can't tell the difference between the two, you are quite blind.

                  •  let me remind you of something . . . . (0+ / 0-)

                    That stimulus plan you brag about?  It was written by some Republican leftovers from the Bush Administration (who helped get us into the mess in the first place).

                    That health care plan you're so proud of?  It's a ten-year-old Republican counter-proposal to our own health care plan.

                    Not to mention the Afghan Surge that we cut-and-pasted from Bush's Iraq Surge, and the Bush-era PATRIOT Act that we renewed.

                    If we are going to pretend to be Democrats, could we at least pretend to write our own fucking bills, instead of just signing our name to last year's Republican bills . . . ?

          Voters have not made a decision yet.  All they know is high unemployment so Dems = bad.

          They have not looked at the facts yet and they do no know about 80% of the nonsense that is going on with Repukes yet.

          •  I see (0+ / 0-)

            so the reason Dems are losing is because people are just stupid?

            In that case, I suggest a campaign slogan to replace "The other party is even WORSE!!!!!"--how about "Only a moran wouldn't vote Democrat!!!!!"

            See if that helps.

            they do no know about 80% of the nonsense that is going on with Repukes yet.

            Apparently they DO know, since they hate Repugs by an overwhelming majority. And it doesn't seem to be helping us any.

            Or didn't you read all those words and pictures at the top of this thread?

            (sigh)  No wonder we are getting our clocks cleaned.
