  •  That's why the progressive base was so (4+ / 0-)

    unenthused?  It certainly was not because the Democratic Party was too far left.  The progressive base was disillusioned because the Democrats were too in the middle.  Good riddance to the DINOs!

    Politicians are like diapers. They should be changed frequently ... and for the same reason

        But one thing we know tonight.  The bipartisan approach taken by the Democratic President and Congress this last 2 years led to an electoral bloodbath.  On the other hand the Republican obstructionist further to the right obstructionist agenda paid off handsomely.  

        IMO we  better get some backbone and guts on our side soon for 2012!
        Are we going to cave and extend all the Bush tax cuts?  
        It's funny how much the Republicans got their way these last 2 years.  Can't imagine them changing tactics in the face of success in the next 2.  

        We catered to the middle and it cost us dearly.  Hope we learned our lesson tonight!
