  •  They have not been straight with us (6+ / 0-)

    that's the problem.

    Some talk a good game, then they side with the Repugs...hence. huge loses in November.

    •  I think most of the ones who sided w the GOP (6+ / 0-)

      i.e., the Ben Nelsons of the world, actually have been pretty clear how not left they are.

      I don't agree w the Blue Dogs, but I can't see as how they've engaged in the same mindless pagentry as we're seeing from the GOP right now.

        upon becoming Speaker of the House promised:

        "And the American people told us they expected us to work together for fiscal responsibility, with the highest ethical standards and with civility and bipartisanship.

        "After years of historic deficits, this 110th Congress will commit itself to a higher standard: pay as you go, no new deficit spending. Our new America will provide unlimited opportunity for future generations, not burden them with mountains of debt.

        "In order to achieve our new America for the 21st Century, we must return this House to the American people. So our first order of business is passing the toughest congressional ethics reform in history. This new Congress doesn't have two years or 200 days.

        "Let us join together in the first 100 hours to make this Congress the most honest and open Congress in history - 100 hours.

        That's not what happened...obviously.
