      But while Nancy Pelosi was still speaker.  Funny that OFA got active after the election.

      This aggression will not stand, man.

    •  and THAT'S the problem. Obama/Reid played (6+ / 0-)

      it "safe" leading up to 11/10, not wanting to push any tough votes (aka protect Blue Dog Dems) on taxes, UI, job creation, etc.  Pelosi was following orders, so to speak.

      So Indy/middle-moderate/undecided/confused voters had yet another example of how passive Dems can be in the face of determined RePugs.  And Dems got crushed.

      You'd think we/they would have that figured out by now...
