I'm telling you NOW, YOU better remember 2010. And you better start remembering right now.

 Seriously, what? You think we just forgot to vote that year or something? Newsflash, that wasn't it. You see, I'm pretty sure I wasn't the only one pissed off. Count yourself lucky I didn't vote against you or just, didn't vote at all in 2010. I was pretty unhappy with you folks.
 I mean really, you have the House, the Senate AND the Presidency, and we end up with a law saying people MUST support the lifestyle of health care executive leeches like Bill McGuire?
 I expected better.

 Look Dems, I know it's a hard job, harder I'm sure than I can imagine. But it pays well, has health and dental, AND retirement. It's a better gig than most of us have.
AND, you wanted it.
 So, now that your contract has been extended to 2014, let me warn you. I expect alot from you for you to earn my continued support. I suggest you make strenuous efforts to better explain the issues we face and the ideals of the Democratic party, to all the people and not just the plugged in and the supporters. Us regular folk can understand if you explain it well. I suggest you do a better job of fighting back against the dishonesty of the opposition, a MUCH better job.
 But more than anything, I suggest you avoid making deals that piss off everyone, especially your base!  (Personally, I think you got lucky the opposition had such terrible candidates and marketing in 2012).

 I'll be watching. I'm hopeful. There's some big deals coming up soon now and as you go about that work I'm begging you to 'Remember 2010'.

 I'm not sure how many times more I can say to myself, 'Screw it, if they won't fight for me, I won't vote for them' before I don't.

 I'm serious. I am NOT kidding. No Grand Bargain.
I've been paying for the wealthy since Reagan and I'm damned tired out it.
(That's right, we figured it out. When you raise withholding taxes, borrow the surpluses from those program to cover the deficit as you give tax breaks to the rich, it means I'm paying for those tax cuts.)
 The Romneys of the world should be contributing more than 14% or less. You say you like the Buffet rule. Well so do I. How bout it Dems?

 Get some things done that please your base. That's gonna work out ALOT better for you in 2014 than pissing us off again.

Seriously, I would strongly advise you to 'Remember 2010'.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
