  •  What terrifies the GOP base (7+ / 0-)

    is the House democratic caucus. It's female, it's brown, its gay, its not 100% Christian. It is America. The only thing they have left to fall back on is 2010 to try to preserve their remnant of power until 2020. We can't let up. After 2008, the pundits were saying the GOP was dead, that it would never win another national election for a generation. Then 2010 happened, with the Republicans harnessing white anger and a depressed democratic electorate in the worst possible year for us. We can't let that happen again.

      There is a reward for hard work well done. More hard work.
      If we as democrats really want to have the America that we dream about we are going to have to fight for it. I don't mean a test of arms, I mean a test of vision. We cannot focus on the short term win, we must think long term as in decades and centuries. What do we want to leave our children and their children and so on.
      Yes we must also be concerned about the present but we must also have long term goals. If we must drag the republicans along with us kicking and screaming fine. No one ever said it would be easy, but it is doable, and far more important, it is necessary.
