  •  Dems do fight (0+ / 0-)

    We fight.

    But we need to focus on the real enemy this time and that enemy is GOP obstructionists.  The pressure needs to be applied more to the GOP and not the leadership and Obama.  We have to step up and show him that we're willing to hold the GOP's feet to the fire.  

    •  Exactly how are you going to do that? (1+ / 0-)

      And are you in congress or work for someone who is? "We" are not "them".

        That's the question we need to answer.  That's the real challenge here.

        •  I'd think we've had enough time to ponder that (2+ / 0-)

          I know how, though. Organize a tea party-like movement against the GOP and their corporate backers, but more mainstream than OWS. Ideally it would be coordinated with OFA, but if they're not willing to help for fear of looking too "partisan" (which I always thought was stupid, because the essense of politics is partisanship leading to principled compromise), we can do it alone.
