  •  We Could Have Kept the House We Had in 2010. (9+ / 0-)

    And ignored Ed Schultz's call not to get out and vote.

    That election result had much deeper repercussions at state levels than at the federal level, and the federal level result was bad enough.

    Now thanks to GOP-controlled state legislatures and governorships, the national GOP has put an even tighter hold on its ability to retain control of the House.

    Until President Obama actually signs Social Security and Medicare cuts into law, then I'll agree with you that he is a "sellout."

      in april 2010. it was a tough year.I was completely out of the loop.

      And ignored Ed Schultz's call not to get out and vote.
      Talk about shooting your self in the foot. I've never heard of this. That fucker "was" a republican...
      I remember his response to that first debate, and he strikes me as a "visceral" individual, sort of rough around the edges, even a bit gruff.

      The Democrats now own everything from the center right to the far left. the republicans and the filthy robberbarons occupy the extreme right fringe.

        About a month or two before Election Day.

        He's just another part of the circular firing squad that some liberals like to engage in. People talk about what a great union guy he is. Well, urging people not to vote sure as hell didn't help unions in states like WI, OH, and MI.

          My word to my "buddies" will always be of encouragement.
          U.S. ARMY = Uncle Sam ain't released me yet. Soldiering taught me a great deal about being invested in your team.
          Never undercut your own. Disipline when called for, but do not fight with your own, ESPECIALLY IN PUBLIC.
