    ... not to piss off their base nor let Republicans get away with a constant stream of lies in a census year.  sadly, 2014 is already beginning to look like a repeat of that.

    I'm a blue drop in a red bucket.

      doubt it.  I mean even Chris Matthews said we needed to calm down and show up.  And I am NO Tweety fan.  He okay.  But he was outright begging us to show up.  He did numerous shows.

      But honestly, as I remember Kos and others saying at the time.  The Democrats had the House and a Supermajority.  WE HAD BOTH!  And we still can't get a Public Option at least?

      My brother knows fuckall about politics and knew the Stimulus was not enough.  Pelosi and others even to this day try to tell us we are crazy and Chained CPI is a good thing.

      I say fuck this, in safe districts we need to primary.  Go all in.

      I say NO HILLARY.  We can get a true left strong Democratic President.  Nationally we have nothing to lose.
