    Produced the gridlock we've seen since, the constant debt ceiling battles, sequestration, the offering of chained CPI that was apparently some sort of pre-concession, and any number of other problems that will make 2014 even tougher for Democrats than it would have been otherwise, it's difficult not to acknowledge those mid-terms were a turning point.

    It's been nothing but MISERY since 2010. Yes, Republicans take much of the blame, but Democrats share some of it, too.

    Enabling Republican trolling hasn't gotten them to stop doing it, it's encouraged them to do it more.

    Somebody has to do something, and it's just incredibly pathetic that it has to be us.

    •  No argument to anything you've said (0+ / 0-)

      but there's a qualitative difference between discouraging, fatalistic language (which the commenter above often uses), and a perspective that, while realistic about serious challenges we face, encourages action and involvement.
