  •  this is just a variation... (4+ / 0-)

    ...of the debunked myth that liberals did not vote in 2010.  It is bullshit.

    •  Um, we lost. So either there weren't enough (0+ / 0-)

      Dems period to win or... not enough came out to vote. So you'd better hope you're wrong because you're implying that DESPITE coming out in big numbers, we still could not prevail.

      So which is it.

      Explain that bullshit, please.

      •  Many Dems won't vote for Republicans. (0+ / 0-)

        When Democrats act like Republicans, many Democrats refuse to vote for them.

        You can't really blame them.  Why would they vote for them?

        This was Truman's dictum.

        •  And then... (0+ / 0-)

          Real Tea partyists win.

          Guess what, if you think things are bad now, consider what unassailable majorities of "True, God Fearing, bible-bashing tub-thumping, Conservatives" running the government will be like.

          Sure, you can stay at home and justify to your self that action.  You can sit in your armchair and wallow in your smug satisfaction that you "Really showed that EVIL Obama" While 10's of millions of Americans see their benefits cut, thrown on the streets.  And those cuts are happening now, under a republican house of representatives.

          If it takes holding your nose and closing your eyes to tick that box and register that vote, do it.  Then fight for the policies you want...

          ...Because you can be damned sure that the Republicans will.

        And it especially didn't show up to vote for Blue Dogs.  

        The Democratic Party loyalists showed up.

      •  35% democrats... (0+ / 0-)

        ...35% Republican
        ...and 30% middle.

        And I said liberal not democrats.
