"Do or Do not. There is no try."


  1. If we look back to 2010, the GOP hatched a strategy that would let them control things, even though they may have trouble with future demographics. They put a lot of money in winning the mid-terms in a census year. This means they could better gerrymander districts under the guise of the census. So, the Dems best hope is to win the White House and retake the Senate in 2016. Plus, the Dems need to run a better campaign and not shy away from economic or Obamacare’s success. As an Independent, the GOP’s platform is on the wrong side of most issues. BTG

  2. Americans have the Political Attention Span of a gnat.

    Americans want instant gratification. They want results after one round.

    They voted for Obama; now don’t ask us to hang around for the State elections too. We already did our job.

  3. We are awash in articles by authors gnashing their teeth over the damage being done by the Republicans in national and state government. But what I don’t see is the basic acceptance that it was the voters who put them in place. It’s one thing to identify the damage being done by the Scott Walker’s of the country, but another to acknowledge that in the end, we are getting exactly what we asked for.

    Is it voter turnout? Voter apathy? the continuously mixed messages by the democrats, who can’t seem to agree on the time of day? Whatever it is, it unquestionably is time to stop blaming the Republicans, (they are only the symptom) and start addressing the real issue.

    • It is the Republicans who are doing everything they can to undermine voting rights and democracy itself. For this reason alone, you get what you get, more republicans. Their agenda is in no way reflective of the supposed ideals they espouse as representative of this country. Republicans continue to undermine tax equality, public education, Voter registration, the middle class, poor and low income constituent’s, women’s health and unions. Yes, all of these things have to be addressed however republicans have to be willing partners instead of willing obstructionist’s.

      • I agree with your points, but in the end, it was the voters who put the RepubliCANTS into office in the first place.

      • You’re absolutely correct. Until voters open their eyes, the cycle will continue.
