    [QUOTE=NIMBY;1063945711]DEMs stayed home again, just as they did in the 2010 disaster and the one in 1994.
    After helping to man phone banks for two months, the apathy among DEMs can't be overlooked as a huge factor.


    Yes, I agree that Dems stayed home--because the candidates did not make their cases! They did not make voters feel like there was an advantage in voting Democratic. They did not push the progressive agenda in a believable manner. They did not make it clear what was at stake!

    What do you think was at stake?

    Look, when Obama ran for re-election in 2012, his campaign relied on attacks on Romney. He had very little to say about defending things he actually did up to that point. The "war on women" played big in his campaign.

    This year...at least here in Colorado...Udall avoided talking about his record of supporting Obama's policies and spent all his time attacking Gardner. And, again, the "war on women" played big in HIS campaign. Unfortunately, it didn't work this time.

    From what I saw, the same kind of thing played out in other States.

    That plays into what I was saying about the Democrats not embracing what they voted on.. Obama does have a record and much of it is very good and he certainly didn't backtrack on any of that during his campaign.

    No, he can only do so much with executive orders, not anything and everything!
