    Juanita, I'm sorry, but Obama himself put his own policies on the ballot, much to all the campaigning Democrats cringing. The same ballot that the electorate voted on.

    That was simply a freak of nature. You can't wait until the last minute,, when all the other candidates were letting Obama be dragged through the mud and where people were starting to believe the BS...the Democrats were not unified and there was no consensus in their message. They abandoned the President and their principles and got what they deserved!

    Go get 'em girl.
    Watch 'em flock to Nixon strategies when you compare the 2008 and 2014 economies--raise the negatives and drive down voter participation.

    I will say the DEMs number one mistake was not matching negative GOP ads on ACA that began last December.
    Not pounding on the government shutdown over Christmas as GOPs did on ACA.

    Giving in to Paul Ryan's omnibus in December so the government wouldn't shut down in 2014.
    Not answering tens of millions of Koch ads started in January on Kay Hagan in North Carolina forward.

    Having a DuNCe chief like Wasserman-Schultz who was even worse than now Sen. Kaine from VA was in 2010 .

    the progressive agenda doesn't sell as well as you think it does.

    No, they lost for being exposed as blatant liars and/or party puppets. 28 of the (all demorat) senators that voted for PPACA are no longer senators, likely to become 29 after the LA run-off contest dumps Landrieu too.

    That being said, I'm going to say what I said in regard to President Bush: wait a while. Obama's reputation will probably rebound somewhat in the next decade. People are always more disgusted or thrilled with the present candidates, and usually are much more respectful (if not romantic) toward the previous Presidents.


    I think that history will be very kind to this President. He set out certain goals and he accomplished most of them. Bush left office with what, a 35% approval rating. Obama is at 42% so not that bad but it will go up again. I understand that the President's party never does well in the midterms, but this was a disaster far beyond anyone's expectations and I do hold many of the candidates responsible!

    Propaganda spin my ass! I have strong feelings about this and I don't think when Obama said that, that he knew the dems were going to abandon and betray him.

    No one betrayed him. In fact the dem senate has been saving his ass from being the worst president we've ever had. His agenda is a soup of places America has never wanted to go. He made great speeches, but he never knew how to do any of it.

    This is why America prefers Governors as Presidents.
