    Obama knowingly stumped for one of the most crooked governors in U.S. history. And that doesn't seem to bother a single liberal.

    Enjoy the next 12 months, libbos. By then, you're short, fruitless, day in the sun will be over, and we can start getting this this economy turned in the right direction.

    dems are being torn apart from within, from the left from the center

    that's what defeat will do to you

    Daily Kos: State of the Nation

    Election result: Red-state Dems worried, rethink agenda - Manu Raju and Jonathan Allen - POLITICO.com

    Election results rattle some Democrats -- latimes.com

    from the dean:

    Thanks Prof... good analysis as usual.

    I found it interesting what the far left Daily Kos had to say:

    1. If you abandon Democratic principles in a bid for unnecessary "bipartisanship", you will lose votes.
    2. If you water down reform in favor of Blue Dogs and their corporate benefactors, you will lose votes.
    3. If you forget why you were elected -- health care, financial services, energy policy and immigration reform -- you will lose votes.
    Sounds a bit like the vicious infighting (civil war) that the left has been accusing the GOP of lately doesn't it?

    Honestly I think it's the health care debate that is tearing this whole country apart. I personally would love to see a good health care bill with a public option on the the table, but I don't think the majority of Americans are ready for it yet.

    I think congress needs to put everything aside and take care of the economy. After we get the economy straight and more jobs are created, then Americans should be calm and ready for a real health care debate.

    If we continue down the path we are going, everyone is going to stay mad at the government and the Democratic party will lose seats.

    The problem is that Biden, Gibbs, and Obama keep touting that jobs are being created and that the economy is recovering.

    Yet the only thing moving upward is Wall Street. Jobs are not anywhere on the horizon, especially in the heavy union states, and it's making Obama look like a calculating politician more and more.

    The only states recovering.....are the red ones.

    And what's left of the economy will be obliterated if the government throws another $1.3 trillion at a government healthcare program, which by the way failed to even supply the country with H1N1 shots with a year's notice.

    Well what do you know, even a district that is historically Republican couldn't stomach the new conservative agenda.
    Better a conservative lost than a phony republican winning. Whats the point in going out to vote if both of the candidates share practically the same view? At least with the conservative candidate running there was a real choice.

But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    I agree. And the GOP should run those types of candidates nationwide in 2010.

    yeah....McCain was such a liberal

    McCain screwed himself when he wagered his integrity and tried to court the evangelicals. He further alienated moderates and independents when he chose Palin nutjob as her VP running mate. That is what sealed his doom.
