  1. Richard, I agree with you that Obama and the Democrats cannot govern with the “my way or the highway” mentality, and that the Democrats must bring in what moderate Republicans are left and more independents. However we must use what will hopefully be a large Congressional majority to pass programs to put people to work, universal health care for all, and other important domestic programs, and the taxes on the wealthy must be raised to pay for these programs in addition to paying off the deficit left by Bush and the Repugs. Unfortunately Clinton and the Democrats did not deliver when the Democrats had a majority during Clinton’s first 2 years in office, which is why the Repugs won a majority in 1994, and then we got Bush when Clinton’s 2 terms were over. If the Democrats don’t take advantage of the opportunity that they will have to tackle the serious problems that beset this country while at the same time reaching out to more independents and the few moderate Republicans that are left, the right-wing Republicans will likely return to power. If Obama and the Democrats don’t screw up this time, as I said before I think that the Repugs will no longer be a viable political party.

  2. I don’t think it’s that.

    I think that people, after so many years of bush “prosperity” and policies are somewhat desperate, and crying ‘no mas!’.

    Which is not to say that rednecks + diebold won’t spring a surprise.

  3. I don’t get this term ‘Obama Republicans’ with him being so liberal… are these ‘Obama Republicans’ = to ‘people who will cut their nose off despite their face’? … wealthy people who want the government to take their money? If so, why didn’t they just cut the Treasury a check every time they got a tax break over the past 8 years?
