Response to Drunken Irishman (Original post)

28. Its all part of the plan.....to lose seats

In any other country in the world, the Republicans would be a pile of drying turds in the political dump. They do nothing, when they do it is to lower theirs and their wealthy friends taxes. They complain when not in power about deficits and then spend like sailors when in power. They spend their time in inquiries into blowjobs, or trumped up charges of failure to act like Benghazi. They even lied to the nation and tricked the public into a devastating war, taking advantage of a terrorist attack that they themselves allowed to happen through their own indifference. On top of it many of their politicians are proven to be bigots, racists, sexists, and homophobes.

As the late Bart of Bartcop drummed perpetually....all Dems had/have to do is communicate and hammer home the truths of Republican self-serving behaviour and how it directly and devastatingly affects the average American household.

So those in the right wing of the Democratic Party, which is getting larger by the year, the one thing they fear more than Republicans dominating both Houses, is Democrats in charge when Hillary is anointed. Because then there will be no excuses. The Democratic base will be expecting a more progressive agenda. They will expect negotiation over new wars. The pressure to serve the party base over her corporate base will be too uncomfortable. She will need the same shield that Obama makes use of. There was a sigh of relief in this circle no doubt after the 2010 midterms when Republicans took back the Senate.
