    Memento 2: The U.S. News Media

    Out of the total of 36% of eligible voters who voted in this year’s election, even if Republicans averaged a 10% margin of victory over Dems overall (55% to 45%), that means only 19% of American voters voted for Republicans. So Democrats should be running scared because 81% of U.S. voters didn’t vote for Republicans?

    An Open Letter to President Ob

    What do you do now that Republicans won a wave election? Just what Republicans did when Democrats won wave elections in 2008 and 2012. Become intransigent and refuse to work with them because America made clear they want a President who’ll block Republicans and represent their values. Easy peasy!

    Too many Americans have become “dumb” voters, they vote on little more than emotion. They feel upset at DC so they knee jerk vote for the party that doesn’t control the White House…even though it is the party they’re voting for that has caused the problems that led to their being upset.

Why Tuesday Went So Badly for Dems

I knew things were going to go badly in NY. I am no spring chicken, and the vast majority of voters were older than me (we’re trending into the 60-90 year old range).

Dems loser

The halo effect. Tip O’Neill said that all politics are local. Not last night. All politics were national. 6 years of negativity about the President paid off. Every election was a test of Obama’s popularity.

GOP crushes Dems

A lot of money has been spent on a tiny Missouri state assemby race by the GOP….by our estimates six times the average. Why? There is no way she was ever going to win. Why throw so much money at so small a race?
The Grand Strategy at Work!

Square Peg in a Round Hole

Has this ever worked? Have Democrats ever succeeded as a party by agreeing with Republicans, “I suppose you’re right, The President from our party IS a dick!”? If the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results, the Democratic Party may need to hold its next convention in Arkham Asylum.

Cowardly Boehner - PPOV

As part of their attempt to soften their image with voters just ahead of of next week’s election, top names from the GOP have donned their Halloween costumes and are offering a trick…or treat…for America.

Mitch McConnell

The Republican tension between satisfying the base and appealing to the entire electorate will be made significantly worse if the party controls both houses of Congress. The Republicans will get almost none of the practical things they want, and their political headaches will be multiplied.

Long holds up a copy of a magazine with an Ebola headline as public health officials testify before a House Energy and Commerce Oversight and Investigations Subcommittee hearing on the U.S. response to the Ebola crisis, in Washington

Safe to say more Americans have died from the flu in the past two weeks than from Ebola. Why are they not fear mongering about the flu?

What kind of example is being set at colleges where athletes are given a degree without having to actually go to class and study and learn like the non athletes do?
