The reason Democrats are doing so poorly right now is because of a "LEADERSHIP GAP"!
We all worked like hell to win big in 2008. The promise of major reform was the goal for many of us.
Since then, our Democratic leadership has equivocated their positions and caved in to the Republicans and let them delay, reduce, or eliminate major progressive reforms.
President Obama, Speaker Pelosi, and Majority Leader Reid are largely responsible for this so-called "enthusiasm gap". Blaming the Democrats for their own failings isn't going to win us many seats in November. I truly wish our party would grow a collective set of balls.
We'll be lucky to keep a majority in either house of Congress. Not that 59 senators was EVER a workable majority in Harry Reid's Senate!
When our leaders insist on acting like sheep, they shouldn't be surprised when the wolves move in for a feast.
Yes, I'm annoyed. And feeling a bit cynical.
