Stop calling it an "Enthusiasm Gap"

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.

Yeah, Bob. As an extremely early Obama supporter (signs on lawn Feb 2008), I am thinking maybe Hillary would have been a better choice. Didn't like her as much but she can be tenacious. Too late now. We'll never know.

The most telling moment for me was when it became clear that LADY GAGA shpwed she had more balls than the Dem leadership.

You are only too right, Bob. Mua ha ha ha!

Wishing for the Democratic party to grow balls is like hoping for Rosie O'Donnell to get sexy. The raw materials aren't there.

Democrats are about to get a first-rate rogering, from which they will be washing dildo chunks out of their asses for months to come.

There will be more Americans voting for "The Situation" on Dancing With the Stars than casting votes for Democrats this year.

I assume you've seen the "Balls Beer" ad?

CT Bob said...

Brilliant satire!

You bet your delightfully fuzzy beard it's October once more!
Good to see you once more sir.
