Sometimes I Get Discouraged

I don’t know what was more discouraging yesterday, the Republicans winning in so many places or top progressives like Alan Grayson and Russ Feingold losing.

In my state of Pennsylvania, the Republicans really won big. They took the Governor position. Crazy former Constitutional Party wacko Pat Toomey defeated my congressman Joe Sestak for Senate. Bryan Lentz lost Sestak’s old congressional seat and my friend Barbara McIlvaine Smith lost her state house seat.

Not only did Proposition 19 lose in California, but three Judges from around the nation who have ruled in support for gay rights were all defeated as well.

But the worst part is that some Democrats are still trying to make the case that Obama did a great job in his first two years. I hate to break it to these people, but the time to make that case has passed. You can’t wait until after the election to start campaigning for that election. The fact is that Obama should have made that case during the summer when the Tea Baggers were having their racist rallies. Instead, the Democratic Party waited until two months before the election to say anything and we are still waiting for them to do something.

Some people say that this election will be a wake up call to Obama to stop trying to work with the Republicans and to actually fight back, but I don’t think he is awake just yet. The most discouraging part of last night’s election wasn’t really the huge losses, but the sad truth that the Democrats won’t learn from their mistake. They will most likely try to do the same thing and expect a different result. They will attempt to appease the Republicans and to try to seek compromise despite the fact that the Republicans have yet to compromise and have stated that when they retake the House they will not compromise.

The Republicans are the Party of no. The scary thing is that since the Democrats don’t seem to understand what that means, in two years the Republicans will probably be the Party of yes… to large corporations and the Christian Right.

    In his haste to bail out the banks and wall street, which needed to be done to save millions of pension funds, Obama doomed the mid terms by not tempering some of that relief to help correct the unemployment problem which represents a majority of the voters. So the people that benefited, used that error in judgement to use it against him. So now the only thing that he did get through to help the average Joe, health care reform, will now be repealed. Tax cuts will now go back to the rich, the economy will get worse, and conservatives will be swept back into total power. Good luck shortsighted Americans.

    The Health Care reform was actually pretty weak and mostly helped the health insurance industry. I don’t think the Republicans will repeal that. But I do think they will create a health care bill of their own to make the problem even worse than Obama did. In addition to mandatory insurance, they will allow insurance to be sold over state lines which will squeeze out smaller insurance companies and allow the state with the weakest regulations to act as the corporate headquarters for all the insurance companies nationally (as is the case with credit card companies in Delaware).
