Yes, Reid and Pelosi and Hoyer, etc. are old, very old. They lost big last year. Time to clean house, because they've over-stayed their welcome. It bothers me that there is so little willingness in the party to criticize leadership or band together to influence policies. The women in the Republican House banded together and forced their leadership to drop a draconian abortion bill. Republicans!
I would love to see it plastered across the Populist Reform main page.
is to primary them?They're not going quietly and I don't see their fellow dems voting in the new batch. What does that say for all of our existing dems?
Its time for a revolution: Bankrupt policies, historic losses call for new generation of leaders
As a wise man once said, never underestimate the capacity of an entire social order to commit suicide. The Democratic Partys old order is doing it now. It may seem strange but make no mistake, the Democrats leaders are already unconscious. If they dont wake up soon, theyll go the way of the Whigs. If progressives dont wake up now, theyll go with them.
Progressives have long cohabited with Democrats. The relationship, while abusive, is hard for them to quit. Starting over is always scary, and building movements is hard even in good times, so the temptation is strong to keep on doing what theyre doing. Besides, how can you tell the Democrats are really dead? You cant call in a coroner or poke them with a stick. Its simple, really. All you have to do is look.
Life is change and these Democrats never change. Its like watching Groundhog Day but without laughs, a love interest or a learning curve. Democrats in Congress ran the same race in 2014 they ran in 1994, lost badly, and then reelected all their leaders. Obama handled the budget this year the same way he does every year, with the same result. Hillary Clinton is poised to run the same awful race in 2016 she ran in 2008.
And when voters heard the excuses, 'it's not our fault, it's the Blue Dogs' fault' they took it seriously and kicked them out in two mid terms now.
And the leadership both times, took the wrong message from the voters, again, and BLAMED THE VOTERS.
It's getting old, the 'populist' campaign TALK. And it appears voters are not buying it anymore.
