27. Dems defect because of weak leadership. That should not happen if we had strong Democratic

Leadership. But it made for a good excuse for betraying the voter on the PO, first to blame the Republicans, then when they were out of the picture, to blame the Blue Dogs.

So the voters took that to heart and kicked out the Blue Dogs, or most of them anyhow, then they BLAMED THE VOTERS.

Look, we are sick to death of the convoluted garbage we have been handed for so long now. Many of us began to wonder what was going on way back when so many Dems supported Bush's disastrous ME invasions. WE were the ones trying to make excuses, trying to blame the aftermath of 9/11 etc.

But we've had plenty of time since then to the whole scam play out and it is useless anymore to try to excuse the disaster of a government we have.

And the voters have spoken on that. One of the lowest turnouts in history!

Dems are supposed to fight for the people, not the Corporations.

This isn't rocket science, we HAVE a Corporate Party. Clearly the Dems have run out of excuses, for this HC Bill, opposed by so many Dems, including some of our best Elected Dems, and for their war mongering, drones, excuses for torture etc etc, letting War Criminals off the hook, bailing out Wall St Criminals, which they ALSO did without any help from Repubs.

THIS FORUM is intended to move along and away from all the excuses, apologists and explanations, we've heard them over and over again and we don't believe them.

Now we have to start from the point where we realized, 'our party has been taken over by the Third Way/DLC/Republican Lite which is what ACTUALLY explains all the problems with HC, War, Drones, Wall St etc', and decide 'where do we go from here'?
